Spider-Man: No Way Home continues to break records as the Tom Holland starrer has now become the eighth-highest grossing movie ever at the global box office. It has collected more than $1.53 billion worldwide.
Last weekend, the Spider-Man film made $64 million internationally and $33 million in the US alone. On all-time rankings, the film has pushed back films like The Avengers, Furious 7, Frozen 2 and Avengers: Age of Ultron. It’s currently behind Jurassic World and The Lion King.
At the domestic box office, Spider-Man: No Way Home has remained a force on the big screen despite the rapidly spreading omicron variant of COVID-19. With $668 million in ticket sales, it is now the sixth-highest grossing movie in history at the domestic box office, surpassing Titanic ($659 million) and Jurassic World ($652 million). In no time, it should take fifth place, which belongs to Avengers: Infinity War ($678 million), and could eventually land in fourth place, where Black Panther ($700 million) currently sits.
Jon Watts directs Spider-Man: No Way Home, closing out his trilogy of MCU Spider-Man movies. Tom Holland stars as Peter Parker, with Zendaya as MJ and Jacob Batalon as Ned. Returning villains include Jamie Foxx as Electro, Willem Dafoe as Green Goblin, and Alfred Molina as Doctor Octopus.
In Spider-Man: No Way Home, with Spider-Man’s identity now revealed, our friendly neighborhood web-slinger is unmasked and no longer able to separate his normal life as Peter Parker from the high stakes of being a superhero. When Peter asks for help from Doctor Strange, the stakes become even more dangerous, forcing him to discover what it truly means to be Spider-Man.
The film’s success tastes sweeter for all as it has managed to make this money despite all restrictions owing to COVID spike in the world yet again.
