Amazing Spider-Man 2 Opens to a Swinging $92 Million
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 swung into North American theaters this past weekend and earned $92 million after a $35.5 million box office Friday. That opening is about what estimates pegged it at. The film also earned an additional $116 million overseas for a worldwide total of $369 million so far. The film has a budget north of $200 million, which means it’ll need a $500 million to break even.
Compared to Sam Raimi’s films, his first Spider-Man in 2002 opened to $114.8 million, the second opened to $88 million, and third opened to $151 million. The Amazing Spider-Man earned a total of $262 million in 2012. That movie earned $137 million over its first six days, and debuted the Tuesday before July 4th.
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 earned 43% of its total from 3-D showings and 17% from IMAX and PLF showings.
When it comes to demographics, the film had 51% under the age of 25, and 33% families for the opening weekend. The film was 61% male and 49% female. I predicted men to be between 55-60% men, so pretty close to what I expected and what Facebook statistics shows. The film also has a B+ Cinemascore and 54% on Rotten Tomatoes.
Captain America: The Winter Soldier dropped to fourth in its fifth weekend. The film earned $7.8 million, bringing its domestic total to $237.1 million.
