Box office: Spider-Man winds world in web of dreams

Spider-Man: No Way Back overwhelms the world's box office even beyond the dreams of Hollywood executives.

Over six weeks No Time to Die has made $32.76 million from the Australian market, and is now down to $536,000 over last weekend.

That is impressive in these weird times. But Spider-Man: No Way Home took $26.19 million in Australia over a single weekend, so it is roughly six times as enticing as the most beloved recent Bond film. Strewth, as we say on this side of the equator. 

It took $8.74 million off its first day, sprang out on a fairly modest 315 cinemas, but on 1121 screens which puts the picture on high rotation in many key multiplexes. Thirteen in a single day for Doncaster is just one example.
