‘Spider-Man’ set to break $1 bln box office record

“Spider-Man: No Way Home” has already smashed domestic box office records, and it is about to break a record no other film has managed in nearly two years — reaching $1 billion in worldwide ticket sales.

The film was released on December 17 and in less than a week, grossed a whopping $751.3 million worldwide, making it the third highest-grossing of the year, reports say.

At present, the highest-grossing film of the year is “The Battle of Lake Changjin,” a Chinese film released in November that has garnered $904.9 million worldwide, according to Comscore data. 

But the biggest record the film is anticipated to break is one even bigger than the Marvel universe.

“I wouldn’t bet against Spider-Man and his ability to climb into the $1 billion box office club,” senior media analyst at Comscore, Paul Dergarabedian said.

Spider- Man is presently third behind two Chinese movies, the first place spot being The Battle of Lake Changlin ($904.9 million) and Hi, Mom ($900.4 million). Both Pictures debuted before Spider-Man, Lake Changlin in November and Mom in February.

The film stars Tom Holland as Spiderman, whose identity has now been revealed as Peter Parker who asks for help from fellow Marvel universe character Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) to cast a spell which then spirals into a series of high-stakes events.

The film currently has an impressive 94% on trusted film critic site Rotten Tomatoes and a 9 out of 10 on IMDB.
