Weekend Movie Review: Spider-Man swings through with record-breaking weekend. Toy Story 4: Distant Second

“Spider-Man: Far From Home” had a record-breaking debut over the Independence Day weekend. Marvel’s latest superhero flick starring Tom Holland and Jake Gyllenhaal raked in more than the original $125-million estimated – $93-million over the three-day weekend and a whopping $185-million since being released early on Tuesday.

The movie shattered the record for best six-day opener of all time, but it could break another big record…. It’s well on its way to becoming the high-grossing “Spider-Man” movie of all time, a title currently held by 2007’s “Spider-Man 3” starring Toby Maguire, with a worldwide gross of almost $900-million.

‘Toy Story 4″ came in at a distant second place bringing in $34.3 million starting the All-Star cast of Tom Hanks and Tim Allen. Disney / Pixar brought our favorite toys back and took us on the road.

“Midsommar” had a pretty solid debut for a horror movie, debuting in the sixth spot with $6-point-six-million over the weekend and $10-point-nine-million over six days. Fans had high hopes for the movie after the success of Ari Aster’s previous flick “Hereditary” last year, but “Midsommar” fell short of “Hereditary’s” impressive opening take.

Here’s this weekend’s top 10 movies:

  1. “Spider-Man: Far From Home” – $93.6-million
  2. “Toy Story 4” – $34.3-million
  3. “Yesterday” – $10.8-million
  4. “Annabelle Comes Home” – $9.8-million
  5. “Aladdin” – $7.6-million
  6. “Midsommar” – $6.6-million
  7. “The Secret Life Of Pets 2” – $4.8-million
  8. “Men In Black International” – $3.6-million
  9. “Avengers: Endgame” – $3.1-million
  10. “Rocketman” – $2.8-million

With all the great movies we had to choose from this weekend… we have to give credit where credit is due. Marvel’s Avengers: Endgame is still going strong and in the Top 10. What was your favorite so far?
