“Spider-Man: No Way Home,” also starring Holland, continued its historic run, raking in another $9 million for third place and bringing its 10- week domestic total to over $771.9 million, third all-time.

Last weekend’s top-grossing film, “Death on the Nile,” was fourth with $7.5 million in its second week in theaters.

“Jackass Forever” was fifth with $6.2 million in its third week.

Rounding out the top 10 domestic releases, as estimated by Comscore, were “Marry Me” ($4.3 million), “Sing 2” ($3.8 million), “Scream” ($2.3 million), “Blacklight” ($2 million) and “The Cursed” ($2 million).
