After a successful launch in China, Spider-Man: Homecoming has crossed the $800 million mark at the worldwide box office. The movie has passed Guardians of the Galaxy worldwide, sitting firmly behind its sequel, which finished at $863 million. Of course, Spider-Man: Homecoming still has time to catch up.
The film, from Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios, swung up to $70.8 million in China, topping the foreign chart for this weekend, cementing it as the third highest-grossing start for a superhero movie in China, ever. The only two movies ahead of it are Marvel's Avengers: Age of Ultron, which opened to $115.8 million, followed by Captain America: Civil War, which launched at $93.6 million.
Spider-Man: Homecoming has made $822.8 million worldwide so far, with a $327.7 million domestic run, dominating The Amazing Spider-Man 2's $709 million, The Amazing Spider-Man's $759.9 million, and Spider-Man 2's $783.3 million. To coincide with Homecoming's launch in China, Marvel released a bunch of eclectic posters showing the web-slinger in a variety of weird environments, including Spidey (naturally) riding a horse, chilling with pandas, and resting above the Great Wall of China.
Directed by Jon Watts, Spider-Man: Homecoming stars Tom Holland, Michael Keaton, Zendaya, Donald Glover, Jacob Batalon, Laura Harrier, Tony Revolori, Tyne Daly, Bokeem Woodbine, Marisa Tomei and Robert Downey Jr.
