Spider-Man: No Way Home crosses paths with Avatar and officially becomes the third highest-grossing film of all time in the United States. It’s been a wonderful box office journey for the star of Tom Holland, released two months ago. The film has broken several records since the day of its opening weekend and has now broken another.
Directed by Jon Watts, the film proved to be a surprisingly blockbuster and the biggest film of 2021. It saw the return of former Spideys, Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire, who along with Tom’s version battled with original villains like Green Goblin, Dr. Otto Ocativius, and more.
The latest update to Spider-Man: No Way Home is that it’s finally made it through James Cameron’s 2009 blockbuster Avatar. The Tom Holland directed collected more than $1.8 billion at the global box office, according to Box Office Mojo. This includes $760.98 million at the national level and $1.04 billion internationally.
Meanwhile, Avatar made $749.76 million domestically. Spider-Man: No Way Home is now the third-biggest movie in the US and is just behind Marvel’s Avengers: Endgame and Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Even though the Tom Holland star broke many records and helped reclaim cinemas, the film was snubbed from the Best Picture nomination at the 2022 Oscars, which left fans upset.
However, it was nominated in the Special Effects category. Speaking of its box office numbers, it turns out that the cast didn’t expect the movie to get that big. Recently, Benedict Cumberbatch, who interprets the role of Doctor Strange, confided that he doubted the screenings of the film.
Spider-Man: No Way Home is only a few million people away from crossing the $2 billion Brand. What’s really interesting is that the Tom Holland-directed was able to make those numbers while released under a pandemic, when moviegoer capacity was comparatively lower.
