As Spider-Man: No Way Home continues to break movie office records, it now accounts for 12 percent of the $4.45 billion domestic total for 2021.
On December 17, 2021, the third film in the MCU Spider-Man trilogy debuted to the second-highest box office debut in Hollywood history.
It has gone on to dominate the box office in succeeding weeks, not only in the United States but also in a number of other international markets. The film was also the first during the COVID epidemic era to gross more than $1 billion worldwide.
12% Of Total US Box Office
One of the most eagerly awaited superheroes and Marvel films in recent years has been Spider-Man: No Way Home. With 355.5 million views in the first 24 hours, the teaser trailer established an all-time record for most global views in the first 24 hours in August 2021, and the buzz for the film only grew exponentially from there.
Cast additions from iconic former Spider-Man franchise characters like Willem Dafoe’s Green Goblin, Alfred Molina’s Doc Ock, and others increased fan expectations. The picture, which stars current MCU Spider-Man stars Tom Holland and Zendaya, caused many online movie ticketing services to crash when it first went on sale on November 29, had also caused many online movie ticketing sites to crash. It has easily surpassed all previous Spider-Man and Sony films in terms of box office revenue.
Grossed $611 million domestically
After less than three weeks in theatres, the picture has already grossed $611 million domestically. According to The Wrap, this sum accounts for 12% of the US box office in 2021. It has surpassed Incredibles 2 to take the tenth spot on the all-time domestic chart. In the next days, Spidey will continue to climb the ranking, with the film set to take the eighth slot, ahead of The Avengers and Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Within a comparable timeframe, the MCU smash will exceed Frozen 2’s $1.45 billion worldwide gross, putting it in a tie for 10th place.
The latest Spider-Man picture has also helped the domestic box office surpass last year’s $2.28 billion by a factor of 100. It will encounter little, if any, competition in the weeks leading up to the January 14th release of Paramount’s horror franchise’s next sequel to Scream.
Since the release of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker in 2019, the domestic and worldwide box office has not seen a hit of this magnitude or anything close to it. That film was one of the last pre-pandemic tentpoles to be a box office hit, and Spider-Man: No Way Home has already surpassed its domestic and international box office totals. It is impossible to overstate the significance of any picture reaching such heights in any period, but especially in the COVID era.
