‘Spider-Man’ became the first pandemic-era movie to eclipse $1 billion in global box office

“Spider-Man: No Way Home” turned into the main pandemic-period film to overshadow $1 billion in global box office deals with one more solid appearance over Christmas weekend.

The Sony and Marvel flick pulled in an expected $81.5 million over the long weekend – in front of Universal’s “Sing 2” and Warner Bros.′ “The Matrix Resurrections”, which in a similar period got $23.8 million and 12 million, respectively.

In only 12 days, “Spider-Man” earned $467 million from North American theaters, and $587.1 million in abroad overseas markets – for an aggregate of $1.05 billion globally.

The hero film is quick to arrive at that billion-dollar achievement beginning around 2019’s “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.”

“Spider-Man” accomplished the feat, despite not playing in the critical Chinese market and the threat of COVID-19 Omicron variant.

The pandemic has negatively affected the film business as reflected by yearly box office deals.

With 2021 finding some conclusion, the North American box office is at present sitting at $4.3 billion and is probably going to net out around $4.4 billion.

Pre-pandemic, it was typical for a year’s box office to outperform $11 billion.
