'Spider-Man: Homecoming' Slings to Massive $117 Million Domestic Opening

"Spider-Man: Homecoming", budgeted at around $175 million with Tom Holland in the title role, opened over the weekend with an estimated $117 million domestically, according to the studio.

"As Spider-Man returns to the big screen, we at Pizza Hut are ready to deliver our crowd and family-favourite All-In-One Box, the flawless combination for routine pizza nights and one super-powered summer".

Homecoming kicks off the third version of the Spidey franchise in the last 15 years, and the second reboot since 2014's The Amazing Spider-Man with Andrew Garfield.

Much attention has been paid to the flick's successful marketing campaign, which heavily featured Iron Man (Robert Downy Jr.), who serves as Spider-Man's mentor in the film. Starting with "Despicable Me 3", which is headed for a $34 million second frame, or a 53% drop from last weekend.

In its second weekend, TriStar, MRC, Working Title, Big Talk, and Sony's "Baby Driver" is expected to pick up another $12.5 million after making off with a almost $4 million heist from 3,226 locations on Friday. The fifth film in the Paramount franchise is expected to make just $6 million this weekend. It went on to gross $335 million at home and a further $555 million overseas for a total haul of $890 million. "Homecoming" surpassed 2002's "Spider-Man" opening of $114 million to claim second place all-time. "Wonder Woman" continued to impress with an additional $10 million in its sixth weekend, which brings its domestic receipts to a staggering $370 million and counting. However, The Last Knight has performed well internationally where it's banked $375.7 million so far.

"Cars 3", "The House", "The Big Sick", "47 Meters Down", and "The Beguiled" round out the top ten. However, when Kazan's American grad student Emily falls into a coma, Nanjiani's Pakistani stand-up comedian begins to bond with her parents Terry and Beth (Ray Romano and Holly Hunter).

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.
