SPIDER-MAN: ACROSS THE SPIDER-VERSE - Official Trailer #2 (HD)

When Paramount lost Marvel to Disney, there was no longer an even number of franchises at each of the big companies. But Sony's reported $7M purchase of Marvel's Spider-Man franchise back in 1998 has continued to pay off in a big way.
This weekend, Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse had an amazing $120.5M opening. Tracking didn't see it coming, but advance ticket sales did, making it the best start for a summer tentpole YTD (beating Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3's $118.4M) and the third-best opening for a Spider-Man The global start for Spider-Verse is $208.6M, which is a lot more than the $150M we thought it would be. China brings in $17.3M.
Spider-Verse has the sixth-best opening weekend for an animated movie in the United States, after Incredibles 2 ($182.6 million), Super Mario Bros. ($146.3 million), Finding Dory ($135 million), Frozen 2 ($130.2 million), and Toy Story 4 ($120.9 million). Sony Animation is off to its best start ever with the second Marvel movie.
At first, it was thought that Across the Spider-Verse would make around $80 million in its first weekend, but it ended up making more than $120 million. This would not only be a big jump from the first weekend of Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, but it would also put it on par with some of the most recent live-action Marvel movies. Across the Spider-Verse made more money on its first day than Into the Spider-Verse did on its first weekend.
Across the Spider-Verse was more popular with adults than with kids. In North America, 67 percent of people who bought tickets were between the ages of 18 and 34. Most of the people who saw the movie were men (62%), which is true of almost all superhero movies. After Universal's The Super Movie Bros. Movie, the movie had the most people in the theaters of any 2023 release.
"Across the Spider-Verse," which was rated PG and cost $100 million to make, was directed by Phil Lord, Chris Miller, Joaquim Dos Santos, Kemp Powers, and Justin K. Thompson. They tried a whole new animation style to top the last movie, which won an Oscar for Best Animated Film. It's hard to put into words, but it's not rotoscoping. But it has something to do with the lighting of the characters and redrawing over pictures, again to make it look like the first Spider-Man comics.
In the story, Miles and Gwen Stacy (also known as "Spider-Woman") try to save their fellow Spider People from a bad guy called "the Spot." Shameik Moore and Hailee Steinfeld are back to play Miles and Gwen. Brian Tyree Henry, Issa Rae, Jason Schwartzman, Daniel Kaluuya, and Oscar Isaac are also in the voice cast. Audiences gave the movie an "A" on CinemaScore, and critics gave it an average score of 95% on Rotten Tomatoes. Since Disney's "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3," a superhero movie hasn't gotten that kind of praise in a while.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, Disney's live-action version of The Little Mermaid felSpider-People the United States. It made an extra $40.6 million in its second weekend in theaters. The Disney movie has been out for two weeks and has made a sum of $186,2 million. The Boogeyman, a new horror movie based on a Stephen King story, came in third and made $12.3 million in its first weekend in the United States.

Conclusion

Sony Pictures Entertainment said Sunday that 'Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse' box office opened with $120.5 million in American sales, making it the second-biggest opening of 2023. This made it the top movie at the box office this weekend.
'Across the Spider-Verse' also did well abroad, opening in 57 countries with $88.1 million for a total of $208.6 million worldwide. It is the third-biggest start for an animated movie ever and Sony Animation's best, not taking inflation into account. It's also the second-largest opening so far in 2023.
