‘Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse’ Swings Onto Tracking; Sony Marvel Sequel Could Open As High As $80M U.S. – Box Office

Movies

The sequel to the Oscar winning animated hit is looking at an opening between $70M to $80M per two tracking agencies as it heads into its June 2-4 opening.

Spider-Man: Across the Universe, while it has its fanboy fandom, doesn’t necessarily comp to a live-action Marvel Cinematic Universe title per distribution sources, despite the audience spillover, and it’s a feathered fish among animated IP. The first movie, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, opened to $35.3M in mid December 2018 and grossed $190.2M domestic and $384.2M WW off of a super A+ CinemaScore. It’s such a unique property given its high-minded conceit and avant garde animation. I’m hearing Sonic the Hedgehog 2 is more the comp here, that pic opening to $72.1M.

Across the Universe is directed by Kemp Powers, Joaquim Dos Santos, and Justin K. Thompson. Phil Lord, Christopher Miller and Dave Callaham wrote the script.
