UPDATE, writethru: In its fifth weekend, Sony/Marvel’s Spider-Man: No Way Home swung past the $900M mark at the international box office to weave a $926.3M running cume after a $33.4M session in 63 markets. The worldwide total through Sunday is an Electro-fying $1.625B.
Notably during the frame, this Spidey scaled new heights in Latin America, becoming the highest-grossing film of all time in Mexico ($72M cume) and the No. 2 movie ever in Brazil ($50.4M), Central America ($12.6M) and Ecuador ($7.9M).
The Tom Holland-fronted phenom also crossed $100M globally in IMAX with an estimated $101.2M through Monday. This is only the 11th title in the company’s history to the milestone. Overseas markets make up $40.7M of the total.
Still to come are Slovakia and Norway as Peter Parker and friends eye a potential $1B overseas, sans China. Superheroes (and horror, see below) are uniting factors at cinemas and there’s not much new coming up on a global scale until Roland Emmerich’s Moonfall begins offshore rollout on February 3.
