Columbia Pictures and Marvel Studios’ Spider-Man: Homecoming earned an impressive $70.8 million in China this weekend to push its overseas total to $495.3 million. With the $327.7 million grossed domestically, Spider-Man: Homecoming has passed the $800 million mark worldwide for a total of $823 million. The film is the most profitable of the franchise (it cost $175 million to make) and has passed Spider-Man (2002) to become the second-highest grossing Spidey film behind Spider-Man 3 ($890.9 million).
A young Peter Parker / Spider-Man (Tom Holland), who made his sensational debut in Captain America: Civil War, begins to navigate his newfound identity as the web-slinging super hero in Spider-Man: Homecoming. Thrilled by his experience with the Avengers, Peter returns home, where he lives with his Aunt May (Marisa Tomei), under the watchful eye of his new mentor Tony Stark (Robert Downey, Jr.). Peter tries to fall back into his normal daily routine – distracted by thoughts of proving himself to be more than just your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man – but when the Vulture (Keaton) emerges as a new villain, everything that Peter holds most important will be threatened.
Spider-Man: Homecoming was written by Jonathan Goldstein & John Francis Daley, Jon Watts & Christopher Ford, and Chris McKenna & Erik Sommers. The film is produced by Kevin Feige and Amy Pascal, and executive produced by Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso, Patricia Whitcher, Jeremy Latcham, and Stan Lee.
The sequel to Spider-Man: Homecoming is slated for July 5, 2019.
