Spider-Man: Homecoming finally swings into theaters this weekend, and it looks as though the Jon Watts' flick is on track for a pretty impressive worldwide opening.
Analysts predict that the new Marvel movie could earn somewhere in the ballpark of $90-$110-Million when it opens overseas. Add that to the $100-$120-Million it is expected to earn here in North America, and Spider-Man: Homecoming could kick things off with a worldwide box office debut somewhere around the $190-$210-Million mark.
For comparison, The Amazing Spider-Man raked in $62-Million domestically during its opening weekend, while the follow-up, The Amazing Spider-Man 2, opened with $91-Million when it opened in North American theaters back in 2014.
Clearly, with Marvel Studios backing them, Sony's latest superhero project stands to do much better this time around.
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 swings into theaters this Friday!
