No Way Home beat Avengers: Infinity War at the box office

Spider-Man: No Way Home has now clinched the second-largest opening weekend of all time, according to an updated box office report. Spider-Man: No Way Home, directed by Jon Watts, is the third solo MCU film starring Tom Holland as Peter Parker.

It takes off just where 2019’s Spider-Man: Far From Home left off, with Peter revealing himself to the rest of the world as Spider-Man.

Peter takes the help of Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) for a spell that will allow him to regain his anonymity. When things go horribly wrong, Peter is forced to deal with several villains from other realities who all have one thing in common: Peter Parker.

No Way Home beat Avengers: Infinity War

Spider-Man: No Way Home was easily the most talked-about film of the year before its release. Fans enjoyed the multiverse theory, which allowed actors from earlier series like Alfred Molina and Willem Dafoe to join the MCU, and Holland’s Peter is still one of the most popular. Still, few could have anticipated how big No Way Home would become in its opening weekend. With $253 million on Sunday, Spider-Man: No Way Home was the third-highest opening of all time, but that has changed with the final figure.

According to a new Sony update, Spider-Man: No Way Home grossed $260 million in its first weekend in 4,336 theatres throughout the United States. This makes it the second-highest opening weekend in cinematic history, behind only Avengers: Infinity War’s $257 million.

Avengers: Endgame is the only film that comes before it. No Way Home grossed $121.925 million on Friday, $73.9 million on Saturday, and $64.175 on Sunday when broken by day. This is the biggest opening weekend for any Spider-Man film, Sony as a whole, and the entire month of December.

When given the current situation of the coronavirus pandemic, Spider-Man: No Way Home’s performance is very impressive. The domestic box office has taken shaky steps toward normalcy in recent months, but overall revenue for the year is still down sharply from the previous year. No film had opened to more than $100 million since Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker until No Way Home. Not only did Spider-Man: No Way Home exceed those expectations, but it also outperformed Infinity War, a film that debuted in relatively typical circumstances in 2018 and featured the largest MCU cast ever at the time.
