A little over two months after his resurrection in Avengers: Endgame, Spider-Man will swing back into theaters for Spider-Man: Far From Home. With a July 2 release, the upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe film is on track for a huge holiday opening weekend.
Early estimates from industry analysts forecast Far From Home earning $154 million domestically across its first six days in theaters. The increased window is due to Sony opening the film on Tuesday, July 2, giving it a two-day lead on Independence Day and the subsequent weekend.
The box office predictions are a considerable increase over 2017's Spider-Man: Homecoming, which opened to $117 million before earning $334 million in North America and $880 million worldwide, second only to Spider-Man 3 as the highest-earning Spider-Man solo film to date. The 2007 film earned a staggering $890.9 million worldwide.
With a reported production budget of $180 million, not including marketing or distribution, Far From Home looks like another solid success for Sony and Marvel Studios. The film picks up shortly after the events of Endgame, with Peter Parker joining his classmates on a summer school trip across Europe, only to encounter Mysterio, Nick Fury and otherworldly destructive beings known as Elementals.
Opening July 2, director Jon Watts’ Spider-Man: Far From Home stars Tom Holland, Samuel L. Jackson, Zendaya, Cobie Smulders, Jon Favreau, JB Smoove, Jacob Batalon and Martin Starr, with Marisa Tomei and Jake Gyllenhaal.
