SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING Swings Toward An Astonishing $117 Million+ Domestic Opening, $257M Worldwide

As expected, Spider-Man: Homecoming reigns supreme at the worldwide box office with a spectacular $117 million domestic debut and an even better $140 million international bow. Come take a look!

The friendly neighborhood wall-crawler is finally back at the top of the box office where he belongs. 

Multiple sources are reporting that Marvel's Spider-Man: Homecoming is expected to win the weekend with a massive $117 million domestic opening from 4,348 locations, which smashes its initial projections of $80M-$100 million. This number could still go up higher, possibly to $120 million, if it holds strong through Sunday. IMAX made up a big chunk of the weekend collection, bringing in $10.6 million of the domestic haul from 392 screens. 

Internationally, Homecoming raked in a spectacular $140 million, bringing its current worldwide sum to $257 million after three days, a much-needed victory for Sony Pictures, who spent around $175 million to produce the film in collaboration with Marvel Studios & Columbia Pictures. 



The film's domestic opening earns it a spot as Sony's second-highest debut weekend ever, behind Spider-Man 3's monstrous $151.1 million opening in 2007 and ahead of Spider-Man's $114.8 million opening in 2002. However, adjusted for inflation, the Jon Watts-directed feature would rank fourth overall, right behind Raimi's trilogy. 

As for the rest of the weekend box office, Universal's Despicable Me 3 finished second with $33.99 million, bringing its worldwide gross to $447.6 million in its second week. Edgar Wright's critical darling Baby Driver sped to another $12.75 million, raising its worldwide box office total to an impressive $70.9 million. 

Warner Bros.' Wonder Woman continued its record-breaking run with another $10.1 million, good enough for a fourth-place finish in its sixth frame. The Patty Jenkins-directed blockbuster has now earned over $368.8 million domestic, $745.8 million worldwide and has officially passed David Ayer's Suicide Squad to become the second-highest grosser in the DC Extended Universe. The critically acclaimed film is now on pace to cross at least $800 million by the end of its box office run. 

Paramount's Transformers: The Last Knight finished fifth with $6.3 million in its third frame, $118.9 million domestic, and should cross $500 million worldwide by the end of the weekend. While not a terrible performance by any means, the Michael Bay swan song is performing well behind its 2014 predecessor Transformers: Age of Extinction, which is surely a disappointing result for the studio, especially with a Bumblebee-centric spinoff, starring Academy Award-nominated actress Hailee Steinfeld, on its way next summer.

Disney Pixar's Cars 3 finished sixth with $5.6 million, bringing its totals to $133 million domestic, $193.7 million worldwide.

Finishing right outside the domestic Top 10 were Disney's Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales ($1.2M weekend, $168.8M domestic, $734M worldwide), Universal's The Mummy ($1.16M weekend, $77.9M domestic, $384.6M worldwide), and Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 ($846K weekend, $385.5M domestic, $857.7M worldwide). 

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.
