With a combined $3.6 billion and counting from Captain Marvel and Avengers: Endgame, 2019 has already proven itself to be a fantastic year at the box office for the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but it isn’t over just yet.
This July sees the release of the Marvel and Sony co-production Spider-Man: Far From Home, and early box office estimates are suggesting that the Tom Holland-headlined solo sequel can expect a nice Endgame bump when it opens across the Fourth of July holiday weekend in the States.
According to Box Office Pro, Far From Home can expect to pull in between $190 million and $230 million from its six-day opening (it hits cinemas on a Tuesday), with between $90 and $120 million over the Friday-Sunday period.
For comparison, Spider-Man: Homecoming debuted with $117 million on its way to a domestic haul of $334.2 million and $880.2 million worldwide. With that in mind, and the fact that Far From Home offers our first glimpse of the MCU post-Snap, then don’t be surprised if these early box office forecasts prove to be on the low end…
Spider-Man: Far From Home will be released on July 2nd and features the return of Tom Holland (Spider-Man), Marisa Tomei (Aunt May), Zendaya (Michelle), Jacob Batalon (Ned Leeds), Angourie Rice (Betty Brant), Tony Revolori (Flash Thompson), Martin Star (Mr. Harrington), Samuel L. Jackson (Nick Fury) and Cobie Smulders (Maria Hill), with Jake Gyllenhaal (Nightcrawler) as Mysterio and J.B. Smoove (Uncle Drew), Remy Hii (Crazy Rich Asians) and Numan Acar (Homeland) in undisclosed roles.
