Spider-Man Gets Exterminated, Drops to 2nd
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 has fallen to 2nd place, in its second weekend at the North American box office. The film plummeted 59% and earned an estimated $37.2 million for the weekend. That brings its two week domestic total to $147.9 million. That’s the lowest 14 day total out of the five Spider-Man films.
Spider-Man was knocked from the top spot by Neighbors, which opened with a much stronger than expected debut. The film earned $51.1 million which is impressive for the R-rated movie as it was expected to earn $35 million. That film cost $18 million to make compared to $250 million for Spider-Man 2 (which doesn’t include marketing).
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 has earned $550.9 million worldwide, which Sony describes as “exceeding our goals.”
Captain America: The Winter Soldier, earned an additional $5.6 million this weekend and was in fifth place. For the six weeks the film has been opened, the movie has earned just shy of $245 million domestically and a total of $695,597,000 worldwide.
