With great power comes great responsibility, and releasing Spider-Man to eager audiences near the holidays is certainly an act of power. But as the omicron variant of COVID runs across the country, is it responsible? Spider-Man: There’s no way home not just “well done by pandemic standards” this weekend. It disappears in such a dramatic way that any Marvel or DC superhero would cheer, though perhaps not any immunologist.
The movie is the third part of Tom Holland Image of Peter Parker (but without spoiling too much, eighth in the multiverse is suddenly relevant!) Limit line reported that its opening weekend domestic total was $254 million, the COVID era winner by a substantial margin and the all-time bronze medal winner, surpassing Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Second place still belongs to Avengers: Infinity War, which grossed only $4.7 million. Avengers: Endgame, title owner, blows these numbers away, but that movie includes all superheroes. (Spidey is just a guy! Light excerpt: Or is it him???)
Internationally, it was an even bigger win, grossing $587 million in total. Notably, the film hasn’t, and likely won’t, be released in China. However, the character is extremely popular in other overseas markets, especially India.
There is no way home boasts a score of 72 out of Metacritic, 94 percent over Rotten Tomatoes, and is currently one of only four films to score a rare A+ in the audience poll Cinema. (The other crowd pleasers are two Avengers movie, Infinity War and Endgame, and Black Panther.) Also, this weekend the social network and YouTube were hit by a series of audience reaction videos, which you should definitely watch if you need a dose of dopamine, have seen a movie, or don’t care about spoilers.
Unfortunately, Spidey’s high tide didn’t lift all the boats at the movie theater. Guillermo del Toro‘S Nightmare Alley outright raised, bringing in only $3 million. (It’s a pity; it’s a good movie.) Also, West story, which is spectacular, continues to sink like a rock, with a domestic total of just $17.9 million after two weeks, according to Diversity. Cartoon Encanto in second place, with $81.5 million in revenue in three weeks. But such earnings will likely do nothing to quell fears that today’s successful theatrical releases can only be achieved through quadrant franchises, children’s photos, and business. cheap weird.
Unless a real hero comes in 2022 to rescue us all.
