‘Spider-Verse’ Dominates Box Office and Surpasses $560 Million Worldwide While ‘Flash’ Disappoints

**Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse** Reclaims No. 1 Spot at Box Office

After a challenging start, “Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse” has swung its way back to the top of the box office ranks. The animated sequel, featuring Shameik Moore as the teenage webslinger Miles Morales, reclaimed the No. 1 spot in its fourth week in North American theaters, grossing $19.3 million. This achievement has brought the total domestic earnings of the Sony film to an impressive $317.1 million, with a worldwide haul of $560.3 million.

**Elemental** Holds Steady at Second Place

“Elemental” held on to its second-place position for the second consecutive week, earning an estimated $18.5 million. The film, which experienced Pixar’s worst three-day opening last week, continues to perform solidly at the box office.

**The Flash** Sees Steep Decline in Box Office Revenue

Unfortunately, “The Flash” experienced a significant drop in box office revenue, grossing only $15.2 million in its second week. This marks a 72% decline from its lackluster opening of $55 million. The film, starring Ezra Miller, has struggled to meet expectations, especially given its high production budget of $200 million.

The Impact of Off-Screen Behavior on **The Flash’s** Performance

Some industry experts attribute the challenges faced by “The Flash” to Ezra Miller’s off-screen behavior, which has included arrests and misconduct. Miller has expressed remorse for his actions and sought mental health treatment. Nevertheless, these factors appear to have impacted the film’s box office performance.

**No Hard Feelings** Opens at Fourth Place

Starring Jennifer Lawrence and Andrew Barth Feldman, the raunchy comedy “No Hard Feelings” made its debut in fourth place with $15.1 million. The film tells the story of a teenager whose parents hire a woman (played by Lawrence) to boost his confidence through dating.

**Transformers: Rise of the Beasts** Maintains Steady Performance

In its third week, “Transformers: Rise of the Beasts” earned $11.6 million, bringing its total earnings to $122.9 million. The film continues to attract audiences, indicating its sustained popularity.

**Asteroid City** Surprises with Strong Performance

Wes Anderson’s “Asteroid City” performed better than expected, grossing $9 million. The film managed to secure a respectable placement ahead of other movies despite initial uncertainties.

**The Little Mermaid** Remains a Steady Earner

“The Little Mermaid” generated $8.6 million in box office revenue, bringing its overall total to over $270 million. The film continues to captivate audiences with its adaptation of the beloved classic.
