Spider-Man: Across beats ‘Guardians’ at Box Office

‘Spider-Man: Across The Spider-Verse’ has made a huge noise at the opening of summer YTD with $120M+ beating Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3‘s $118.4M) at the Box Office last week.

Global start here for Spider-Verse is $208.6M, well above the $150M we forecast, with China delivering $17.3M.

Among all animated pic domestic openings, Spider-Verse is sixth behind Incredibles 2 ($182.6M), Super Mario Bros ($146.3M), Finding Dory ($135M), Frozen 2 ($130.2M) and Toy Story 4 ($120.9M). The Marvel sequel reps the best start ever for Sony Animation.

But Across the Spider-Verse‘s domestic opening here is 241 per cent ahead of the first movie, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse‘s $35.3M.

After Super Mario Bros delivered a huge Easter, look out for next year’s holiday, because that’s when part three of this Sony Animation franchise, Beyond The Spider-Verse, hits on March 29.

Producers Phil Lord and Chris Miller, as well as filmmakers Joaquim Dos Santos, Kemp Powers, and Justin K. Thompson, attempted a whole new animation style that would one-up the previous installment, which earned an Oscar for Best Animated Film.
