Spider-Man: Homecoming‘s good fortune at the box office continues with a Tuesday that’s a big boost from Monday’s already-great numbers.
According to Forbes, Spider-Man: Homecoming has brought in a Tuesday haul of about $15.1M, rising about 23.4% above Monday’s. For frame of reference, that’s actually slightly greater a Monday-to-Tuesday increase to the massively-overperforming DC hit Wonder Woman, which rose 22% on a slightly lower gross for the two-day frame. This is also the largest non-opening Tuesday for a Spider-Man movie, ahead of Spider-Man ($10M), Spider-Man 2 ($12M), Spider-Man 3 ($8M), The Amazing Spider-Man ($8.6M), and The Amazing Spider-Man 2 ($6.2M).
The total for the picture is now sitting at $144.3M – for frame of reference, Homecoming has thus far made slightly more in five days than what The Amazing Spider-Man made in seven back in 2012, and it’s a strong sign that the movie has legs at the box office. The movie is currently expected to have a second weekend of $50M-$55M, which will put the estimated domestic total at $215M-$220M if Wednesday and Thursday go as expected. Suffice to say, any fan that was worried that general audiences were getting sick of Spider-Man can safely put their worries to rest.
Compared to other superhero movies this Summer serves as a snapshot of a the box office that’s worth of being published in the Daily Bugle. The second Spider-Man reboot managed to hit the ground running this week with a Monday-Tuesday total ($27.3M) that’s not only greater than Wonder Woman as previously mentioned ($26.1M), but it’s significantly ahead of Marvel’s earlier release Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol. 2 ($22M).
It’s unlikely that Spider-Man: Homecoming is going to have the kind of insane box office legs that Wonder Woman had (as that movie’s on its way to ending its run near or past four times what it made on its opening weekend), but the strong weekday attendance is a very good sign for the budding Marvel-Sony partnership. While the movie will have stiff weekend competition in the form of this weekend’s War for the Planet of the Apes and next weekend’s Dunkirk, Homecoming‘s status as the only family-friendly live-action movie on the block and a lack of breakout August hits will definitely help it and the aforementioned movies pull in the big bucks over the next two months.
