YOWZA “Spider Man: No Way Home” 3rd Highest Thursday Previews Ever with $50 Million, AMC Stock Up 20%


“Spider Man: No Way Home” set a record with the 3rd highest ever Thursday previews at the box office. Total was $50 million.

AMC Theater stock is up 14% on the news. “Spider Man” is on its way to a $150 million weekend, maybe more.

This is despite the pandemic and theater going at a low in recent months. But the audience is piling in to see all the characters from 20 years of these movies return for one big rodeo. Amazing. And the movie is good!
