  • Marisa Tomei hasn't heard anything about Spider-Man sequel

That's a great start for Sony's second reboot, but it's still not enough to unseat the wall-crawler's top opener to date: Spider-Man 3 (2007), with $151.1 million.

As per analysts, the movie was expected to make $90-$110 million on its opening day at the global box office.

"Spider-Man: Homecoming" opened this weekend to a jaw-dropping $125 million.

The film kicks off the third Spider-Man iteration in the last 15 years, following The Amazing Spider-Man, which starred Andrew Garfield.

Spider-Man is officially a box office overachiever.

It also co-stars Michael Keaton as the villain Vulture and Robert Downey Jr.as Spider-Man's mentor, Iron Man. Also featured in the movie are Donald Glover, Martin Starr, and Hannibal Burress.

"Homecoming" is the only major release this weekend, so the rest of the top five are made up to familiar faces. Wright has had box office troubles in the past - let us never forget the criminally underappreciated Scott Pilgrim vs. -D.C. Comics release "Wonder Woman". "Wonder Woman" continued to impress with an additional $10 million in its sixth weekend, which brings its domestic receipts to a staggering $370 million and counting. Internationally, WW has surpassed Suicide Squad's $745.6 million worldwide haul, making Batman v Superman, with its $873.3 million total, the only other DCEU movie ahead of it. However, when Kazan's American grad student Emily falls into a coma, Nanjiani's Pakistani stand-up comedian begins to bond with her parents Terry and Beth (Ray Romano and Holly Hunter).
