Spider-Man: Homecoming Opens with $117 Million, and $250 million Worldwide
Spider-Man: Homecoming was the top film this weekend with a reported $117 million worldwide. That is the second best opening for a Spider-Man film barely beating the 2002 original (neither of those are adjusted for inflation). It’s also the largest opening for a single character for Marvel since 2008’s Iron Man. The film also earned $140 million at the foreign box office for a total of $257 million.
The film had the third largest opening of the year in between Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2‘s $146.5 million and Wonder Woman‘s $103.2 million. The film still has to open in France, Germany, Spain, Japan, and China.
Despicable Me 3 came in second place with an estimated $34 million to bring its domestic total to $149 million. Worldwide the film has earned $447.6 million.
Baby Driver continues to overperform coming in third with $12.8 million to bring its domestic total to $56.8 million with $14 million at the foreign box office for a worldwide total of $70.9 million. With a budget of $34 million, the film’s a success.
Wonder Woman added $10.1 million to its domestic total to come in fourth. With $377 million at the foreign box office the film has earned $745.8 million worldwide so far. There’s a good chance the film will pass Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 domestically in the next week or two.
Rounding out the top five was Transformers: The Last Knight which earned an estimated $6.3 million. The film stands at $118.9 million domestically and $494.6 million worldwide.
Next week sees the opening of War for the Planet of the Apes which will create an interesting competition for first place. Expect a tight race driven by the film’s strong word of mouth.
