Spider-Man: No Way Home has shattered records to become one of the most successful superhero films in recent years in its opening week.
Besides that fact, it is among the top three the best openings of all time behind Avengers: Endgame with a whopping $357.1 million and Avengers: Infinity War with a lump sum of $257.7 million.
The superhero continuation grossed a staggering $253 million dollars only on its opening weekend. This means that the film, which stars Tom Holland, Zendaya, Benedict Cumber and many more in an action packed sequel has already secured themselves as 2021’s biggest opening weekend.
It goes on top of Venom: Let There Be Carnage, another sequel set in the Spider-Man World.
“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,” said Chairman and CEO of Sony Pictures Tom Rothman in a statement.
“All of us at Sony Pictures are deeply grateful to the fabulous talent, both in front of and behind the camera, that produced such a landmark film.”
The film’s worldwide total has reached $587.2 million, with international theaters earning an impressive amount of $334.4 million within just five days of showing.
Holland has continuously told audiences over the years of playing as Spider-Man, “I’ve loved every minute of it. I’ve been so grateful to Marvel and Sony for giving us the opportunity and keeping us on and allowing our characters to progress. It’s been amazing.”
“That’s why for me,” he added, “I don’t want to say goodbye to Spider-Man — but I feel like we might be ready to say goodbye to Spider-Man.”
The producers of the film have not announced anything concerning Spider-Man’s future. Regardless, fans can enjoy this release like millions before them who witnessed another Marvel masterpiece in theaters.
