Spider-Man: No Way Home has stormed Indian theatres with reception so good that it is surpassing Akshay Kumar’s Sooryavanshi right from Day 1. Now, it has achieved a new feat.
On Day 1, Spider-Man: No Way Home did a business of Rs 32.67 crore, thus beating Sooryavanshi’s opening of Rs 26.29 crore. On Day 2, it scored Rs 20.37 crore and jumped again on Day 3 as it minted Rs 25 crore. The grand total now stands at Rs 78.04 crore.
With these figures, Spider-Man: No Way Home has already beaten Sooryavanshi’s three-day total of Rs 77.08 crore. Now, Tom Holland’s film is all set to beat Akshay Kumar’s cop drama yet again, and this time it’s about the number of days taken to reach the 100-crore club.
With Rs 78.04 crore already in, it seems Spider-Man: No Way Home will enter into the 100-crore club on Sunday, thus making it a 4-day journey to reach the club. One expects the franchise film to hit the Rs 30 crore mark today. Sooryavanshi took 5 days to achieve the same.
As Spider-Man: No Way Home is playing in theatres with another big competitor, Pushpa, the feat would be amazing.
The film has domestically raked in a staggering opening of $ 121.50 million in the United States. It’s next to Avengers: Endgame which had earned $ 157.46 million. On the global front, the film has done a business of $ 165.10 million. It is projected to earn over $ 240 million in the US over its three-day weekend.
Coming back to India, Spider-Man: No Way Home is the widest Hollywood release ever, surpassing the screen count of Avengers: Endgame. It has been released on 3,264 screens in five Indian languages.
About Spider-Man: No Way Home
Spider-Man: No Way Home is a 2021 Hollywood superhero film based on the Marvel Comics character Spider-Man co-produced by Columbia Pictures and Marvel Studios and distributed by Sony Pictures Releasing. It is the sequel to Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017) and Spider-Man: Far From Home (2019), and is the 27th film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The film is directed by Jon Watts, written by Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers, and stars Tom Holland as Peter Parker/Spider-Man alongside Zendaya, Benedict Cumberbatch, Jacob Batalon, Jon Favreau, Jamie Foxx, Willem Dafoe, Alfred Molina, Benedict Wong, Tony Revolori, Marisa Tomei, Andrew Garfield, and Tobey Maguire. In the film, Parker asks Dr Stephen Strange (Cumberbatch) to make his identity as Spider-Man a secret again with magic following its public revelation in Spider-Man: Far From Home, but this breaks open the multiverse, allowing five supervillains from alternate realities who have fought their own versions of Parker to enter his universe.
A third MCU Spider-Man film was planned during the production of Homecoming in 2017. By August 2019, negotiations between Sony and Marvel Studios to alter their deal — in which they produce the Spider-Man films together — ended with Marvel Studios leaving the project. However, a negative fan reaction led to a new deal between the two companies a month later. Watts, McKenna, Sommers, and Holland were set to return at that time.
The filming began in October 2020 in New York City, before moving to Atlanta later that month and wrapping at the end of March 2021. No Way Home explores the concept of the multiverse and ties the MCU to past franchise film series, with numerous actors — including previous Spider-Man role players Toby Maguire and Andrew Garfield — reprising their roles from older Spider-Man films directed by Sam Raimi and Marc Webb. The return of Maguire and Garfield was the subject of speculation, and Sony, Marvel and the cast attempted to conceal their involvement, despite numerous leaks.
Spider-Man: No Way Home premiered at the Fox Village Theatre in Los Angeles on 13 December, and was theatrically released in the United States on 17 December, as part of Phase Four of the MCU. The film received acclaim from critics, with praise for the performances and chemistry of the cast, screenplay, emotional weight, direction, action sequences, cinematography, and musical score. It has grossed over $ 165 million worldwide. Disney and Sony have begun discussions on future Spider-Man collaborations.
