article imageAmazing Spider-Man swings to US box office success

The web-slinging action film The Amazing Spider-Man has been a massive hit in the US, as it rolls out into other territories this week.
The Sony produced movie opened at the US box office with $35.8 million on Tuesday July 2, according to Alt Film, and took $23.4 million on July 4, according to SFX. This was the second highest box office haul for the Independence Day holiday. The film holding the record for July 4 is Michael Bay’s Transformers, which took $29.1 million in 2007.
The Amazing Spider-Man's North American accumulated total is now £59.2 million. Sony estimate that the movie will gross $130 million in its first week. Interested readers can keep a track of the movie's takings through Box Office Mojo's regular updates.
The film has had a limited release worldwide and has taken $51.1 million from non-US territories. This total will increase substantially as the film opens in other areas, like the UK.
The Rolling Stone states that Tobey Maguire-led Spider-Man franchise grossed an estimated $2.5 billion at global box offices over the course of three movies (which began with 2002's Spider-Man).
The movie, starring Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone and directed by Marc Webb, cost, as the Hollywood Reporter notes, $220 million to produce.
