“Spider-Man: No Way Home” Swings to 4th on All-Time Box Office List
Spider-Man: No Way Home has swung into history. The multiverse-tripping, Spider-Man tripling mega-hit officially became the fourth-highest-grossing film ever on Monday, passing Black Panther to end the day with $702.6 million in ticket sales. No Way Home joins only five films to ever cross the $700 million mark domestically—Black Panther ($700.4m), Avatar ($760.5m), Avengers: Endgame ($858.4m), and Star Wars: The Force Awakens ($936.7m).
It’s extra incredible that No Way Home has crossed this threshold considering it did so during a pandemic, and during a peak of the pandemic due to the omicron variant. As of now, No Way Home is 8th all-time globally, having amassed $1.63 billion as of Monday.
Fueling No Way Home‘s boffo ticket sales domestically was the coveted 18-34 demographic. Yet it’s clear that tons of people were excited to see the latest adventure starring Tom Holland’s Peter Parker, no doubt intrigued by the promise of all that multiverse madness that brought back villains from previous Spider-Man franchises. There was also plenty of speculation that if villains from other timelines were going to appear, might that not mean that other Spider-Men might make their entrance, too?
If you’re one of the millions of people who have seen No Way Home, you know the answer.
