Despite the Omicron variant, which again raised health alerts in much of the world, Spider-Man: No Way Home triumphed at the box office. Of course, in some countries it is having more success than in others, as is the case of Mexico. This week, Spider-Man: No Way Home dethroned Avengers: Endgame and became the highest-grossing film in the history of the Latin American country .
Such an important achievement has been announced by Sony Pictures, which through its Twitter account for Mexico shared the following message: “We are partying! Spider-Man: No way home [ Spider-Man: No Way Home ] is now the #1 box office movie in Mexico of all time! Of course, it is surprising that this milestone, which seemed unattainable a couple of years ago, has occurred in the midst of a pandemic.

Mexico is one of many countries where theaters have reactivated their activity since the previous year. Although initially there was a reduced capacity in the theaters -leaving empty seats-, by the last quarter of 2021 it was already possible to see completely full functions. Among them, of course, those for Spider-Man: No Way Home . It is clear, once again, that Marvel movies are a gold mine in Mexico .
The relationship between Marvel and the Mexican market is so strong that, on more than one occasion, they have advanced the premieres of their productions in the country. With Spider-Man: No Way Home was no exception , since the new Tom Holland arrived on December 15 instead of the 17th, which was the original date.
Unfortunately, Sony Pictures did not release the collection of Spider-Man: No Way Home so far in Mexico. However, according to data from the National Chamber of the Film Industry, up to December 31 he had entered $1,274 million pesos . Avengers: Endgame , meanwhile, entered $1,474 million pesos until the end of its exhibition in theaters. This means, then, that in the first two weeks of January it raised more than $200 million pesos.
