According to early tracking, Spider-Man: Far From Home is expected to pull in $154 million within the first six days of its release, which is pretty much what you'd expect of Marvel films these days. Oh, and it also doesn't hurt that its release date has been bumped up to Tuesday, July 3, which will enable those who like going to the movies on Independence Day an opportunity to do just that.
If the studio is able to hit that oddly specific figure (with broader ranges placing it between $150 to $180 million) the filmmakers will come close to matching, or may even surpass, the reported $160 million figure that Far From Home cost to produce.
Not bad for less than a week.
While that number can shift any time between now and then, that $154 million figure would appear to be a marked improvement over 2017's Spider-Man: Homecoming, which was also no slouch, and also represented Holland's first time as Peter Parker. That one ended up with totals of $334 million in North America and $880 million internationally.
Far From Home is the 23rd flick to take place within the Marvel Cinematic Universe. While it turned out that the previous subtitle represented an actual homecoming dance, Far From Home has Peter Parker getting recruited by Nick Fury and Mysterio (played by Samuel L. Jackson and Jake Gyllenhaal, respectively) to take on threats from another dimension. Just like Homecoming the dual-meaning comes from the fact that Parker takes a school trip to Europe. Chronologically it takes place after Avengers: Endgame, which is rapidly approaching the title of having the biggest box office take of all time.
As relayed by JoBlo, Far From Home's numbers could be impressive as hell and still not establish any new records. In fact, the current six-day record for Tuesday releases remains Spider-Man 2, which has held the mark since 2004 after bringing in $180 million that year. If Far From Home were to bust that, instead of their current just-short projection, they'd have to top expectations, which is familiar to Marvel since it was previously done by Black Panther, Captain Marvel, and the past two Avengers movies.
Try and be a part of history and check it out on July 3. Or just, like, go see it whenever you feel like it.
