Nearly two weeks since the successful theatrical release of Spider-Man: No Way Home, the third Tom Holland-led installment has broken another record by becoming Sony Pictures’ highest-grossing film of all time with a current worldwide box office total of $1.16 billion. This year’s biggest superhero film has surpassed its predecessor Spider-Man: Far From Home, which holds a worldwide gross of over $1.13 billion.

This is surely an impressive feat considering its limited worldwide screenings due to the ongoing pandemic. It is expected to earn more in the coming days or weeks as it hasn’t arrived in countries such as China, Japan, and the Philippines.

This also marks Holland’s fifth time starring in a billion-dollar box office movie following Captain America: Civil War, Avengers: Infinity War, Avengers: Endgame, and Spider-Man: Far From Home.

Spider-Man: No Way Home sees the return of Tom Holland as the beloved titular wall-crawler, along with Benedict Cumberbatch’s Doctor Strange. The threequel also features the return of Spider-Man vets J.K. Simmons (Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man trilogy) as J. Jonah Jameson, Alfred Molina (Spider-Man 2) as Doc Ock, Willem Dafoe (Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man trilogy) as the Green Goblin, Jamie Foxx (The Amazing Spider-Man 2) as Electro, Thomas Haden Church (Spider-Man 3) as Sandman, and Rhys Ifans (The Amazing Spider-Man) as Lizard.
