Spider-Man: No Way Home has earned a pretty penny over its opening weekend, with a haul of $260 million in the US over the weekend alone -- destroying pandemic-ridden box office numbers.
The new movie has now secured itself the honor of the second-best opening of all time, only behind fellow MCU flick Avengers: Endgame. Spider-Man: No Way Home took an estimated $260 million in the US, and another $340 million from over 60 overseas markets for a global box office opening weekend haul of over $600 million.
Spider-Man: No Way Home has absolutely destroyed the most recent MCU movie that hit theaters -- Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Tend Rings -- which has secured $224 million since it hit theaters... back in September, some 3 months ago now. Spider-Man: No Way Home smashed that in a single weekend. Way to go, Spidey.
