Box office report: Spider-Man: Homecoming swings into No.1
Jul 10, 2017, 00:36
"Spider-Man: Homecoming" opened to a strong $117 million in the USA and Canada, according to studio estimates-the best opening for a film featuring the web-slinging teenager in a decade.
After keeping the buzz high for the past couple of weeks, Tom Holland starrer Sony's Spider-Man: Homecoming finally made its way to the theatres and has already broken the records set by the franchise.

Among holdovers, Universal and Illumination Entertainment's Despicable Me 3 fell to second place with $34 million from 4,535 theaters for a 10-day domestic total of $149.2 million and global tally well north of $300 million.

In terms of limited release fare, A Ghost Story earns an estimated $108,067 from four locations for a strong per theater average of $27,017.
