Spider-Man: No Way Home has surpassed$ 1 billion world wide and is already generating profit for Sony and Disney.
A profit that is currently around 242 million dollars. But if it continues with this volume of business and the fear of the Omicron variant does not lead to further closures, the film is expected to end up generating a net profit of $ 610 million, making it the highest-earning Sony film ever.
However, Jon Watts’ film is destined to break a record very soon: that of the highest grossing of a Sony film, currently held by Spider-Man: Far From Home (1.13 billion). A record that will certainly make a lot of talk about itself, but it is clear that the studio is more interested in the other, the profit.
The figure of 610 million dollars, reported by Deadline , was calculated by financial experts by subtracting the budget for the production (200 million), the expenses for marketing (248), the slice of proceeds that will go to the exhibitors, but adding also the projections on the sales of television and streaming rights. Marvel Studios covered 25% of the production costs (50 million) and will therefore get 25% of the profits (152.5 million are estimated).
A profit of 610 million would be far superior to those of Spider-Man: Homecoming (200 million), Spider-Man: Far From Home (339) and, another Sony title to surpass one billion, Jumanji: Welcome to the jungle (305 , 7). But also of Disney titles such as Avengers: Infinity War (500 million), Star Wars: The Last Jedi (417.5) and Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker (300).
Tom Holland rubs his hands
Such a success will also have an excellent impact for star Tom Holland , who, according to Variety estimates , will now be able to ask for far more important figures than before. Until now Holland was paid around 1 million per film, but now it will be able to ask for 2 to 5 million for roles in indie films and between 5 and 10 million for leading roles in commercial films. Even at streaming platforms, which pay less attention to expenses, his pay could be close to 20 million.
Of course, the success of Spider-Man: No Way Home isn’t attributable to Holland alone, and Uncharted will be the real test for him. If he is successful, it will mean that Holland is also liked outside the Spider-Man saga.
