‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2’ Swings High With $92 Million Domestically
Look out! Here comes the Spider-Man.
It is an impressive figure seen by many superhero flicks as of late, but it’s slightly shy of what Marvel’s “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” grossed last month which brought in $95 million its opening weekend domestically. And it’s nowhere near the monumental success of “Iron Man 3” when it ended its opening weekend with $174 million. Nevertheless, it’s still an impressive amount, but one might wonder how much better the the film would have performed if it opened the season instead of riding the simmered, but not dead hype of “The Winter Soldier.”
“Spider-Man” films have always been a lucrative property for Sony and something they are banking on at this point.
“It’s just been stunning results across-the-board worldwide. We had only one day in China, and it’s been a huge one,” said Sony worldwide distribution topper Rory Bruer. “It’s all going to add up nicely.”
In terms of critical reception, the film hasn’t seen the highest scores, displaying an underwhelming 53 on Metacritic.
So, first out of the gate was Marvel, now we have Sony and next up is Fox with “X-Men: Days of Future Past” (directed by Bryan Singer who’s facing issues we won’t get into) which is coming out May 23, 2014 in the US. We are hot and heavy in the middle of comic-book movie season and with Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy” set for Aug. 1 (USA), it’s going to be an exciting three months.
