Spider-Man: No Way Home passes $1-billion at the international box office…
Your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man has gone international – international box office, that is.
This morning, Deadline’s Nancy Tartaglione posted:
Sony/Marvel’s Spider-Man: No Way Home scaled fresh heights this session as it reached an amazing new milestone by crossing the $1B mark at the international box office. The offshore cume through Sunday is an estimated $1.003B for a global total of $1.74B.
“Overall, Spider-Man: No Way Home is the highest-grossing superhero movie of all time in 19 territories,” wrote Tartaglione. She then named “Argentina, Belgium, Croatia, Egypt, Iraq, Israel, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Lithuania, Mexico, Mongolia, Oman, Saudi Arabia, Serbia, Syria, Turkey, Ukraine, and the UK.”
Spider-Man: No Way Home became the 10th movie to amass $1-billion overseas with the film’s most recent push.
Meanwhile, Forbes’ Scott Mendelson posted, “Box Office: ‘No Way Home’ Is The ‘Force Awakens’ Of ‘Spider-Man’ Movies,” and wrote:
Thanks to a near-total absence of competition, Spider-Man: No Way Home continued to rally and once again top the weekend box office. Sony and Marvel’s superhero sequel earned $11 million (-21%) in its seventh weekend, bringing its domestic cume to $736.5 million. That’s obviously the fourth-biggest domestic cume ever, behind Avatar ($760 million), Avengers: Endgame ($858 million) and Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
“Spider-Man: No Way Home played not unlike how The Force Awakens was greeted not just as a new Star Wars movie but as a direct sequel to Return of the Jedi,” added Mendelson. “It became a multigenerational nostalgic event and a metaphorical redemption for Sony’s previous franchise missteps.”
Question: How far can Spidey(s) go? Only time will tell.
