Although falling to second place this week, Sony and Marvel’s Spider-Man: Homecoming has crossed $200 million domestically.
As expected, War for the Planet of the Apes took the number one spot this weekend, pushing Spider-Man: Homecoming to second place. The film fell 61% in its second outing, pulling in another $45 million, bringing the domestic total to $208 million stateside.
SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING dipped -61% in its sophomore spin, grossing $45M, $208M total.

The 61% decline for Homecoming is shockingly steep, especially given the film’s fantastic word of mouth. Even more surprising, though, is that its decline is on par with that of the Amazing Spider-Man films, which while not complete box office failures, never truly reached their full potential — or in The Amazing Spider-Man 2‘s case, ceased to be profitable for Sony. However, the decline shouldn’t be entirely too surprising given the film had to battle War for the Planet of the Apes in its second week, the third installment of the popular franchise that is also benefiting from great reviews and word of mouth.
International numbers have yet to be updated, however, the film has already surpassed $300 million worldwide and should successfully pass the $400 million mark at the worldwide box office once updated numbers are finally posted.
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.
