After years of speculating and intensely analyzing every trailer, Spider-Man: No Way Home is finally out. To kick off this week of celebration, Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures are holding a premiere in Los Angeles on December 15, 2021.
After the social media embargo and reviews were lifted right after the film was shown, there were all sorts of predictions about the Rotten Tomatoes score by which a film was based on whether it was good or bad. Spider-Man: No Way Home currently holds a score of 94 percent with 139 reviews.
“This is the bigger and bolder Spider-Man film, Spider-Man: No Way Home película completa expands the scope and stakes of its film without losing its humor and heart,” the critic wrote in Rotten Tomatoes. ).
When comparing Rotten Tomatoes’ current score with other films, this latest Spider-Man film is just below Miles Morales’s Spider-Man Into the Spider-Verse, which has a rating of 97 percent.
Then followed by Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man 2 with 93 percent, Spider-Man: Homecoming at 92 percent, Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man and Spider-Man: Far From Home with 90 percent.
Then The Amazing Spider-Man at 72 percent, Spider-Man 3 at 63 percent, and finally The Amazing Spider-Man 2 at 52 percent and most surprising because it is the single worst Spider-Man film.
But Tomatometer isn’t everything, because what matters most is that fans can breathe a sigh of relief knowing that this highly anticipated blockbuster has met their expectations with predominantly positive reception. The score may go up or down as more reviews come in and fans start seeing them. But for now, Spider-Man: No Way Home is one of the best-reviewed films of the Spider-Man franchise.
Spider-Man: No Way Home – Box office projections
In November 2021, Boxoffice Pro projected that the film would earn $135–185 million within its opening weekend, and around $375–525 million for its total domestic box office. Additional estimates project No Way Home to open over $100 million domestically, which would be the first film in 2021 to do so. The following month, Boxoffice Pro updated their projections, estimating that the film would earn $190–250 million within its opening weekend, and around $520–690 million for its total domestic box office. Frank Pallotta of CNN Business felt the film’s total gross was expected to “more closely resemble a blockbuster from the pre-pandemic era”.
Tickets went on sale at midnight on November 29, 2021, with several ticket websites such as Fandango and AMC Theatres almost immediately crashing due to the high influx of users attempting to purchase said tickets. Ticket sales on Fandango surpassed those for Black Widow in just two hours, and by the end of the day it became the best first-day advance ticket sale since Avengers: Endgame, while also surpassing the 24-hour ticket sales of Avengers: Infinity War (2018), Star Wars: The Last Jedi (2017), Spider-Man: Far From Home, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker (2019) and Rogue One (2016). No Way Home had the second highest one-day ticket sales on AMC, with CEO Adam Aron attributing this to Spider-Man-themed NFTs.
The film also set records in Mexico with $7 million in the first-day ticket sale, which was 40% above Endgame. In the United Kingdom, the film outsold No Time to Die three times in the same twelve-day span before their release, while Brazil’s ticket sale was 5% above Endgame at the same point. The film also passed the presale records of The Rise of Skywalker in Poland and No Time to Die in Portugal. Other markets with the best presale records include Spain, Brazil, and Central America. The film grossed $5.28 million on it’s opening day in Korea, thereby beating Spider-Man: Far From Home’s opening day in Korea by over 11% and the biggest day one figure for any film during the pandemic. In India, the film’s opening box office was over 2x of Sooryavanshi, an Indian film.
