Spider-Man: No Way Home movie becomes first pandemic-era to top $1billion

Spider-Man: No Way Home also took the highest-grossing film of 2021.

It beat out the Chinese-made Korean War epic The Battle of Lake Changjin, which has grossed more than $905m worldwide.

According to media data analytics firm Comscore, the last movie to gross more than $1bn was 2019's Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.

No other Hollywood production house has come near to reaching that box office achievement since the pandemic began two years ago.

Over the weekend, a global box office takings for the latest Marvel Cinematic Universe film reached $1.05bn.

The co-production between Disney and Sony has hit its milestone less than two weeks after its premiere, even as the new Omicron variant of Covid-19 has spread quickly worldwide, increasing fresh concerns about the indoor incident.

Spider-Man: No Way Home film has not yet been released in China, currently the world's biggest cinema market.

Spider-Man: No Way Home sees Tom Holland returns as the third repetition of Peter Parker beside Zendaya's MJ and Benedict Cumberbatch as the warlock Doctor Strange.

The franchise 2019 offering Spider-Man: Far From Home was the first Spider-Man film to touch the $1billion mark at the box office and is currently the highest-grossing movie in the franchise with $1.132bn in global ticket sales, according to Comscore.

The latest film follows on from Far From Home movie, in which the evil Mysterio unmasked Parker before death.

The series is a collaboration between Disney's Marvel Studios and Sony.

In 2015, Disney, Marvel Studios, and Sony agreed to share the film rights for Spider-Man, which led to a new iteration of the character being introduced and integrated into the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Before No Way Home, MGM's latest James Bond movie, No Time to Die, which made $774m at the box office globally, was the highest-grossing Hollywood film of both 2021 and the pandemic.
