The third and final instalment of British actor, Tom Holland’s Spider-Man trilogy has hit a new milestone for revenue generated. The John Watts directed blockbuster released in theatres on the 17th of December, and has received staggering praise from moviegoers and critics.
Spider-Man: No Way Home in the 10 days it’s been running worldwide has crossed the $1 billion mark, and is now the highest grossing Sony film of all time in the United States, albeit without adjusting for inflation.
It’s $1 billion crossing means it is the first theatrically released film in the COVID-19 era to reach such impressive numbers. Another Marvel release, Avengers: Endgame holds the record for the fastest film to reach the $1 billion mark, after only 5 days of its release. It’s also the highest grossing Marvel film of all time. However, there’s still a lot of time for Spider-Man: No Way Home to try to play catch up.
Commercially, Spider-Man: No Way Home is already a huge success for Marvel and Sony. The billion dollar grossing had pretty much become the standard for their theatrical releases, and factoring in COVID-19, it’s arguable that the film is over-performing.
