Amazing Spider-Man Sets Tuesday Opening Records

Amazing Spider-Man movie posterIt 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.
