‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’ Exceeds $587 Million at Global Box Office!
The movie event of the year is continuing to defy the odds, and go where no movie of the last two years has gone before, as Spider-Man: No Way Home exceeds $587 Million at the global box office!
One of the great triumphs of the contemporary cinema land space, Spider-Man: No Way Home has proven to truly be in a league of its own, with the film already staking a claim as Sony’s best opening at the global box office ever.
Being reported by Deadline, it appears as though the fact that Spider-Man: No Way Home exceeds $587 Million at the global box office has placed it among the top three global box office openers ever.
The film is in rare air as it is just one of six movies to surpass $500 Million in an opening window – with it also entering into the top six of global box office performers of 2021, nearly instantly surpassing all Marvel entries of this year.
What makes the feat all the more impressive is the context surrounding its achievement, with the film pulling these fantastic global box office numbers while still not being released in China.
The pandemic’s near crippling of the industry has left a market base hesitant to return to cinemas – with Spider-Man: No Way Home existing as the first truly dominant outing for a film – now that a film surpassing the $100 million mark has become a rarity.
However, it was the lack of a Chinese audience that is believed to have limited the global earnings of Black Widow, Shang-Chi, and Eternals, with many expecting this to carry over into the box office response to Peter Parker’s latest MCU installment.
The Chinese market has proven to be the biggest in the world; however, censorship has made an MCU release in the country harder by the day.
As Spider-Man: No Way Home exceeds $587 million at the global box office, it becomes just the second film ever to surpass $500 million without a Chinese audience.
The film should only continue to climb various all-time lists and etch its name into record books as Spider-Man: No Way Home has created the masterful story of Peter Parker, and it’s truly one of the greatest Marvel creations of all time.
