Sony/Marvel’s ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home” has come in at 43.6 million dollars in last week’s launch in 15 markets. The film directed by Jon Watts has also set multiple records, and is looking to blow past industry projects last weekend.
The film set a pandemic-era opening day record in Korea last Wednesday and scored the best Wednesday launch ever in the UK with 7.63 million pounds or 10.1 million dollars. That debut topped 6.6 million dollars on the first day of ‘No Time to Die’ which bowed on September 30.
‘No Way Home’ also became Sony’s biggest opening day of all time in the UK, and it grabbed 9 million dollars in Mexico for the biggest-ever opening day in the market. This comes in above ‘Avengers: Endgame’ when excluding that film’s previews.
In France, it had a Wednesday start of 4.34 million dollars which was 2 percent over Avengers: Infinity War. Russia logged the No. 3 all-time opening day with 3.5 million dollars, and Italy gave Sony its best opening day with 3.4 million dollars.
There is also encouraging news out of Asia with Taiwan and Korea.
