It blew away the industry's expectations. The movie was originally estimated to be $ 125 million from Tuesday to Sunday, according to Sony, who co-produced the superhero film with Marvel Studios.
The movie has made $ 580 million globally in the first 10 days of its release. Spidey's big opening was good news for Hollywood, because the summer movie season was in desperate need of a victory.
"This summer, Spider-Man gave the shot it needed," said Shawn Robbins, chief analyst at Boxoffice.com, CNN Business. "Far from Home & # 39; s ability to win over audiences is further evidence that audiences are just looking for good movies, successors, or otherwise."
"Far from Home", which cost $ 1
60 million to make, had strong critical reviews. It has a 92% score on the review site Rotten Tomatoes.
The film probably had a significant cash register, thanks to the follow-up to "Avengers: Endgame", which split box office took up in April.
The big opening for "Far from Home" tightens two important things ahead of the superhero genre and Marvel, Robbins said.
"Moviegoers are not burned out on Spider-Man or superhero movies, and Marvel Cinematic Universe has clearly promising life after the end of their first era in & # 39; Endgame & # 39 ;, he said.
The big storm for "Far From Home" could help turn things around at the cashier's office for the rest of the summer and maybe even the rest of the year, according to Robbins.
" half with & l39; The Lion King & # 39;, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood & # 39; and & Hobbs & Shaw & # 39; around the corner & # 39; he added. "A record year may not seem likely at this time, but we should still not write off the possibility of a major turnaround with these heavy titles and other possible sleepers still on deck."
