If you’re looking for to watch something outside of the superhero genre, “Crawl” and “Stuber” hit the box office this weekend. The two films battled “Spider-Man: Far From Home” and “Midsommar” in theaters across the country, and both movies needed a big opening weekend before Disney’s “The Lion King” dominates the box office next weekend.
The new releases weren’t a problem for “Spider-Man: Far From Home,” which made another $45M over the weekend. Now in its second week in theaters, Spidey has a $274.5M domestic total. Jon Watts directed “Spider-Man Far From Home,” which stars Tom Holland, Jake Gyllenhaal, Marisa Tomei, Zendaya, Jon Favreau, and Samuel L. Jackson.
Disney’s “Toy Story 4” also beat the new releases, bringing in another $20.6M across 4,210 locations. The film released four weeks ago and sits with a $346.3M domestic total. Josh Cooley directed “Toy Story 4,” which features the voice talents of Tom Hanks, Tim Allen, Annie Potts, Tony Hale, Keegan-Michael Key, Jordan Peele, Keanu Reeves, Christina Hendricks, Joan Cusack, Bonnie Hunt, and Kristen Schaal.
“Crawl,” from Paramount Pictures, was the top new release this week, bringing in $12M at 3,170 locations nationwide. Alexandre Aja directed “Crawl,” which stars Kaya Scodelario and Barry Pepper. FOX’s “Stuber” wasn’t too far behind, bringing in $8M across 3,050 locations.

As we mentioned earlier, next week is the release of Disney’s “The Lion King.” The film is opening unopposed but Quentin Tarantino’s “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” is opening the following week. The summer box office opens up after that, with “Hobbs & Shaw” releasing the first weekend in August, followed by “The Art of Racing in the Rain,” “Dora and the Lost City of Gold,” “The Kitchen,” and “Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark” opening on August 9th.
