‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’ is now second-biggest domestic box office debut in history
Spider-Man: No Way Home had an even bigger box office debut than initially reported.
According to Variety, the superhero flick took in $260 million in North America over the weekend, more than Sunday’s initial estimates of $253 million. That means it’s now enjoyed the second-highest opening ever at the domestic box office, surpassing Avengers: Infinity War, which had a $257 million box office take when it opened in April, 2018.
Avengers: Endgame is the only film that has grossed more in its debut weekend. In pre-COVID times, it raked in $357 million when it bowed in April, 2019.
Spider-Man: No Way Home is also the first pandemic-era film to gross more than $100 million in its debut.
Spider-Man: No Way Home is a co-production of Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios, the latter of which is owned by ABC News’ parent company, Disney.
