Last week it became the highest-grossing Spider-Man movie, and now Spider-Man: Far From Home has gone another step further, becoming the web-slinger’s first solo outing to break the billion dollar mark at the global box office.
As reported by Deadline, Far From Home has amassed a worldwide haul of $1.005 billion through Thursday, with $333 million from North America and $672 million from international markets.
The Spider-Man sequel has surpassed the $963 million haul of Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle to become Sony’s second highest-grossing film ever behind Skyfall ($1.109 billion), and looks all but assured of taking the top spot by the end of its run.
Far From Home is the ninth MCU movie to reach $1 billion globally, and the third to do so this year alone after Captain Marvel and Avengers: Endgame.
