Two weeks ago, Shawn Robbins of Box Office Pro projected that Spider-Man: No Way Home would earn $135M-$185M at the domestic box office during opening weekend (Dec. 17-19). Well, just days after advance tickets went on sale and crashed multiple ticketing websites, he has upped his projection.
Robbins is now projecting that the film will earn somewhere between $190M-$250M in North America during its opening weekend. He also says it will end its stateside theater run with a massive total of around $520M-$690M.
If his projections hold up, then the film will not only be the first COVID-19 era movie to earn over $100M during its opening weekend, but also the the first to earn over $200M. The last time a film broke the $200M+ barrier was of course Avengers: Endgame in April 2019.
Last month, it was revealed that Spider-Man: No Way Home would likely be the first MCU Phase Four film to receive a release in China. The addition of the massive market all but guaranteed that it would become the first film in the pandemic ear to gross over $1B worldwide.
Spider-Man: No Way Home hits theaters on December 17.
