Will ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ swing into the top spot at the box office?

Following Tom Holland’s debut as Spider-Man in last year’s Captain America: Civil War, Sony and Marvel Studios bring the character to the Marvel Cinematic Universe for the first time with Spider-Man: Homecoming. Reviews have already been solid for this teen-centered film that supposedly play like a John Hughes movie with super-heroes, and Holland has a lot of good will coming his way thanks to his outstanding debut appearance beside the Avengers. Throw in Robert Downey’s Tony Stark in a supporting role, and Michael Keaton as the Vulture, and you’ve got a guaranteed number one at the box office. Look for Spider-Man: Homecoming to arrive with $120 million.

As for the rest of the top five, Despicable Me 3 will drop to second place with $35 million. Baby Driver will be in third place with $12 million. Wonder Woman will hit fourth place with $9.5 million, while Transformers: The Last Knight will close things out in fifth place with $8 million.

So, to recap, here are our predictions:

1) Spider-Man: Homecoming – $120 million
2) Despicable Me 3 – $35 million
3) Baby Driver – $12 million
4) Wonder Woman – $9.5 million
5) Transformers: The Last Night – $8 million

Be sure to check back on Sunday to see how the weekend turns out!
