SONY’s Home Media Sales Increase 104% Thanks To Spider-Man

0

Spider-Man: No Way Home was a massive success when it released late last year. It was the highest grossing film in the post-COVID era making over $1.9 Billion world wide (currently 6th highest grossing film of all time), it was the highest grossing Spider-Man film of all time and is considered to be one of the best Marvel films ever made.

With the upcoming release of the extended cut aka Spider-Man: No Way Home – The More Fun Stuff Version in theaters the film is guaranteed to make even more money for SONY, putting No Way Home on an even higher place in box office history. 

But it turns out that not only are ticket sales up, but also SONY’s Home Media division. SONY Pictures Home Entertainment’s first quarter FY 2023 report stated they had made $282 Million for that person (which ended June 30th). That is a 104% increase from $138 Million from the previous year period.

This increase in home media revenue can be attributed to the home media release of Spider-Man: No Way Home, as well as multiple re-releases of past Spider-Man films from 2002 – Present Day. on both physical media, digital distribution and streaming.

This was clearly a good quarter for SONY. It shows that buzz for the popular web slinger is bigger than ever. But with the Tom Holland series in question on if it will even continue we might not see a number this high again for a while. If their current slate of upcoming Spider-Verse films preform as bad as Morbius did then the goose may have ran out of golden eggs.

Upcoming Spider-Verse films include Kraven the Hunter, Madame Web and El Muerto. There is also the two animated films Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse Part 1 and Part 2.
