Sony’s ‘Spider-Man,’ and Disney’s ‘Encanto’ Top 2021’s Box Office Charts

With only a couple of days left of 2021, we thought it was a good time to check out the numbers on the year’s theatrical box office to see which movies fared well despite the ongoing Covid pandemic and competition from streaming services. Not surprisingly, Sony’s mega blockbuster Spider-Man: No Way Home is sitting high and triumphant on top of the charts with a nice $$572,621,855  in the U.S. and a smashing worldwide take of $1,161,332,000 even though it was only released on December 17.  On the animation side, Disney’s Colombian musical extravaganza Encanto danced it way into the hearts of audiences, bringing in $90,642,581 in the U.S. and a total of $194,840,032 worldwide. Universal/Illumination’s Sing 2 is also doing very well both stateside and globally, landing in the number two spot with $$74,900,785 in the U.S. and a worldwide $79,721, 124 cume, even though it only premiered stateside on Dec. 22.
