Sony’s acclaimed animated sequel is the second highest opening of 2023


Sony Pictures Animation’s “Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse” is having a spectacular start at the box office with a $120.5 million opening weekend from 4,313 theaters.

Not only is that more than triple the $35 million opening weekend of the film’s 2018 predecessor “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse,” it is more than double the previous opening weekend record for Sony Animation, which was earned by “Hotel Transylvania” with $48.4 million in 2015.

In the four-and-a-half years since “Into the Spider-Verse” first hit theaters and won the Best Animated Feature Oscar, it has gained reputation among Marvel and animation fans as one of the best “Spider-Man” adaptations ever and a groundbreaking work in computer animation.
