BOX OFFICE: THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN Hits $75 Million Domestically
The Amazing Spider-Man remains at the top of the North American box office despite people now being back in work after the July 4th celebrations. Hit the jump for details on its current domestic cume and what analysts are now predicting it will have made by the weekend.
The Hollywood Reporter has posted the latest figures for Marc Webb's reboot of the Sony Pictures franchise, The Amazing Spider-Man. $15.8 million yesterday means that it has now made a domestic total of $75 million as it held off competition from Katy Perry: Part of Me (which opened with a forgettable $3.1 million for the #5 spot. The superhero movie (starring Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone and Rhys Ifans) is currently expected to earn somewhere between $125 million and $140 million during its six day run, although no one seems quite certain how well it will perform this weekend. However, The Amazing Spider-Man is now open in virtually every territory and may very well end up hitting $250 million worldwide by close of business on Sunday.
The Amazing Spider-Man is the story of Peter Parker (Garfield), an outcast high schooler who was abandoned by his parents as a boy, leaving him to be raised by his Uncle Ben (Sheen) and Aunt May (Field). Like most teenagers, Peter is trying to figure out who he is and how he got to be the person he is today. Peter is also finding his way with his first high school crush, Gwen Stacy (Stone), and together, they struggle with love, commitment, and secrets. As Peter discovers a mysterious briefcase that belonged to his father, he begins a quest to understand his parents' disappearance - leading him directly to Oscorp and the lab of Dr Curt Connors (Ifans), his father's former partner. As Spider-Man is set on a collision course with Connors' alter-ego, The Lizard, Peter will make life-altering choices to use his powers and shape his destiny to become a hero.
