We’re yet in another year where a new Spider-Man movie is going to be released, and with that comes box office expectations! However, this isn’t just any other year as it’s coming off a previous one where moviegoing was largely seen as risqué thanks to the coronavirus pandemic. Last year, when the virus became a serious global threat what ensued afterwards was something theaters couldn’t ever had anticipated. The virus impact on the industry was catastrophic; causing many employee lay-offs, many chains to declare bankruptcy, or just go out of business. Even the few theaters that did re-open re-opened with many movies either delayed to next year or dumped on streaming. Because of this, it wouldn’t have been an overstatement to say theatrical exhibition was going to be extinct. Thankfully, due in large part to vaccine rollouts, this year see’s theaters going through a robust recovery phase as cases continue to drastically go down in key box office markets like the United States. The strong covid era performances of movies like Godzilla Vs Kong and Quiet Place Part 2 shows there’s still signs of life in moviegoing. Hopefully, these successes may serve as a prognosticator that by the time the movie gets released in December the box office climate will be healthy enough for this film to almost perform like it would’ve if the virus never had happened. With that in mind, how do you expect the movie to do? I think this movie ultimately does close to a billion dollars but what say you guys and gals? Discuss!
