Sony Pictures’ “Spider-Man: Far From Home” hit the box office this week, scaring away the competition and earning the top spot on a lonely weekend. The only other film to release against Spider-Man was “Midsommar” from A24, the latest horror-thriller from Ari Aster.
Sony Pictures released “Spider-Man: Far From Home” on July 2nd, hoping to drive up interest before the Independence Day break. Over the traditional weekend, the movie brought in $93.6M across 4,634 locations and made over $185M during its first week.
The highest-opening in the Spider-Man franchise was “Spider-Man 3,” which made $151M in 2007. “Spider-Man Homecoming” has the second-highest at $117M, and “Spider-Man” holds third-place with $114M. Jon Watts directed “Spider-Man Far From Home,” which stars Tom Holland, Jake Gyllenhaal, Marisa Tomei, Zendaya, Jon Favreau, and Samuel L. Jackson.
Disney’s “Toy Story 4” dropped to second-place on the domestic charts but still brought in $34M this weekend. Now in its third week in theaters, the animated-comedy has made over $306.5M domestically. Josh Cooley directed “Toy Story 4,” which features the voice talents of Tom Hanks, Tim Allen, Annie Potts, Tony Hale, Keegan-Michael Key, Jordan Peele, Keanu Reeves, Christina Hendricks, Joan Cusack, Bonnie Hunt, and Kristen Schaal.
The comedy “Yesterday” landed in third-place, grossing $10.7M across 2,614 locations. This is the film’s second week in theaters, and the movie has a $36.8M domestic total. Danny Boyle directed “Yesterday,” and the movie stars Himesh Patel, Lily James, and Sophia Di Martino.
Warner Bros. Pictures took fourth-place with “Annabelle Comes Home,” which made another $9.7M, raising the film’s two week total to $50.1M. Gary Dauberman directed “Annabelle Comes Home,” which stars Vera Farmiga, Patrick Wilson, and Mckenna Grace.
Disney wrapped up the top five with “Aladdin,” which made $7.6M while remaining in 2,758 locations. The live-action musical released seven weeks ago and currently has a $320.7M domestic total and a $921M worldwide gross. Guy Ritchie directed “Aladdin,” and the live-action remake stars Will Smith, Naomi Scott, and Mena Massoud.
Not making the top five but worth mentioning is this week’s other new release, “Midsommar,” from A24. The horror-thriller opened in 2,707 locations and made $6.5M to take sixth-place on the charts. Ari Aster wrote and directed “Midsommar” for A24, and the film stars Florence Pugh, Jack Reynor, and Will Poulter.
The new releases this week are the horror-thriller “Crawl” with Kaya Scodelario and the action comedy “Stuber” with Dave Bautista and Kumail Nanjiani. These two films will need a big opening weekend because Disney’s “The Lion King” roars into theaters across the country the following week.
