Spider-Man: No Way Home is one of the biggest releases of the year and has now officially become Sony Pictures’ highest grossing movie of all time. 

The third Spider-Man movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe has earned a worldwide total of $1.16 billion. 

The movie, which is directed by Jon Watts, brought in $516.4 million in North America and $644.9 million internationally. As No Way Home still continues its strong run in theatres across the world, it is the third fastest movie to cross the $500 million mark. 

In North America, the superhero flick beat Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, which made a little over $404 million, to become the biggest hitter for Sony in the continent. Other movies in the list are 2002's Spider-Man ($403 million), 2019's Spider-Man: Far From Home ($390 million), and 2004's Spider-Man 2 ($336 million). 

With its massive international haul, No Way Home has overtaken the earnings of the previous #1 – Spider-Man: Far From Home, which made $1.13 billion. Skyfall, which released in 2012 is the only other Sony Pictures movie other than the two superhero movies to have crossed the billion dollar mark, having made $1.10 billion. 

The box office numbers of Spider-Man: No Way Home are impressive, considering that the movie did not have a release in China, which is one of the biggest cinema markets in the world.

No Way Home takes over from where the previous Spider-Man movie left off, and follows Peter Parker, as he tries to fit in the world after his identity was exposed. As he along with Doctor Strange opens their world to villains from other multiverses, the wall crawler has to figure out a way to set things right. 

The movie also stars Zendaya, Benedict Cumberbatch, Jacob Batalon, Jon Favreau, Marisa Tomei, Alfred Molina, Willem Dafoe, Jamie Foxx, Rhys Ifans, and Thomas Haden Church.
