SPIDER-MAN: NO WAY HOME’s $260M kept our dials spinning in week 51. The $447M total for all pictures was 94% of the same week in 2019, the highest percentage for any week in 2021 compared to the same week in 2019. If you had to pick one week in the year to have your best comp, why not pick the highest-grossing week of 2019? That was enough to raise the fourth quarter comparison by six percentage points, surging from 63% to 69%. The year-to-date number climbed three percentage points from 36% to 39%. These giant leaps ahead kept the industry within range of meeting 70% for the quarter and 40% for the year, with just one final week to go.
