Los Angeles: Tom Holland’s “Spider-Man: No Way Homes”, Sony’s comic book adventure over the weekend, has become the sixth-highest-grossing film in history with a global box office collection of $1.69 billion.
‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’ breaks ‘Jurassic World’ ($1.67 billion) and ‘The Lion King’ ($1.66 billion) record to become the sixth highest grossing film in history.
Now in its sixth weekend of release, ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’ returned to the Number 1 slot in North America, adding $14.1 million between Friday and Sunday, along with $27.7 million overseas.
The superhero epic, starring Tom Holland as Marvel’s neighbourhood web-slinger, opened in December and has generated $721 million at the domestic box office and $970.1 million internationally.
Outside of the United States, where ‘No Way Home’ ranks as the fourth-biggest movie ever, Spidey’s latest adventure has done especially well in the U.K. — Holland’s birthplace — amassing $116 million to date.
Other top-earning territories include Mexico with $73.4 million, South Korea with $60.6 million and France with $59.9 million.
It’s notable that ‘No Way Home’ has managed to shatter records and smash expectations without playing in China, which is the world`s biggest moviegoing market.
