“This is the season of fantastic news! – We are delighted to let all Spider-Man fans know that thanks to you, Sony Pictures in Southern Africa has achieved its biggest opening weekend ever, of R20 Million +  🎉

Wow! – This is fantastic news, thank you Southern Africa! 🥳”

Spider-Man: No Way Home scored the third-biggest domestic opening of all time, taking in an estimated $253 million (R3.9 billion) in its massive North American weekend opening.

Analysts predict it will be the first movie released during the pandemic to be labelled a billion-dollar-grossing film.

WHAT IS THE BIG HYPE ALL ABOUT?

Spider-Man: No Way Home is the third stand-alone film with Tom Holland starred as the widely loved Peter Parker. Another character everyone loves is Michelle “MJ” Jones who is played again by the beautiful Zendaya Coleman.

The storyline continues, picking up where the sequel Far From Home ended. Spider-Man’s identity has been revealed and he is no longer able to separate his normal life as Peter Parker from the risky life of being a superhero.

He asks for help from Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) and the stakes then become even more dangerous, forcing him to discover what it truly means to be Spider-Man.

Bringing action, romance, comedy and fantasy…the new Spider-Man movie is an all-around winner for fans of the franchise!
