‘Spider-Man: Far From Home’ set to reach $800 million worldwide
In its second weekend of global release, the Sony-Marvel sequel Spider-Man: Far From Home is on pace for another super-sized result, as it approaches $800 million in worldwide box office.
This frame should boost the wall-crawler toward at least $780 million range on the lower end, and could possibly see the MCU hero swinging beyond the $800+ million mark if its holds are strong enough.
Much depends on The Lion King next week, since the family film should dominate all markets and will eat into the main demographics driving Spidey’s attendance. But we’ve already seen Aladdin, Toy Story 4, and Spider-Man: Far From Home open within weeks of each other without significantly stalling. Aladdin is headed toward a $960+ million finish, Toy Story 4 is topping $700+ million this weekend after opening in Japan and with many territories left on its release schedule, and Far From Home as noted looks sure to top $1 billion.
By next weekend, Far From Home could surpass 2007’s Spider-Man 3 to become the all-time highest-grossing entry in the web-slinger’s film franchise. If it doesn’t accomplish that feat by the end of next weekend, then it should manage it before the start of the following weekend. That it will happen is inevitable, though.
And even if Far From Home winds up on the lowest end of potential outcomes, it would still be looking at a global cume somewhere around $950+/- million.
