‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’ On Track For $150M Domestic Opening

Sony and Marvel’s “Spider-Man: No Way Home” is eyeing a huge box office debut and could be the first pandemic-era movie to cross $100 million in a single weekend.  Currently, Sony Pictures is predicting the film to earn $130 million over three days while other box office predictions have the film raking in $150 domestically.  Some estimates are even projecting $175 million domestically with the film slinging in $290M globally.

If the above estimates are true, “No Way Home” will not only be the biggest debut since 2019, but it will also be the best start out of all of Tom Holland’s Spidey films.  For comparison, 2017’s “Homecoming” opened to $117 million and 2019’s “Far From Home” cleared $92 million.

“To reach $100 million or more in a single weekend for the first time during the pandemic, which this movie is likely to far exceed, would be a big win for theater owners and mark another step in the long-term box office recovery process,” says Shawn Robbins, the chief analyst at Box Office Pro.

Ticketing and theater sites crashed when tickets went on sale for “No Way Home.”  Fandango reported that first-day presales for “No Way Home” exceeded those for 2018’s “Avengers: Infinity War” and 2017’s “Star Wars: The Last Jedi.” Both of those movies went on to gross over $200 million during their domestic openings.

For the first time in the cinematic history of Spider-Man, our friendly neighborhood hero is unmasked and no longer able to separate his normal life from the high-stakes of being a Super Hero. When he asks for help from Doctor Strange the stakes become even more dangerous, forcing him to discover what it truly means to be Spider-Man.

The film stars Tom Holland, Zendaya, Jon Favreau, Jacob Batalon, and  Marisa Tomei all reprising their roles from the previous Spidey films, with Benedict Cumberbatch joining the fray as Doctor Strange.   Jamie Foxx will reprise his role as Electro from The Amazing Spider-Man movies, and Alfred Molina will reprise his role as Doctor Octopus from Spider-Man 2 and Willem DaFoe returns as Green Goblin.

The film is directed by Jon Watts, and written by Chris McKenna & Erik Sommers; the film is produced by Kevin and Feige Amy Pascal, and executive producers Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso, JoAnn Perritano, Rachel O’Connor, Avi Arad, and Matt Tolmach.

“Spider-Man: No Way Home” releases in cinemas in the United Kingdom on December 15 and theaters in the United States on December 17, 2021.
