It’s looking more and more likely that Spider-Man: No Way Home may finally break the pandemic curse, as it is currently leading the presales worldwide, even going as far as setting brand new benchmarks even with news of the Omnicom variant spreading worldwide. The film already shattered them in the United States, as it was only trailing behind Avengers: Endgame‘s pre-sales from 2019, and is doing something similar in many international key markets. In some, it is even passing the record set by Endgame.
Deadline reports that the film is currently managed to make $7M in Mexico, which is 40% higher than that of the last Avengers entry. It has managed to do the same in Brazil, Central America, Spain, and noticeably the UK. The latter was currently outselling No Time to Die by three times, where the final Daniel Craig-led James Bond film did incredibly well. Australia and Turkey were on par with Endgame‘s release.
The impressive release for the film is also that it’ll be available in 90% of markets in its initial release. Most noticeably, China will get a later release, and it is rumored to be Marvel Studios’ first release in the country since the pandemic started. It’s been quite an impressive breakthrough not only for Sony’s latest entry in the MCU Spider-Man films but also a showcase of the nostalgia and rumors surrounding the project. We’ll be keeping an eye on how the release performed.
