Spider-Man: No Way Home is continuously swinging it’s way up the all-time rankings, officially passing Titanic in the box office charts.
The latest instalment to Tom Holland’s Spider-Man maintained an incredible momentum as it approaches the one-month anniversary of its release already. It is now on the cusp of the top five after breaking the $660 million mark.
This means it officially overtakes James Cameron’s ‘Titanic’, which held US domestic box-office town for 12 years following its 1997 release.
Currently in sixth place with $668,753,195, No Way Home might even overtake Avengers: Infinity War next and could possibly even take a host at Black Panther if it manages to crack the £700 million limit.
Worldwide box office is very different from the US, as Avatar remains at the top with $2.8 billion in the global box office. Spider-Man is currently in eighth place with $1.5 billion.
But to be fair, none of the other films had a global pandemic to contend with. Therefore the web-slinger’s film deserves some major credit as it dealt with snap lockdowns and restrictions as it released. In fact, no other film released in the past 2 years even cracked the top 50.
Tom Holland’s third solo take of the web-slinger was massively well-received, with a fun but also emotionally hitting plot, brilliant performances and lots of surprises.
