‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’ is Now Second Biggest Opening Weekend Ever!
With a premiere weekend already breaking records, it appears as though Peter Parker’s newest MCU adventure isn’t done yet: Spider-Man: No Way Home is now the second-biggest opening weekend ever!
The Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios juggernaut of a film has just reached a new level of success, as it has surpassed yet another film on the list of all-time opening weekend box office success.
Many expected a dominant outing for the Spider-Man film, but no one could have anticipated the massive opening weekend the film ended up having.
We followed previous reports that marked the film opening weekend as the third-highest mark ever; with that status being updated as Spider-Man: No Way Home is now the second-biggest opening weekend ever.
Despite the recent wave of COVID-19 outbreaks due to the Omnicron variant, the film experienced a $64.18 million Sunday that pushed the total opening weekend to over $260 million.
The Sunday number follows a $121 million first day – which is second to all-time box office topper Avengers: Endgame – and a $73.9 million second day.
The biggest opening weekend in box office history is a title that goes to another Marvel project, Avengers: Endgame, which amassed a ridiculous $357 million opening.
Spider-Man: No Way Home’s dominant opening box office is a reflection of both the adoration of the character of Peter Parker and the incredible amount of fan theorizing and expectation place on the film for almost a year.
With rumors and speculation surrounding the film for months prior to release, the anticipation as to what rumors were true built the anticipation to a palpable level.
With advance ticket sales nearly crashing the internet was a sign of things to come for the third Spider-Man solo film produced by Marvel Studios and with three more being planned, it seems as though the character is primed for a similar response to his next film as fans seek what’s next for Peter Parker.
