Spider-Man: Homecoming’s impressive first weekend has given Sony a good reason to celebrate their deal with Marvel Studios. It was also a good weekend for Warner Bros., as Wonder Woman reached yet another milestone during its sixth weekend in theaters.
We reported yesterday that Spider-Man: Homecoming nabbed $50.5 million on Friday in North America, and was heading toward a $120-125 million opening weekend. But Box Office Mojo said that the movie fell just shy of that mark, earning an estimated $117 million. The movie did finish out the weekend at Number One, and managed to take over Wonder Woman’s spot as 2017’s third-biggest debut.
Internationally, the Jon Watts flick racked up an estimated $140 million in 56 territories, including $25.8 million in South Korea, $12 million in Mexico, $11.8 million in the UK, $9.1 million in Brazil, $7.8 million in Russia, $7.6 million in Australia, $6.5 million in India, and $3.1 million in Italy. Spider-Man: Homecoming’s global total for its first weekend reached $257 million.
Wonder Woman may have lost its spot on the list of this year's biggest domestic debuts to the latest Marvel Cinematic Universe installment, but it improved its standing on other lists this weekend. The movie took Suicide Squad’s spot as the second biggest DC Extended Universe installment at the worldwide box office, and also became the fourth biggest DC Comics adaptation and the sixteenth biggest superhero movie of all time.
Adding an estimated $10.1 million domestically and another $6.8 million internationally, the Patty Jenkins flick's global take currently stands at $745.8 million. David Ayer’s Suicide Squad completed its box office run at $745.6 million. With a domestic gross of $368.8 million, Wonder Woman has moved past Deadpool ($363.1 million) to secure a place (for now) among the top ten highest-grossing superhero movies in North America.
