Midsommar has the largest indie debut of the year.
After a few weeks of films opening below expectations, Sony's Spider-Man: Far From Home (#1) swung in with a massive $93.6 million debut. And, in its wake, the film set a new record as the largest six-day opening ever for a Tuesday release. It's holiday take came in at $185 million, domestically.
The film also served as the second-widest opening of all time, debuting at 4,634 locations, and it delivered the largest Tuesday opening ever.
Now in second place, last weekend's number one film, Toy Story 4 (#2), continues to be a box office champ. The animated sequel has picked up over $300 million, domestically. It's international total now sits at over $650 million.
Though it wasn't able to debut in the top five, A24's Midsommar (#6) did open as the highest-grossing indie debut of the year. The horror flick opened at $6.56 million for the weekend and $11 million for the entire July 4th holiday calendar. The film also earned a C+ CinemaScore, which may not seem so great, but obscure and original horror films like Midsommar and director Ari Aster's first feature, Hereditary, tend to earn mixed reviews from audiences. The C+ could mean it's just divisive enough to continue drawing crowds.
Leaving the Top Ten are troubled horror reboot Child's Play (#12) and sequel hit John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum (#11).
Next weekend, Paramount releases the thriller Crawl while Fox debuts its Sundance comedy, Stuber. Neither are expected to dethrone Spider-Man.
