The second solo adventure for Tom Holland's Peter Parker is feeling the Avengers Endgame effect around the world with a massive worldwide debut of more than $395 million for a global opening week (end) of $580 million.

Directed by Jon Watts, Spider-Man: Far From Home also stars Samuel L Jackson, Jake Gyllenhaal and Zendaya.

"Spider-Man: Far From Home" set a number of records this week, including biggest Tuesday ticket sales of all time (US$38 million), best Wednesday grosses for a Marvel movie (US$27 million) and the second-largest Fourth of July holiday (US$25 million).

Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst for Comscore, thinks Far From Home may have turned the tide. Produced on a reported budget of $26 million, the fantasy rom-com will have good legs for the rest of the summer.

Internationally, Far From Home has pulled in an estimated US$395 million so far.

Disney and Pixar's Toy Story 4 slipped into second place, bringing in $34.3 million and pushing it past $300 million domestically with a $306.6 million U.S. total.

Dollar is buoyed by declining bets on big Fed rate cuts
United States futures pointed to a lower opening for Wall Street, with E-Minis for the S&P500 at -0.2%. The dollar strengthened 0.18% to 108.67 yen after hitting 108.73, which was the highest since June 11.

Demand Worries Outweighing Iran Concerns
While U.S. -China discussions are starting up again, the White House has warned that reaching an agreement will take time. Production cuts, in particular, "increase the likelihood that USA imports remain historically low and U.S".

Boosted by solid reviews, "Spider-Man: Far From Home" also benefited as the must-see follow-up to the epic finale that was "Avengers: Endgame". Taking an estimated $10.9 million for its five-day weekend, Midsommar is the first horror since Jordan Peele's Us to be worthy of the hype.

Universal's Beatles tribute "Yesterday" notched the third place with 10.7 million dollars sales for the weekend.

Aladdin collected an estimated $7.6 million over the weekend, lifting its domestic earnings to upwards of $320 million.

The Warner Bros. "Conjuring" spinoff sequel "Annabelle Comes Home" snagged $10.8 million in its second weekend.

A24 nevertheless hailed the results for "Midsommar", saying "it firmly cements Aster as one of the most exciting new directors to come around in a long while".

Due in part to under-performing sequels including Godzilla: King Of Monsters and Men In Black International, the year is running 8.4% behind last year. Obviously, these aren't Avengers: Endgame numbers (not that anyone was expecting them to be), but it marks as yet another unqualified success from Marvel Studios.
