‘Spider-Man No Way Home’ brings big business to Knoxville movie theaters

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) – Regal Cinemas in Turkey Creek hardly had a parking spot open Friday as the movie theater saw big crowds for the opening weekend of ‘Spider-Man No Way Home’.

Many came to the theater to take in the superhero movie after waiting years to see it.

”We ordered the suits months ago, we ordered the suits before October, hearing the rumors about Toby and Andrew we’ve been ready, I love Spider-Man,” said brothers Derrick Schofield and Keato Manghane.

Expected to gross $200 million at the box office, the movie had people thinking back to their childhood of Spider-Man movies past.

”I saw Spider-Man years ago and for it to come full circle and see all of the Spider-Man, it’s a dream come true actually,” said Churchill Moore who brought his two sons to watch the new movie.
