Spider-Man: No Way Home has been the talk of the comic book movie world for quite some time now. The Spidey threequel hits cinemas on December 17 and has fan anticipation at a fever pitch.
Every little detail coming from the Marvel title is lighting up Twitter feeds and internet message boards with fervent speculation. All that the movie needed was a trailer to push that enthusiasm over the edge, and boy, did the first No Way Home teaser deliver on that front.
Released just a few short weeks ago, the first trailer for Spider-Man: No Way Home broke records almost instantaneously. The Tom Holland-led venture set a new bar for trailer viewership online, outpacing the previous king Avengers:Endgame. Whether it was seeing Peter and co. in action again or the teases of a larger wall-crawler universe, the debut of No Way Home's first footage ramped up the Spidey delirium to unseen levels.
And here, more than a month after that first teaser's debut, it seems the fervor has not dissipated one bit.
Three Cheers for Spider-Man 3
FrileX (@jbhayek8) captured and shared footage of a French cinema going bonkers over the recently released Spider-Man: No Way Home trailer. The teaser played before a screening of Venom: Let There be Carnage at Le Grand Rex in Paris, and the audience can be heard hooting and hollering throughout.

Le Grand Rex theater has become notorious for having one of the biggest screenings/screening rooms in all of France, justifying the large and pompous crowd heard in the video.
A Boiling Point for No Way Home
The excitement for No Way Home seems like it could not get any more intense. Sure, fans will often cheer during the showing of a movie (see the dozens of Endgame reaction videos online), but rarely does one see this kind of excitement for a two-minute trailer. It seems this web-slinging adventure is breaking the norm in that way.
The MCU has been an international success nearly since day one, and this pair of videos is a perfect example of that. This is not happening at the biggest cinema in downtown Los Angeles, no, it's happening in Paris.
No matter where one looks in the world, at this point, they are sure to find someone wearing the Spidey mask and eagerly waiting for No Way Home.
One thing that will be curious to look for after that December 17 worldwide premiere is the box office receipts for this film. While Marvel box office numbers are always fascinating to look at, it will be particularly interesting for the web-head.
Keen-eyed fans have seen movies like Shang-Chi and Black Widow breaking pandemic ticket sale numbers, but No Way Home is likely going to be a whole different beast. With a fever pitch in fan anticipation such as the one this project is seeing right now, it would not be all that surprising if this film broke revenue records despite releasing during a worldwide pandemic.
People are getting more and more comfortable with the idea of going back to the movies, as evidenced by recent Eternals presale numbers. So a perfect storm is brewing for Spider-Man, where audiences can't wait to see this movie all while feeling more comfortable than they in months to go out and sit in a theater.
It is not hyperbolic to say that come December 17, Spider-Man: No Way Home could be just the movie Hollywood has been waiting for.
