Good enough for the third best opening of the year!
Spider-Man: Homecoming opened in theaters in style this weekend, to the tune of $117 million across 4,348 theaters at the North American box office!
That’s a HUGE victory for the new release, and marks one of the best openers in all of 2017!!
The flick was critically acclaimed, which helped it some, but Spider-Man: Homecoming was likely set to pop off big no matter what, as the reboot boosts an ailing box office that needed a major summer pick-me-up!
Aside from Wonder Woman‘s opener, there have been some duds in new release the last few weeks, but not now!
Homecoming fell just behind Beauty and the Beast ($174.8 million) and Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2 ($146.5 million) as far as openers go on the year, and bested Wonder Woman ($103.3 million) by a good bit.
Homecoming also took home more than $140 million from globally, giving it an overall haul at $257 million after the first weekend! Whoa!! And that still is without officially opening in China yet!!
Most telling in regards to the bigger picture, of course, is that nothing else new opened from major studios this weekend.
Spider-Man or nothin’!!
