NEW YORK (AP) — On a chillingly quiet weekend at movie theaters, “Spider-Man: No Way Home” again topped the box office in its seventh week of release.

January is traditionally a slow month for moviegoing and that’s been especially true this year, in part because the omicron variant of the coronavirus prompted some postponements. But even before a blizzard forced some theaters to close in the Northeast, the weekend was set to be among the most muted of the past year.

With scant competition, Sony Pictures’ “Spider-Man: No Way Home” has accounted for a huge percentage of the month’s ticket sales. Studio estimates Sunday say it grossed $11 million over the weekend, bringing its domestic total to $735.9 million.
