Some love it, some hate it, but The Amazing Spider-Man 2 has kicked off its run at the international box office with a very impressive $5.5 million. The sequel opened in 15 territories yesterday, with the four countries above logging their biggest opening days of 2014. In the UK - where kids are currently on a two-week school break for Easter - the Marc Webb helmed follow-up to The Amazing Spider-Man took an impressive $2.73 million. Its predecessor earned a total of $40.3 million there, making it one of the most important international territories for Sony. There are only a handful of reviews on Rotten Tomatoes right now (Captain America: The Winter Soldier has 222 in comparison to The Amazing Spider-Man 2's 37), so how word of mouth from those overseas and the verdict from US critics impact its domestic opening in May remain to be seen.
