‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2’ Opens #1 with $92 Million

Marc Webb’s The Amazing Spider-Man 2 opened #1 in its Domestic debut, earning a slightly underwhelming $92 million.  While it’s one of the best debut’s of the year, it’s still short of what previous Rami Spider-Man films had done.  2002′s Spider-Manearned $114.8 million and Spider-Man 3 earned $151.1 million in their opening weekend.  However, the sequel did $30 more than the original Marc Webb Spider-Man, and has an impressive $277 million overseas ($369 million worldwide total).  The sequel should pass it’s predecessors $490 million in no time.

Last week’s champ The Other Woman fell to #2, earning an estimated $14.2 million.  After 10 days, the film has a Domestic total of $47.3 million.  Finishing fourth was Captain America: The Winter Soldier, which has a worldwide total of around $680 million, passing 2013′s Man of Steel ($668 million).

Rounding out the top-ten is Wes Anderson’s The Grand Budapest Hotel which is currently sitting at $51.5 million Domestic, and $140.5 million worldwide.  This may be Wes Anderson’s most financially successful film, showing that his audience is expanding and adapting along with the director.

Here’s the full top-ten estimates from the weekend box office.

1. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 $92 million

2. The Other Woman $14.2 million

3. Heaven is for Real $8.7 million
