‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’ collects $587.2 million worldwide in its opening weekend

Spiderman: No Way Home surpassed all the box office records by making a huge box-office collection of $253 million from 4,336 theatres in North America. The Marvel latest release becomes the single film that managed to gross $100 million in a single weekend during COVID-era. Another Sony comic book sequel, Venom: Let There Be Carnage generated $90 million in its opening weekend.

Spiderman: No Way Home grossed $121 million in its first-day premiere, as SpiderMan fans were very particular to watch out the movie in the big screens and to avoid the spoilers online. After only three days in cinemas, it’s already the highest-grossing film of this year.

According to Deadline, the movie has earned $334.2 million from 60 international markets for a global tally of $587.2 million. It ranks as the third-biggest worldwide opening weekend ever behind Avengers: Endgame ($1.2 billion) and Avengers: Infinity War ($640 million).
