Independent trackers agree with a $150-160 million opening, but analysts who spoke with TheWrap said that they believe a $180 million start is possible.
"Sony's Spider-Man Far from Home posters just keep getting better wow", one user captioned their homemade poster, while another wrote cheekily, "The Spider-Man: Far from Home poster creators are at it again".
Following the events of Avengers: Endgame, Spider-Man must step up to take on new threats in a world that has changed forever. So these projections are based on a six-day Independence Day weekend, whereas Homecoming opened the Friday after July 4, and ended its first six days with a little over $144 million. But regardless, it will be a big leap over the opening weekend numbers of 2017's Spider-Man: Homecoming, which opened to $117 million and went on to rake in $334 million in North America and $880 million worldwide.
Similarly, Sony will accompany "Far From Home" with another original film from a well-known director: Quentin Tarantino's "Once Upon A Time In Hollywood".
That's what Tom Holland's Peter Parker does in a Spider-Man: Far From Home parody sketch from Jimmy Kimmel Live, where the Queens native goes to pick up his red and black costume from Kimmel, who plays Joe, a Mets fan with a reputation for being "the best and most gullible dry cleaner in all of NY". Fury calls on Spider-Man to sort it all out with the help of a master of illusion from another dimension named Mysterio (Jake Gyllenhaal), but the newcomer may not be all that he says he is.
