Marvel's latest has swung to the top of the box office.
Spider-Man: Homecoming opened in 4,348 theatrical locations across North America this weekend, where it snagged a very healthy $117-Million and the #1 slot at the North American box office. The Jon Watts film is now the highest grossing opening for a single character intro within the Marvel Cinematic Universe, topping the $98.6-Million brought in by Iron Man back in 2008.
Overseas, Spider-Man: Homecoming brought in an additional $140-Million when it debuted across 56 different international markets including Brazil, Italy, Mexico, Russia and The United Kingdom. Upcoming markets include openings in France, Germany, Spain, Japan and China.
Spider-Man: Homecoming currently sits at $257-Million worldwide.
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.
Starring Tom Holland, Michael Keaton, Jacob Batalon, Laura Harrier, Zendaya, Tony Revolori, Donald Glover, Bokeem Woodbine, Michael Chernus, Kenneth Choi, Hannibal Buress, Martin Starr, Michael Barbieri, Angourie Rice, Abraham Attah, Tyne Daly, Marisa Tomei and Robert Downey Jr., Spider-Man: Homecoming is in theaters today!
