Spider-Man: No away Home crosses $1 billion milestone worldwide
Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios won’t need any gift receipts or store credit the day after Christmas as they’re pretty content with Spider-Man: No Way Home.
The third installment of the Tom Holland series hasn’t needed a long box office stint to become the highest grossing 2021 domestic film — overtaking Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings ($224 million) in its opening weekend.
No Way Home has now earned $478 million in just 10 days domestically.
With an amazing $95 million haul on Christmas weekend, No Way Home becomes the first film to hit the $1 billion mark since Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.
No Way Home easily held off two newcomers looking to provide alternative entertainment options for moviegoers.
Sing 2 looks to take center stage with $42.8 million while The Matrix Resurrections claims the third spot with $41 million.
Resurrections’ performance is notable as the film is also available now on HBO Max. Without the Omnicron variant causing a spike in COVID-19 numbers, some audiences likely appreciated avoiding theaters altogether to check out the latest installment.
In fourth place was The Kingsman prequel, The King’s Man with about $20 million through the extended Christmas box office period.
Stephen Spielberg’s West Side Story remake is still facing an uphill battle to attract audiences as it’s earned $21.6 million in its first two weeks.
