The latest Spider-Man film has turned out to be the first pandemic-era film to gross more than $1 billion at the worldwide box office.
In addition, Spider-Man: No Way Home was named the highest-grossing film of 2021.
The revenues garnered by the film were higher than The Battle of Lake Changjin, a Chinese-made Korean War epic that has generated more than $905 million globally.
According to media data analytics firm Comscore, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker was the most recent film to gross more than $1 billion.
Since the pandemic began two years ago, no other Hollywood film has come close to surpassing that box office milestone.
The latest Marvel Cinematic Universe picture grossed $1.05 billion worldwide over the weekend.
Even while the Omicron variant of Covid-19 has proliferated swiftly over the world, generating new worries about indoor activities, the Sony-Disney co-production reached its milestone less than two weeks after its premiere.
China, which is presently the largest cinema market in the world, has not yet seen the film.
Tom Holland reprises his role as Peter Parker in Spider-Man: No Way Home, featuring Zendaya as MJ and Benedict Cumberbatch as the wizard Doctor Strange.
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 sequel to Far From Home, in which the wicked Mysterio exposed Parker before dying, is now out.
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. (Adapted from BBC.com)
