It’s a superhero-sized opening weekend (to say the least) for Spider-Man: Far From Home.
Although the weekend isn’t quite done, early figures show that the second solo Spider-Man movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) is burrowing towards success with a huge US$310 million likely to be made worldwide during its opening weekend.
North America is expected to contribute heavily to the huge weekend, pouring in a predicted US$180 million in domestic ticket sales (up from initial estimates of US$125-$150 million), The Hollywood Reporter reported.
Despite still being early days, the Spidey movie is already is en-route to swing past its predecessor Spider-Man: Homecoming, which made US$117 domestically in 2017.
Spider-Man: Far From Home sees Tom Holland slip back into the red and blue suit for less of a ‘friendly neighbourhood’ adventure and more of an Earth-saving task.
The film is set in Europe and sees Samuel L. Jackson join Holland as Fury, along with Zendaya and MJ and Jacob Batalon as Ned.
