Given the Sunday night estimates we’re hearing for Spider-Man: No Way Home, it looks as though the Sony/Marvel movie is on the verge of overtaking Disney/Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War as the second best domestic box office opening of all-time with $257.64M-$260.6M.
Infinity War opened in the final weekend of April 2018 to $257.698M. We’ll wait for Sony to officially call the new record in the morning, but it looks very promising.
While Sony reported this morning that the Jon Watts-directed movie would be down 22% today from Saturday’s $73.8M with $57.35M, we’re hearing from industry sources that No Way Home is off between -12% to -16% today from Saturday, which would mean a range of $61.99M to $64.94M.
On the lower end, that keeps Spider-Man: No Way Home as the 3rd highest domestic opening of all-time, but with roughly $58K cash less than Infinity War‘s debut. Among all Sundays, Spider-Man: No Way Home looks to rank third behind Avengers: Endgame ($90.3M) and Avengers: Infinity War ($69.2M), and ahead of Star Wars: Force Awakens ($60.55M).
