The latest Spider-Man film has surpassed $1 billion (£750 million) in the global box office, making it the first pandemic-era film to do so.
In addition, Spider-Man: No Way Home was named the highest-grossing film of the year in 2021.
It triumphed over a Korean War epic created by Chinese filmmakers. The Battle of Lake Changjin has a worldwide gross of nearly $905 million dollars.
According to media data analytics firm Comscore, the most recent film to gross more than $1 billion was Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker in 2019.
Since the pandemic began two years ago, no other Hollywood film has come close to approaching that box office milestone.
The latest Marvel Cinematic Universe picture grossed $1.05 billion at the box office worldwide over the weekend.
According to Comscore, Spider-Man: Far From Home was the first Spider-Man film to exceed the $1 billion mark at the box office, and it is presently the franchise’s highest-grossing picture with $1.132 billion in global ticket sales.
The series is a joint venture between Disney’s Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures Entertainment.
In 2015, Disney, Marvel Studios, and Sony decided to share the cinematic rights to Spider-Man, resulting in the introduction of a new rendition of the character into the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Prior to No Way Home, MGM’s latest James Bond picture, No Time to Die, was the highest-earning Hollywood film of both 2021 and the pandemic, grossing $774 million worldwide.
