Spider-Man: Far From Home remained at the top of the box office for another weekend, putting it just shy of $850 million worldwide for two weeks out while Crawl defeated Stuber in the battle of the R rated new releases.
After the awe-inspiring events of Avengers: Endgame earlier this year, Spider-Man: Far From Home feels like the vacation that guides the plot of the movie, fun and funny but also still dealing with the lingering effects of Endgame.
Spider-Man ably followed up the juggernaut that was Avengers: Endgame with a record-shattering six-day opening over the July 4th holiday weekend while Midsommar opened to around half as much as Ari Aster’s last film, Hereditary.
This week on the podcast, Zach and Chris talk about the new, spoilery Spider-Man: Far From Home trailer, HBO’s upcoming Watchmen show, the first trailer for IT: Chapter Two, Into the Dark, Hello Mary Lou: Prom Night II, Cliffhanger and more.
Following the events of Avengers: Endgame, Peter Parker is recruited by Nick Fury to help him and a mysterious visitor from another Earth stop The Elementals, a group of powerful villains that are wreaking havoc on cities across Europe.
Peter is interrupted on his class trip to Europe by none other than Nick Fury, who recruits Spider-Man to help deal with the threat of the Elementals and the villainous Mysterio in July’s Spider-Man: Far From Home.
