After four weeks in theaters, Spider-Man: No Way Home has become the eighth highest grossing global movie of all time.
Spider-Man: No Way Home spent its fourth weekend on top of the box office after bringing in $33 million. As of this writing, the sequel is now the eighth highest grossing global movie of all time with over $1.5 billion in ticket sales. Domestically, Spider-Man: No Way Home is the sixth highest grossing movie of all time, nudging out James Cameron’s Titanic and setting its sights on fellow Marvel Cinematic Universe movie Avengers: Infinity War. Many box office analysts did not see Peter Parker’s latest adventure topping over $30 million in its fourth weekend in theaters.
Spider-Man: No Way Home is, without a doubt, the highest grossing movie of the pandemic era. After nearly two years, the box office is starting to rebound, though as to how long this will last is anyone’s guess. Whatever the case may be, MCU fans have been coming back into theaters to see Tom Holland’s Spider-Man, along with some help from unexpected places. Even though nearly everything was spoiled well before the movie hit theaters, thanks to internet sleuths and leaked set images. Sony finally has the Marvel hit that they have been waiting decades for.
Sing 2 was able to keep the second position this weekend with $11.9 million. The animated family sequel has earned over $190 million globally since debuting in theaters three weeks ago.

The movie stars Jessica Chastain, Penélope Cruz, Fan Bingbing, Diane Kruger, and Lupita Nyong’o. The King’s Man took the fourth position with $3.2 million.
