Top Gun: Maverick defeats Spider-Man: No Way Home for first place as moviegoers enjoy $3 tickets on National Cinema Day

Cinema Day had audiences flocking to movie theaters across the country on Saturday as they could see movies for as little as $3.

The latter film is already the highest-grossing feature film of the year, surpassing $700 million ahead of Labor Day.

Marvel’s re-release of Spider-Man grossed $7.6 million in just four days after its return to screens.

To that end, Sony is proclaiming it the weekend’s biggest hit, though box office analysts are torn over which of the two blockbusters reigns supreme.

The outlet also reported that films in the top 10 saw “100%-257% fluctuations from Friday to Saturday.”

For Top Gun specifically, Saturday saw a 139% increase to a total of $2.6 million. And for the entire weekend, Paramount counted a total of $7 million.

EntTelligence Chief Strategy Officer Steve Buck described the weekend as an overall performance.

He said: “The success of National Cinema Day was measured by the number of visitors this past weekend.

“It was about bringing back audiences that were still apprehensive about going back to the cinema and rewarding loyal moviegoers.

“This is probably the first time that cinema visits have been opposed to a specific film. Overall, the industry has been successful.”

It stands in stark contrast to the previous weekend, which was the busiest weekend of the summer.

Other films that thrived over the holiday weekend included DC League of Super-Pets, Bullet Train and The Invitation.

Moviegoers only had a few days to get ready for the one-day affair as the cinema day announcement was made on Sunday 28th August.
