Spider-Man: No Way Home has proved to be a massive hit since it was released on December 17th, 2021. While it’s no surprise that the superhero film is raking in big bucks, it is a good sign for movies, which have often seen floundering returns during the pandemic. Even with the Omicron surge during No Way Home’s roll-out, the movie—a joint effort from Sony and Marvel Studios—is now the third highest-grossing movie of all time at the domestic box office. Only Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Avengers: Endgame have a higher domestic haul. No Way Home is the sixth highest-grossing film of all time when international box office figures are factored in. It was a hit with critics as well, earning a 93% freshness rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

The third Spider-Man movie to star Tom Holland, No Way Home thrilled audiences by teaming Peter Parker with “multiversal” versions of himself—namely, Tobey Maguire, who originated the character onscreen in the Sam Raimi trio of Spider-Man movies, and Andrew Garfield, who played Peter in The Amazing Spider-Man and its sequel. In addition to the return of Maguire and Garfield, No Way Home featured some of these Spider-Men’s most fearsome and memorable foes, like Willem Dafoe as the Green Goblin, Alfred Molina as Doc Ock, Jamie Foxx as Electro, and Thomas Haden Chruch as the Sandman. No Way Home also starred Zendaya as Peter’s brilliant girlfriend MJ, Jacob Batalon as his supportive best friend Ned, and Marisa Tomei as his steely Aunt May, while Benedict Cumberbatch and Benedict Wong dropped by to play their MCU characters Doctor Strange and the new Sorcerer Supreme, Wong.

How much did No Way Home make?

No Way Home has yet to be made available on streaming or DVD yet. Even so, its box office stands at an astonishing $771,440,686 domestically, according to Box office Mojo. Its worldwide gross is an eye-watering $1,831,440,686. Yes, you read that right, No Way Home has earned nearly two billion dollars at the box office! The only films that have earned more than its stunning sum internationally are Avatar, Engdame, Titantic, The Force Awakens, and Infinity War. That means three of the top six highest-grossing movies of all time are based on Marvel superheroes. (And all of those superhero movies have starred Tom Holland!)

Spider-Man: No Way Home is an exciting and moving film to watch, and it’s a delight for fans of all the cinematic Spider-Men. Maguire and Garfield both turn in compelling, funny, and touching performances as Peters who have seen a bit too much in their time. All of the “resurrected” villains play a vital role, while Dafoe and Molina steal every single scene they’re in. Chockfull of equal parts action, nostalgia, and heart, No Way Home’s huge success is warranted.
