While 2017 has been kind of a hit-or-miss year for blockbusters in general, it also saw the release of three very successful superhero movies. Among them were Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Wonder Woman, and Spider-Man: Homecoming. While Wonder Woman may have understandably hogged a lot of the media attention thanks to its glass ceiling-shattering records, all three of the films managed to break $800 million worldwide, with Spider-Man: Homecoming ended its run on top of all three.
With its box office haul of $874 million worldwide off its $175 million budget, it’s an undeniable success for both Sony and Marvel Studios. As it stands, it’s now the second highest grossing Spider-Man movie of all time, behind Spider-Man 3, which brought in $890 million worldwide. The OCD person in me wants them to give it one last push to break that box office number, but the reality is that tomorrow, the film will hit its digital release, so that ship has sailed.
But the film was still a big success, and in celebration of the film’s success, and of its digital release tomorrow, Sony has unleashed the first 10 minutes of the film online for all to consume — which is well worth your time.
These first ten minutes show off the origins of Michael Keaton’s Vulture, and it all reinforces how Tony Stark seems to have a hand in a good number of villains’ back stories. From there, the clip delves into the meat of things, which consists of Peter Parker and his cell phone camera adventures while taking on Captain American in Civil War, before closing out as Peter returns to his daily life in New York City.
It’s a fantastic chunk of the film, and if you, for some reason, decided to skip the film, and still decided to click this article, then I think it’s my responsibility to say that this is a valid representation of what the film as a whole is. If it interests you, it’s worth a look.
