‘Spider-Man: No Way’ Enters Top 10 Highest Grossing Films at Domestic Box Office
Another week another milestone for Spider-Man: No Way Home. Sony and Marvel’s smash hit added another $52.7 million at the domestic box office over the holiday weekend to become the tenth highest grossing film at the domestic box office of all-time. The film has now grossed $609.9 million through Sunday, just passing Pixar’s Incredibles 2, which grossed $608.5 million.
Worldwide Spider-Man: No Way Home has grossed $1.25 billion which makes it the seventeenth highest grossing film of all-time. The film is expected to move into fifteenth place as it is projected to pass Frozen 2 $1.26 billion and Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom $1.3 billion this coming week. What makes this even more remarkable aside from a pandemic that is still ongoing, No Way Home is hitting these numbers without a release in China yet. When the film hit China it is expected to add an additional $250 million to its worldwide total, which would skyrocket the newest Spidey film into the top ten highest grossing films of all-time.
A fourth Tom Holland Spider-Man film is already in development, with two additional movie rumored. Also rumored, is a Spider-Man project with Andrew Garfield. Garfield is the shining star of No Way Home to many fans, sparking a cry for an Amazing Spider-Man 3. Multiple rumors state that Garfield would return to take on the Sinister Six and possibly be the Spider-Man connected to Tom Hardy’s Venom. The studio has yet to address any of these rumors at this time.
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.
