Spider-Man: Far From Home is looking like it’ll indeed get a box office bump from Avengers: Endgame and also buck the recent trend of sequels doing sluggish business this summer.
Estimates via outlets such as BoxOfficePro and others are suggesting an impressive $580 million global cume by Sunday, which would be 46% higher than Spider-Man: Homecoming. This has been sparked by a huge $167.4 million from China alone and the potential domestic debut of $185 million.
Opening the film slightly earlier on July 2nd seemingly helped give Sony Pictures a leg up on the July 4th week/weekend.
There is a good chance that Spider-Man: Far From Home will do what none of the solo Spider-Man films have been able to do since 2002, earn over a billion dollars. The sequel is in a prime position to reach a billion but would likely need to have two more strong weekends at the box office.
Sony Pictures would certainly be extremely happy if the film crosses a billion and could help cement securing a continued deal with Marvel Studios.
Spider-Man 3 hasn’t been officially announced, but given the opening numbers, it’s all but assured that Marvel/Sony will want to get cameras rolling in the near future.
