'Spider-Man: Homecoming' Slings to Massive $117 Million Domestic Opening


"Homecoming" banked on the idea that the summer box office was craving a family-friendly superhero movie - Tom Holland plays a high school version of Peter Parker who, at 15 years old, has to prove that he is worthy of being called an Avenger.

If you're looking to read between the lines here, don't put undue weight on Spider-Man 3.

Coming in at No. 2 is Despicable Me 3 with $34 million, followed by Baby Driver at No. 3 with $12.8 million, Wonder Woman at No. 4 with $10.1 million and Transformers: The Last Knight at No. 5 with $6.3 million.

Overall, the film nabbed $257 million around the world this weekend. Under the watchful eye of mentor Tony Stark aka Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), Parker starts to embrace his newfound identity as Spider-Man. That's not bad, given Spidey's PG-13 rating. Spider-Man: Homecoming also toppled the debut of his last standalone feature, The Amazing Spider-Man 2, which opened at $91 million and ended up at $202 million during its theatrical run.

Despite the reliability of superhero movies at the box office, "Homecoming" could have been seen as a big bet for all parties involved. -D.C. Comics release "Wonder Woman".


"Homecoming" received an "A" CinemaScore from audiences and a 93% score from critics on the review site Rotten Tomatoes.

It also didn't hurt that the rest of the releases this weekend weren't major, so the rest of the top earners were in their second weekends. The DC Extended Universe movie continues its streak with another gentle 35.5 percent drop as it brings in an estimated $10.1 million, for a total domestic haul of $368.8 million (cementing its position as, domestically, the highest grossing DCEU movie) and a worldwide total of $745.8 million. From 326 North American theaters this weekend the movie should make $3.7 million.

Per ComScore, overall box office is down 0.1 percent with the same frame from a year ago.

For now, we can just forget about the sequels, because we can enjoy Spider-Man: Homecoming currently out in theaters! "The silver lining is the expected continued strength of Spidey, plus 'War For The Planet of The Apes, ' 'Dunkirk, ' and 'Atomic Blonde" all in rapid succession that could fuel a much-needed late summer renaissance at the multiplex".
