On a wave of positive reviews (we really liked it, FYI) and a strong word-of-mouth, Spider-Man: Homecoming has managed to net (heh) itself a cool $250 million opening weekend.
In the US alone, Homecoming made $117,000,000 and puts it at the third-highest opening film in the US, nestled between Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2 ($146.5 million) and Wonder Woman ($103.2 million). Not only that, Homecoming comes with the added bonus of having a hugely positive CinemaScore rating. CinemaScore, for those that don't know, is the rating of the film tracked by audiences - not critics - and Spider-Man: Homecoming scored an 'A'.
All told, Spider-Man: Homecoming came in second in the entire Spider-Man franchise for opening weekends in the US, with Spider-Man 3 still on top with a then-record breaking $151 million opening weekend in 2007.
This is a big deal for everyone concerned, and points to Spider-Man's viability as a going franchise. Considering how poorly received The Amazing Spider-Man and Andrew Garfield was, there was a lot of pressure for this to work. The question now is, where do they go from here?
Right now, it's been confirmed by Marvel head-honcho Kevin Feige that Spider-Man will return for Avengers: Infinity War and the sequel to Homecoming, and that that film will launch Spider-Man off into his own universe where he may or may not cross paths with Tom Hardy as Venom. Feige's also confirmed that, so far anyway, Venom will not be appearing in any MCU films - but didn't rule out Spider-Man appearing in Venom or the like.
All this aside, Spider-Man: Homecoming has been a huge success and expect more from Tom Holland in the near future.
