Spider-Man: No Way Home has crossed $1 billion dollar in earnings to become the first movie to hit the exclusive milestone in the Covid-19 pandemic Era.
It makes the Marvel superhero adventure the only movie since 2019’s “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker” to surpass $1 billion globally.
Prior to Spider-Man’s reign, MGM’s James Bond sequel “No Time to Die,” which grossed $774 million globally, stood as the highest-grossing Hollywood film of 2021 (and the pandemic).
The movie shattered the box-office in its December opening weekend making an estimated $600 million dollars worldwide.
It was beaten only by Avengers: Infinity War, which earned 640 million dollars worldwide, and Avengers: Endgame which earned $1.2 billion dollars.
The film cost $200 million dollars to make, and made $1.05 billion dollars in just 12 days as of Sunday.
The Marvel and Sony title stars Brit Tom Holland, who made it a hat-trick of Spider-Man productions, following previous films Spider-Man: Homecoming and Spider-Man: Far From Home.
The actor from Kingston upon Thames in the UK starred in the film alongside girlfriend Zendaya. Jamie Foxx, Willem Dafoe and Alfred Molina also made appearances in Marvel’s latest blockbuster.
