Updated July 6, 2017: New industry estimates peg Spider-Man: Homecoming to have an opening weekend in the range of $190m to $210m worldwide, according to Deadline. The film, which opens in North America this evening, is expected to make $90-$120m domestically, with international ticket sales reaching $100m.
That would be behind the May release of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, which earned $247.7m ($146.5m domestic, $101.2m international) in its opening weekend.
Spider-Man: Homecoming is expected to open in 60% of international territories this week, with the major holdouts being France, Germany, Spain, Japan, and China.
Original Story: Industry projections place Spider-Man: Homecoming's opening weekend domestic box office in the $100m range, with predictions ranging from $90-108m, according to Deadline.
Spider-Man: Homecoming is reportedly trending highly with young males - unsurprising for a superhero movie - but is also trending well among families. The Hollywood trade also asserts that should Homecoming break $100m, it will continue a trend of so-called summer blockbuster "anomalies" in which superhero movies such as Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and Wonder Woman have vastly outperformed other studio summer tentpoles so far this year.
Spider-Man: Homecoming is the third franchise for the webslinger. His previous five movies, spread over two separate iterations, have grossed $3.96 billion worldwide.
Spider-Man: Homecoming is due out in theaters July 7.
