BOX OFFICE: SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING Spectacularly Exceeds Expectations With $125+ Million

Well, we didn't see this coming! Spider-Man: Homecoming has come in well above estimates this weekend in what's looking like an amazing, astonishing, and spectacular debut for the MCU's wall-crawler...

Spider-Man: Homecoming has been tracking bigger and bigger all week but after recent figures pointed to a debut somewhere in the $100 million range, the latest numbers now point to the reboot scoring a three-day haul of between $125 million - $127 million. That's the second-biggest domestic opening of all-time for Sony Pictures and the second biggest opening weekend out of the six Spider-Man movies. 

With $15.4 million from Thursday evening preview screenings, Spider-Man: Homecoming's predicted opening day haul has surged from an estimated $49 million to $51.5 million. This is an awesome result for Sony and proof that teaming with Marvel Studios was definitely the right (and very smart) decision. 

Marvel also benefits as they own the merchandising rights to the wall-crawler and the more popular this reboot is, the more toys they'll sell! Younger moviegoers appear to be flocking to what is essentially Marvel's first Young Adult movie so it will be interesting to see how Saturday matinees do and whether or not we suddenly start seeing an influx of comic book adaptations set in high schools!
