Box Office: “Spider Man” close to $120, “Despicable” passes “Cars 3”

boxHuge opening weekend for the umpteenth “Spider-Man” movie, “Spider-Man: Homecoming.” Thursday night and Friday numbers point to a $125 opening, per 

A $50 million Friday for the film, adding the webslinger to the Marvel/Avengers universe, points to an opening surpassing the $100-110 predicted opening.

“Baby Driver” is holding over half its audience, still, $13 million  is less than the $15 million predicted, but no worries.

“Transformers: The Last Knight” is plummeting. “Despicable Me 3″ is already past “Cars 3” in the summer animation sweepstakes.  Pixar should take this as a warning. 

“47 Meters Down” will clear $40 million by next weekend. “The Beguiled” will be out of the top ten by next weekend.

And “The Big Sick” cracked the top ten despite only being on under 400 screens nationwide.
