Madame Web Hits Record Low for Sony Spider-Man Movies at the Box Office

Written by on February 19, 2024

(IGN) – Madame Web has struggled to ensnare audiences for its opening weekend at the box office, hitting a record low in the Sony Spider-Man Universe.

Sony’s latest superhero film grossed $17.6 million in the U.S. during its 3-day opening weekend and $25.8 million during a six-day period, per Variety, leading to the worst opening for any Spider-Man Universe movie, including the critically-panned vampire flick Morbius, which made $39.1 million in its three-day debut in 2022.

Madame Web opened in second place behind Paramount’s latest music biopic, Bob Marley: One Love, which earned $27.7 million in the U.S. during the 3-day weekend and $51 million during its six-day stretch. It added $29 million overseas, while Madame Web launched internationally with $25.7 million at the box office.

After failing to reach the top spot, Madame Web claimed another unwanted title as it became the first Marvel-based movie since Fox’s Fantastic Four reboot to not open at number one. That film, stylized as Fant4stic, opened with $26.2 million in the U.S. when it hit theaters in 2015, putting it behind Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation.
