Sony's animated Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is less than a month away from release, and the first box office estimates have the film on track to have a solid opening weekend.

Industry analysts predict the upcoming animated film will earn anywhere from $30-40 million during its opening weekend starting on Dec. 14. That gives the film a strong debut before Warner Bros.' Aquaman opens the following weekend.

It was announced earlier this morning that Into the Spider-Verse had secured a Chinese release the following week on December 21 which will give the Sony animated film a surefire boost at the international box office as the studio's Venom continues to earn millions daily in the country.

As the first major holiday release following Thanksgiving, the estimate for the animated Spider-Man film puts it on track to outperform this year's Smallfoot, which earned $23 million its opening weekend this past September, though far behind most Disney and Pixar animated films including Ralph Breaks the Internet, which is projected to earn $70 million over the five-day Thanksgiving weekend.
