Spider-Man: No Way Home is swinging into a historic opening weekend.
The numbers are beginning to come in, and as it stands, No Way Home is eyeing an opening weekend between $240-$250 million domestically. This would make it the first film to surpass $100 million in its opening weekend since pre-pandemic. It’s a huge win for both Sony and Marvel Studios, as the film scored an insane $121.5 million on Friday alone. Should current estimates hold, Spider-Man: No Way Home will secure a record within the top four biggest openings of all time at the domestic box office.
Currently, the biggest domestic openings of all time belong to: Avengers: Endgame ($357 million) and followed by Avengers: Infinity War ($257.6 million), Star Wars: The Force Awakens ($248 million), Star Wars: The Last Jedi ($220 million) and Jurassic World ($208.8 million). With the current estimates, No Way Home could land in third or fourth place when the final numbers are revealed on Monday.
Before No Way Home, the biggest opening for a film stateside was $90 million — for an opening weekend — courtesy of Sony’s Venom: Let There be Carnage. While the pandemic is far from over, these numbers are huge for a box office that has been struggling since the pandemic first started. Accounting for some of its massive box office haul is the $50 million No Way Home earned from Thursday previews. That’s enough to give it the third biggest preview night behind Avengers: Endgame ($60 million) and Star Wars: The Force Awakens ($57 million).
