Worldwide the film has continued to deliver. It is one of the few Hollywood releases of late to receive a China release, and it paid off with £13.85m ($17.2m). In the UK, Spider-Man: Across The Spider-Verse led the box office for the final weekend of the half-term holidays across 561 sites taking in almost £6.66m ($8.9m) for its debut.

This was more than double the weekend’s gross for The Little Mermaid, which took £3.34m ($4.15m) and settled for second place and stands on around £12m ($14m) so far. The total gross so far for Across The Spider-Verse stands at £167m ($208m), and the chances of smashing past £402m ($500m), especially if the domestic gross continues to gather pace, are very high.
