Spider-Man fans continued jamming theaters to see the newest installment of the superhero franchise, putting aside concerns about rising Covid-19 cases and pushing the film beyond the $1 billion mark to become the top-grossing film of 2021 globally.

Sony Group’s “Spider-Man: No Way Home” took in $84.5 million in domestic ticket sales in its second weekend, researcher Comscore Inc. estimated Monday. The movie, produced along with Walt Disney Co.’s Marvel Studios, had the second-biggest opening in Hollywood history last week, trailing only 2019’s “Avengers: Endgame.”
