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. In case you somehow missed it, you can check out my spoiler-free review of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 by clicking here.

I liked both Cap 2 and this. They were two very different superheroes so they both had two very different movies
ALegendaryPanda - 4/17/2014, 6:11 PM
*grabs camera and chases after both of them*

Just gonna leave that there. :)
0megaDaGod - 4/17/2014, 6:22 PM
We read it in the article, but thanks Josh
AlexanderLykins - 4/17/2014, 6:23 PM
It's a popcorn flick. It'll make enough to get a sequel, unfortunately.
Chloefornication - 4/17/2014, 6:23 PM
Tiny web hand. TINY WEB HAND. Jesus [frick]ing christ. That's all I'll say for now.
staypuffed - 4/17/2014, 6:23 PM
I don't care what Rotten Tomatoes says, or IMDb, or Metacritic, or whatever. I absolutely loved it.
staypuffed - 4/17/2014, 6:24 PM
Plus, it's not even out in the States, so there wouldn't be a zillion reviews anyway.
Mercwitham0uth - 4/17/2014, 6:25 PM
Got you you bastard!!

*Throws right hook at staypuffed*
UltimateHunt - 4/17/2014, 6:26 PM
Thats wa-sup.
Im glad CBM's are dominating. (Although too early for TASM2)
staypuffed - 4/17/2014, 6:26 PM
[ducks] gasp!
AlexanderLykins - 4/17/2014, 6:27 PM
@staypuffed
I think that's the point. It's score is going to drop. Not that it matters at all.
Mrcool210 - 4/17/2014, 6:27 PM
doesn't matter what any critic says, im going to see it for myself, if i like it good, if i hate it then thats bad. im hoping for the former
UltimateHunt - 4/17/2014, 6:27 PM
@Stay
You seen it?
I have a question, is 2 hours 30 mins feels long?
I like its that long. More Spidey time
aztecRaingod - 4/17/2014, 6:28 PM
Looks like a shit movie, hopefully it proves me wrong.
Pasto - 4/17/2014, 6:28 PM
*Grabs porn stash and chases after everyone*
KidGoku - 4/17/2014, 6:29 PM
RT gave Superman Returns a 75% so their opinion is invalid. I'm sure I'm gonna love this myself.
UltimateHunt - 4/17/2014, 6:29 PM
Actually its only this site that its getting split reviews (which is no more than 10) [lol]
Well see
SpiderFraud - 4/17/2014, 6:29 PM
Man of Steel has a 56% and I love that movie...seems like TASM2 might be the same thing again.
KidGoku - 4/17/2014, 6:29 PM
*charges Spirit Bomb for 20 episodes*
staypuffed - 4/17/2014, 6:29 PM
BlackJack
Buddy, you made it!

UltimateHunt
It's long because there are lot of characters and plot threads they deal with. Maybe it drags on for a little bit, but only a bit.
bobevanz - 4/17/2014, 6:30 PM
You guys are hilarious. I could watch this all day
Mercwitham0uth - 4/17/2014, 6:31 PM
That does it!!

Egon, Ray, Winston! Turn on your Proton Packs! Let's fry us a marshmallow!
Pasto - 4/17/2014, 6:32 PM
Would you like to talk about our lord and savior Jesus Christ?
Arrowhead77 - 4/17/2014, 6:32 PM
one of my friends told me Green Lantern was a better movie than The Amazing Spider Man 2
UltimateHunt - 4/17/2014, 6:32 PM
Staypuffed
Oh alright, thats goood. as long as there is no obvious plot holes and the time is well used. If it drags a bit im cool about it
DrDoom - 4/17/2014, 6:33 PM
I've convinced about one hundred people to not go see this film.

I wish I could get more.

True Spidey fans reject Garfield ^_^
Mercwitham0uth - 4/17/2014, 6:34 PM
STAY OUT OF THIS BLACKJACK OR I'LL BEAT YOU LIKE ROBERT DENIRO DID!!!

0megaDaGod - 4/17/2014, 6:34 PM
*Sees Blackjack's gun*

*Runs*

*Sees Pasto running behind me beating his meat*

*Runs faster*

*Sees SonGoku charging his spirit bomb*

*Maintains current speed* (I've got at least another 19 episodes and countless bits of poorly dubbed dialogue to go before that thing goes off)
bobevanz - 4/17/2014, 6:34 PM
*Watches mystified by all this ruckus while smoking a blunt giggling like a gremlin*

I was going to write a review, but I honestly can't be bothered. I'm going to stick up for this film, though. It deserves the praise.

won't be the best CBM of the year, but will make the most
