BOX OFFICE: THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN Takes $23.4 Million On The 4th Of July

Marc Webb's reboot of the Spider-Man franchise has been a hit at the North American box office, taking an $23.4 million during yesterday's Independence Day celebrations. Hit the jump for details.

The Hollywood Reporter reveals that The Amazing Spider-Man made $23.4 million at the box office yesterday, taking its current total in North America to $59.3 million. While its Tuesday opening of $35 million broke records, it failed to live up to the Wednesday record total made by the original Transformers back in 2007 ($29.1 million). The site also points out the fact that Spider-Man 2 made $22 million on July 4th, 2004. With an A- CinemaScore (and an A from moviegoers under the age of 18) and mostly positive reviews, it looks like Marc Webb's reboot will be a hit for Sony Pictures.

The Amazing Spider-Man is the story of Peter Parker (Garfield), an outcast high schooler who was abandoned by his parents as a boy, leaving him to be raised by his Uncle Ben (Sheen) and Aunt May (Field). Like most teenagers, Peter is trying to figure out who he is and how he got to be the person he is today. Peter is also finding his way with his first high school crush, Gwen Stacy (Stone), and together, they struggle with love, commitment, and secrets. As Peter discovers a mysterious briefcase that belonged to his father, he begins a quest to understand his parents' disappearance - leading him directly to Oscorp and the lab of Dr Curt Connors (Ifans), his father's former partner. As Spider-Man is set on a collision course with Connors' alter-ego, The Lizard, Peter will make life-altering choices to use his powers and shape his destiny to become a hero.
