Spider-Man: Far From Home Swings to Second Weekend Atop Box Office


Spider-Man: Far From Home is swinging back to the top of the box office charts in its second weekend. This weekend’s box office chart looks a lot like last week’s at first glance. Spider-Man sits in the first place spot, earning an estimated $13.37 million on Friday. It’s expected to haul in another $40 million to $45 million over the weekend. That’s a downturn of about 59% from the film’s record-setting opening weekend over the July 4th holiday. The film’s domestic total should climb to about $260 million by Monday. Overseas, the film has earned $392 million for a $613 million global total.

Tom Holland returns as Peter Parker in Spider-Man: Far From Home, the sequel to Spider-Man: Homecoming. Peter heads to Europe on a class trip with Ned (Jacob Batalon), MJ (Zendaya), and the rest of their class. The trip becomes less of a vacation and more of a work trip when Spidey is called in by Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) to team up with Mysterio (Jake Gyllenhaal) and investigate mysterious elemental creatures popping up across the continent.

In another repeat of last weekend, Toy Story 4 sits in the second-place spot. After earning an estimated $6.25 million on Friday, the animated feature is looking at $20 million to $22 million in its fourth weekend in North America. Globally, the film has earned over $670 million for Disney.

This weekend’s highest-placing opener is disaster horror flick Crawl. The story of alligators terrorizing a hurricane-stricken Florida town is performing above projections. After earning $4.3 million on Friday, the film is now estimated to earn $10 million to $13 million over the weekend.

Stuber, the buddy comedy vehicle for Dave Bautista and Kumail Nanjiani, is opening in fourth place. Disney’s first R-rated release in six years earned about $3 million on Friday. It’s estimated to open on the low end of projections with about $7.5 million.
