A brief encounter in Civil War (and a highlight) we’ve since wondered how the newest addition to the MCU will fair. Now the sixth Spider-Man film and third cinema incarnation, where does Homecoming belong in the pantheon of Spider-Man 2 and Amazing Spider-Man 2? It’s fair to rank it just slightly below Spider-Man 2 as Homecoming is a delight. It’s nothing revolutionary of the genre but it’s a sure fire success for all parties involved.
Coming into the weekend there were thoughts of it being a close battle for first, however, Pitch Perfect 2 completely shattered the first projected number of around the 40 million mark and has grossed 70 million domestically. Mad Max made a respectable 44.4 million to come in at second this weekend and The Avengers: Age of Ultron rounds out the top three at third with 38.8 million. Pitch Perfect 2 also made 30 million internationally to come with a superb 100 million worldwide opening weekend.
