Spider-Man: No Way Home passes Avatar to become the third highest-grossing domestic movie of all time

By Stephen Ippolito | February 15th, 2022

Nearly two months after its release, Spider-Man: No Way Home is still achieving milestones at the box office. After bringing in $1M on Monday, the Sony and Marvel Studios film officially passed Avatar ($760.5M) to become the third highest-grossing movie of all-time in North America with $761M.

Unfortunately, this will be the furthest the Tom Holland-led film will climb on the charts as the top 2 movies, Avengers: Endgame ($858 million) and Star Wars: The Force Awakens ($936 million), are too far ahead for it to catch it.

Globally, it has brought in a massive total of $1.807B, which is good enough for sixth place all-time. What’s most impressive about this particular feat is that it did it without getting a release in China, arguably the world’s biggest market. Had it gotten one, I imagine its total would have been somewhere in the neighborhood of $2.1B-$2.3B, which would have been good enough for third or fourth all time.

The film has obviously been very profitable for both Sony and Disney. Back in December, it was reported by Deadline that if the film made $1.75B globally, then the combined net profit for both studios would be at least $610M (Sony’s cut $458M, Disney’s $152.5M). As for how much Holland was paid for the role, it was reported that he received around $10M.
