Bang! “Spider Man: Across the Spiderverse” Weekend Up 110% from Previous Chapter at $120 Million in Dazzling Debut


If Sony Pictures didn’t have “Spider Man” movies, I don’t know what would happen to them.

This weekend, “Spider Man Across the Spiderverse,” an animated film, took in $120.5 million. That’s a 110% increase over the previous installment in 2018. Wow! The audience just kept coming back and back and back.

Nothing else did anything close. “Spider Man” shut down “The Little Mermaid,” from Disney. All the so-called ‘movies for adults” did poorly. No surprise.

keep refreshing…
