‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’ passes $1B mark at the international box office… as the superhero movie earns more than $1.74B worldwide


Spider-Man: No Way Home passed the $1 billion mark at the international box office over the weekend, as the Sony/Marvel film has made more than $1.74 billion at the global box office.

The blockbuster is the 10th film in history to achieve the milestone, Deadline reported, after taking in $21.1 million over the weekend in global markets.

The superhero movie is the sixth-highest grossing film all-time on a global level, and has not yet received a release date in China, making its international totals more impressive.

The film, which stars Tom Holland and is directed by Jon Watts, took in $11 million in domestic totals in its seventh week of release, bringing its total domestic intake up to $735.9 million, according to the outlet.

Spider-Man: No Way Home, which has been the top-earning movie for six of its past seven weekends, is moving toward Avatar’s mark of $760 million at the domestic box office, which is the third-highest domestic grossing film of all-time.

The film prevailed in a sluggish weekend at the domestic box office due to a blizzard in the Northeast and surging numbers of the coronavirus omicron variant.

Scream came in second with $7.4 million, while Sing 2 finished in third with $4.8 million. Redeeming Love made $1.9 million for fourth place, and The King’s Man took in $1.8 million for fifth place.

Rounding out the top 10 included The 355 ($1.4 million), American Underdog ($1.2 million), Ghostbusters: Afterlife ($770,000), Licorice Pizza ($691,000) and West Side Story ($614,000).

Movies slated to hit theaters next week include comedy Jackass Forever and the Halle Berry action film Moonfall.

Other tentpole films slated for release later in the year include Jurassic World: Dominion, The Batman and Top Gun: Maverick.
