Spider-Man: No Way Home surpassed $1 billion in worldwide ticket sales over the weekend, the first movie to do so since the coronavirus pandemic. The sequel to the 2019 film Spider-Man: Far From Home, which was released by Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures exclusively in theaters, brought in $1.05 billion globally over just 12 days, and did so without the world’s biggest movie market: China.
Before their Chinese release, all foreign films must be approved by the China Film Administration and are subject to censorship. Spider-Man: No Way Home hasn’t yet received the sign-off from Communist party officials, but it could still make its debut in Chinese theaters sometime next year. Previous Spider-Man movies have done well with Chinese audiences; Far From Home brought in $199 million when it was released in the country two years ago. IMDB
