Marvel blockbusteris now the third-highest-grossing movie at the domestic box office, unseating James Cameron's Avatar, Sony said Tuesday.
The superhero flick now stands at $760.9 million domestically, according to Sony. Avatar earned about $749.7 million domestically during its original release and about $10.7 million from a 2010 rerelease, adding up to approximately $760.5 million, according to Box Office Mojo.
Avatar is still the champ at the global box office, bringing in $2.78 billion worldwide with both those releases. Spider-Man: No Way Home sits at more than $1.8 billion globally, which is still a major feat during the pandemic, when moviegoers have been less inclined to sit in packed theaters. (It's currently theto hit $1 billion globally.)
Spider-Man: No Way Home, the third film to star Tom Holland as Spidey, landed in theaters last December. Jam-packed with memorable cameos and a whole host of enemies for Spider-Man to square up against, the film offered plenty to please Marvel fans. It also received generally favorable reviews from critics, and currently has a Metacritic score of 71.
