'Spider-Man: No Way Home' becomes first pandemic-era movie to smash $1 billion milestone globally

Spiderman: No Way Home, which released in December, became the first pandemic era movie to cross 100 million dollars at the box office in its debut weekend of release. Starring Tom Holland as Spiderman, the movie also registered the third-highest opening in box office history, after 'Avengers Endgame and Infinity War.

The film made by Sony and Disney’s Marvel Studios has had a wonderful run at the box office, particularly since the world is still amid a pandemic.

“No Way Home” made highlights with a record-breaking opening weekend at the North American box office last weekend bringing in $260 million. That was the second-largest domestic opening of all time.

That opening was the best ever for the Spider-Man franchise and Sony Pictures in the month of December.

“What this represents is quite mind-boggling,” Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst at Comscore (SCOR), told CNN Business. “These numbers would be very impressive in the pre-pandemic era, but for ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’ to sprint to a billion dollars in this marketplace is hard to wrap your mind around.”

“The monumental achievement of ‘No Way Home’ hitting this number cannot be overstated for this industry right now,” he added.
