Spider-Man: No Way Home has out-grossed The Dark Knight and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story at the domestic box office.
Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios are laughing their way to the bank. Their third Spider-Man effort is breaking records left and right with ease. Spider-Man: No Way Home became Sony Pictures’ highest-grossing film of all time earlier this week and it looks like its got a long way to go at both the domestic and global box office. Stateside, the Spidey threequel has outgrossed Christopher Nolan’s seminal The Dark Knight and Lucasfilm’s explosive Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.
Both genre films made record-setting splashes when they first debuted but it looks like Spider-Man’s got them beat. The threequel has made over $536.6M stateside in just thirteen days. This places the film ahead of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, whose domestic cume stands at $532.1M domestically. DC’s bonafide hit managed to rack up $534.8M back in 2008, but it’s no match for No Way Home‘s unprecedented run.
Pundits currently have their eyes set on the next films Spider-Man: No Way Home could swing past. The film will soon outgross the live-action remake of The Lion King‘s impressive $543.6M. It remains to be seen if the Tom Holland film will be able to usurp domestic box office champion Star Wars: The Force Awakens, whose stateside gross stands at $936M.
Here is the synopsis for Marvel Studios’ Spider-Man No Way Home:
“For the first time in the cinematic history of Spider-Man, our friendly neighborhood hero’s identity is revealed, bringing his Super Hero responsibilities into conflict with his normal life and putting those he cares about most at risk. When he enlists Doctor Strange’s help to restore his secret, the spell tears a hole in their world, releasing the most powerful villains who’ve ever fought a Spider-Man in any universe. Now, Peter will have to overcome his greatest challenge yet, which will not only forever alter his own future but the future of the Multiverse.”
