‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’ Now Only Third Film to Gross $800 Million at Domestic Box Office
The record-setting ways of what is Marvel’s biggest project of the past two years has just broken through yet another barrier as Spider-Man: No Way Home is now only the third film ever to gross $800 million at the domestic box office.
We all knew that the MCUs latest installment in their Spider-Man franchise was going to be huge, we just had no idea how huge, and it appears as though the film has continued to exceed every expectation set upon it when it was released late last year.
According to The Wrap, after 100 days in movie theaters, the film is now just the third movie ever to read $800 million at the domestic box office, as the film has broken a substantial amount of domestic box office records on route to the esteemed accomplishment.
Spider-Man: No Way Home is clearly the biggest film of the COVID-19 Pandemic Era, with its $1.7 Million earned this past weekend placing it amount Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Avengers: Endgame as the only films to reach the milestone at the American Box Office.
This comes after the iconic entry into the MCU Spider-Man saga collected a phenomenal $260 million during its opening weekend this December; a mark that placed it second among the greatest domestic box office openings to only Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
What is perhaps even more spectacular about this benchmark is that the film’s total earnings in the domestic box office is where it has received the majority of its financial success; with the film not being released in the world’s biggest box office market, China.
Although it has not yet experienced a Chinese release, Spider-Man: No Way Home is still sixth on the all-time box office charts with $1.88 Billion, the highest for any film that didn’t have a release in China.
There are few who could argue with the reality that, had Spider-Man: No Way Home had a Chinese release, it would have easily surpassed the $2 billion mark, for surpassing its $800 million domestic box office earnings.
The film clearly deserves all of the success it has achieved, as it stands as one of the greatest Spider-Man stories ever told on the big screen.
