Spider Man: No Way Home is officially the biggest film of the year.
The latest instalment of the web-slinger’s franchise swept past the $1 billion mark on Saturday, becoming the only film of 2021 to gross nine figures.
No Way Home achieved the feat 11 days after its release, putting it on par with Avengers: Infinity War as the second-fastest film to gross a billion worldwide.
It’s set to cross the $1 billion mark on Christmas Day. At 11 days, it would also be the first theatrical release of the pandemic to join the billion-dollar club even without China, the largest box office market in the world.
No Way Home made $29.3 million domestically on Thursday, bringing its seven-day gross to $385.8 million the third-highest seven-day gross of all time, the highest seven-day gross in the Spider-Man franchise, and the second-highest seven-day gross ever for December and for a superhero film.
Internationally, it brought in $32.2 million on Thursday, bumping its overseas total to $490.2 million and global haul to $876.0 million.
