Spider-Verse 2 Makes Sony History With Record-Breaking Box Office

Sony Pictures Animation has a big hit on its hands as Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse just set a new record for a studio full of family hits.
After an electrifying $120 million opening weekend to kick off June"s box office returns, Spider-Verse 2 has had continued success, dominating fellow Multiversal superhero flick The Flash.
The spectacular sequel already blazed passed Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, which was a critical phenomenon but only grossed  $375.5 million worldwide in 2018, proving Sony"s understanding of how to make this universe succeed.
Spider-Verse 2 Breaks Sony Pictures Animation Record SonySpider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse passed $600 million at the worldwide box office, breaking the record for the highest-grossing film in Sony Pictures Animation history.
To date, Spider-Verse 2 has earned $607 million globally, swinging past the studio"s previous record holder, The Smurfs, at $563 million.
The top 20 Sony Animation films include several Hotel Transylvania hits, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, The Smurfs, and many more family films, as listed by The Numbers:
  • Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse - $607 million (still in theaters)
  • The Smurfs - $563 million
  • Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation - $527 million
  • Hotel Transylvania 2 - $469 million
  • Hotel Transylvania - $378 million
  • Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse - $375 million
  • The Smurfs 2 - $348 million
  • Peter Rabbit - $346 million
  • Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 - $274 million
  • Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs - $236 million
  • The Emoji Movie - $216 million
  • Smurfs: The Lost Village - $197 million
  • Open Season - $191 million
  • Goosebumps - $158 million
  • The Angry Birds Movie 2 - $152 million
  • Peter Rabbit 2: The Runaway - $150 million
  • Arthur Christmas - $147 million
  • The Pirates! Band of Misfits - $136 million
  • Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween - $93 million
  • The Star - $62 millionFor further context, Across the Spider-Verse hasn"t topped any of the live-action Spider-Man films, trailing 2014"s The Amazing Spider-Man 2 by about $100 million.
    Will Spider-Verse 3 Go Beyond the Box Office?Following a similar (yet smaller-sized) trajectory as the MCU"s Spider-Man: Homecoming trilogy, Beyond the Spider-Verse is primed to be this franchise"s biggest winner.
    Following that logic, Homecoming made $878.3 worldwide, followed by $1.1 billion from Far From Home and the all-time great $1.9 billion No Way Home performance.
    In this animated Spider-Man franchise, the big jump was between Spider-Verse 1 & 2, which means fans perhaps shouldn"t expect the same leap when Spider-Verse 3 releases in 2024.
    However, it is fair to predict that it will earn even more than Spider-Verse 2, especially following a cliffhanger that fans are still discussing a month after its release.
    If Across the Spider-Verse doesn"t reach the $700 million mark, look out for Spider-Verse 3 to be the first animated spidey flick to outperform a live-action Sony Pictures production.
    Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse is now playing in theaters worldwide.
