Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is First with December’s Largest Animated Opening

Spider-Man Into the Spider-Verse

The end of the year is looking pretty good for comic adaptations so far. Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse brought in an estimated $35.4 million for the largest three-day animated opening in the month of December.

The film is receiving universal praise from critics and fans with a “A+” CinemaScore from opening day audiences. The audience was 63% male with 41% aged 25 or older.

Internationally, the film brought in $21 million from 44 overseas market for a worldwide total of $56.4 million on a $90 million budget.

The film’s success may throw a wrench into Aquaman‘s plans with the films likely cutting into each other’s audiences. That film opens this coming weekend where it has tough competition between SONY’s take on Marvel’s hero and Bumblebee.

In second place was The Mule which opened with an estimated $17.2 million on a $50 million budget. It received an “A-” CinemaScore with a 54% male audience and 88% over the age of 25.

In third place was Dr. Seuss’ The Grinch with an estimated $11.58 million after six weeks. It’s close to $240 million domestically with $133.4 million internationally after its $23.3 million overseas this past weekend.

In fourth place was Ralph Breaks the Internet which dropped from last week’s first. It earned an estimated $9.58 million to bring its domestic total just shy of $155 million. Internationally it added $7.9 million to bring that total to over $285 million. It opens in Japan and Hong Kong next weekend with more markets yet to open.

Rounding out the top five was Mortal Engines. The $100 million production earned just $7.5 million domestically. Bad reviews, a “B-” CinemaScore, and a confusing marketing is creating a massive failure. The audience was 55% maes and 64% were aged 25 or older. Internationally the film added 11 markets and brought in $11.5 million for a total of $34.8 million. Disaster is the word you’re looking for.

Deadpool 2‘s Once Upon a Deadpool came in at #11 and brought in $2.6 million. This PG-13 re-release will be added to the total for Deadpool 2 which stands at $322.3 million. It was also released in 12 international markets where it brought in about $1 million.

Aquaman continued its strong foreign performance where it added 42 markets and brought in an estimated $126.4 million for an international total of $261.3 million. It still has to open in France, South Korea, Germany, Spain, Australia, Ital, and Japan which will go into February 2019.

On Saturday night the film earned an estimated $2.9 million from a single paid sneak preview from 1,225 theaters in North America.

The movie opens this coming weekend where it’ll have to compete with Bumblebee which makes its fight to be first more difficult. There’s numerous films competing for the same audience this coming weekend.

We’ll be back in an hour for a deeper dive into this year’s comic adaptations.
