The post “Endgame” bump is looking to pay big dividends for Sony and Marvel Studios’ “Spider-Man: Far from Home.” Variety is reporting that Tom Holland’s web-slinging-sequel is currently tracking to make $154 million in its six-day July 4th opening weekend.

This projection is big news for the superhero series as that box office number would crush the $117 million “Spider-Man: Homecoming” made during its opening weekend in 2017. It would be also the biggest opening ever for the franchise, narrowly topping Sam Raimi’s “Spider-Man 3,” which opened with $151 million in 2007, though that was only a three-day frame.

“Far from Home” will debut in theaters on July 2, making it the rare film to release on a Tuesday. It is a smart move on Sony’s part, giving the highly-anticipated superhero film more room to flourish in one of the biggest box office frames of the year.

Competition is also making room for the film’s inevitable success. The only film releasing against “Spider-Man” is A24 and Ari Aster’s “Hereditary” follow-up “Midsommar,” another smaller, cheaper arthouse horror film unlikely to overlap with the Marvel film’s target audience. Releasing the week prior are “Annabelle Comes Homes” and the Beatles-themed musical “Yesterday,” while the following week will see the release of action-comedy “Stuber” and the alligators-in-a-hurricane horror film “Crawl.”

All of these are smaller releases that can still succeed while coming in well-beneath “Far from Home,” and they will also provide a variety of counter-programming options for anyone uninterested in further super-heroics.

“Spider-Man: Far from Home,” once again directed by Jon Watts, follows Peter Parker (Holland) as he continues to mourn the death of Tony Stark during a school trip to Europe. Once there, Parker is recruited by Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) and Maria Hill (Cobie Smulders) to help a traveler from another universe, Quentin Beck (Jake Gyllenhaal), with a mysterious task. Also returning for this entry are Marisa Tomei as Aunt May, Zendaya as MJ, Jon Favreau as Happy Hogan, and Jacob Batalon as Peter’s best friend, Ned.

Sony Pictures and Columbia Pictures will release “Spider-Man: Far from Home” on July 2.
