Sony has announced that Spider-Man: No Way Home is now the third highest-grossing film in US history. The new feat outpaces Avatar by James Cameron.
“No Way Home” dethrones “Avatar” (grossing only $760.5 million) by $760.988 million, gaining momentum to reach a record-breaking achievement of its own with Valentine’s Day surge of $1.615 million and Marvel Studios recent blockbusters on everyone’s mind.
“No Way Home” hit the US box office last December 17, with lead characters portrayed by Tom Holland and Zendaya. However, the record-breaking achievement comes only after 60 days of its premiere.
The newest installment in the Spider-Man franchise now sits at $1.8 billion globally, notably before its launch in China. Moreover, it puts this movie into the international all-time list in an eighth-place where “Avatar” is currently residing.
The sci-fi movie by James Cameron has been battling off Disney-owned films since the moment it boosted to the summit of the US box office in 2009. In 2015, “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” (currently at number one) bested “Avatar,” then later in 2019, “Avengers: Endgame” (currently at number two) surpassed the film.
“Black Panther” currently sits the fifth place behind “No Way Home” and “Avatar,” with “Avengers: Infinity War,” “Titanic,” “Jurassic World,” “The Avengers,” and “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” closely ranking at the tenth place.
