It’s no secret that Spider-Man’s tryst with the multiverse is a worldwide hit, already breaking all kinds of box office records.

In its opening weekend, ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’ collected a pandemic-best $253 million (Dh929.2 million) at US theatres, according to estimates from measurement firm comScore.

Closer to home, ‘No Way Home’ broke some records in the UAE, being the first movie to sell more that 100,000 tickets in pre-release sales since the pandemic.
