"There's a really unbelievable picture from the comics where Spider-Man is sitting on a lamppost staring at Hulk, and I think that could be a really... there's so many jokes you can make about the big green guy, so I think that would be a lot of fun".

Spider-Man: Homecoming opened with $117 million at the US box office, based on Sunday estimates.

"Spider-Man: Homecoming" opened this weekend to a jaw-dropping $125 million. For one, it's the third iteration of the character in the past 15 years - before Holland, Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire donned the Spidey suit. From 326 North American theaters this weekend the movie should make $3.7 million.

A box-office hero, Spider-Man is home again.

For "Homecoming", the studio returned to Spider-Man's teenage roots, casting Tom Holland in the part.

While it certainly helps to have someone like Tony Stark/Iron Man (Robert Downey, Jr.) to offer guidance, I would say the franchise would be primed to introduce the Kingpin, played brilliantly by Vincent D'Onofrio on Daredevil into the fold. This is less than both 2015's Minions and 2013's Despicable Me 2, which saw drops of 57.4 and 47.4 percent, and earnings of $49.2 million and $43.9 million, respectively. Sony puts the budget at $175 million. This brings the film's total domestic earnings to $56.9 million, making the music-driven heist movie Wright's highest earning film yet.

"Homecoming" is the only major release this weekend, so the rest of the top five are made up to familiar faces.

This is yet another Marvel movie release that has managed to capture the approval of critics and audience members - something the DC Extended Universe could not claim until this summer with "Wonder Woman". 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.

"Transformers: The Last Knight" finishes as No. 5, taking in just under $2 million on Friday. The anticipated opening weekend is higher than industry estimates, which were in the $90 million to $110 million range, while the studio cautiously pegged it at $80 million. Landing at No. 8, the movie stars Silicon Valley's Kumail Nanjiani and Zoe Kazan (Ruby Sparks) as a couple who fall and love and break up when he can't tell his conservative Muslim parents that he doesn't want an arranged marriage.

Internationally it added an estimated $6.8 million to its total for a global tally topping $745 million. $10.6 million of the domestic total came from 392 Imax screens. Meanwhile, A24's "A Ghost Story" starring Rooney Mara and Casey Affleck should spook $105,000 from four locations during its opening frame.

Overall, the summer box office stands at about $2.3 billion, or 8% lower than previous year. Check out the July 7-9 box office figures below.
