“Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse” did well at the theater’s Webs $17.35 Million in Advance Sales!

What’s up, danger? After almost five years, it’s time to swing back into the Spider-Verse. Sony’s sequel “Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse” has made $17.35 million in Thursday previews at the box office.

The cartoon sequel is set to open this weekend, and some estimates say it could make as much as $90 million or more. It’s a big jump over the first movie, “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse,” which started in 2018 with $35.4 million and had $3.5 million in Thursday previews.

The Thursday total also makes “Across the Spider-Verse” the second-highest preview gross for an animated movie, after “The Incredibles 2’s” $18.5 million, and the second-highest previews for any “Spider-Man” movie, after “Spider-Man: No Way Home’s” $50 million.


Many of the actors from the first movie are back, including Shameik Moore as Miles Morales, Hailee Steinfeld as Gwen Stacy, and Jake Johnson as Peter B. Parker. Miles has grown up as Spider-Man since he got his spider skills in “Into the Spider-Verse” and met other versions of the web-slinging hero.

In the second movie, he meets even more Spider-People, like Oscar Isaac’s Miguel O’Hara, Issa Rae’s Jessica Drew, Karan Soni’s Spider-Man India, and Daniel Kaluuya’s Spider-Punk.

Most of the reviews have been good, which is interesting because “Into the Spider-Verse” was already well-liked by reviewers and Spider-Man fans. Owen Gleiberman, the top film critic for Variety, said in his review, “They’ve done it.

“Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse” doesn’t just keep Miles Morales’ story going. The movie takes the story to new levels of awesomeness that make it a true spiritual sequel to the first movie. This one spins our heads even more than the last one did, and fans, including me, wouldn’t have it any other way.
