'Spider-Man: Far From Home' Almost Featured A Mysterio Skrull Twist

‘Crawl’ Chomps on ‘Stuber’ on Their Opening Weekend

You might remember the Spider-Man: Far From Home cast's appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live back in May, in which Tom Holland and the rest joked about the confusing state of the MCU timeline following Avengers: Endgame. We see Nick Fury (Samuel L Jackson) and Maria Hill (Cobie Smulders) drive away only to slowly transform into the shapeshifting Skrull Talos and his wife Soren, whom we previously met in Captain Marvel.

The movie is on pace to become the highest-grossing "Spider-Man" movie of all time ("Spider-Man 3" is the the top to date with $891 million worldwide).

The superhero tentpole collected another $45 million, boosting domestic grosses to $274 million.

The 23rd adventure in the Marvel Cinematic Universe has crossed the $800 million mark worldwide, with box office receipts at $847 million.

"Crawl" secured the best start among fresh offerings, but neither newcomer managed to pack theaters.

Paramount Pictures' creature feature Crawl opened in third place for the weekend, debuting with an estimated $12 million which just about covers the film's reported budget of $13.5 million. Alexandre Aja directed "Crawl", which stars Kaya Scodelario and Barry Pepper. A majority of ticket buyers were between the ages of 18 and 44. Internationally the movie brought in $4.8 million, giving it a global opening of $16.8 million.

Marvel and Sony's second solo movie starring Tom Holland as the wall-crawling superhero is on track to sell an estimated $45.3 million in tickets in the US and Canada from Friday through Sunday, topping the box office for the second weekend in a row while easily holding off newcomers Crawl and Stuber. In "Stuber", Nanjiani plays an Uber driver who unwittingly becomes part of a his passenger's (Bautista) arrest operation.

A number of holdovers filled out domestic box office charts.

Disney's "Toy Story 4" also beat the new releases, bringing in another $20.6M across 4,210 locations.

Danny Boyle's Beatles-inspired movie Yesterday slipped into fifth place, dropping just 32.9% and bringing in $6.75 million and giving it a domestic total of $48.3 million.
