Spider-Man: No Way Home passes the $1.5 billion mark at the box office, making it the eighth highest-grossing film of all time.

Spider-Man: No Way Home is now the eighth highest-grossing film of all time, less than a month on from its initial release.

The epic movie, which contains multiple guest stars, stormed to the top of box office charts around the world - earning a stunning £440m in its opening weekend alone.

The film passed $1 billion (£736m) in box office receipts on Christmas Day but now that figure has swelled further to $1.536bn (£1.13bn), according to the latest sales data.

As a result, No Way Home has now surpassed the likes of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Frozen II and The Avengers to sit eighth in the all-time chart.

The movie is within a whisker of overtaking seventh-placed The Lion King ($1.66bn) and sixth-placed Jurassic World ($1.67bn) but has some way to go to better the $2.05bn earned by fifth-placed Avengers: Infinity War.
