'Spider-Man: Across The Spider-Verse' Box Office Starts Off Huge

The Spider-Man: Across The Spider-Verse box office starts off huge as the Thursday previews numbers are the second best for an animated film.

Yesterday saw the flick web $17.35 million which is the second best following The Incredibles 2‘s $18.5 million from back in 2018.

For comparison, Into the Spider-Verse only brought in $3.5 million for its Thursday previews, so again this is huge for the film and Sony.

Regarding the opening box office, if it sticks around those Incredibles 2 numbers, look out, as Incredibles 2 opened with a massive $182.6 million.

The Spider-Man: Across The Spider-Verse opening box office is tracking around $115 million, but that seems way too low (Into the Spider-Verse opened to $35M).

The reactions to the movie are also super high as over at Rotten Tomatoes, Spider-Man: Across The Spider-Verse has a 96% score from critics and the Thursday previews fans love it too with a 97% Audience Score. Into the Spider-Verse is also high with a 97% critics score and a 93% Audience Score.

IMDb also gives Across The Spider-Verse high marks with a 9.1 score compared to the first movie’s 8.4.

This could be another Super Mario which opened huge and has made over $1.2 billion.

Update: First Friday is best of 2023.
