After 'Avengers: Endgame', 'Spider-Man: Far From Home' is the next most anticipated Marvel film which is all set to hit the theaters on July 2. However, the film has already opened in China, days ahead of its official release, and it has witnessed a phenomenal start at the box office.
As per media reports, the movie bagged over USD 30 million by mid-evening on the first day of its release in the country. The latest in the 'Spider-Man' series has already surpassed the first day collections of its predecessor 'Spider-Man: Homecoming' which made a debut opening with just USD 23 million in the Chinese markets.
