Cobranded with Sony Pictures in support of the Spider-Man movie's promotional partnership, and back on consumer demand, the All-In-One Box has something for everyone in the family.
Directed by Jon Watts, Spider-Man: Homecoming deals with the young Peter Parker (Tom Holland) who returns home to live with his Aunt May following his thrilling experience with the Avengers. (Wonder Woman and Guardians Vol. 2 were likewise embraced by reviewers and ticket buyers.)

Elsewhere, Universal/Illumination's "Despicable Me 3", buoyed by overseas receipts - including big openings in China, France and Germany - has grossed $447.6 million worldwide on an $80 million production budget.
Despicable Me'ssecond weekend domestic finish is an estimated $34 million. Spider-Man: Homecoming also toppled the debut of his last standalone feature, The Amazing Spider-Man 2, which opened at $91 million and ended up at $202 million during its theatrical run.

Earlier this summer, Universal's plans for its "Dark Universe" of monster movies got off to a rocky start with the poorly performing "The Mummy".
Homecoming's ranking in the Spider-Man pantheon changes when adjusting for inflation. "The silver lining is the expected continued strength of Spidey, plus 'War For The Planet of The Apes, ' 'Dunkirk, ' and 'Atomic Blonde" all in rapid succession that could fuel a much-needed late summer renaissance at the multiplex".
