Updated September 25, 2017: Spider-Man: Homecoming has had the shortest time at the box office of 2017's major superhero films, but has already outpaced Logan, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, and Wonder Woman at the box office with $874m worldwide, according to Exhibitor Relations.

While the top film of 2017 (so far) is Disney's Beauty & The Beast at $1,262.9m according to Box Office Mojo, Spider-Man comes in fourth. Guardians Vol. 2 follows with $863.4m, Wonder Woman at $819.6m, and Logan at $616.8m.

Updated August 11, 2017: Sony Pictures' Marvel Studios-produced Spider-Man: Homecoming opened this past weekend in China to $70.8m in ticket sales, according to The Hollywood Reporter. That would make it the 19th largest opening in Chinese theatrical history.

The Hollywood trade relays that the studios are hopeful that Spider-Man will ultimately earn over $100m in China.

This past weekend's box office in China and elsewhere has pushed the relaunched Spider-Man franchise movie to $822.8m - $327.7m in North America and $495.3m internationally. Those numbers finally push the 2017 ahead of the 2002 Spider-Man film ($821.7m) but still behind 2007's Spider-Man 3 ($890.8m).

Spider-Man: Homecoming remains in 1,657 screens in North America, with its North American home video release coming September 26 digitally and a physical release October 17.

Updated July 11, 2017 at 10:14 a.m. ET: Spider-Man: Homecoming exceeded opening weekend expectations, as the receipts are in and the Sony Pictures film earned $116.5 million domestically and $140.5m internationally for a grand total of $257m, reports Deadline. The film beat out out last week's champ, Despicable Me 3, which had a $170.2m second weekend globally (although with a strong $136.7m international presence, neck-and-neck with Spider-Man.)

“We couldn’t be more thrilled about Spider-Man’s triumphant return to the box office," said Sony's President of Worldwidde Marketing & Distribution, Josh Greenstein.

Internationally, Spider-Man played in 23,400 screens across 56 offshore markets - earning the #1 spot in all but six.

The film openslater this month in France, Germany, and Spain.

Original Story: Estimates are in for Spider-Man: Homecoming's Thursday debut, and it adds up to $40.7m. Deadline reports that the Sony Pictures/Marvel Studios film earned $15.4m domestically and $25.3m internationally. Estimates from earlier in the week pegged the ultimate opening weekend worldwide gross between $190m and $210m.

In the United States and Canada, Spider-Man is showing stronger numbers than recent films such as Deadpool ($12.7m) and Wonder Woman ($11m), but behind the last Marvel Cinematic Universe film - Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 ($17m). Spider-Man opened in 3,450 locations in North America on Thursday, with that number growing to 4,348 for today's full-scale debut.

On the international front, Korea is particularly receptive to the Tom Holland-led film with $10.4m - an opening day record. The film won't open until later this month in France, Germany, and Spain, with Japan's debut months away and China's unknown.

Deadline cites demographic figures from PostTrak with Spider-Man: Homecoming numbers breaking down to 63% man and 37% women, with 53% of the people polled over the age of 25.
