Spider-Man: No Way Home is still raking in the cash three months after its release at the box office. In fact, it’s feasible that Spider-Man: No Way Home may become only the third movie in history to gross over $800 million at the US box office. The Tom Holland movie has now generated $797.76 million domestically, which means it will only take a few more weekends to cross the renowned $1.8 billion mark.
Back in December, merely ten days after its release, the movie raked in millions and broke records. If you’re not familiar with “No Way Home,” it is the last film of Phase Four of the Marvel Cinematics Universe and a sequel to Spider-Man: Homecoming. This movie was directed by Jon Watts based upon a script by Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers.
Spider-Man: No Way Home Passes $800 Million Mark In the Box Office
As of March 21, 2022, this movie managed to rake in way over $707 million in the United States and Canada. And in the rest of the world, the movie raked in over a billion dollars. That makes it the sixth highest-grossing movie of all time. And it earned the bronze medal on the podium for the highest-grossing movies in the United States and Canada. Also, these are good times for the movie industry, despite the covid pandemic that slashed income and production for everybody and everyone in the industry.
To put things into perspective, “No Way Home” earned more than a quarter of a billion dollars during its opening weekend. And that means that the record held by Avengers: Infinity is now a thing of the past. Moreover, this Spider-Man movie stayed on the top of the box office for a whole month! Now, nearly three months after its release, the movie continues to rake in profits for the filmmakers. And in no time, Spider-Man: No Way Home will pass the $800 million thresholds.
Tom Holland Excited About The Record
When asked about the recent record-breaking mark by the movie, Actor Tom Holland expressed his excitement by saying that it’d be great if the movie got an Academy Award, but that’s not how they like to validate themselves. For Holland and the film’s crew, the best validation comes from the fans. And according to him, that validation comes from the love they receive and that it’s been “through the roof”. Holland is happy with his portrayal of the character and what he’s achieved doing with the movie.

Measuring Up With Chinese Cinema
No Way Home is the only movie that, despite not airing in China, managed to measure well against the highest-grossing Chinese movies of all time. These are “Hi, Mom” with $882 million and “The Battle at Lake Changjin” with $902 million. But if No Way Home continues to rake in the cash as it is doing it. Those records will likely be shattered. Bear in mind this, as we stated earlier, the movie isn’t available in China, so even without that billion-dollar market, just the fact that the movie is there is impressive.
Tom Holland plays Peter Parker, Zendaya Coleman plays Michelle Jones-Watson, Benedict Cumberbatch plays Dr. Stephen Strange, and Jacob Batalon plays Ned Leeds. Jon Favreau plays Harold Hogan, Jamie Foxx plays Electro, Willem Dafoe plays The Green Goblin, Alfred Molina plays Doctor Octopus, Benedict Wong plays Wong, and Marisa Tomei plays May Parker.
The plot for Spider-Man: No Way Home, coupled with its great ensemble cast, is one of its main hooks. Peter Parker (played by Tom Holland) requests Dr. Strange (played by Benedict Cumberbatch) to cast a spell to make his identity a secret again after he was outed as Spider-Man. So, Strange goes ahead and does him a favor. But the spell goes awry. And it ends up opening an interdimensional portal that allows visitors from many realities to enter Peter Parker’s Universe. With this, we conclude our coverage of Spider-Man’s record-breaking streak at the box office here at Otakukart.
