Weekend Box-Office: SPIDER-MAN HOMECOMING Scores $250M Worldwide


"Spider-Man: Homecoming" didn't break any records but topped the charts with a spectacular amount of money. Meanwhile the rest of the Top 10 didn't show any spectacular changes, especially since there were no other new wide releases.

Find out more about the weekend box office after the jump.

The Marvel-Sony partnership "Spider-Man: Homecoming" finished in first place with $117 million, which makes it the second largest opening in the "Spider-Man" franchise, slightly above Sam Raimi's original "Spider-Man" ($114.8 million) and below "Spider-Man 3" ($151.1 million). Of course, these numbers don' take inflation into account, which changes the order significantly. It is however an improvement over "The Amazing Spider-Man" reboot series, which opened with $62 million and $91.6 million, respectively. The new reboot series still has to earn the trust of loyal Spider-Man fans, but considering the enthusiastic response so far, the sequels will probably earn a lot more. The film received and "A" from opening night audiences according to CinemaScore and critics liked it a lot, as well (93% on Rotten Tomatoes and 73 on Metacritic).

"Spider-Man: Homecoming" raked in $140 million overseas from 56 mmarkets, with the most money coming from South Korea ($25.8 million). The film will also open in France, Germany, Spain, Japan and China later on, with the latter probably adding a significant boost to the global cume.

The animated sequel "Despicable Me 3" dropped to second place with $33.9 million. The film has grossed $149.1 million domestically and a solid $298.4 million internationally. It also broke a record in China, where it grossed $66 million, the largest opening for an animated film.

"Baby Driver" moved over to #3 in its second weekend, but is keeping a steady pace with only a 38% drop from its debut, grossing $12.7 million. Overseas it grossed over $56 million, which adds up nicely against its $34 million budget.

"Wonder Woman" held over in fourth place with $10.1 million and a domestic total of $368.7 million, while its international cume now stands at $377 million.

The Top 5 is rounded up by "Transformers: The Last Knight" which continues its steep decline, aproximatively 60% in its third weekend, grossing $6.3 million for a $120 million domestic total, the worst performance in the 5-film series directed by Michael Bay. Internationally it brought in $375.7 million.

Elsewhere in the Top 10, the independent romantic comedy "The Big Sick" , developed by Amazon Studios, upgraded to #8 and grossed $3.6 million after adding 255 more theaters to the 71 it was already shown in. The film expands nationwide next week.
