Spider-Man: Far From Home Sets Tuesday Box Office Record On Opening Day

Spider-Man: Far From Home sets a new Tuesday box office record during its opening day in theaters. Despite Avengers: Endgame serving as a culmination for multiple MCU story threads and character arcs, the franchise's Phase 3 had one more movie to go until it wrapped up. Far From Home picks up shortly after Endgame, with poor Peter Parker looking to take a much needed mental break from superhero responsibilities after losing his mentor, Tony Stark. Nick Fury, of course, has other plans and recruits the youngster for a world-saving mission.

Unsurprisingly, Marvel has been on quite a roll this year. Back in March, Captain Marvel exceeded expectations and scored over $1 billion at the worldwide box office, cementing Carol Danvers as one of the MCU's new foundational pieces. Avengers: Endgame went on an unprecedented run and realistically challenged Avatar for the all-time global record. So, the thought was Far From Home would be another hit for the reliable MCU, with some estimates pegging it for a $150 million 6-day debut. And, Spider-Man has gotten off to a very good start.

According to Variety, Far From Home earned $39.2 million domestically in its first day, setting a new record for biggest Tuesday opening. Coincidentally, the film it beat was The Amazing Spider-Man, which made $35 million back in 2012. The updated projections have Far From Home grossing anywhere between $125-150 million over the extended Fourth of July holiday.

Those figures look strong, especially when compared to the sheer number of studio tentpoles that floundered this summer. However, when looked at from a certain perspective, they might raise a couple eyebrows. Spider-Man: Homecoming grossed $117 million in its first frame, which was a traditional 3-day weekend. After six days, its U.S. total stood at $154.1 million. It's tricky to compare the two considering the circumstances of their respective releases, but this is still something of an odd development. Obviously, Far From Home is by no means a commercial flop or disappointment, but some people probably thought it would easily surpass Homecoming's debut. Tom Holland's Spider-Man is now established as one of the more popular characters in the MCU and Far From Home was jumping off from the mega hit Endgame. Perhaps with this week marking the Fourth of July holiday, people have other plans besides going to the movies and will catch Spider-Man another time.

Even if Far From Home isn't as big of a hit as some might have anticipated, it nevertheless continues an upswing at the summer box office. Following a down period, Toy Story 4 posted a strong opening a couple of weekends ago, and now the latest Marvel movie is doing good business. Many will be quick to note that both of these films earned positive reviews from fans and critics, as opposed to the lukewarm reception for Dark Phoenix and Men in Black: International. Perhaps it's a sign of audiences getting wiser and being more selective of what they spend their money on.
