The latest Marvel Cinematic Universe output, Spider-Man: Homecoming, swings into theaters this weekend. And while it will be the sixth solo film for the web-slinging character, early industry tracking indicates that the franchise will deliver at the box office.
Variety is reporting that Homecoming is projected to earn anywhere from $85 million to $110 million during its opening weekend. The film will be showing in 4,341 North American locations, with almost 400 showing it in IMAX.
This projection is about on par with earlier reports, which predicted that the film would gross $90-100 in its debut weekend.
Homecoming marks the biggest collaboration yet between Sony and Marvel Studios, putting it in a unique position for comparisons. Although Sony has brought in higher earnings with its previous Spider-Man installments - particularly Spider-Man 3's opening gross of $151 million - this new prediction places it about on par with many other MCU outputs.
Franchise-establishing films such as Iron Man and Guardians of the Galaxy opened to $95-100 million earnings, something that Homecoming could easily achieve as well. Fans will just have to wait and see exactly how much money the film brings in this weekend.
Spider-Man: Homecoming premieres in theaters July 7.
