No Way Home is Sony’s best debut album at the box office
Spider-Man: No Path Home was always going to make a lot of money. Pandemic aside, people have been scrambling to see this movie for the past two years, both because they love Tom Holland and because it’s extract that nostalgia bringing back old cinematic villains – some beloved, some not so, and also Sandman – for another series of CG superhero shows. Well that and people want to know if the movie do the thing.
Even with all of that, though, it’s pretty crazy how far this movie has got to be out in a short period of time. Through Deadline, No way home became both the world’s third greatest opener of all time and Sony’s greatest film ever with $ 587.2 million at the time of writing. It helps that the film got a head start by releasing a few days earlier in the UK and Ireland, and that word of mouth (which naturally included spoilers) made people want to see it even more. For 2021, this is the sixth best opening of the year, and the sixth film never cross the $ 500 million mark at launch. The film still does not have a China release date, as Shang-Chi and Eternals before that.
Nationally, it currently sits at $ 253 million, becoming both the highest grossing film of the year and the third best domestic debut film of the month.. This honor was previously detained through Star Wars: The Force Awakens at $ 247.9 million, and No way home just a few million away from another Marvel movie Avengers: Infinity War ($ 257.7 million) in second place.
If your name wasn’t Peter Parker, then people just weren’t really interested in seeing your movie. It’s particularly bad for Guillermo del Toro Alley of nightmares, which opened the same day and debuted in fifth place nationwide at $ 3M. So it is safe to say that even with Matrix in a few days, No way home going to have long legs, potentially billions of dollars.
