Sony / Marvel’s Spider-Man: No Road Home charted the second-best opening day in national box office history at $ 121.5 Million (including $ 50 million previews) after Avengers Endgame ($ 157.4M) and for ahead of Star Wars: The Force Awakens ($ 119.1 million). That is also the highest opening day in the history of the month of December. This now puts Tom Holland-Zendaya-Benedict Cumberbatch directed by Jon Watts and film the villain Spidey stars in an estimated $ 242 million – $ 247.5M +over three days, which would make it the fourth-highest opening of all time between the US and Canada, behind Avengers Endgame ($ 357.1 Million), Avengers: Infinity War ($ 257.7 million), and Star Wars: the awakening of the force ($ 247.96 million).
The expectation is that on Saturday it will ease by 40% from the Friday + preview figure, however in most cases when we have such a big box office beast it only gets bigger. Some watch Spider-Man: No Road Home beating Force Awakens’ weekend 3 days. Spider-Man: No Way Homealso gets a big hug from moviegoers with an A + CinemaScore; Top grade for a live-action Spider-Man, and second for the franchise that features the Oscar-winning animated film, 2018 Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.
A great indication that the power of the big screen will not be defeated by a pandemic: Ticket sales for all films this weekend are expected to reach an estimated $ 268.8 million, up 8% from two years ago. Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, the latest blockbuster, opened before Covid. However, as we mentioned earlier, the success of Spider-Man: No Way Home is not a case of tide turning all ships. No Way Home is controlling 91% of ticket sales for the entire weekend, this compared to Rise of Skywalkerwhich had an opening of $ 177.3M that represented 72% of the national BO between December 20 and 22, 2019.
Imax and PLF displays generate 32% of Sin camino a casa ticket sales to date. On Friday, we heard, AMC Burbank in CA and AMC Empire in New York raised over 300K. There were eight theaters making over $ 200K each and 180 making over $ 100K each in one day, which is huge.
The updated Comscore / Screen Engine PostTrak outputs still show 5 stars from the general audience with a 96% positive, a final recommendation of 91% for children under 12 who give the film a 98% rating. The 18-34 year-old demo is largely responsible for the success of this blockbuster, with 70% men under 25 with 38% (97% grade), men over 25 with 25% (grade of 96%), women under 25 with 22% (Grade of 95%) and women older than 25 to 15% (now a grade of 92%). The updated displays of diversity are 32% Caucasian, 30% Latino and Hispanic, 17% Black, and 14% Asian.

No Road Home runs for 2 hours and 28 minutes, proving that long superhero movies during the pandemic are still appealing to their core audiences. You can’t do the same for older biased movies, like this weekend’s other broad release , Guillermo del Toro’s Searchlight Nightmare Alley which is 2 1/2 hours long. The updated noir feature film adaptation of William Lindsay Gresham’s novel and the 1947 film reissue, despite its 80% fresh rating certified by Rotten Tomatoes critics, is set to make $ 3.25 million, perhaps $ 4 millionsthis weekend at 2,145. The movie will have to wait until after Christmas in case an adult ventures into this 8-time Critics Choice nominated role. CinemaScore is a B, which is higher than the B- of Del Toro’s previous art genre release (the Oscar-winning film The Shape of Water was Platform), Crimson Peak. In October 2015 before the pandemic, Crimson Peak opened at $ 13.1 million and ended its US run at $ 31 million. Water’s form of four Oscars, including Best Picture and Director, came to $ 63.8 million. The final marks of both photos are possibly impossible for Nightmare Alleyto emulate, plus it’s a much darker movie than the romantic Shape of Water.
FRIDAY NOON UPDATE: By industry estimates at noon, not Sony, Spider-Man: No Way Home is easily heading toward an opening that’s north of $ 200 million. Some have the Jon Watts-directed MCU title between $ 238 million and $ 250 million. They told me if the wheels fall off Spider-Manand plummets 50% on Saturday (from Friday), it should still land comfortably north of $ 200 million. Triple note, midday estimates on Friday are always the most aggressive. My understanding is that Sony already has $ 97 million in the bank for today, which should put the Tom Holland-Zendaya image between $ 115 million and $ 120 million (including $ 50 million previews). If a meteor were to hit Earth this weekend and for some unexpected reason Spidey is in the high $ 100 million range, there’s no reason we couldn’t call that a phenomenal success, especially now that we’re enduring a pandemic. in progress. There is too much enthusiastic word of mouth here.
As far as Covid is concerned, we are hearing that theater capacity restrictions are in effect at 50% in Nova Scotia, Ontario, Quebec and New Brunswick in Canada. That’s not expected to ruin what we’re seeing here in Spider-Man.
As for other movies on the market, I heard that this weekend is not one where the tide rises to all ships; Spider-Man: With no way home he ‘s sucking up all the oxygen. Still, behold the living financial power of a fire-breathing theatrical window. Why the heck doesn’t anyone want to practice the day and date, again? Someone, remember me.
20th Century Studios / Amblin / Disney’s West Side Story is seeing a 55-60% decline for the 3-day weekend by $ 4- $ 5 million on the second weekend. The Steven Spielberg musical ended its first week with $ 14.5 million.
Meanwhile, after having its shares in the low $ 20 range, AMC’s number one exhibitor at the time of this report sees it rise to $ 29.04, +4.59.

Sources tell me a $ 100 million opening day for the Jon Watts-led multiverse title is likely, and even if it falls short, there’s still nothing to cry about because Spider-Man: No Road Home is the one. biggest movie we’ve seen in a long time. Avengers Endgame Thursday accounted for 38% of its first opening day of $ 157.46 million, Force Awakens’ preview night accounted for 48% of its $ 119.1 million on Friday, while Last Jedi Los $ 45 million on Thursday represented 43% of its $ 104.7 million on Friday.
