Spider-Man: No Way Home has been breaking one box office record after another since its release, and its latest might just be the most impressive one yet. After about a month in the theaters, the latest installment in the MCU became the sixth-highest grossing movie of all time.

No Way Home managed to earn $1.69 billion at the worldwide box office, passing Jurassic World with $1.67 billion and The Lion King with $1.66 billion to secure its latest record. It’s highly unlikely it will soar any higher because the top five films—Avatar, Avengers: Endgame, Titanic, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and Avengers: Infinity War—all crossed the $2 billion mark.

We still wouldn’t count No Way Home out since it’s been breaking one box office after another since its release in mid-December. Needless to say, it’s the highest-grossing pandemic-era film, and the first to gross over $1 billion since COVID-19 started. It’s also the fourth-highest-grossing film in the United States and Canada, with $721 million at the domestic box office so far.

No Way Home explores the aftermath of Spider-Man: Far From Home, where Peter Parker’s secret identity was revealed to the world. He asks Doctor Strange to help him reverse the past, but his botched spell ends up opening up the multiverse and inviting old villains into Peter’s world to dire consequences.
