Movie Franchises Spider-Man: Far From Home Has Beaten:
It has been about 1 & a half month since Spider-Man: Far From Home hit the theatres. It came in, bludgeoned the Box Office, became the highest grossing Spider-Man film and is now on its way to be the highest grossing Sony movie ever! As of now, Spider-Man: Far From Home stands at $1.097 Billion. Sure the hype was passed on from Endgame, but Spider-Man deserves the biggest credit.
Obviously, Every Spider-Man Movie Ever!
Sam Raimi’s trilogy has been taken down, The Amazing Spider-Man Duology has been web bombed and MCU’s very own Spider-Man: Homecoming proved to be inferior to the second movie in the solo Spider-Man franchise of Marvel. Here’s how things stand – Box Office: The Amazing Spider-Man ($757.9 Million), The Amazing Spider-Man 2 ($708.9 Million), Spider-Man ($821.7 Million), Spider-Man 2 ($783.6 Million) Spider-Man 3 ($890 Million) and Spider-Man Homecoming ($880 Million). What’s great is that the new animated movie – Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse ($374 Million) was also no match for Spider-Man: Far From Home, and neither was Venom ($855 Million).
Almost the Entire DCEU
Aquaman is the only film that stands ahead of Spider-Man: Far From Home as it managed to make $1.147 Billion. But Far From Home does have a few days left in its earning days (probably a month). So, it could end up making $50 Million more and beat Aquaman. The game is even Steven for now. All other DCEU films have been demolished though – DCEU: Batman V Superman Dawn of Justice ($873 Million), Wonder Woman ($821 Million), Suicide Squad ($745.6 Million), Man of Steel ($668 Million), Justice League ($658 Million) and Shazam! ($362 Million).
The Whole Pirates of the Caribbean Franchise
The Pirates of the Caribbean franchise is clearly not working for Disney anymore. Hence they’re rebooting it. Spider-Man: Far From Home managed to go through all 5 of these films with ease! Box Office: Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl ($634 Million), Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End ($963 Million), and Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales ($794 Million). Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl ($1.06 Billion) and Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides ($1.04 Billion)
All Batman Movies
Spider-Man has finally beaten the greatest DC superhero of all time! It has beaten the 4 Batman movies that came before the 2000s. And it has now taken down the greatest solo Superhero trilogy, i.e. The Dark Knight. Here’s how the films stand at the Box Office:
Batman ($411 Million), Batman Returns ($266 Million), Batman Forever ($336 Million), Batman and Robin ($238 Million), Batman Begins ($374 Million), The Dark Knight ($1.004 Billion), The Dark Knight Rises ($1.084 Billion), Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice ($873 Million), The Lego Batman Movie ($311 Million) & Justice League ($658 Million)
All Harry Potter Movies except the finale.
Box Office: Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone ($974 Million), Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets ($878 Million), Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban ($796 Million), Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire ($896 Million), Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix ($942 Million), Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince ($935 Million), Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I ($960 Million), Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them ($803 Million) and Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald ($653.7 Million). Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part II grossed $1.34 Billion and Spider-Man’s 8 legs won’t be strong enough to beat that.
All the James Bond Movies
Box Office: Dr. No ($59 Million), From Russia With Love ($78 Million), Goldfinger ($124 Million), Thunderball ($141 Million), You Only Live Twice ($111 Million), On Her Majesty’s Secret Service ($82 Million), Diamonds Are Forever ($116 Million), Live and Let Die ($161 Million), The Man with the Golden Gun ($97 Million), The Spy Who Loved Me ($185 Million), Moonraker ($210 Million), For Your Eyes Only ($195 Million), Octopussy ($187 Million), Never Say Never Again ($160 Million), A View to a Kill ($152 Million), The Living Daylights ($191 Million), Licence to Kill ($156 Million), Goldeneye ($356 Million), Tomorrow Never Dies ($339 Million), The World is Not Enough ($361 Million), Die Another Day ($431 Million), Casino Royale ($594 Million), Quantum of Solace ($591 Million) and Spectre ($879 Million).
