Spider-Man: No Way Home has not shined at the box office since its release, and by Christmas weekend the film had set a benchmark of grossing $ 100 million in domestic collections. It is reported that this will be the first pandemic era film to cross the $ 1 billion mark at the global box office on Sunday.
According to a report on Variety, the superhero trilogy led by Tom Holland added $ 19.6 million to 4,336 domestic theaters on Friday, accelerating the film’s gross to $ 92 million to $ 100 million over the traditional weekend. Many new movies (The Matrix Resurrections, Singh 2, The King’s Man) are huge box office receipts as they open nationwide for significant ticket sales.
The latest Spidey adventure is reported to gross $ 478 million in domestic theaters in the first 10 days. At $ 224 million, it’s more than double the next highest grossing films of Marvel’s Shang-Chi and Legend of the Ten Rings.
The original film, starring Maguire in 2002, was the first film in film history to gross more than $ 100 million in its first weekend.
The No Way Home plot takes place directly from Far From Home in 2019, with Peter Parker publicly unleashing the villain Mysterio.
In order for No Way Home to gross $ 1 billion worldwide, the film definitely needs to do well in China, where no release date has yet been allowed.
With No Way Home easily retaining number one on the domestic box office charts, Universal’s animated musical comedy Singh 2 has overtaken its co – newcomer Warner Bros.’s sci-fi sequel The Matrix Recursions to second place.
According to the deadline, it will be the first film to cross the Pandemic milestone and coincide with Avengers: Infinity War, the fastest-ever $ 1B (and so does China). It has already crossed $ 900M globally, including figures for domestic Fridays and international Fridays.
Directed by Tom Holland, the film grossed $ 876.0 million worldwide and became the highest grossing Hollywood film of the year. On Wednesday, it broke MGM’s James Bond’s consecutive No Time to Die record of $ 774 million globally.
Meanwhile, the film has become the biggest opener of the year in India. The film, which hit theaters on December 16, surpassed Rohit Shetty’s Suryavanshi’s.
