Spider-Man: No Way Home hit another major box office milestone today. Sony and Marvel’s newest feature earned $19.7 million on Christmas Eve to finish Friday with $405.5 million in domestic ticket sales and becoming Sony’s top-grossing domestic title of all time.
The bigger and more important milestone is that the film has made $1.05 billion worldwide so far. No Way Home is the first film since the pandemic began to hit the milestone. The film reached the milestone just 12 days after it was released. Only 2019’s Avengers: Endgame and Avengers: Infinity War reached that mark in less time, at 5 days and 11 days, respectively.
“What this represents is quite mind-boggling,” Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst at Comscore (SCOR), told CNN Business. “These numbers would be very impressive in the pre-pandemic era, but for ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’ to sprint to a billion dollars in this marketplace is really hard to wrap your mind around. The monumental achievement of ‘No Way Home’ hitting this number cannot be overstated for this industry right now.“
