Spider-Man: No Way Home had a super opening weekend as it brought in $253 million at the box office. This made it easily the largest opening weekend since the pandemic struck in 2020. Globally, the film brought in $587.2 million. This made it the third largest global opening weekend ever behind Avengers: Endgame and Avengers: Infinity War which opened at $1.2 billion and $670 million respectively.
“This weekend’s historic ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’ results, from all over the world and in the face of many challenges, reaffirm the unmatched cultural impact that exclusive theatrical films can have when they are made and marketed with vision and resolve,” says Tom Rothman, Sony Pictures Motion Picture Group chairman and CEO.
This historic weekend opening for the newest Spider-Man film obviously won the weekend box office. In a distant second place, Encanto brought in $6.5 million. West Side Story and Ghostbusters: Afterlife were vying for third place at $3.4 million each.
With the amount of excitement and word of mouth, generally it would be expected for a film like Spider-Man: No Way Home to have a solid second weekend. However, COVID-19 cases continue to rise so it remains to be seen how the movie will continue on in the coming weeks at the box office. What is known is that it had a historic and competitive opening weekend with some of the top movies of all time despite the global pandemic.
