"Spider-Man: No Way Home" Digital Release Sets Sales Record In First Week

Spider-Man: No Way Home has continued to break records on the 101st day since its release in theaters.
As reported by Deadline, the Jon Watts-directed film has crossed the $ 800 million national box office milestone, becoming one of only three films to do so in Hollywood history after Star Wars: The Force Awakens (Episode VII) in 2015 with $ 936.6 million and Avengers: Endgame in 2019 with $ 858.3 million.
However, No Way Home has a peculiarity: the film has recently been available for purchase on various digital platforms, and this territory is also giving enormous satisfaction to Sony and Marvel Studios.

Deadline reported that the blockbuster starring Tom Holland, Zendaya, Benedict Cumberbatch, Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire sold over 2.1 million units in the United States during its first week of digital release. This is the industry's all-time record in sales for a film in its first week, ahead of all previous rival titles.
No Way Home premiered on digital platforms 88 days after its theatrical release, a rare traditional pre-pandemic window. Revenue from its electronic sales is close to $ 42 million, priced at $ 19.99. Eyes are now on the film's ever-closer physical editions, which could generate other valuable revenue for the major.
To date, Spider-Man: No Way Home has raised $ 1.89 billion at the international box office so far, making it the sixth highest-grossing film in the history of cinema and also the third in the MCU, only behind Avengers: Endgame and Avengers: Infinity War.

After such extraordinary box office success, Sony immediately stepped on the accelerator to enrich its Spider-Verse. Not long ago, the studio announced that Dakota Jones would be the protagonist of Madame Web, a film from the Sony Spider-Man's Universe, which will introduce an unreleased version of the character.
The producers of the animated film Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse (Part One) have also teased fans by suggesting that Tom Holland's Spider-Man could make an appearance in the upcoming feature film, which will arrive later this year.
