Already $ 587 million at the box office: the historic start of Spider-Man: No Way Home

The latest Marvel is making its way into the annals of cinema. After its first weekend of exploitation, the last film in the trilogy worn by Tom Holland exceeds all expectations.

Friday night, after his first day in American theaters Spider-Man: No Way Home had already raised $ 121.5 million. An absolutely dantesque launch, well beyond what analysts had predicted for the new Marvel, supposed to bring in $ 130 million to $ 150 million over the weekend …

Tom Holland and Zendaya did better. Much better: at the end of the last Sunday sessions, Spider-Man: No Way Home was in at $ 253 million at the US box office, in 4,336 theaters in North America. Simply huge. This is obviously – and by far – the best opening for a film in the USA in 2021 and especially since the health crisis. No other COVID-era film has been able to cross the $ 100 million mark in a single weekend. The Spider-Man, him, squarely exceeds 250 (in history, only 7 other films have made more than 200 million dollars in a single weekend) and is stronger than Star wars 7 in 2015 ($ 247 million) or Star wars 8 in 2017 ($ 220 million).

First day France: Spider-Man has the best start of 2021

Spider-Man: No Way Home enters the box office record books as 3rd best startup ever, behind the untouchable Avengers: Endgame ($ 357 million) and a breath ofAvengers: Infinity War ($ 257 million in 2017).

And internationally, Peter Parker is also in Olympic form! An additional $ 334.2 million, gleaned from 60 international markets, for a worldwide total of $ 587.2 million since its release last Wednesday. Suffice to say a mountain of greenbacks and a historic score, which ranks the superhero on the third step of the podium “ever” for the best launches at the global box office – again behind Avengers: Endgame ($ 1.2 billion) and Avengers: Infinity War ($ 640 million).

What to expect from the post-credits scenes in Spider-Man: No Way Home?

“The historic results of Spider-Man: No Way Home, around the world and in the face of many challenges, reaffirm the unparalleled cultural impact that cinema films can have when made and marketed with vision and determination ” rejoices the CEO of Sony Pictures in a euphoric statement.

We will finally note – as a symbol of unchallenged domination – that 5 Marvel films occupy the first 5 places of the best launch weekends at the US box office:
