While people were expecting Spider-Man: No Way Home to do well when it launched, better than the other Marvel Studios films this year, few saw it really doing the kind of business that it’s doing. With a really strong week after a huge $253 million opening weekend, this weekend saw the film do another $81.5 million. Christmas Weekend always sees some business and if you launch a big tentpole just before it you definitely will move a lot of people into seats, even if there’s a large number of folks that won’t spend time out during your regular holiday.
The film now sits at $467 million domestic with some really big weekday takes that have really caught attention. The film has also now passed the $1 billion mark internationally, and according to Deadline is one of the only modern movies to do so without being shown in China where you can rack up a lot of overseas numbers. The film is now the third-fastest film to cross the $1 billion mark – just twelve days – and is behind the two most recent Avengers films which did it in 11 days for Infinity War and five days for Endgame.
Once past that, a few other openers over the last few days include Sing 2, which added $23.7 million over the three-day weekend for a $39 million total so far, and The Matrix Resurrections which is competing against itself on HBO Max. Here, it made $12 million over the weekend and $22.5 million since opening Wednesday. We also have The King’s Man, which did $6.3 million this weekend and $10 million overall since Wednesday.
