Spider-Man: Far From Home is going to win the weekend box office easy but the question is how high will it swing?
The film opened with the largest Tuesday debut of all time with $39.25 million. That beats the previous record holder which was The Amazing Spider-Man.
The Amazing Spider-Man opened with $137 million over six days in 2012. Sony is predicting $125 million for six days for Spider-Man: Far From Home. It’s likely the studio is underestimating the grosses due to 2019 seeing a string of films failing to meet expectations.
Spider-Man: Homecoming opened with $117 million in July 2017. It’s hard to compare the two films due to their opening days and when July 4th falls this year. Spider-Man: Far From Home is expected by some to bring in over $175 million over six days.
The film has opened up internationally with openings in China, Japan, and Hong Kong. So far it has earned $111 million. It expands to the rest of the world, minus Italy, this coming weekend. It opens in Italy on July 10.

The woebegone web-slinger encounters problems
that make Dar Harat seem like a sewing circle—if he can escape from their
clutches, that is! Daily Bugle writer
Jenny Sue Saxton arrives and falls for Peter Parker while trying to become
Spider-Man’s biographer, even as Aunt May faces financial ruin in a very modern
kind of bank heist. Mary Jane returns just in time to learn an important
secret—and to introduce Peter to her Uncle Spencer Watson. Spidey’s reputation
is under fire when he’s accused of pushing drugs. And in a story that rivals
the classic “drug issues” of Spider-Man’s comic book, Stan Lee addresses one of the most heart-rending problems of modern
times: child abuse.
