No Way Home Tops Avatar At US Box Office To Become Third Highest Grossing Movie
Spider-Man: No Way Home passes James Cameron’s Avatar, becoming the third highest-grossing movie at the domestic box office with a $760.9M gross.
Spider-Man: No Way Home passes Avatar at the domestic box office to become the third highest-grossing movie of all time. The third entry of Tom Holland’s solo Spider-Man trilogy set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, No Way Home premiered in U.S. theaters December 17. Managing to exceed all expectations that had been set for it. Released amidst the surging Omicron COVID-19 variant. Spider-Man: No Way Home was projected to gross $130 million in its opening weekend. Although it ended up doubling that with a $260 million domestic debut, the second highest of all time behind Avengers: Endgame.
According to Erik Davis, Spider-Man: No Way Home has passed Avatar on the all-time U.S. box office charts. With an estimated $760.9 million gross, that is just enough for No Way Home to beat out Cameron’s blockbuster to become the third highest-grossing movie ever at the domestic box office.
No Way Home‘s incredible box office success continued long past its opening weekend. The MCU movie overtook No Time to Die as the highest-grossing Hollywood movie of the year worldwide. In just 12 days, No Way Home crossed the $1 billion threshold. The only movie of the pandemic era to do so. After about a month in theatres, the Spider-Man movie began surpassing titles like Titanic on the all-time domestic charts. Many thought No Way Home would stay at #4. Surprising development indicates it has leapfrogged yet another James Cameron movie.
