“Spider-Man: Far From Home” did a vigorous $27 million+ on Wed., breaking the record for Marvel properties Wednesdays. Yes, that’s a record they’re keeping track of
Add that today to the stupid money the latest webslinger outing pulled in on Tuesday — $39 million — and Sony is looking at having $150 million in the box office bank by midnight Sunday.
Yes, it’s tailing off, but not before it comes out of the gate at a dead sprint. An $80 million weekend to go with the $66 million first two days and it’ll clear $150 with ease.
The grisly but not that frightening horror tale “Midsommar” had middling Tuesday night previews numbers — $1.2 million — and a decent Wed. and looks to have about $13 million in the bank by midnight Sunday. Not a dazzling take for a creepy movie that’s more about grief and haplessness in the face of cultish groupthink, it’s generating some of the more loopy, off-message reviews of the summer.
“Yesterday” is generating decent word of mouth and expects to have a strong second weekend — maybe $10 million or more.
