Once again Spider-Man seems to be trapping everything that flies by: “Spider-Man: Far From Home” took in an impressive $93.6 million in North America over the US holiday weekend and has passed the half-billion-dollar mark worldwide, industry watcher Exhibitor Relations estimated Sunday.

This latest in the Spider-Man franchise, made by Sony and Disney-owned Marvel, set a record six-day total for a Tuesday release of $185.1 million, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

Its story line follows on blockbuster “Avengers: Endgame” to focus on how Spider-Man (Tom Holland) and Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) confront a world without Iron Man. Also starring are Zendaya, Jake Gyllenhaal and J.B. Smoove.

Coming in second in its third week out was Disney/Pixar collaboration “Toy Story 4,” at $34.3 million. The film again features the voices of Tom Hanks as Woody, the eager but empty-holstered cowboy doll, and Tim Allen as space toy Buzz Lightyear.

In third, at $10.8 million, was Universal’s alternate-universe romantic comedy “Yesterday.” Himesh Patel stars as a struggling musician who, after a mysterious global blackout, is the only person in the world to remember the Beatles and their music — and takes full advantage of it.

Patel does his own singing; Danny Boyle, of “Trainspotting” and “Slumdog Millionaire” fame, directs.

Fourth spot went to Warner Bros. horror film “Annabelle Comes Home,” at $9.8 million.

“Men in Black: International” ($3.6 million)

“Avengers: Endgame” ($3.1 million)
