I Think ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’ is Going to Make a Billion Dollars

Yep. I’m predicting it now. Spider-Man: No Way Home is bound to be the first film during the pandemic-era to make a billion dollars. And Shang-Chi is another major reason why.

Spider-Man: No Way Home' Trailer Beats 'Avengers: Endgame' Record - Variety

One week ago the highly-anticipated No Way Home trailer dropped and unsurprisingly the fandom shattered the internet for days on end about the trailer. It broke the record for most views of a trailer in a day with 355, 500, 000 views, roughly seven million more views than Endgame which previously held the record. That just goes to show the level of excitement revolving around this film.

Shang-Chi doesn't have a release date in China, why that's a big deal

And now Shang-Chi, an obscure Asian Marvel superhero that a lot of people didn’t know about, has shattered Labor Day box-office records and grossed 71.3 million with its domestic box-office earnings over the opening weekend and is set to make more money in its first four days than Thor: The Dark World, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Guardians of the Galaxy, and Doctor Strange! And that’s during the scary throes of the pandemic!

Will ‘The Rise of Skywalker’ Make a Billion Dollars?

The Rise of Skywalker has opened to a $374 million opening weekend at the box-office globally, which is by no means a failure, but it is the lowest-grossing opening weekend of the sequel trilogy. And with the mixed reviews and poor Rotten Tomatoes score, it’s very clear that The Rise of Skywalker may be the first Star Wars film under Disney, besides Solo: A Star Wars Story, that’ll have a hard time reaching a billion dollars.

There are several diehard Star Wars fans who are going to see the film multiple times but there are others who have no desire to see the hodgepodge of a disaster again on the big screen. Leastwise, the global audience who will never be as kind as US audiences.

The percentage of people going to see the film will drop substantially over the next week and then what? How many more people will continue to support this film that let them down so much?

The Last Jedi oozed its way to making $1.33 billion even despite the outrage poured on by fans. But opposed to The Rise of SkywalkerThe Last Jedi was actually pretty good. It was cinematographically enticing and it was creatively imaginative. The Rise of Skywalker barely has any appeal other than its characters who we Star Wars fans have grown to love so much. But are they enough?

MAJOR SPOILERS AHEAD! Continue reading Will ‘The Rise of Skywalker’ Make a Billion Dollars?

And Just When You Thought You Had Enough of ‘Avengers: Endgame’

Avengers: Endgame debuted worldwide about a month and a half ago. In that time it has managed to make over 2.7 billion dollars and is nearing Avatar‘s record for the highest-grossing film of all time. So, what does Kevin Feige have in store for avid Marvel fans in the days before Spider-Man: Far from Home. Apparently, from June 28-30, Avengers: Endgame will, according to Kevin Feige, “Not an extended cut, but there will be a version going into theaters with a bit of a marketing push with a few new things at the end of the movie. If you stay and watch the movie, after the credits, there’ll be a deleted scene, a little tribute, and a few surprises.”

Um…woah. I mean…woah.

Avatar is a great movie but compared to Avengers: Endgame there’s no contest. Endgame deserves to hold that top spot and honestly, the thought of seeing a deleted scene, a touching tribute, and whatever surprises Marvel may have in store for us, is worth going to see the movie again.

And what makes it even more worth seeing, Avatar has made $2.78 billion. Avengers: Endgame is currently around $2.74 billion.

Come on, fellow Avengers. Let’s assemble and push this movie to the top of the record books. We. Are. Groot!

‘Avengers: Endgame’ Hulk Smashes Box Office Records This Weekend

Avengers: Endgame was expected to shatter box-office records and to potentially make a billion dollars in its opening weekend. It ended up making more than that with $1.2 billion! dollars, absolutely devastating any box-office records in the past.

Infinity War barely managed to surpass The Force Awakens‘s record with $257.7 million dollars in its opening weekend but Endgame DESTROYED that by making $350 million dollars this past weekend. And overseas in China, it made $330.5 million in its opening weekend, barreling past its past box-office records.

Avengers: Endgame, in one weekend, has made more money than nearly every single Harry Potter film, excluding Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 which it will probably exceed in the next couple of days. It’s made more money than The Dark Knight trilogy, nearly every Star Wars movie except for The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi. Basically, Avengers: Endgame has made more money than most movies have ever made in a single weekend!

The question is, can this momentum continue and lead Avengers: Endgame to FINALLY dethroning Avatar? We’ll have to wait and see. 🙂

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a spectacular day.
