Opening This Week - July 7, 2017

Wide Releases:


Spider-Man: Homecoming

Directed by: Jon Watts
Runtime: 2hrs, 13mins
Action, Adventure, Sci-Fi
PG-13
Trailer

Starring: Tom Holland, Michael Keaton, Robert Downey Jr., Marisa Tomei, Jon Favreau, Gwyneth Paltrow, Donald Glover



The second of Marvel's three films for 2017 hits this weekend. It's also the first Marvel-made Spider-Man movie (with Disney having reacquired the rights to the character from Sony) as evidenced by Tony Stark's (Robert Downey Jr.) fairly prominent role in the film and the fairly "on-the-nose" subtitle: "Homecoming." I'm not a big fan of the character personally, but judging from his brief role in Captain America: Civil War, Tom Holland may be the definitive representation of the character. It certainly doesn't hurt that Marvel generally knows how to handle their characters better than anyone else.

As for the box office, will audiences be up for whatever the latest Marvel movie is? or is a third take on the character, and a sixth Spider-Man film, in 15 years too much too fast? Considering the disastrous way both the Toby Maguire and Andrew Garfield series' ended I fear the latter may be the case. However, Marvel movies always do well and it doesn't have any competition opening in wide release this week, so hopefully I'm wrong.
