Michael Mando Teases The Scorpion From Spider-Man: Homecoming

Spider-Man Homecoming First Weekend Box Office Collection

This post contains spoilers from the new movie Spider-Man: Homecoming, so beware before reading more! We first saw Tom Holland as the webbed crusader Peter Parker in "Captain America: Civil War" (2016).

A box-office hero, Spider-Man is home again.

Among holdovers, Universal and Illumination Entertainment's Despicable Me 3 fell to second place with $34 million from 4,535 theaters for a 10-day domestic total of $149.2 million and global tally well north of $300 million.

With its opening on July 7, the film earned a total amount of $50.5 million from 4,248 locations at the domestic box office. Michael Keaton plays the big bad, Vulture, Jon Favreau plays Spidey's guardian, Happy Hogan, and Zendaya stars as Michelle Jones ("MJ"), Parker's brainy classmate. Spider-Man: Homecoming also toppled the debut of his last standalone feature, The Amazing Spider-Man 2, which opened at $91 million and ended up at $202 million during its theatrical run.

Former Sony Pictures vice chairman Amy Pascal, who helped orchestrate the unique partnership with Marvel before exiting the studio, is a lead producer on Homecoming. -D.C. Comics release "Wonder Woman". "Homecoming" now has a 93% on Rotten Tomatoes and an A CinemaScore. That $12.8 million is a miniscule second weekend if you're a multi-million dollar summer blockbuster, but it's gravy at this point for Baby Driver, which has by now nearly doubled its reported $34 million budget at the box office.

In third is Edgar Wright's latest film, Baby Driver, which sees only a 38 percent drop for estimated earning of $12.7 million.

And among other superhero movies, "Wonder Woman" moved past the fifth "Pirates of the Caribbean" film to become the fourth-biggest film of the year worldwide, at $745.8 million. Sofia Coppola's "The Beguiled" should stay in the top ten as it, too, expands. Meanwhile, A24's "A Ghost Story" starring Rooney Mara and Casey Affleck should spook $105,000 from four locations during its opening frame.

"Despite the strength of "Spider-Man: Homecoming, ' yet another "down" weekend puts us dead even with last year's box office pace as we remain down 8% for the summer", said Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst at ComScore".
