Here’s one thing Americans can agree on at the end of 2022: “Spider-Man: No Way Home” is a moving worth seeing.
The flick just hit $1 billion at the box office globally, making it the first movie since the pandemic to be that big of a blockbuster.
It did this despite the Omicron variant causing many people to test positive for COVID.
The movie is only available in theaters, not on streaming services, so it’s impressive that so many people took the trip to the cineplex to watch the latest Peter Parker adventure.
The last movie to hit the billion-dollar milestone was bay in 2019. It was “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker” that was able to do it right before the world shut down.
Since the spring of 2020, when the pandemic began, the biggest movie had been the James Bond sequel “No Time to Die,” which brought in $774 million.
The Spider-Man movie is killing it in the U.S. and brought in another $81 million this weekend alone.
Since it launched ten days ago, the movie has brought in $467 million and will pass the half-billion mark by Tuesday.
The next film to watch to see if it can eventually hit the billion mark is “The Matrix Resurrections,” which is off to a good start.
