Spider-Man: Far From Home is celebrating another weekend at No. 1. Fresh counterprograming like the horror movie Crawl and the action-comedy Stuber barely made a dent in the web-slinger's earnings, the AP reports. Studios on Sunday estimate that the Spider-Man sequel added $45.3 million, bringing its domestic total to $274.5 million. Toy Story 4 landed in second place with $20.7 million in its fourth weekend in theaters.

But the original newcomers struggled. Crawl, a thriller from Paramount Pictures, debuted in third with an estimated $12 million. And Stuber got off to a bumpy start as well, with an estimated $8 million from over 3,000 North American locations. The R-rated Kumail Nanjiani and Dave Bautista film cost a reported $16 million to produce. It's the latest Fox film to be released by Disney.
