Spider-Man: Homecoming has opened in China, and thanks to the Chinese box office, the film has grabbed another accolade. According to Forbes, the $60-$70 million opening weekend that the Sony/Marvel movie is on track to take in will push the movie into being the biggest straight reboot ever:
"[Spider-Man: Homecoming] is already now the biggest worldwide gross for a straight reboot ever. With around $770m worldwide as of today, it has already displaced The Amazing Spider-Man ($757 million) after long ago passing the likes of Casino Royale ($599m), Man of Steel ($668m) and Star Trek ($385m)."
At the moment, Forbes says there is a decent chance that Homecoming could do $120 million at the Chinese box office, putting it above $880 million worldwide and making either Sony's third or fourth biggest film (depending on whether it passes the original Spider-Man at $889 million). There were a lot of think pieces about how the film wasn't making much money, seemingly forgetting that it came out during the embargo on western movies in China. Spider-Man: Homecoming isn't going to make a billion dollars, but it's made plenty.
Summary: Following the events of Captain America: Civil War (2016), Peter Parker attempts to balance his life in high school with his career as the web-slinging superhero Spider-Man.
