Spidey has a new record in his web.

Tom Holland swung back into theaters on July 2nd ahead of the long weekend celebrating Independence Day in America on July 4th.

The sequel to 2017’s Spider-Man: Homecoming proved to be a massive success among both movie-goers and critics, who deemed it “a fun and satisfying sequel.”

While it was expected that Spider-Man: Far From Home would shatter records for a Tuesday opening, the film has now also claimed the 6-day record for the July 4th weekend.

What’s even cooler is that Peter Parker snatched the record from himself as it was previously held by Spider-Man 2, which starred Tobey McGuire in the titular role.

As it stands, Spider-Man: Far From Home has grossed $185 million domestically and $580 million worldwide. It is now in course to be the first Spider-Man film to break the billion dollar mark.

Good job, Parker.
