According to ‘Spider-Man: No Back Home’, it recorded the second-best opening day in U.S. box office history at $ 121.5 million (including a $ 50 million preview).
The film was right behind ‘Avengers: Ultimatum ($ 157.4 million) and ahead of’ Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ ($ 119.1 million). It also conquered the biggest opening day of all time for the month of December.
Additionally, Box Office Pro reported that “Spider-Man: No Back Home” could fetch anywhere from $ 242 million to $ 247.5 million, making it the fourth-biggest debut in U.S. history.
At the end of the course on the American big screen, the title which marks the end of the current Webhead trilogy could accumulate between 375 and 525 million dollars.
For this reason, the portal estimates that the sequel could easily reach $ 1 billion worldwide.
Although the previous film made $ 1.132 billion, you have to take into account that not all cinemas in the world are open and many people are still afraid to go inside because of the Coronavirus.
Even so, these numbers represent the enormous strength of the film, given that the biggest hits of the year were also in this projection range.
At the domestic box office, “Fast and Furious 9” grossed $ 173 million, for a total of $ 721 million worldwide.
‘007: No Time to Die’ closed with $ 151.9 million in the US, ending with $ 710 million at the global box office.
‘Venom: Time of Carnage’ took home $ 203.7 million in the US, but ended up running out of steam worldwide, closing at $ 442.5 million.
“Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings” also captured the lion’s share of US revenue, with $ 224.4 million. Globally, it was $ 431.2 million.
Recalling that the last film to exceed the billion dollars in the world was “Star Wars: The Skywalker Rise”, released in December 2019.
So, do you think “Spider-Man: No Return Home” can beat the mark?
In Brazil, the film drew more than 1.7 million viewers and raised BRL 34 million in preview screenings (15) and on its first day Thursday (16).
It is the biggest opening day in the history of national cinema. The previous record belonged to “Avengers: Ultimatum,” which took 1.5 million people on its first day on a Thursday and managed to raise R $ 24 million.
