Spider-Man made even more money than originally projected.
"Spider-Man: No Way Home," the latest movie in the Marvel series, notched a record-breaking opening weekend at the domestic box office by bringing in $260 million, Sony said Monday.
That's up from Sunday's projections of $253 million, and it's remarkable in a pandemic. "No Way Home" has swung past "Avengers: Infinity War" — which opened to $257 million in 2018, according to Comscore (SCOR) — to become the second highest opening weekend in box office history.
Only 2019's "Avengers: Endgame," one of the biggest blockbusters of all time, opened to larger numbers.
