Having held onto top spot at the box office for a second weekend in a row, Marvel and Sony’s superhero sequel Spider-Man: Far From Home is fast closing in on $850 million at the worldwide box office – a figure it should hit today.
By close of play on Sunday, Far From Home had pulled in $847 million, with $274.5 million domestic and a further $572.5 million from international markets, leading it just $33 million short of 2017’s Spider-Man: Homecoming and $44 million shy of Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man 3, the highest-grossing Spidey movie to date.
Far From Home looks likely to surpass the $1 billion dollar mark by the end of the month, meaning it will be the third Marvel Studios movie of 2019 to do so after Captain Marvel and Avengers: Endgame, capping an unbelievably successful year for the MCU.
Peter Parker returns in Spider-Man: Far From Home, the next chapter of the Spider-Man: Homecoming series! Our friendly neighborhood Super Hero decides to join his best friends Ned, MJ, and the rest of the gang on a European vacation. However, Peter’s plan to leave super heroics behind for a few weeks are quickly scrapped when he begrudgingly agrees to help Nick Fury uncover the mystery of several elemental creature attacks, creating havoc across the continent!
Spider-Man: Far From Home 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.
