Spider-Man: No Way Home starring Tom Holland has proven to be a hit with fans and critics as announcements were made that the recent Marvel/Sony release has raked in $1.16BILLION worldwide at the box office, since its debut!

According to Tuesday's box office figures, Spider-Man: No Way Home is Sony's top-grossing film ever! The third installment of the superhero franchise starring Tom Holland as the titular comic book character overtook the last big pre-pandemic blockbuster, Star Wars: Rise of Skywalker, which premiered in 2019.

No Way Home's massive success, less than two weeks after it debuted in cinemas, gives a boost of hope to the movie theater business which many had deemed on life-support due to the rise in popularity of streaming services in light of the pandemic. 

The third installment featuring Tom as the web-slinger has become one of the fastest movies to reach $1 billion at the box office and is the first to do so during the pandemic!
