The sequel to Tom Holland’s favorite Spidey film, a.k.a. Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse, has swung its way into theaters. The film earned $51.7 million during its opening day, with a domestic total of $120.5 million over the whole weekend, according to Deadline. That makes it the second-biggest opening of the year so far, behind only The Super Mario Bros. Movie. It’s also the third-best opening for any Spider-Man film, after No Way Home (2021) and Spider-Man 3 (2007). Starring Shameik Moore, Hailee Steinfeld, Brian Tyree Henry, Jake Johnson, and Issa Rae, Across the Spider-Verse follows Moore as Miles Morales and Steinfeld as Gwen Stacy as they meet the new team of Spider-People known as the Spider Society, a.k.a. people with spidey power across different universes. With the release of the film, Spider-Verse became the longest western animated film at 140 minutes, which is obviously not a problem for Marvel fans who’ve become used to longer movies.
