This time last week I published a post highlighting the success of Venom at the worldwide box office. At the time of posting, Venom had accumulated $780,006,808 in box office receipts and was Sony Pictures’ fifth most successful Spider-Man movie (even though it doesn’t feature Spider-Man).

A week on and things have changed.

As of today, Venom has now taken $823,035,950 at the worldwide box office. Not only has this pushed the movie further up the Sony/Spider-Man chart, but it also means that Venom is now financially more successful than 2002’s Spider-Man.

Here is an updated list of each Spider-Man movie ranked in order of box office success:

  • Spider-Man 3 (2007) – $890,871,626
  • Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017) – $880,166,924
  • Venom (2018) – $823,035,950
  • Spider-Man (2002) – $821,708,551
  • Spider-Man 2 (2004) – $783,766,341
  • The Amazing Spider-Man (2012) – $757,930,663
  • The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014) – $708,982,323

As you can see, in the space of a week Venom has surpassed both Spider-Man 2 (2004) and Spider-Man to become Sony’s third most successful Spidey-related movie. The film sits behind the Tom Holland-starring Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017) and the Tobey Maguire-led Spider-Man 3 (2007) – which also featured Venom.

Does Venom have the legs to slip past the top two? Only time will tell.
