“Spider-Man: No Way Home” tops “Avatar,” becomes 3rd-biggest movie ever in N. America

On Tuesday, “Spider-Man: No Way Home” has finally taken down the 2009 science fiction epic of James Cameron, “Avatar,” becoming the third-largest movie ever in the history of domestic box office in North America.

In point of fact, latest development on a neck-to-neck wrangle between “Avatar” and “Spider-Man: No Way Home” comes over the heels of weeks of speculation on whether a new Spider-Man, “Tom Holland,” has enough legs to top the James Cameroon sci-fi legend, though, on Monday, the Spidey has collected a remaining $1 million to unseat “Avatar” and lifted its mighty tally of grossing in the domestic box office above $760.5 million.

So far, as of Tuesday night, the Sony Picture’s latest Spider-Man blockbuster had accumulated a whopping $760.9 million in domestic box office, while the ticket sales have been as many as three-fold of the second-highest grossing movie released in a pandemic era new normalcy.

Disney and Marvel’s “Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings” had raised $224 million in N. American box office last year.

In the matter of the fact, despite the Spidey’s immense popularity alongside a higher ticket price, the latest weaver of Sony might not be able to raise an additional $100 million required to top the “Avenger: End Game,” which has been at the second position with an $858 million grossing in the box office.

Meanwhile, addressing to higher ticket prices of “Spider-Man: No Way Home,” a senior media analyst, Paul Dergarabedian said, “Though ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’ benefits from a much higher average ticket price than ‘Avatar,’ this does not detract from the enormity of this achievement coming during a pandemic-impacted marketplace It would have been unimaginable just a few months ago to think that the latest ‘Spider-Man’ film would even have a shot a leapfrogging over ‘Avatar,’ which has been a mainstay on box office Mt. Olympus for over a decade”.
