BOX OFFICE: THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 Takes $35.5M On Friday; $90+M Weekend Expected

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 took a little less than expected yesterday, but it's believed that the Marc Webb helmed sequel will still earn upwards of $90 million this weekend. However, that all depends on how well it does today, and its debut in China could ultimately prove to be far more important...


We have a box office update on The Amazing Spider-Man 2 for you today, with a confirmed Friday haul of $35.5 million. That puts it on track for a weekend debut of anywhere between $90 million to $92 million, with $94+ million possible depending on whether moviegoers flock to go and see it today. Sony are apparently quite anxious to see how well the sequel performs, especially with a long running time and a whopping budget of $225 million (as well as around $190 million spent on marketing). The Amazing Spider-Man 2 has only two weekends to make a mark in North America before Godzilla stomps into theaters. It's difficult to compare The Amazing Spider-Man's debut with this follow-up as the reboot opened ahead of the July 4th holiday. In 2002, Sam Raimi's Spider-Man opened to $114.8 million on the same May weekend and ended up with $403.7 million in total compared to The Amazing Spider-Man's $262 million. However, all eyes are on China where the sequel opens tomorrow. With so much spent on the sequel, the studio are hoping that it can make its numbers up overseas in order to at least gross the same worldwide as 2012's instalment.
