Spider-Man Catches $140M In His Box Office Web, Then Holds His Breath

Amazing Spider-Man has gotten off to a decent launch. You can look at it two ways: the actual weekend is estimated at $65M (depending on the actual totals, it’s just about at Brave’s opening weekend total, $5M below The Lorax) or you can look at it having made $140M in a short week. Opening on a Tuesday during a holiday week is a little odd to compare to the rest of the year’s field. That said, Avengers passed $140M on the second day of release. Hungers games took three days to pass $140M. So Spidey is looking strong, but not… well… amazing.
