Everyone expected that ‘Spider-Man: Crossing the Multiverse’ would be a success and no one doubted that in its first weekend it would improve the data that ‘Spider-Man: A New Universe’ had four years ago, but it is that its success has exceeded all expectations. The most optimistic expected it to make about 110 million dollars at the North American box office, but it has gone to the 120.5 million.
In this way, ‘Spider-Man: Crossing the Multiverse’ easily dethrones ‘The Little Mermaid’, but the Disney remake holds a 57% drop quite well. That is equivalent to adding an additional 40.6 million in the United States for a total of 186.2 million, still ahead of ‘Aladdin’ at this point. The problem is that the movie starring halle bailey it is performing much worse in the rest of the world, to the point that there are serious doubts that it can recover the large investment made.
In addition, those 120.5 million dollars allows it to surpass the premiere that ‘Guardians of the Galaxy 3’ had a few weeks ago, since Marvel’s farewell to James Gunn it started with 118.4 million. That makes ‘Spider-Man: Crossing the Multiverse’ the best start for a superhero movie in 2023 and also the third best debut for a wall-climbing adventure, only behind ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’ (260.13 million) and ‘Spider-Man 3’ (151.1 million).
It is also worth noting that ‘Spider-Man: Crossing the Multiverse’ has literally ridiculed the landing in theaters of ‘A new universe’, since the first installment of this animated saga barely made 35.36 million during the weekend of its arrival in theaters. In fact, its final box office in the United States was 190.24 million, an amount that the title in question will already exceed next weekend.
To this we must add that his budget was “only” 100 million, so adding the international box office it is possible that in a matter of days they will start to be all benefits for Sony. It almost pays the studio more to give priority to this franchise than to focus its efforts on ‘Spider-Man 4’ with Tom Hollandthe truth…
