SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING Is The #1 Superhero Movie Of The Year; KINGSMAN: THE GOLDEN CIRCLE Wins The Weekend

The weekend box office numbers are in and as expected, Kingsman: The Golden Circle has won the weekend. Plus, it looks like Spider-Man: Homecoming is officially the biggest superhero movie of the year!

Well, it's official. Marvel Studios & Sony Pictures' Spider-Man: Homecoming is the biggest superhero movie of the year, surpassing Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 ($863.4M), with a worldwide collection of $874 million.

The Jon Watts-directed blockbuster, which stars Tom Holland, has now firmly established itself as the second-highest grossing Spider-Man film ever (without inflation and 3D). However, despite that impressive milestone, the film is not expected to surpass the $890.9 million haul of Sam Raimi's Spider-Man 3, although I probably wouldn't bet against it at this point. Additionally, Homecoming is also the fifth-highest grossing film in the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe, behind The Avengers ($1.5B), Avengers: Age Of Ultron ($1.4B), Iron Man 3 ($1.2B), and Captain America: Civil War ($1.15B).

Overall, Homecoming has overtaken Zack Snyder's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice ($868.1M) to become the eighth-highest grossing superhero movie ever.



As for the weekend box office, 20th Century Fox's Kingsman: The Golden Circle is expected to win the weekend with a $39 million domestic debut. Internationally, its also on track to finish first with $61.2 million from 55 overseas territories, which means it should comfortably cross $100.2 million worldwide by the end of the day. 

Warner Bros. and New Line's monster hit It finished second in its third frame, bringing in another $30 million this weekend, raising its domestic total to $266.3 million and its worldwide sum to well past $478 million. Warner Bros.' The Lego Ninjago Movie, in a third place finish, disappointed with $21.2 million domestic, $31.7 million worldwide. Meanwhile, Lionsgate's American Assassin took in $6.25 million in its second frame, bringing its worldwide total to $32.3 million.

So, what do you guys think? Sound off with your thoughts below!


A young Peter Parker/Spider-Man (Tom Holland), who made his sensational debut in Captain America: Civil War, begins to navigate his newfound identity as the web-slinging super hero in Spider-Man: Homecoming. Thrilled by his experience with the Avengers, Peter returns home, where he lives with his Aunt May (Marisa Tomei), under the watchful eye of his new mentor Tony Stark (Robert Downey, Jr.). Peter tries to fall back into his normal daily routine – distracted by thoughts of proving himself to be more than just your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man – but when the Vulture (Michael Keaton) emerges as a new villain, everything that Peter holds most important will be threatened.
