Despite facing a crowded holiday season at the cinemas, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse continues its impressive box office run worldwide, crossing the $200 million mark at the global box office this past weekend.
The Sony animated film came in fourth place at the domestic box office this past weekend, behind Aquaman, Mary Poppins Returns and Bumblebee, earning $18 million. This puts its domestic box office total at $103.6 million and $213.2 million earned worldwide including its $109.6 million earned overseas.
With a reported production budget of $90 million, Into the Spider-Verse's impressive box office, in the face of a competitive season, and popularity with the overseas market are good signs for Sony. The studio reportedly intends to make an entire franchise out of the animated property, having already greenlit a direct sequel and spinoff film centered on Spider-Gwen.
Now released in theaters for over three weeks, it will be interesting to see if the animated film can reach the $300 million mark worldwide as the holiday season comes to an end this week.
Directed by Bob Persichetti, Peter Ramsey and Rodney Rothman, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse stars Shameik Moore, Brian Tyree Henry, Jake Johnson, Mahershala Ali, Hailee Steinfeld, Liev Schreiber, Luna Lauren Velez, Lily Tomlin, Nicolas Cage, John Mulaney and Kimiko Glenn. The film is in theaters now.
