Spider-Man: Far from Home proves that the MCU has an audience even without Iron Man and Captain America. The film opened to nearly $600 million worldwide this past week, and is well on its way to becoming the first $1 billion dollar Spider-Movie. Not to be deterred, Toy Story 4 managed to continue with a solid third week haul of its own. While not a Disney affiliated property, Yesterday managed to find legs of its own and raked in an additional $10 million. However, the number four spot was occupied by Annabelle Comes Home, a film that is quickly losing its franchise legs. The top five was once again rounded out by a Disney property, with Aladdin (2019) going strong in its seventh week since release.
In other news, Midsommar also opened this week to a cool $6 million. Avengers: Endgame took advantage of the Spider-Mania and climbed up in the rankings. And, last but not least, X-Men: Dark Phoenix has officially surpassed Fantastic Four (2015) as the largest Marvel flop.
All of these topics and more were a part of this week’s episode of The MovieBabble Podcast.
