@robotodd I was trying to sell them on the idea of just using my house, but it didn't seem to go over with them.
It appears that movie going audiences may not care if a The Amazing Spider-Man is a reboot, they were ready for more web slinging.
The latest film version of Spider-Man opened up on Tuesday to $35 million with $4 million of that coming from IMAX showings. This is the largest Tuesday opening ever for a film, and the CinemaScore grades are coming in at an A- average and an A from those 18 and under. With those scores, it’s going to be a long and big weekend for your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man.
While this is good news, this is down from the opening of Spider-Man 2 in 2004 which opened to $40 million. With the adjustment for IMAX and 3D viewing ticket prices, that means attendance was down. The opening for that film was on a Wednesday, and not followed by a non-working holiday, so things ar definitely a bit off. The proof will be in the pudding as we go into the weekend, but it’ll be interesting to see how it tracks.
Seeing as Amazing Spider-Man 2 has been set for a May 2, 2014 release date, it’s doubtful this is going to matter a whole lot.
