“Spider-Man: There’s no way home“As a box office hitter, it’s impossible not to catch.
Comics Adventures, starring Tom Holland, Marvel’s favorite web-slinger curator, hits theaters in December and runs every weekend except one The film is at the top of the box office in the country. This weekend is no exception. Now in its seventh weekend release, “No Way Home” has once again secured the No. 1 spot among film holders, including “Screaming‘ and ‘Sing 2,’ ended a particularly quiet January when it comes to movies.
Over the weekend, Sony’s superhero sequel grossed $11 million from 3,675 theaters in North America, down 17% from its previous debut. That ticket sales took Spidey’s latest hit $735 million at the box office, maintaining its position as the fourth-highest-grossing domestic release in history.
Right now, “No Way Home” has grossed just $25 million compared with “Avatar” ($760 million) as the third-biggest movie ever (not adjusted for inflation). For any other movie release during the pandemic, raising an additional $25 million in ticket sales would be a high – if not insurmountable – hurdle since the film is already available in theaters. cinema for almost two months.

To take the No. 1 and 2 spots in North America, “Avengers: Endgame” ($858 million) and “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” ($936 million), didn’t require a miracle. But, hey, third place isn’t too bad considering state of the world.
At the international box office, “Spider-Man: No Way Home” became one of the films selected to pass the $1 billion mark. Even more impressive, it passed that milestone without screening in China, the world’s largest film market. With $1.74 billion globally, “No Way Home” ranks as the sixth highest-grossing film of all time at the worldwide box office.
