The Amazing Spider-Man got off to a sizzling start and then continued to do solid business, sending the reboot of the superhero franchise to the top spot at the box-office. In its opening weekend, the movie took in $65 million and since it’s opening last Tuesday has taken in $140 million.
That figure is off from where each of the Sam Raimi directed installments opened, but is probably still enough to get a second and third installment of the proposed trilogy about the web-slinger.
Meanwhile, last week’s top money earner Ted dropped a spot to second with $32.5 million. Third place went to Pixar’s Brave with $20.1 million.
Oliver Stone’s new movie Savages opened in fourth with $16.1 million and Magic Mike rounded out the top five with $15.6 million.
