Spider-Man: No Way Home is now Sony Pictures’ highest-grossing film.
The brass at Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios must be crying tears of joy. Spider-Man: No Way Home broke the billion-dollar barrier earlier this week, being the first film since 2019 to do so. Since the pandemic began, the box office has suffered considerably but it looks like those worries are a thing of the past. Now, the highest-grossing film of the year has broken another record for Sony Pictures.
With the Spidey threequel’s current global cume at $1.16 billion, the film is now Sony Pictures’ highest-grossing film of all time. The previous record-holder was Spider-Man: Far From Home, which brought in $1.13 billion back in 2019. What’s even more exciting is that Spider-Man: No Way Home has a long way to go at the box office, as the film hasn’t opened in numerous territories, including China.
As of now, the film has brought in $516.4 million domestically and $644.9 million internationally. The film has only been out for 12 days stateside. The hype for the film seems to have no end as fans are returning to cinemas numerous times to catch the film’s legacy cameos again and again. It’s unclear when things will slow down but it’s safe to say that both Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures have an unprecedented hit on their hand.
Here is the synopsis for Marvel Studios’ Spider-Man No Way Home:
“For the first time in the cinematic history of Spider-Man, our friendly neighborhood hero’s identity is revealed, bringing his Super Hero responsibilities into conflict with his normal life and putting those he cares about most at risk. When he enlists Doctor Strange’s help to restore his secret, the spell tears a hole in their world, releasing the most powerful villains who’ve ever fought a Spider-Man in any universe. Now, Peter will have to overcome his greatest challenge yet, which will not only forever alter his own future but the future of the Multiverse.”
Directed by Jon Watts from a script written by Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers, Marvel’s No Way Home stars Tom Holland, Zendaya, Jacob Batalon, Tony Revolori, Martin Starr, J.B. Smoove, Marisa Tomei, Jon Favreau, Benedict Wong, Benedict Cumberbatch, Willem Dafoe, Alfred Molina, and Jamie Foxx, with Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire.
