Spider-Man: Into The Spiderverse is projected to be number 1 at the boxoffice.
The animated Spider-Man film is heading towards a $42 million debut from 3,813 North American locations in its debut, though other more conservative estimates place that number at $35.5 million. The animated superhero story picked up $12.6 million on Friday.
Says social media monitor RelishMix about the pic’s fantastic word of mouth, “fans are excited for this unique look on the comic book creation with its multiple universe storyline.
Shameik Moore stars as Miles Morales, the Brooklyn teen who’s the new Spider-Man, currently being trained by the old Spider-Man Peter Parker (Jake Johnson). Henry plays Morales’s dad, a sweetly embarrassing cop; Steinfeld is Gwen Stacy, who’s got a spidey sense of her own. Two key characters go largely unseen in this trailer: Schrieber’s villain Kingpin, and Ali as Morales’s uncle Aaron Davis (who was played by Donald Glover in the Spider-Man: Homecoming).
Miles Morales is another popular version of the character, first introduced in August 2011 in Ultimate Fallout #4. Like Peter Parker, he was bitten by a radioactive spider and developed superpowers, and became Spiderman after the Green Goblin killed Peter.
