'Spider-Man: No Way Home' Becomes First Pandemic Film to Hit $1 Billion USD
Also becoming the third-fastest movie ever to reach $1 billion USD.
Spider-Man: No Way Home has been a global success since it hit theaters. The Marvel film starring Tom Holland and Zendaya has raked in $1.05 billion USD so far, making it the only film released during the COVID-19 pandemic to reach this significant milestone.
The third movie from the Spider-Man franchise took 12 days to reach this accomplishment. The only other films to reach it faster are MCU‘s Avengers: Endgame and Avengers: Infinity War, which took five and 11 eleven days, respectively. Additionally, Spider-Man: No Way Home is the first movie since Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, which was released in December 2019, to hit $1 billion USD in the box office.
Luckily, fans can expect to see more from Holland as Peter Parker since the actor will be starring in a second Marvel trilogy. “This is not the last movie that we are going to make with Marvel — [this is not] the last Spider-Man movie,” producer Amy Pascal told Fandango. “We are getting ready to make the next Spider-Man movie with Tom Holland and Marvel, it just isn’t part of … we’re thinking of this as three films, and now we’re going to go onto the next three. This is not the last of our MCU movies.”
