Add another notch on Spider-Man: No Way Home's long list of box office achievements.

Over the weekend, Sony's comic book adventure became the sixth-highest grossing movie in history with $1.69 billion at the global box office (not adjusted for inflation). It passed Jurassic World ($1.67 billion) and The Lion King ($1.66 billion) to secure that spot.

Now in its sixth weekend of release, Spider-Man: No Way Home returned to the No. 1 slot in North America, adding $14.1 million between Friday and Sunday, along with $27.7 million overseas. The superhero epic, starring Tom Holland as Marvel's neighbourhood web-slinger, opened in December and has generated $721 million at the domestic box office and $970.1 million internationally.

Outside of the United States, where No Way Home ranks as the fourth-biggest movie ever, Spidey's latest adventure has done especially well in the U.K. — Holland's birthplace — amassing $116 million to date. Other top-earning territories include Mexico with $73.4 million, South Korea with $60.6 million and France with $59.9 million. It's notable that No Way Home has managed to shatter records and smash expectations without playing in China, which is the world's biggest moviegoing market.

I didn't like the movie. They just stuffed in all the characters. Story line was weak.

Amazing, this movie made 1.6 bil dollars, and Pakistan is running around the world asking for 1bil dollars for the whole nation. Just comparing the scale.

@ST “ They just stuffed in all the characters. Story line was weak.”- all these marvel Disney movie are like that. Martin Scorsese has said that superhero movies are not cinema, they are like going to some entertainment park like Disney world.
