New “Spider-Man” Poised For $100M Opening

The first tracking figures are in for next month’s “Spider-Man: Homecoming” which is on course to earn in the neighborhood of $90-108 million domestically in its opening weekend on July 7th.

That’s erring towards Sam Raimi’s first “Spider-Man” in 2002 which made $114.8 million in its opening weekend, and a big improvement on Marc Webb’s “The Amazing Spider-Man” which made $62 million in its three-day domestic opening.

Tom Holland takes on the role of Peter Parker in the new film which will continue the streak of major opening weekends by superhero films this Summer, the only films that are seemingly making serious major money.

The estimates come as a new TV spot has gone online showing off more of the film’s villain Vulture, and a screen cap of a tie-in app on Reddit has lead to highly speculative suggestions that Jackal could serve as the sequel’s villain.
