SPIDER-MAN: NO WAY HOME is the First $1 Billion Worldwide Movie Since STAR WARS: THE RISE OF SKYWALKER

It took nearly two years but the world finally has its next $1 billion box office hit with SPIDER-MAN: NO WAY HOME. The last film to reach $1 billion worldwide was STAR WARS: THE RISE OF SKYWALKER when it hit that mark in January 2020, before the pandemic took hold.

According to Deadline, the latest Spider-Man movie took in over $81 million domestically this holiday weekend to bring its domestic total to $467 million.

Internationally, the film has brought in $587 million.

Add those together and you get over $1 billion worldwide, which is the first film to do so since Covid took hold of the planet in the first quarter of 2020. Also, No Way Home never released in China which makes the film one of a few to ever reach $1B worldwide without the help of the world's second largest box office. Could mark the end of catering to China for added box office numbers? Only time will tell.

This week the movie should easily pass the $1.13 billion SPIDER-MAN: FAR FROM HOME made becoming the highest grossing Spider-Man movie to-date.

With how SPIDER-MAN: NO WAY HOME ended, and the fact Marvel Studios has confirmed they are beginning to develop the next big screen adventure for actor Tom Holland's Spider-Man, the wall crawler is still one of the biggest super hero draws at the box office.
