“No Way Home” Becomes 12th Highest Grossing Film Of All Time


Spider-Man: No Way Home just keeps on making a big impact at the box office. Not only is it the first film to break $1 Billion at the box office since 2019, but has now become the 12th highest grossing film of all time at the worldwide box office. The film is currently at $1.37 Billion worldwide and just passed Black Panther‘s $1.34 Billion, kicking Iron Man 3 off the list completely, and it looks like it may eventually break into the top 10, pending its eventual release in China.

12 – Spider-Man: No Way Home (2021) $1.37 Billion
11 – Avengers: Age of Ultron (2017) $1.40 Billion
10 – Frozen II (2019) $1.45 Billion
9 – The Avengers (2012) $1.51 Billion
8 – Furious 7 (2015) $1.52 Billion
7 – The Lion King (2019) $1.65 Billion
6 – Jurassic World (2015) $1.67 Billion
5 – Avengers: Infinity War (2018) $2.05 Billion
4 – Star Wars: The Force Awakens (2015) $2.06 Billion
3 – Titanic (1997) $2.21 Billion
2 – Avengers: Endgame (2019) $2.80 Billion
1 – Avatar (2009) $2.85 Billion

The film is a massive success in the post Covid-19 world, becoming SONY’s biggest film in company history. Who knows, if the film released in pre-pandemic conditions it might make even more money more quickly. Perhaps some of the success can be attributed to being exclusively in theaters.

The continued success of the brand is definitely making it more enticing for SONY to just break away from Marvel & Disney and just do their spin-off Spider-Man films without being held back by the strict guidelines of Keven Feige and the MCU. SONY wouldn’t need to share their profit with anybody else either. All they would need to do is keep up the good will with the fans and give them what they want. 

Hopefully studios will take note and realize that  giving audiences what they want is currently the best way to encourage fans to see a film. If the box office results of last year are any indication, fans will spend money when it’s a film with popular characters and a great story.
