It was combination of a few factors. This is the first film that fells "like an event" and not watered down or compromised. {nm} VictorY Dec 27, 15:16

The film also delivers for fans big, and doesn't tell them to just accpet changes that limits their own fandom. {nm} VictorY Dec 27, 15:18

A long list of factors, to varying degrees.... notfabio Dec 27, 15:24

It has 3 generations of Spider-Man characters. {nm} Antibody Dec 27, 15:24

I don't think this has ever been done before, combine 3 different timelines/universe into one. {nm} Antibody Dec 27, 15:30

Star Trek: First Contact did 2 generations. {nm} Antibody Dec 27, 15:34

I meant Generations {nm} Antibody Dec 27, 15:35

X-MEN Days of Future Past is probably the closest comparison almost doubled X-Men First Class (but barely nudged higher than X-Men 3) {nm} notfabio Dec 27, 15:43

Huge interest, 1st trailer huge views/likes, 2nd trailer huge views/likes, 1st day of sales 42M (1-2M behind only EG all time) {nm} ad48 Dec 27, 15:46

3 Spideys, all villains back, then reviews were good (which was the only thing holding it back under 200M OW {nm} ad48 Dec 27, 15:47

Should we screen it at Delta House if we have not seen the two predecessors? Or should we find the others first? Thank you. {nm} SenJohnBlutarsky Dec 27, 16:19

You should watch the previous two to get the full impact. Helps to have knowledge from the Maguire and Garfield films as well. {nm} Antibody Dec 27, 16:41

Sounds like an enormous investment for a comic book movie, but maybe. Thanks! {nm} SenJohnBlutarsky Dec 27, 17:36
