The numbers for Sony/Marvel Studios’ “Spider-Man: No Way Home” are nothing short of historic. With a $260 million domestic and $600 million global opening — and both could go up after Sunday results are reported — the studio now has a film that stands among the top three biggest launches of all time.

With this result, “Spider-Man: No Way Home” now has the third largest global opening and the second largest domestic opening in box office history, beating the $257 million domestic opening of “Avengers: Infinity War.” It is now virtually guaranteed to become the first film since the pandemic began to gross over $1 billion worldwide — even if it doesn’t get a release in China.
