Marvel’s latest film “Spider-Man: No Way Home” topped local box office rankings on its opening day on Wednesday, drawing 635,000 audience members to theaters.
 
It marked the highest number of moviegoers on the opening day of any film released in Korea since the beginning of the pandemic.  
 
The previous record was held by Hollywood film “Fast & Furious 9,” which sold 400,000 tickets on May 19, or Buddha’s birthday, a national holiday in Korea.  
 
Other Marvel films released this year include “Eternals,” which sold 296,000 tickets; “Venom: Let There Be Carnage,” which sold 203,000 tickets and “Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings,” which sold 138,000 tickets.  
 
“Spider-Man: No Way Home,” starring Tom Holland and Zendaya, is the last of the trilogy that began with “Spider-Man” Homecoming” (2017) when Sony Pictures’ Spider-Man entered the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU).
