“Spider-Man: No Way Home” hits big at the box office


The hype is Real! 

Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios “Spider-Man: No Way Home” opened to an astounding $260.0 million dollars over the weekend of Dec. 17, 2022. 

Internationally the film has made a whopping $1.04 billion and worldwide, Spidey has webbed up $1.8 billion in ticket sales. This achievement is nothing short of amazing as we are still in the middle of a pandemic and as Omicron continues to surge throughout the world. “No Way Home” is prove that the theater experience is not dead.  

According to CNN Business, “Spider-Man: No Way Home” earned $121 million on its first day, the second-highest opening day in box officer history behind only Marvel’s “Avengers: Endgame” which earned $260.1 million.  

“Spider-Man: No Way Home” currently sits at a 93 percent with critics and a very rare 98 percent audience score.  

“Man, seeing people out like this at the movies is great. It has been a long time. I have a lot more messes to clean up, but this is nice to see, and the movie was amazing. Very happy Spidey fan. I work here, I’ve seen it for free 3 times already” said James Thomas, 26, a Crew Leader at AMC Neshaminy 24. 

Movie theaters have been struggling since the pandemic took hold of both the U.S and international box office. Only a handful of films have successfully made a dent at the box office this fall such as “No Time to Die”, “Venom: Let There Be Carnage”, “Shang-Chi and the Legend of The Ten Rings”, “Halloween Kills”.  

“Spider-Man: No Way Home” is the only film to gross over a billion dollars this holiday season. Hollywood Reporter says, “Spider-Man No Way Home” has secured its new home as number four on the all-time box office. 

With many more big films slated for releasing in 2022 like Warner Bros. Pictures’ “The Batman” starring Robert Pattinson as The Dark Knight, the box office looks alive and well.  

“Spider-Man: No Way Home” was directed by Jon Watts and written by Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers. The film stars Tom Holland, Zendaya, Benedict Cumberbatch, Jacob Batalon, Jon Favreau, Jamie Foxx, Willem Dafoe, Alfred Molina, Benedict Wong, Tony Revolori, and Marisa Tomei. 

“Spider-Man: No Way Home” is now currently playing in theaters everywhere.