Spider-Man: Far From Home hasn’t yet gone past Skyfall ($1.11 Billion) officially. Skyfall is Sony’s highest grossing movie and it will be dethroned from the position within a week or so. Far From Home just has to make another $14 Million to do that & it will be a piece of cake.
8/10 Star Wars Movies
Having achieved this feat in itself is a great accomplishment for Sony. They’ve never really seen such heights as even after beating Skyfall, Spider-Man: Far From Home could do so much more. It has taken down almost the entire Star Wars franchise. But obviously, Episode VIII – The Last Jedi ($1.316 Billion) and Episode VII – The Force Awakens ($2.068 Billion) are way too far from the reach of Spider-Man.
Here’s every other Star Wars film the Sony Man has beaten:
Box Office – Solo: A Star Wars Story ($393 Million), Star Wars Ep. V: The Empire Strikes Back ($534 Million), Star Wars Ep. VI: Return of the Jedi ($572 Million), Star Wars Ep. II: Attack of the Clones ($656 Million), Star Wars Ep. IV: A New Hope ($786 Million), Star Wars Ep. III: Revenge of the Sith ($848 Million), Star Wars Ep. I: The Phantom Menace ($1.027 Billion) and Rogue One – A Star Wars Story ($1.049 Billion).
The Transformers Franchise
Box Office – Transformers ($708 Million), Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen ($836 Million), Transformers: The Last Knight ($603 Million) and Bumblebee ($466 Million). Spider-Man: Far From Home is in a similar situation with Transformers: Dark of the Moon ($1.12 Billion), Transformers: Age of Extinction ($1.1 Billion) as it is with Skyfall. So, we’ve already declared it a winner against the entire transformers franchise.
Spider-Man: Far From Home will probably not be able to beat the entire Fast & Furious franchise, but having a 7/9 record is a mighty fine effort. Here are the films that have been beaten already – Box Office: The Fast and the Furious ($206 Million), 2 Fast 2 Furious ($236 Million), The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift ($157 Million), Fast & Furious ($363 Million), Fast and Furious 6 ($789 Million) & Fast & Furious: Hobbs & Shaw ($334 Million).
The Fate of the Furious ($1.23 Billion) and Furious 7 ($1.5 Billion) will remain unbeaten because Spider-Man: Far From Home will not be rising higher than these.
The Entire X-Men Franchise
The X-Men franchise just marked its death with X-Men: Dark Phoenix, but it actually met its demise as soon as Disney bought Fox. People weren’t going to care about X-Men movies anymore because they know that these properties will join the MCU. So, here are all the losers from Fox – X-Men ($296.3 Million), X2 ($407.7 Million), X-Men: The Last Stand ($459.3 Million), X-Men Origins: Wolverine ($373.0 Million), X-Men: First Class ($353.6 Million), The Wolverine ($414.8 Million), X-Men: Days of Future Past ($747.8 Million), X-Men: Apocalypse ($543.9 Million), Deadpool ($783.1 Million) and Logan ($616.8 Million).
Bonus – All These MCU Films
Box Office: The Incredible Hulk ($263.4 Million), Captain America: The First Avenger ($370.5 Million), Thor ($449.3 Million), Ant-Man ($519.3 Million), Iron Man ($585.1 Million), Iron Man 2 ($623.9 Million), Thor: The Dark World ($644.5 Million), Doctor Strange ($677.7 Million), Captain America: The Winter Soldier ($714.2 Million), Guardians of the Galaxy ($773.3 Million), Thor: Ragnarok ($850 Million), Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 ($863 Million) and Spider-Man Homecoming ($880 Million).
Spider-Man: Far From Home will surely take down Captain Marvel ($1.128 Billion) in the coming days, but it won’t be beating the rest – Captain America: Civil War ($1.15 Billion), Iron Man 3 ($1.21 Billion), Black Panther ($1.3 Billion), Avengers: Age of Ultron ($1.4 Billion), The Avengers ($1.5 Billion) and Avengers: Infinity War ($2.048 Billion).
