‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’ becomes the biggest movie ever in Mexico


In its fifth weekend, Sony/Marvel’s Spider-Man: No Way Home swung past the $900M mark at the international box office to weave a $926.3M running cume after a $33.4M session in 63 markets. The worldwide total through Sunday is an Electro-fying $1.625B.

Notably during the frame, this Spidey scaled new heights in Latin America, becoming the highest-grossing film of all time in Mexico ($72M cume) and the No. 2 movie ever in Brazil ($50.4M), Central America ($12.6M) and Ecuador ($7.9M).

The Tom Holland-fronted phenom also crossed $100M globally in IMAX with an estimated $101.2M through Monday. This is only the 11th title in the company’s history to the milestone. Overseas markets make up $40.7M of the total.

Still to come are Slovakia and Norway as Peter Parker and friends eye a potential $1B overseas, sans China. Superheroes (and horror, see below) are uniting factors at cinemas and there’s not much new coming up on a global scale until Roland Emmerich’s Moonfall begins offshore rollout on February 3.

In the meantime, Paramount/Spyglass Media’s Scream got off to a strong start at the international box office with $18M from 50 markets. On a like-for-like basis, the re-quel’s results are 23% above Scream 4 and 57% above recent horror release Halloween Kills. Combined with domestic’s (three-day) launch, the global running total is $48.6M through Sunday.

The Matt Bettinelli-Olpin/Tyler Gillett-directed return to Woodsboro landed No. 2 in the majority of its offshore openings, including the UK ($3.4M/622 locations), France ($1.8M/415), Australia ($1.5M/229), Russia ($1.3M/1,500 — biggest debut in the franchise) and Germany ($1.1M/452). The UAE opened at No. 1 with $310K from 66 sites.
