It has been announced that the Best Animated Movie award at the Critics’ Choice Awards has gone to Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse and I think there’s no surprise in this thing as we all know that the movie was a huge success and also got a lot of praise for its animation and story. But, this award really means a lot to Sony Pictures and to all the members of this movie’s team.
Well, the movie has won the ‘Best Animated Feature Award’ and it the Critics’ Choice Awards announced this good news on their Twitter account before the official beginning of the ceremony. The tweet is down below and you can have a look at the way they’ve congratulated the entire cast of the movie.
Well, the movie has already won a lot of other awards but winning a Critics’ Choice Award is always a one-step-ahead thing for any movie in comparison to the competitors. But, I think the movie surely deserves this award because of the way they’ve shown a very complex story with a lot of Spider-Men in front of us which could have become a topic of irritation if not shown properly.
The interesting thing about the making of this film is that the movie had a trio of directors as Bob Persichetti, Rodney Rothman, and Peter Ramsey injected their different and interesting styles in the movie. Normally, we see a lot of conflict among multiple directors of a film but in this one, with God’s grace all the three directors helped each other and brought something incredible in front of us.
In the context of the success of these three directors, the producer of the movie Chris Miller and co-producer and co-writer Phil Lord stated their views talking about the great partnership this trio of directors had during the making of this film. They said in an interview with ComicBook.com,
“Often it can be if people are trying to make a different movie, right?” Miller stated. “This is a situation where the movie was so ambitious, it was trying to do so many groundbreaking things in its visual style, in its storytelling style, in its cinematic style. Everything about it … The sound mix was probably going to be groundbreaking, so it required a lot of work. Every version of these movies is a collaboration of hundreds of filmmakers working together, and in the best versions people are contributing their creative ideas, and the people, the directors, and the producers are the ones that get to decide which of the things fit the road that you’re going down.”
“Each of those guys had their own superpower,” Lord explained. “I think it’s our preferred way to make movies is to bring a lot of talented people together and collaborate. It’s the most fun. You learn the most, and I think you get the best work.”
“It wasn’t always easy because obviously with a bunch of opinionated, creative people, there’s going to be moments where you’re like, ‘Well, I think it should be this way to solve this thing that we’re trying to do,'” Miller stated. “But it was a slow and sometimes painful process, but ultimately the best idea would win, and we were able to make something that we all knew was something special.”
The success of the movie is also getting a lot of attention as the movie has crossed the $300 million mark at the box-office. In the domestic market, it went on to cross a sum of $147 million and a sum of $154 million in the international market. It’s no surprise that the movie has grossed a bigger sum at the international market instead of domestic because the fan-following of Spider-Man is quite incredible all over the world even in comparison to its domestic market.
Also, the movie went on to become the 74th-highest grossing animated movie of all-time. It impressed the critics with its amazing direction, storyline, and the way they have shown and kept their focus on every character is quite impressive. The talks of the sequel are already out in the market and fans are waiting for the movie so eagerly but for now, all we have in our hands is Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. Go watch it, if you haven’t already.
