With $13 million or more, director Jon Watts' film would outpace the Thursday preview performances of such blockbusters as Deadpool ($12.7 million), Guardians of the Galaxy ($11.2 million) and Wonder Woman ($11.2 million). Homecoming would also launch out of the gate well ahead of 2007's Spider-Man 3 ($10 million), the final chapter in Sam Raimi's trilogy, and 2014's The Amazing Spider-Man 2 ($8.7 million), the Marc Webb sequel that preceded the reboot.

Although Sony Pictures is predictably conservative in its estimates, calling for an $80 million domestic debut, others place Spider-Man: Homecoming on track for an opening weekend of between $100 million and $110 million. Worldwide, it's expected to rake in between $190 million and $210 million.
