The fifth Spider-Man movieand second in a reboot seriesearned an estimated $35.5 million on Friday. That includes $8.7 million from late Thursday shows. That’s not utterly a biggest opening day of a year so far, as that respect still belongs to final month’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier ($36.9 million). It is roughly matching to a initial Amazing Spider-Man, that warranted $35.9 million on a Tuesday (that includes Monday night previews).
It fares most worse when compared to a Sam Raimi Spider-Man movies, that had dual outings open on a initial weekend of May. The strange non-stop to $39.4 million in 2002, while Spider-Man 3 warranted $59.8 million in 2007.
There are still a far-reaching operation of possibilities for a weekend. On a low end, it could following Iron Man 2‘s settlement and breeze adult with $89 million. The high finish is Thor: The Dark World‘s pattern, that would put it during $95 million.
It will expected do above-average business with family audiences, yet that might not be adequate to fight so-so reviews (55 percent on Rotten Tomatoes) and word-of-mouth (“B+” CinemaScore). Our best theory is that The Amazing Spider-Man 2 finishes a weekend with around $93 million.
Facing approach foe from The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Captain America: The Winter Soldier fell 53 percent to $2.1 million. It’s now warranted over $231 million during a domestic box office.
Rio 2 dull out a Top Five with $1.7 million (down 48 percent). On Friday, a charcterised supplement crossed a $100 million mark.
