Spider-Man: No Way Home Box Office Swings to $1.37 Billion, Sony’s Biggest Movie Ever

Spider-Man: No Way Home is now the 12th highest-grossing movie of all time, having taken its worldwide box office total to $1.37 billion (about Rs. 10,194 crore) following a sizeable New Year’s weekend. In doing so, the new Spider-Man movie has also become Sony Pictures’ biggest movie ever, surpassing its direct predecessor Spider-Man: Far From Home at $1.131 billion (about Rs. 8,416 crore). In India, it’s the third biggest Hollywood film of all time. Crucially, and unlike most films on the highest-grossing list, Spider-Man: No Way Home has achieved the status — in the third weekend of its release — without the help of China, where the new Spider-Man movie has yet to be given a release date.

During the New Year’s weekend, Spider-Man: No Way Home added another $131 million (about Rs. 974 crore) to its global box collection — $52.7 million (about Rs. 392 crore) came from cinemas in the US and Canada and the remaining $78.3 million (about Rs. 582 crore) from theatres in 61 other markets around the world. That is one of the best third-weekend ever for a movie in North America; and thanks to this weekend’s numbers, Spider-Man: No Way Home has crossed the $600-million mark. It’s closer to $610 million (about Rs. 4,540 crore) as of now, making it the tenth biggest movie of all time in the US.
