Your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man has slinged his way to the top, at least to the top of the Sony building. Spider-Man: Far from Home the latest film of the spider reached 1.109 billion dollars globally after this weekend’s box office –  376 million dollars domestically and 733 million worldwide.

With this, the movie had passed the former record holder of Sony studios Skyfall. The James Bond movie has earned 1.108 billion dollars in the box offices in his theaters run worldwide.

The success of Spider-Man: Far from Home bodes well to the future of the franchise born by a collaboration between Marvel and Sony. Spider-Man is, of course, one of the comics company most popular characters but Sony Entertainment holds the creative rights for it. In 2015 the studios have agreed to work together, thus incorporating the superhero into the MCU became possible. It is safe to guess that both sides are happy with the results of this deal.

Spider-Man: Far from Home is a sequel to Spider-Man: Homecoming. The movie which went on screens in early July sees the protagonist, peter parker, going on a field trip to Europe with his class and gets tangled up in what seems like an interdimensional war.
