Tom Holland is having a pretty good time at the moment, but you know you’re doing really well when The Rock makes sure to get in touch with you. 

Tom is enjoying the huge success of his latest Marvel film Spider-Man: No Way Home, which recently broke box office records by making $600 million worldwide (£452m), making it the third biggest opening weekend, according to Variety

The film is just behind Avengers: Endgame and Avengers: Infinity War in terms of box office openings, but we're sure Tom isn't too worried about landing bronze as he starred as the Web Slinger in both of those movies too.

That success has obviously generated a lot of praise for the Spidey star, and one person in particular who knows a thing or two about box office success was one of many people lining up to share their congratulations.

Thanking fans for their support, Tom shared a behind-the-scenes look at the LA premiere of No Way Home, where he met his co-stars Benedict Cumberbatch and Jamie Foxx on the red carpet. 

In the video caption, Tom wrote:"Wow guys I can't believe these numbers. You made this possible. Your love and support means the world to me.

"Thank you thank you thank you and if you haven't seen Spider-Man No Way Home yet… merry Christmas and you know what to do.”

Box office heavy-hitter Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson was quick to comment underneath the video, and said: "I'm so happy about this!!!! Congrats to you and the entire TEAM. Enjoy this massive and historic win brother."

Tom’s Marvel co-star Simu Liu, who debuted as Shang-Chi earlier this year added: "Yeeee buddy!!!!!! Congrats on a smash opening.”

Could this mean we’ll see Dwayne muscle his way into a Marvel movie soon?
