SPIDER-MAN: NO WAY HOME Breaking Records Overseas In Presales; Beats NO TIME TO DIE In The UK In 24 Hours
Spider-Man: No Way Home has already topped Avengers: Endgame in terms of ticket presales in North America, but the movie is now breaking records overseas, and has even beaten No Time to Die in the UK...
We know Spider-Man: No Way Home has already broken presale records in the U.S. in terms of ticket sales, but word is now in from overseas courtesy of Deadline. According to the trade, the threequel set all-time records in a number of international markets, with plenty of ticketing websites crashing due to the sheer amount of demand (some fans were even told to stand in line at their local theater to secure tickets if they were unable to do so online).
The movie is easily beating Avengers: Endgame in most parts of the world, but its most impressive feat could be in Tom Holland's home country.
In The UK, Spider-Man: No Way Home has outsold Daniel Craig's latest James Bond movie, No Time to Die, by as much as three times in the space of 24 hours. That's one heck of an achievement, especially in the midst of a new strain of COVID-19 that's causing concerns across the globe.
It's clear that the next Spider-Man movie will break box office records, and it could potentially become the first blockbuster of the "pandemic era" to hit $1 billion worldwide. If things were a little more normal, then we could see the movie surpassing $2 billion given the sheer amount of excitement, and Sony is likely keeping everything crossed that No Way Home secures a China release soon.
Regardless, the blockbuster starts rolling out beginning December 15, so it's going to become harder for fans to avoid spoilers (especially after the world premiere on December 13 if the Eternals/Harry Styles situation is any indication). As always, you'll want to check back here for updates.
Spider-Man: No Way Home arrives in U.S. on December 17 and in the UK on December 15.
