Highlights
  • Spider-Man: Far From Home released July 4 in India
  • Its global box office total stands at $847 million
  • Avengers: Endgame is now at $2.78 billion

Spider-Man: Far From Home added $145.3 million (about Rs. 995.88 crores) over this past weekend at the worldwide box office, taking its global total close to $850 million (about Rs. 5,825 crores). In just two weekends, the newest chapter in the Marvel Cinematic Universe has come close to the record for the highest-grossing Spider-Man movie of all time — 2007's Spider-Man 3 ($890.8 million) — which it should have a good shot at achieving considering its 17-day performance. For now, it's the third highest-grossing Spider-Man movie, behind its direct predecessor Spider-Man: Homecoming ($880.2 million) and Spider-Man 3, and the fourth if you count spin-offs: Venom ($856 million).

While Sony Pictures' Marvel Studios co-production was ruling the worldwide box office, Disney-Pixar's excellent Toy Story 4 finished a fair bit behind to claim the runner-up spot for this weekend, with $68.76 million (about Rs. 471.37 crores) globally. New markets this weekend included Japan ($15.3 million) and Hong Kong ($4.6 million), setting records for having the largest opening of all time for a Disney Animation / Pixar film in both. Germany (August 15) is now the only country where it has yet to release.

Toy Story 4 has now earned $771 million (about Rs. 5,285 crores) since its release, making it the second highest-grossing Toy Story film of all time behind Toy Story 3 ($1.067 billion), and the seventh highest-grossing Pixar movie of all time, behind Coco ($807.1 million), Inside Out ($857.6 million), Finding Nemo ($899.2 million), Finding Dory ($1.028 billion), Toy Story 3, and Incredibles 2 ($1.242 billion).
