Spider-Man: No Way Home Box Office Rockets With $587.2 Million Opening Weekend

Spider-Man: No Way Home has delivered one of the best opening weekends of all time, having grossed an estimated $587.2 million (about Rs. 4,468 crore) since its release last week at the worldwide box office. It’s the third largest launch for any Hollywood movie — behind only Avengers: Endgame and Avengers: Infinity War — and the biggest yet for Sony Pictures for all time. The new Spider-Man movie achieved this feat without the help of China, traditionally Hollywood’s second biggest market. In India, Spider-Man: No Way Home had the second largest opening weekend of all time for a Hollywood movie, and the biggest opening weekend in IMAX of all time.

That $587.2 million figure for Spider-Man: No Way Home is split $253 million (about Rs. 1,925 crore) from 4,336 cinemas in the US and Canada since Friday debut, and the remaining $334.2 million (about Rs. 2,543 crore) from theatres in 60 territories around the world across five days. Among the latter, the UK led with $41.4 million (about Rs. 315 crore), followed by the likes of Mexico at $32.4 million (about Rs. 246 crore) as the biggest opening ever, South Korea at $23.7 million (about Rs. 180 crore) despite a curfew from Saturday, Australia at $18.7 million (about Rs. 142 crore) for the third biggest opening ever, and India at $18.2 million (about Rs. 138 crore) which is staggering.
