Box Office Report for the Week of September 4th (Labor Day Weekend)

This past weekend was National Cinema Day, which resulted in a number of sold-out showings throughout Europe and North America.

I'm not sure about you, but yesterday when I browsed the websites of my local movie theatres, the majority of showings of practically every movie were either sold out or nearly sold out.

Spider-Man: No Way Home has recovered the top spot at the box office, capping off a successful summer. 

 The film was re-released in theatres with 11 more minutes of content, and despite having little to no marketing support,

 it was nevertheless able to gross an additional $6 million in 3,935 locations.

This week saw the release of several other films. Re-released in IMAX 2D and 3D, Steven Spielberg's Jaws earned $2.3 million in 1,246 theatres, placing it in tenth place overall. 

That's fairly great for a movie that's almost 50 years old, but the IMAX remaster is incredible (and positive reviews about the 3D conversion were written, 

 though they shouldn't be confused with 1983's Jaws 3D, which is a completely different movie).

As for this week's latest releases, honk for Jesus. Save Your Soul., the only "new" tentpole release of the week, came in at number fourteen with a total of $1.4 million.
