The projections for Spider-Man: No Way Home opening weekend box office is looking good. The film is expected to reach $200 million and if those projected numbers turn out to be accurate, the demand for the third solo outing for Tom Holland as the MCU’s web-slinger would surpass every other film during the pandemic. According to Boxoffice Pro, social media impressions are on par wit Avengers: Endgame and Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
Spider-Man: No Way Home Projected To Break Box Office Records
Boxoffice Pro also projects Spider-Man: No Way Home to be the first theater-only release movie to break $100 million in its opening weekend during the pandemic era. It the Marvel film reaches $200 million in its debut, that would be the first time in while since Avengers: Endgame in May 2019. Most recently, Marvel’s Eternals received good box-office numbers despite mixed critics reviews but not at this level. The Tom Holland film has already recorded the most advanced ticket sales since Endgame. Fans have rushed to online sites to grab their tickets. Unfortunately, there has been some cases where ticket shortages were causing fights to break out.
Journalists that receive a press screening of No Way Home will be in for a surprise as some parts of the movie may be missing. The alleged reason for only a portion of the film being screened is to prevent spoilers from leaking online. The full version of Spider-Man: No Way Home will be shown at its premiere so critic reviews can be made.
This may seem like a complicated attempt to prevent Spider-Man spoilers. There have been recent examples of journalists breaking embargo to reveal movie details. The most recent case was with Harry Style’s cameo in one of the Eternals post-credit scenes. If rumors are true about Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield reprising their roles as Peter Parker, then it makes a lot of sense for Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios to go through all the complicated process to prevent any Spider-Man: No Way Home key details from leaking early.
The new synopsis for No Way Home below:
“With Spider-Man’s identity now revealed, our friendly neighborhood web-slinger is unmasked and no longer able to separate his normal life as Peter Parker from the high stakes of being a superhero. When Peter asks for help from Doctor Strange, the stakes become even more dangerous, forcing him to discover what it truly means to be Spider-Man.”
