Spider-Man: Far From Home Tops Captain Marvel to Become the Third Highest-Grossing Film of 2019

2019 has been a wildly successful year for superhero films with Avengers: Endgame beating Avatar to become the top-grossing film of all time. Captain Marvel held the number three spot for a while but was just surpassed by Spider-Man: Far From Home. The only film standing in-between it and Avengers: Endgame on the 2019 list is Disney’s remake of The Lion King. In addition to being a top 2019 earner, Spider-Man: Far From Home is now the 8th highest-grossing film the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Sadly, with Disney and Sony’s inability to reach an agreement over the character, Far From Home will likely be the last Spider-Man movie that will be counted on the MCU box office list.

As of today, Spider-Man: Far From Home earned $1,128,276,196 worldwide and $389,199,554 domestically. Captain Marvel isn't far behind with $1,128,274,794 worldwide. However, it’s still ahead in domestic sales, having earned $426,829,839. Of course, neither came close to Avengers: Endgame, which earned $858,373,000 domestically and $2,796,274,401 worldwide. The second-place earner, The Lion King, has made $533,992,775 domestically and $1,616,992,775 worldwide.

So far, the fourth-place earner of 2019 is Toy Story 4 ($432,395,259 domestic, $$1,057,895,259 worldwide), with Aladdin at number five ($355,088,567 domestic, $1,046,920,888 worldwide), and Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw ($168,317,320 domestic, $740,917,320 worldwide) in sixth place. That being said, there’s still more than there months left of the year with some huge releases still on the way.
