Updated July 10, 2019Spider-Man: Far From Home crossed the $200m milepost at the domestic box office on Tuesday, its eighth day in release. 

According to Forbes it earned an estimated $15.13m for a new total of $211.07m. Given its Tuesday rather than standard Thursday night/Friday opening, direct comps are hard to come by but Spider-Man: Homecoming earned $13.6m its eighth day, which in that case was its second Friday, for a $176.7m cume. 

2012's The Amazing Spider-Man, which also opened on a Tuesday (also the first week of July, pre-holiday), earned $8.6m on its eighth day for a $153m total. 

Far From Home dropped 61% from its opening Tuesday to second Tuesday, while Amazing dropped 75%. 

The film should cross the $700m worldwide mark by Thursday and will likely outpace the global lifetime earnings of Sony's pre-MCU entries Amazing ($758m) and 2014's Amazing Spider-Man 2 ($709m) during the weekend.

Updated July 3, 2019: Sony Pictures' Spider-Man: Far From Home earned a record $39.3 million in its Tuesday domestic debut, according to The Hollywood Reporter. That tops the previous North American Tuesday record-holder Star Wars: The Force Awakens ($37.4m), and the biggest previous domestic Tuesday debut, Amazing Spider-Man ($35m) - not adjusted for inflation.

That $39.3m is a record, but is slightly below THR's $40-$48m estimate from Monday afternoon. The Hollywood trade is sticking with its $150m+ tracking for the film's six-day domestic start, however Sony is reported to be expecting $125m in that frame.

Original story form July 2, 2019: Spider-Man: Far From Home is projected to take in $40-$48 million Tuesday in its domestic opening day, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Citing unspecified early returns and a little bit of guesswork, THR expects the M CU Phase 3 finale to surpass 2012's Amazing Spider-Man ($35m) to be the top Tuesday opener in North America ever and 2015's The Force Awakens ($37.4m) for the best-ever Tuesday period. 

Adding to that, the six-day domestic forecast for Far From Home has been escalated from $125m+ to $150m+ after early receipts today.

The well-received Far From Home also opened to $98m in China this past weekend - $29m ahead of Homecoming's opening in the country. That was the third best opening of an MCU film and fourth biggest superhero opening in the world's second largest box office market behind Avengers: Endgame, Avengers: Infinity War and Venom and seventh-largest Hollywood film ever.
