DALLAS (KDAF) — Despite only having a theatrical release, Spider-Man: Now Way Home has quickly smashed box office records.
The film had the second-biggest opening weekend in box office history, making about $260 million domestically, still not near as close to Avengers: Endgame’s $357 million opening weekend. It has also become the first movie since the COVID-19 pandemic to make more than $1 billion worldwide.
This begs the question, are we now “back to normal” with the theater experience? The short answer is no.
Dr. Andrew Draper, co-host of Off Script Film Review, joined the Morning After to talk about the state of the theater business.
