Spider-Man: Homecoming Rakes in $117M Domestically, $140M Overseas

The film officially opened at number one this weekend, well above the initial $90 million opening many predicted a month out from release. Word of mouth helped to build even more momentum for the highly anticipated film which currently has a Certified Fresh score of 93% on Rotten Tomatoes. Should the weekend estimates hold, Spider-Man: Homecoming's $117 million opening will mark the web-slinger's second best opening for Sony, falling only behind the highly divisive Spider-Man 3 which opened to a massive $151.1 million opening back in 2007.

Celebrating the film's success, Sony’s president of worldwide marketing and distribution, Josh Greenstein, couldn't help but to gush to Deadline about the film and the return of such a popular character like Spider-Man. "This is a triumphant return of Spider-Man, it’s one of the best-reviewed superhero movies of all-time and an incredible win for Sony and Marvel."

The film opened in 56 markers overseas and managed to set a new bar for the web-slinger at the international box office. Still ahead for the film are key markets that include China, Japan, France, Germany and Spain.

In theaters now, director Jon Watts’ Spider-Man: Homecoming stars Tom Holland as Spider-Man and Michael Keaton as Vulture, in addition to Zendaya, Donald Glover, Jacob Batalon, Laura Harrier, Tony Revolori, Tyne Daly, Bokeem Woodbine, Marisa Tomei and Robert Downey Jr.
