10 Spies In Disguise (2019) - $171,616,764
Available To Rent On Apple TV
Spies in Disguise is a 2019 animated film depicting a secret agent, played by Will Smith, who is turned into a bird for a mission by a boy genius, voiced by Tom Holland. The film boasted a star-studded cast that included Karen Gillan, Rashida Jones, and Reba McEntire.
Despite mostly positive reviews from critics, Spies in Disguise only barely outearned its lofty budget (via Box Office Mojo). Because of the film's failure to make a major profit, any hope for a sequel or spinoff was quickly dashed, though its cast, including Holland, seemed untouched by its disappointing performance.
9 The Impossible (2012) - $198,087,212
Available On HBO Max
The Impossible is a 2012 disaster film based on the true story of a family that barely survived the events of the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami. Tom Holland makes his feature film debut in the film at the age of 14, playing the character of Lucas.
The Impossible proved to be a major success at the box office, making more than four times its budget of $45 million (via Box Office Mojo). The film was greatly aided by its own marketing, which promised a death-defying and emotional tale of triumph in the wake of disaster. This early success would prove quite formative for Holland's career, starting the actor off on a good foot in the film industry.
8 Dolittle (2020) - $245,462,594
Available On Amazon Prime Video
Dolittle acts as the first film starring Robert Downey Jr. following his exit from the Marvel Cinematic Universe the year prior. In the film, Tom Holland voices the character of Jip, a glasses-wearing dog who, along with his other animal friends, can speak exclusively to the titular character.
Though Dolittle had plenty of goodwill thanks to its cast, the film ultimately failed to make a major dent at the box office (via Box Office Mojo). The film's misfortunes were most likely due to rising fears posed by the looming COVID-19 pandemic and vastly negative reviews from critics.
7 Uncharted (2022) - $401,748,820
Available On Netflix
Uncharted is the live-action film adaptation of the adventure video game series of the same name. In the film, Tom Holland portrays treasure hunter Nathan Drake, Uncharted's best character, in his early adventures. Joining a cast that includes Mark Wahlberg and Antonion Banderas, Holland carved out yet another leading role for himself in this video game adaptation.
Uncharted was a massive success for Sony and for Holland, garnering over $400 million at the global box office (via Box Office Mojo). This was somewhat of a surprise to many fans given the intense backlash that Holland's casting had caused. It may be that fan outrage had merely stoked the flames of curiosity for general audiences, making Uncharted one of 2022's biggest hits so far.
6 Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017) - $880,166,924
Available On Starz
Spider-Man: Homecoming acted as the first solo outing for Tom Holland's Spider-Man, adapting several elements from the Spider-Man comics perfectly. The film saw Peter Parker learning how to be a superhero from Tony Stark, leading to a relentless battle with Michael Keaton's Vulture.
Though Homecoming was one of the higher-grossing films in the MCU, it failed to reach the box office numbers of certain other films starring the web-slinger, namely Spider-Man 3 (via Box Office Mojo). However, the mostly positive fan reactions to the film led to higher returns for both of Homecoming's sequels.
5 Spider-Man: Far From Home (2019) - $1,131,927,996
Available On Starz
Spider-Man: Far From Home was the first Marvel film released in the wake of Avengers: Endgame, which was a massive paradigm shift for the franchise. In the sequel to Homecoming, Tom Holland returns to battle Jake Gyllenhaal's Mysterio during his class trip to Europe.
Far From Home became not only the highest-grossing Spider-Man film to date at the time of its release but also Sony's most profitable film ever (via Box Office Mojo). Fans were certainly excited to see the return of Holland's superhero, as well as to see what fallout would be depicted from Endgame's emotional finale.
4 Captain America: Civil War (2016) - $1,153,337,496
Available On Disney+
Captain America: Civil War marks Tom Holland's MCU debut as he brings to life one of the best live-action versions of Spider-Man yet. Though only featured in a few minutes of the film, Holland's superhero quickly became a favorite among MCU fans.
With most of the cast of the Avengers films returning, Civil War was destined to be a hit. However, the film was greatly aided by the revelation that both Spider-Man and Black Panther, played by Chadwick Boseman, would be appearing in the film. The excitement that followed this film led Civil War to make over $1 billion at the global box office (via Box Office Mojo).
3 Spider-Man: No Way Home (2021) - $1,901,232,550
Available On Starz
Spider-Man: No Way Home is the final film in Tom Holland's first trilogy set within the MCU. The sequel sees the titular character cope with his identity being leaked to the world by Mysterio in the previous film, leading him to get hope in the form of his two multiversal variants, played by Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield.
No Way Home was immensely successful, even in a post-pandemic market, coming tantalizingly close to breaking the $2 billion milestone (via Box Office Mojo). While fans certainly turned up to see yet another depiction of Holland's Spider-Man, the relentless fan theories regarding Maguire and Garfield's involvement in the film made the movie a surefire success, leading to No Way Home being labeled as one of the greatest superhero films of all time.
