Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios executives must be having a particularly joyous holiday, as their latest Spider-Man film, Spider-Man: No Way Home, has managed to earn over $1 billion at the global box office.

As noted by entertainment outlets such as Deadline, this is a tremendous feat, being that the industry remains affected by the ongoing pandemic, which has prompted even some of the biggest superhero fans to stay home. What’s also notable is that Spider-Man: No Way Home managed to make $1 billion globally in just 12 days, making it the third-fastest ever to do so behind Avengers: Endgame (five days) and Avengers: Infinity War (11 days).

“The amazingly-reviewed Tom Holland/Zendaya/Benedict Cumberbatch-starrer added $121.4M at the international box office this weekend, including $3.5M from new opener Thailand,” Deadline noted. “This lifts the offshore cume in 61 overseas markets to $587.1M for the No. 5 spot of the year overseas. The drop over the Christmas frame was 57%, and there’s plenty of runway ahead globally, along with Japan which releases on January 7. The domestic cume is $467.3M.”

No Way Home is tracking ahead of Spider-Man: Far From Home by 51% and Spider-Man: Homecoming by 99% for the same group of markets at current exchange rates.”

Spider-Man: No Way Home’s stunning box office performance can largely be owed to its exciting cast, which includes an assortment of modern heroes, old favorites, and past villains. Marvel Studios’ next major hit will likely be Sam Raimi’s Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, which is set to premiere on May 6, 2022.

  1. Huh, I guess people [I]are[/I] going to the movie theaters in the COVID-19 era, surprisingly.

    Heard good things about the movie, I’m down to see it when I get a chance. Not in theaters though. Years before COVID-19 I stopped going to theaters (although I did experiment with them again for Endgame and a few MCU movies before that).

  2. Yep, international numbers sure, 90% China 3.5 million Thailand for some reason mentioned.
    Its funny how its ‘global’ numbers, when most is China, its been for a while.

  3. The movie is awesome, 10,000% fan service. Ryan Johnson and J J Abrahams could learn a thing or two about making a big franchise movie. Just give fans what they want.

    Not sure what you are saying here. The movie hasn’t released in China and there’s doubt if it will.

    You are right! Didn’t know China was out for now. All i was saying typically its said ‘global ‘ numbers when china is huge % of the market, it has ben for the MCU.

  6. Ahh, I see. I usually just check boxofficemojo for the numbers. I didn’t bother to check what about this movie the CCP might want to block this movie for, but I’m sure it’s for something stupid. Hell they already scrubbed Hong Kong media for anything they didn’t like and just took down a statue commemorating those that died in Tiananmen Square. Sry, got off topic there.
