The new part of the “Spider-Man” series of films entitled “No Way Home” has won historical revenues that gave a strong dose of support to the film industry, which is relying heavily on this work to stimulate box office revenues after the significant deterioration due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The remake of the adventures of Spider-Man brought in the third-biggest box office in the early days of North American history, with $253 million in revenue over the weekend, according to estimates published by Examiner Relations on Sunday.
This amount exceeds the expectations of specialists who were counting on revenues of 150 million dollars. The new film also achieved the best launch of any work produced by the company “Sony”, according to the site “Deadline”.
And “Exciter Relations” expects the new blockbuster to be on track to reach an international revenue level of $600 million.
Sony is still the last of the traditional Hollywood studios to not have its own video-on-demand platform, which makes the success of the new Spider-Man movie all the more amazing.
David A., an expert at Franchise Entertainment Research, said: Gross said, “This is an amazing start.” And while most major movie franchises struggle to maintain their success, “Spiderman is flying,” Gross says.
No movie achieved such revenue at launch, with the exception of “Avengers: Endgame” ($357 million) and “Avengers: Infinity War” ($258 million) in the box office history in the United States and Canada, according to the “Box Office Mojo” website.
for the third time
British actor Tom Holland in “Spiderman: No Way Home” retained the role of the famous Spider-Man for the third time. The red and blue suit previously worn by Tobey Maguire and then Andrew Garfield broke records at the box office.
The original 2002 movie “Spider-Man” was the first movie in movie history to cross $100 million in its first weekend of release.
Omicron in the lookout
The story continues where the previous installment (Spider-Man: Far From Home) ended in 2019, with the identity of the real Spider-Man Peter Parker exposed by the evil Mysterio.
With the help of another Marvel character, Doctor Strange, played by Benedict Cumberbatch, the student tries hard to recreate the mystery around him.
With these record revenues, the superhero achieved the greatest success of a movie since the release of the last movie in the Star Wars series in 2019, that is, before the Covid 19 pandemic, and no movie since then has exceeded the threshold of one hundred million dollars immediately upon its launch.
But despite the recovery in the movement of American cinemas this year, even in light of the continued imposition of restrictions and closure measures (observers are counting on recording revenues in 2021, twice those recorded last year), the sector is still far from returning to its normal movement, especially with the outbreak of the mutant Omicron. .
topping the list
The new Spider-Man movie box-office hit the box office this week. Disney’s animated movie “Incanto” with music by Lin-Manuel Miranda came second last weekend with $6.3 million in revenue, according to Expeter Relations. Also, films aimed at older audiences, including the remake of “West Side Story”, which was released in international theaters ten days ago by Steven Spielberg, have generally failed publicly.
