(Reuters) – London-based ODEON Cinemas said on Monday it sold over 200,000 advance tickets of Marvel superhero movie “Spider-Man: No Way Home” in the first week, breaking a record held by “Avengers: Endgame” and indicating a good appetite for movie going this festive season despite Omicron concerns.

ODEON, owned by the world’s largest cinema chain AMC Entertainment, said the tickets sales for the movie, starring Tom Holland as the friendly neighbourhood hero, was three times that of recently released “James Bond – No Time to Die”.
