JULY 6 UPDATE: Columbia Pictures executives have revised their projections and are forecasting a higher $176.6m six-day North American opening weekend for Spider-Man: Far From Home after a $32.5m haul on Friday boosted the running total to $124m.

If the projection for North America holds, Far From Home would overtake Beauty And The Beast on $174.8m to rank 11th on the all-time roster. Captain America: Civil War ranks tenth on $179.1m.
