BOX OFFICE: THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN Beats THE DARK KNIGHT RISES In China
With no difference in ticket prices, The Amazing Spider-Man has emerged victorious in China after a week of release, although The Dark Knight Rises once again holds the #1 spot at the international box office. Hit the jump for an update on all of this and more!
As you will have more than likely heard by now, Marvel's The Avengers passed $1.5 billion at the worldwide box office today, while The Dark Knight Rises has finally hit $1 billion. However, it was the latter that battled it out in China this week with The Amazing Spider-Man, but the 3D reboot ended up coming out on top with $33.3 million to The Dark Knight Rises' $28.5 million. However, this extra boost (as well as the fact that it opened in a few other international locations including Italy) has meant that Christopher Nolan's third and final Batman movie is back at #1 at the international box office with an impressive $574 million. The Amazing Spider-Man is #2 with $475.3 million, followed by The Expendables 2, Total Recall, Brave and The Bourne Legacy. Back in North America, the following films have been confirmed as being the Top Five of the Summer.
