“Spider-Man” & “Aladdin” Hit Box-Office Markers

Spider Man Far From Home Trailer Saturday

Marvel and Sony’s “Spider-Man: Far From Home” is reportedly eyeing an estimated $26.5 million Friday haul, up from the $25.1 million it made yesterday on the holiday.

After four days in cinemas, the film has pulled in $117.9 million in the U.S. alone and early estimates are that by the end of Sunday it will garner between $166-180 million domestically. That’s way up on the $125 million estimates Sony had for the six-day run and up on the $154.1 million that “Spider-Man Homecoming” made in its first six days.

The film has already taken in $218.5 million overseas so far and by the end of Sunday its global total could potentially reach the $500 million mark. It also boasts a budget of $165 million, a full $10 million LESS than its predecessor.

Marvel’s new film isn’t the only one making headlines this weekend. Disney’s live-action “Aladdin” has crossed the $900 million mark globally. The Will Smith-starrer has become one of the studio’s biggest live-action titles ever and is currently the third biggest film of the year domestically and worldwide – and the biggest outside the MCU.

Finally, A24 reports that horror feature “Midsommar” is on track for a $13-15 million domestic haul over its first five days.
