“Spider-Man: Homecoming” apparently fared well at the box office this weekend.

According to Box Office Mojo, the film delivered a $117 million opening domestically. That’s not too shabby for the web-headed wall-crawler, especially since this is the third cinematic foray for the character in recent memory.

Let’s take a quick look at recent history.

Back in 2002, Sam Raimi directed “Spider-Man,” with Tobey Maguire playing the titular role. Two sequels followed, including “Spider-Man 2” in 2004; and “Spider-Man 3” in 2007. Additional films in this series were in the works, but disagreements between Sony and Raimi eventually saw those scrapped.

The superhero war continues, its skirmishes fought on the big screen.

Warner Bros. Pictures keeps churning them out, movie after movie, tenaciously trying to catch up to the lucrative commercial juggernaut of the ever-expanding Marvel Cinematic Universe and best its longtime rival in terms of quality and box office revenue. The most recent chapter in this ongoing competition showcases DC’s iconic character Wonder Woman in her own feature film.

Thanks in large part to Gal Gadot’s exceptional performance in the lead role, “Wonder Woman” is by far the best film audiences have seen in the DC Extended Universe. In a world where moviegoers are growing weary of superhero origin stories, “Wonder Woman” is as stylish, dazzling and action-packed as it is heartfelt and inspirational.

Looking at this summer’s cavalcade of wannabe blockbusters, it is evident that many aren’t exactly suitable for the youngest members of the family.

Fortunately, Hollywood hasn’t completely ignored that demographic. In fact, filmmakers - and those who invest in their films - are keenly aware that there is still money to be made at the box office with family-friendly films this summer. Last year, such films fared extremely well, with “Finding Dory” (PG), “The Secret Life of Pets” (PG), “The Jungle Book” (PG), “Zootopia” (PG) and “Sing” (PG) all ranking in the top 10 on Box Office Mojo’s 2016 highest domestic grosses.

There’s this really good mom-and-pop pizzeria in your neighborhood - you’ve been there before, and the pizza is excellent. Tonight, you decide to try the calzone.

When it hits the table, you are stunned: The crispy, puffy crescent is bursting at the seams, oozing creamy mozzarella and ricotta, sausage and pepperoni. It’s an overstuffed, scrumptious masterpiece.

“Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” is that calzone - better in many ways than what came before it, but quite possibly too much to digest all at once.

Surely you've heard all the hype - this summer's procession of big-budget cinematic endeavors promises to be among the most sensational ever!

Well, that's what the marketing and publicity people want you to believe, anyway. They've proclaimed it again and again in the endless parade of teasers and trailers that Hollywood has been subjecting moviegoers to since December. They've declared it as panelists in crowded convention rooms at comic book gatherings. They've attested to their certainty by launching early merchandise tie-in campaigns - buy the toy before you see the movie!

For the last 17 years, Hugh Jackman has portrayed the mutant Wolverine, appearing in nine films connected to the X-Men franchise and helping to lay the groundwork for the parade of comic-book based superhero blockbusters that continue to excite fans and generate record-breaking revenue at the box office.

Jackman is back, reprising the iconic character that brought this Academy Award nominated actor into the spotlight. But “Logan” - the new film from director James Mangold - is something altogether different. Sure, it’s about one of the greatest comic book heroes ever created - but, with its well-deserved R-rating, its tightly focused plot, its moribund characters and its pessimistic tone, “Logan” veers off into territory that has previously been left unexplored in the superhero genre.

As usual, Hollywood’s holiday gift to the masses is an endless stream of teasers and trailers, offering glimpses of what filmmakers will deliver to cinema screens in the coming months.

The persuasive hype intensifies into a blaring buzz this time of year, compelling movie reviewers and entertainment bloggers to encapsulate the hysteria into bulleted lists that are easy to digest, like the wafer-thin mint that comes at the end of a Christmas feast.

Before trying to forecast which 2017 movies are most likely to make gazillions, let’s take a look at 2016’s most successful endeavors.

Finally, it’s here: The first of the standalone films that will add depth and context to the Star Wars franchise - a cherished treat for diehard fans and a potential indulgence for lovers of films involving ragtag teams assigned an impossible mission.

“Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” certainly fulfills its purpose as a bridge connecting two important chapters of the grand story arc created by George Lucas. It’s more than that, though. Director Gareth Edwards, working with a script by Chris Weitz and Tony Gilroy from a story by John Knoll and Gary Whitta, reveals the seedy side of the insurgency, with its lesser-known and sometimes morally ambiguous foot soldiers. “Rogue One” is about the unsung - and sometimes unsavory - heroes whose sacrifices are not customarily recorded by history.
