Execs at Marvel and Sony and Pascal Productions have that “tingling” this morning.
“Spider Man:No Way Home” smashed Friday box office records after a $50 million Thursday preview night.
The total now is $121 million. Sony/Columbia Pictures have basically saved the movie theaters. That opening is equal to what several “blockbusters” made this year in their full runs. And Spidey is just getting started!
The webslinger, now a multiple, and two decades worth of villains also took in $114 million overseas over two days.
Tom Holland, Benedict Cumberbatch, Zendaya, Marisa Tomei, Alfred Molina, Willem Dafoe, Thomas Haden Church and a couple of other guys we’re not supposed to mention should be very thrilled, along with director Jon Watts.
The sky’s the limit this weekend as the money comes pouring in. Saturday and Sunday numbers will be equally high.
And what future is there for “Spider Man”? Despite the massive case of amnesia at the end of this film, expect three more Holland-centric Spidey movies in the future. Some of the above obviously won’t be in them, but most will. And even if takes seven years, Holland will still look 25!
