'Spider-Man: Homecoming' Suffers MCU's Worst Second-Weekend Drop Ever
 

 
image

Sony’s Spider-Man: Homecoming isn’t remotely a flop. Yet the $175 million-budgeted Marvel Cinematic Universe entry earned another $45.2m in its second weekend of release and has now earned $208.27m in ten days. But the film did drop 61% in its second weekend, identical to the second-weekend drops for Spider-Man 3 and The Amazing Spider-Man 2. And that $45m weekend figure, from a $117m opening weekend, is identical to the $45m third weekend of Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man (in 2002) and the second weekend of Spider-Man 2 (coming off an $88m Fri-Sun/$180m Wed-Mon debut in 2004).


So, barring some catch-up legs over the next month, we’re looking at an identical multiplier to Amazing Spider-Man 2 ($202 million/$91m) and Spider-Man 3 ($336m/$151m). That will lead to a domestic total almost identical to the $262m cume of The Amazing Spider-Man (from a $137m Tues-Sun debut) back in 2012. And adjusted for inflation, it will be noticeably fewer tickets sold than that 2012 reboot. And if the second-weekend figure holds up, the 61.3% drop will be the worst ever for a Marvel Cinematic Universe title.

Now, to be fair, the $117 million opening weekend was among the MCU’s biggest outside of the May summer kick-off blow-outs, second to Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 among MCU films that didn’t open in early May. And we’re still looking at a film that may end up the summer’s third-biggest domestic grosser, give or take Despicable Me 3. And it cost a lot less than the $235-$255m budgets of the last two Amazing Spider-Man movies, and it was well-liked enough that a sequel should at least hold down the fort comparatively.

But, for all the talk about how adding Spider-Man to the MCU and bringing along Robert Downey Jr.’s Iron Man would goose the franchise, that clearly didn’t happen (for one thing, Tony’s interactions with Peter were more interest in Civil War). And frankly, I never thought it would, since at the end of the day folks who were uber-excited about the MCU were mostly the same folks who would flock to any Spider-Man movie on opening weekend. Moreover, the MCU effect arguably canceled out those who had given up on the franchise after Amazing Spider-Man 2 or had their fill of Spidey movies.

It was more about stopping the bleeding than goosing the IP. Now the good news is that it’s doing well overseas ($260 million overseas for a $468m with plenty of territories, including China, still to come) and, again, folks liked the Tom Holland/Michael Keaton/Zendaya movie so the IP is in better health than it was a month ago. Oh, and Baby Driver is making a run at $100m domestic, but I digress. In the end, Spider-Man: Homecoming was the Steve Jobs of superhero reboots. Like The Incredible Hulk, Marvel made a seemingly more commercial and acclaimed package but still got a relatively similar result.

I think this is more likely Spidey exhaustion than bad WOM... We'll see.

Everyone went to see the apes this weekend, nothing else is really coming out this summer, so they should be good. Dunkirk and atomic blonde maybe, but won't gross like that.

May through July, there are back-to-back big time releases every week every summer and you don't see other movies that were well liked taking falls like that. Not sure if it's sequel fatigue or Spider-Man fatigue, but something is up here.

Origin stories can be tough for superhero movies. Especially ones that have been rebooted over and over. They got Spidey into the mcu, put together a young and developing Peter storyline, and they managed to save the big bads for later. They'll have the flexibility to be more adventerous in the next.

Origin fatigue I think. This will be our third time watching a young Peter grow into his powers. Sequels will probably involve more stakes for Spidey which will bring more fan investment

"Things aren't looking too bad for the wall-crawler, though, as its current domestic gross is $208.3 million. What that means is that after just two weekends, Spider-Man: Homecoming has already made more than what The Amazing Spider-Man 2 did in its entire theatrical run. That's a big improvement!"

Because a 60%+ drop is usually indicative of WOM not being good, so it's weird to see a Spider-Man movie almost everybody loved suffer such a big drop, especially with box office sales being down this year.

The movie wasn't that good. Was a cool watch but I think most people that wanted to see, saw it the first week. It won't have legs like the other summer Marvel movies.
