Damn, Spidey, you’re doing good. Marvel Studios has been on a roll for years with their Marvel Cinematic Universe, with each movie almost seamlessly moving into the next one. With Avengers: Endgame out of the way, however, speculation began as to whether or not audiences would stop coming to these movies, as they closed things off in a very satisfying way. If yesterday was any indication, there are still plenty of fans willing to hit theaters.
THR is reporting that Spider-Man: Far From Home, the latest outing for the Webslinger from Sony Pictures, has taken in a record July 4 Tuesday $39.3 million in its opening. The previous record-holder there was The Amazing Spider-Man with $35 million back in 2012. That movie went on to take in $137 million over the six-day period.

So what does this mean for the weekend? It is projected to take in $150 million over the six-day period, with lower estimates coming in at $125 million. Annoyingly, this is hard to compare this with Spider-Man: Homecoming, as that movie had a more traditional three-day (or four-day if you count that Thursday) haul of $117 million. Given that we have those extra two days in addition to the holiday, it’s not exactly an apples to apples comparison.
Regardless, given the $160 million budget of Far From Home, this is looking to be a win for Sony financially and another critical win for Marvel Studios.
