SPIDER-MAN: INTO THE SPIDER-VERSE Exceeding Expectations At The Box Office; Could Top $40 Million

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is having quite the weekend and based on the latest numbers, it looks increasingly likely that it could potentially top $40 million before the end of business Sunday.

After earning $12.6 million on Friday, Sony's critically-acclaimed Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is swinging to an impressive $35 million to $40 million opening weekend, which would make it the largest debut for an animated movie ever in the month of December.

While conservative estimates are placing the film's debut at or around $35.5 million, it's starting to look increasingly likely that it could actually top $40 million, possibly even reaching $42 million before the end of business tomorrow night. A major win for both Marvel Entertainment and Sony Pictures as the film gears up for what should be an extremely leggy and lucrative run through the end of the year. 

Bob Persichetti, Peter Ramsey and Rodney Rothman co-directed the animated feature, which is currently boasting a 97% approval rating on review aggregator RottenTomatoes, an 87 on Metacritic, and a spectacular A+ CinemaScore; while Phil Lord and Rodney Rothman penned the script. Lord also produced the picture with Chris Miller. 

Meanwhile, Clint Eastwood's The Mule is taking aim at second place with approximately $17-18 million while it looks like Universal's Mortal Engines will be one of the year's biggest disappointments as it heads toward a likely fifth-place finish with an estimated $7-9 million.
