The new Spider-Man film No Way Home has so far grossed 668 million dollars (about 588 million euros) in the United States and is therefore in sixth place on the list of the highest-grossing films ever, American media report. It surpasses Titanic ($659 million) and Jurassic World ($652 million).
There is a good chance that the film will soon reach number five on the list of the highest-grossing films ever. That spot now belongs to Avengers: Infinity War, which brought in $678 million.
Spider-Man: No Way Home, starring Tom Holland, has been in cinemas since December 17 and was previously declared the most successful cinema title of 2021. Within eleven days, the film grossed more than 1 billion dollars worldwide.
In Spider-Man: No Way Home, the title hero struggles with everyone knowing his secret identity. He approaches Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) to change the situation. But as always in these kinds of movies, every action has consequences.
The film also seemed to break all records in the Netherlands, until the outgoing cabinet announced the new lockdown. In principle, cinemas should open again in mid-January, although the film world fears that the lockdown – just like last year – will last longer than a few weeks.
