The billion-dollar mark has been surpassed by Spider-Man: Far From Home, the critically lauded sequel to Spider-Man: Homecoming.
Additionally, Far From Home is the second Sony-backed movie to hit $1 billion, with Skyfall having hit the mark back in 2012.
THR’s estimates, as of Thursday, place Far From Home—now the 40th movie to ever surpass $1 billion—at approximately $672 million overseas and $333 million stateside. As math tells us, that’s roughly $1.005 billion total.
“I feel like the Russo brothers teed us up for a really exciting film and Jon Watts knocked it out the park,” star Tom Holland, who’s now portrayed Spidey/Peter Parker in more movies than any other actor, told Uproxx last month of following up the tears-inducing events of Endgame.
“I’m just really excited and proud to see it because I feel like we’re giving the fans an opportunity to grieve through Peter Parker.”A sequel to Far From Home, now clearly the biggest Spidey movie in history, is in development. No pressure or anything.
