BOX OFFICE: THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 Tracking Hints At $95 Million Opening Weekend

While some fans have claimed that they're not all that desperate to see The Amazing Spider-Man 2 based on how much footage has been released for the sequel, tracking indicates that it will have a big opening in two weeks time...possibly even bigger than Captain America: The Winter Soldier!

Spider-Man is one of the world's most iconic superheroes, so perhaps it shouldn't come as too much of a surprise that The Amazing Spider-Man 2 looks set for a huge opening weekend! Despite negative buzz from some fans here on CBM and on Twitter about the huge nuber of TV spots, trailers and featurettes which have seemingly left little to see in the movie itself, The Wrap reports that the sequel's tracking indicates an opening of around $95 million. That puts it at around the same amount as Captain America: The Winter Soldier's $96 million debut, but BoxOffice.com believes that it could open to as much as $112 million. That's just the result Sony are looking for, especially as they've already dated The Amazing Spider-Man 3 for 2016 and The Sinister Six or Venom for 2018. Tracking is sometimes unreliable, so the sequel could open with more or less than the numbers above based on word of mouth and its international debut.

AH MY GAD, SOMEBADY CALL THE FIRE DEPARTMENT

There aren't even that many negative reviews, I checked and it's mostly positive to mixed so far.
themidnightking - 4/10/2014, 11:55 AM
@McNy
And it's the first movie of the official summer blockbuster season :-O
Poolio - 4/10/2014, 11:56 AM
Nah, It'll be over $100 mil for sure, the film might even hit $1 Bil or get close
MARVELPSYCHO79 - 4/10/2014, 11:56 AM
I'm not hyped for this movie at all.Some reviews make it sound like that first POS movie.
ALegendaryPanda - 4/10/2014, 11:58 AM
I'm gonna make sure to avoid this site for the next few weeks because it's gonna be spoiler city up in here!
charlie2094 - 4/10/2014, 11:58 AM
Got to be bigger than that, he's their flagship character. Surely got $100 million guaranteed at least, reckon it'll be closer to $110 for the weekend. Great numbers regardless, but would expect more from Spidey
JoJo1982 - 4/10/2014, 12:01 PM
100 million or more is for sure thing
SageMode - 4/10/2014, 12:01 PM
I was hyped about this movie, but it just dwindled after a while.
BlackIceJoe - 4/10/2014, 12:02 PM
That is a low number for being one of the biggest characters Marvel owns. I'm not sure if the reason it's that low is because it's not a Marvel studios Marvel movie. I haven't seen any really trailers on tv. I have watched most of the trailers on IMDB. Maybe that's why the number is so low. No advertisement for this movie.
MrBatmor - 4/10/2014, 12:03 PM
damn!! cap just bitch slapped spidey!!
BatManiac - 4/10/2014, 12:04 PM
I reckon it will do more, but we'll see.
BruceLeroy - 4/10/2014, 12:05 PM
Is this surprising? Spider-man will do the best box office wise out of all the superhero films this year.
Omarvls - 4/10/2014, 12:07 PM
WOW

Marvel keeps on winning

Yeah I know Sony makes Spider Man but its still Marvel

JoJo1982 - 4/10/2014, 12:09 PM
Also in other news Cap is mostly going to be in the 500 million club by next Monday
sKeemAn - 4/10/2014, 12:10 PM
Not surprising. But they will not be getting my money. Ha!!
fettastic - 4/10/2014, 12:11 PM
I can honestly say that I will not be surprised if Spider-Man opens bigger than Captain America.

Because duh.
themidnightking - 4/10/2014, 12:12 PM
@JoJo
Good. Hail Hydra.
yonny616 - 4/10/2014, 12:12 PM
Movie will make 100 million on opening weekend.
Pending - 4/10/2014, 12:12 PM
I highly doubt it.
dougieisrollingthejays - 4/10/2014, 12:14 PM
wouldn't be suprised, considering the last made 700 million
ALmazing - 4/10/2014, 12:14 PM
I'll be shocked if TASM2 open that low, a Cap movie opening higher than Spider Man movie?

TheAbomination - 4/10/2014, 12:16 PM
I don't care how much money this makes opening weekend. Shit movie.
0megaDaGod - 4/10/2014, 12:16 PM
No excuse for it not to be higher than that
ArmGunar - 4/10/2014, 12:16 PM
Great improvements from TASM1's first weekend 62M$ !
Spideyshawn - 4/10/2014, 12:16 PM
Remember the first tracking report for captain america had it at 85 million tasm2 is hitting 100 million easy.
MARVELPSYCHO79 - 4/10/2014, 12:17 PM
@JoJo Is that right?!?!Damn.That's good news.
JaySin420 - 4/10/2014, 12:19 PM
See this is exactly why I think Superman vs Batman will destroy whatever competition it has.

It didn't even matter that the first movie was pointless and this looks like a video game cause the general audience is in love with Spiderman, and I think even more so Batman.
cwarrior - 4/10/2014, 12:20 PM
that hail hydra bs is worse than arrow to the knee this generation has the worst fads i've ever seen and they're pretty pathetic

Nubase - 4/10/2014, 12:20 PM
cap america is huge in the US only, spiderman will make more money easily and will perhaps be a better movie also
MARVELPSYCHO79 - 4/10/2014, 12:20 PM
It's sad to see a guy like @JoshWilding,a huge Spidey fan,is not excited for this movie.And I don't blame him.This movie looks underwhelming.
CaptainObvious - 4/10/2014, 12:21 PM
The whole marketing team behind this movie should be fired.
ATrueHero1987 - 4/10/2014, 12:23 PM
for the 3 day weekend for TASM, it made $62 Million. $95 million is great for Spidey.

I don't think some of y'all are realistic with y'all expectations...
cwarrior - 4/10/2014, 12:24 PM
well if some of you are not then you must be because you're showing interest are you not?
thunderforce - 4/10/2014, 12:24 PM
By my rule I will not see any marvel movie in the theater if it is not made by marvel just because if everyone did that he could join the Avengers .
SuperCat - 4/10/2014, 12:25 PM
Think it will surpass those numbers. But if not, HAIL HYDRA!!!!!
ComicsBornAndBred - 4/10/2014, 12:26 PM
Its not surprising but I doubt people will see it once,twice, and three times like Cap 2. Spidey will get major back for the first maybe two weeks, maybe be number one in the world for a bit, but Cap 2 wins in the end.
Bobevanz - 4/10/2014, 12:26 PM
They care more about the general audience than us soo while we might not like it, they will. Theres more of them than us. Were outnumbered! I'll save my judgment til may
