Spider-Man: No Way Home would always make a lot of money. Aside from the pandemic, people have been craving this movie for two years now, both because they love Tom Holland and because it who exploit nostalgia by bringing back old cinematic villains – some beloved, some not so much, and Sandman too – for another round of CG superhero spectacle. Well, that and people want to know if the movie does the thing.

Even with all that though, it’s pretty wild to see how much this movie has made to come out in such a short amount of time. Per DeadlineNo Way Home has gone on to become both the third biggest global opener of all time and Sony’s biggest movie ever with $587.2 million at the time of writing. It helps that the film got a head start by releasing a few days early in the UK and Ireland, and that word of mouth (which, of course, contained spoilers) made people want to see it even more. For 2021, it will be the sixth best opening of the year and the sixth film ever to cross the $500 million mark at launch. The film currently doesn’t have a release date in China, like Shang-Chi and Eternals before it.

Domestically, it currently stands at $253 million, becoming both the highest-grossing film of the year and the third-best domestic opener of the month. That honor was previously held by Star Wars: The Force Awakens for $247.9 million, and No Way Home is just a few million away from fellow Marvel film Avengers: Infinity War ($257.7 million) second-place finish. ).

If your name wasn’t Peter Parker, people just weren’t really interested in seeing your movie. It’s especially bad for Guillermo del Toro’s Nightmare Alley, which opened the same day and debuted in fifth place domestically with $3 million. So it’s safe to say that even with Matrix in a few days, No Way Home will have some long, potentially billions of dollars.
