Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios' Spider-Man: No Way Home is headed towards a $100 million second weekend at the box office despite concerns about the COVID-19 omicron variant's spread over the holiday weekend. Spider-Man: No Way Home earned $19.65 million on its second Friday at the box office from 4,336 locations. That brings its domestic box office total up to $405 million, surpassing Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle's $404 million total to become Sony's highest-grossing film ever at the domestic box office. Projections suggest the film will earn $92-100 million over the weekend, bringing its domestic box office total to $478 million by Monday.
Spider-Man: No Way Home has generation massive excitement fan buzz, and critics have reviewed the film positively. ComicBook.com's Spencer Perry awarded the film a 4-out-of-5 five score in his review. He writes:
"Spider-Man: No Way Home marks a clear line in the sand for this character, a delineation point of where things might go. Throughout the movie, the implication is that this huge story must be told so that things can go back to being smaller, friendly-neighborhood sized, but can they? Will Marvel and Sony allow a follow-up to this movie to actually be contained? The economics of modern Hollywood would certainly lead you to believe the answer is 'No,' but Marvel and Sony leave things in an interesting place and clearly have a Peter Parker suited to handle more. If it is the end, though, it has the best final shot of any of the Marvel Studios Spider-Man movies."
Jon Watts directs Spider-Man: No Way Home, closing out his trilogy of MCU Spider-Man movies. Tom Holland stars as Peter Parker, with Zendaya as MJ and Jacob Batalon as Ned. Returning villains include Jamie Foxx as Electro, Willem Dafoe as Green Goblin, and Alfred Molina as Doctor Octopus.
