The Amazing Spider-Man Swings in With Solid Opening
The Amazing Spider-Man started off with a solid six day take of an estimated $140 million including a $65 million opening weekend. Overseas, Sony’s “The Amazing Spider-Man added $129.1 million, raising its international total to $201.6 million and worldwide haul to $341.2 million since it began rolling out a week earlier in some foreign markets. That put it at the top spot for the weekend.
The movie brought in about 44 percent of it’s grosses from 3D showings, so it’s a bit harder to compare it to previous films, but it’s similar to what they did.
The movie was projected to make somewhere between $120 and $150 million, so this was at the higher end of projections, after a slow but still solid opening two days.
