'Spider-Man: Homecoming' Swinging to $120 Million Debut

Home Movies "Spider-Man" Saves Sony with $120 Million Weekend-Bigger than James Bond! 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. 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.

Acclaimed action-musical Baby Driver, starring Ansel Elgort and Jon Hamm, parked in third with $12.8 million. This brings the film's total domestic earnings to $56.9 million, making the music-driven heist movie Wright's highest earning film yet.

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. Internationally, WW has surpassed Suicide Squad's $745.6 million global haul, making Batman v Superman, with its $873.3 million total, the only other DCEU movie ahead of it. It is now also the fourth movie to launch to over $100 million domestically this year, following "Beauty and the Beast", "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2", and "Wonder Woman". "Homecoming" surpassed 2002's "Spider-Man" opening of $114 million to claim second place all-time. From 326 North American theaters this weekend the movie should make $3.7 million. By end of day Sunday, the DC-Warner Bros. property will add another $10 million to its $720 million worldwide total.




Rounding out the top tier are Cars 3 at No. 6 with $5.6 million, The House at No. 7 with $4.8 million, The Big Sick at No. 8 with $3.7 million, 47 Meters Down at No. 9 with $2.8 million and The Beguiled at No. 10 with $2.1 million.

In terms of limited release fare, A Ghost Story earns an estimated $108,067 from four locations for a strong per theater average of $27,017.
