“Spider-Man: No Way Home” has achieved what few thought was potential through the pandemic period — prime $1 billion at the global box office.

The co-production between Sony and Disney is now the primary movie to surpass this benchmark through the pandemic and has additionally claimed the title of highest-grossing film of 2021. The final launch to exceed $1 billion was 2019’s “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker,” in response to knowledge from Comscore.

The newest Marvel Cinematic Universe movie reached $1.05 billion at the global box office over the Christmas weekend, beating out “The Battle of Lake Changjin,” a Chinese movie launched in November that has garnered $904.9 million worldwide.

“‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’s’ sprint to $1 billion within the context of this still pandemically-challenged marketplace is nothing short of astonishing,” mentioned Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst at Comscore. “It demonstrates the power of a great movie to draw fans around the world to enjoy the shared and communal experience that only the movie theater can provide.”

Audiences flocked to theaters final weekend to catch “No Way Home” earlier than potential spoilers might be leaked on-line. Now, they’re returning for repeat viewings, a standard prevalence for MCU motion pictures.

Domestically, “No Way Home” is predicted to tally round $81.5 million throughout its second weekend, a projected 69% drop from its debut. Most MCU movies drop between 50% and 70% between their first and second weekend.

“The partnership between these two Hollywood entities is clearly one of great benefit to both,” BoxOffice.com chief analyst Shawn Robbins mentioned of Sony and Disney.

The two firms brokered a deal that will enable the Sony-owned Spider-Man to look in Marvel’s cinematic universe. The settlement not solely meant that Marvel could be concerned in Spider-Man’s solo tasks, which had been financed by Sony, however that the character may seem in different Marvel movies.

Tom Holland, who portrays the latest iteration of Peter Parker, has now appeared in six Marvel Cinematic Universe movies, together with three solo options. Disney and Sony renegotiated this deal in 2019 to separate manufacturing prices and box office receipts.

2017’s “Spider-Man: Homecoming” generated the second-highest box office run of any Spider-Man movie launched in theaters with its $880.4 million worldwide haul, in response to Comscore knowledge. Then 2019’s “Spider-Man: Far From Home” grew to become the highest-grossing Spidey movie and first to prime $1 billion, with $1.132 billion in global ticket gross sales.

“The symbiotic circle they form could reap rewards for a long time to come, and with characters beyond just Spider-Man, if it continues to flourish creatively,” Robbins mentioned. “The results of the past few years have shown it to be in the best interest of everyone for such a partnership to endure, and perhaps even inspire other tag-teams throughout the industry.”
