SPIDER-MAN: FAR FROM HOME Opens Domestically With $185 Million in Extended Week; $580M Global Tally

SPIDER-MAN: FAR FROM HOME took in over $185 million for its 6-day opening in the Fourth of July extended holiday corridor. For its standard opening weekend, the Spidey sequel took in $93.6 million falling just short of beating TRANSFORMERS: DARK OF THE MOON and its record $97.8 million opening in 2011.

Its domestic opening did fall short of the $117 million 3-day opening weekend SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING made when it released on July 7, 2017. However, SPIDER-MAN: FAR FROM HOME has already amassed over $580 million globally in just 10 days as it was released in some markets last week. Homecoming's total global haul was $880 million and Far From Home is well on its way to topping that and potentially has a chance to become the first Spider-Man movie to eclipse the $1 billion mark.

Despite falling short of its predecessor, this is still a massive hit for Marvel Studios and Sony as the Spider-Man brand is still in fact going strong even though this is the seventh live action Spidey film released in the past 17 years along with the recent animated movie SPIDER-MAN: INTO THE SPIDER-VERSE opening just seven months ago.

SPIDER-MAN: FAR FROM HOME also had a lesser production budget than SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING by $15 million.
