"Spider-Man: Far From Home" - Keeping Avengers Fans Happy

Of course, Spider-Man wouldn't actually be all that dead, yet Kraven didn't care. If you need any proof, have a look at Spider-Man: Far From Home's massive box office numbers.

As the first movie in the wake of Avengers: Endgame, interest was expected to high, particularly with it closing out Phase 3 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and setting up the future of the MCU.

Speaking to Uproxx about which classic Spider-Man villain he'd like to put up against Tom Holland's Wall-crawler in the inevitable Far From Home follow-up, Watts enthused, "Oh, I would love Kraven". That would normally be an issue, except Far From Home, unlike Homecoming, burned off demand with a pre-weekend launch. It also marks Sony Pictures' biggest six-day opening weekend ever.

Oh, also worth mentioning that Far From Home has already hit $580 million worldwide after just ten days of release, so it's a foregone conclusion that this title will crack $1 billion worldwide. "And there'll be lots of questions like, what was Captain Marvel up to in the 20-plus years between when she flew away at the end of Captain Marvel to when she appears in Endgame?".

"This movie was exactly the shot in the arm the summer needed, emotionally and spiritually if not financially", said Dergarabedian, who noted the weekend overall was roughly equal to the same time frame past year.

Ghani's administration, which the Taliban consider a puppet regime, has also been excluded from the direct US-Taliban talks. Suhail Shaheen, the spokesman for the Taliban's office in Qatar, said they were pleased with the U.S. discussions so far.

Perhaps just as cheering for the industry is how well a number of films are holding. It has now taken in $650 million globally. In third, at US$10.8 million, was the Beatles-themed alternate-universe romantic comedy Yesterday, directed by Danny Boyle.

The Warner Bros. Conjuring spin-off sequel Annabelle Comes Home snagged $10.8 million in its second weekend.

In fifth was Disney's live-action remake of "Aladdin", taking in $7.5 million in its seventh week out.

The web-slinging adventurer easily dominated ticket sales over the weekend, delivering a US$185 million debut from 4,636 venues from its first six days in theatres. Where available, the latest global numbers for Friday through Sunday are also included.
