“The Amazing Spider-man 2” grabs the top spot at box office

See also

There was really only one big movie to open this weekend and it was apparent that no one else really wanted to see any other movie. The new Spider-man movie, The Amazing Spider-man 2 opened strong with an estimated $92 million. The movie premiered higher then the first Amazing Spider-man movie by a long margin but remains third all time in the opening category of all Spider-man movies.

The Spider-man movie is the 2nd of three Marvel movies to open in a two month span and premiered around where Captain America Winter Soldier premiered. This means good news for the third Marvel movie, X-Men Days of Future Past, when it comes out at the end of the month. There is some bad news for the movie going into the future as it only got a 54% approval on Rotten Tomatoes with all of the critics agree on lack of focus on the storyline hurting it.

For the rest of the box office, the only other movie to hit double digits is The Other Woman with an estimated $14.2 million. The movie has been doing well at the box office, besting it’s $40 million budget over the weekend and should end with a solid box office by the end of it’s time.

Heaven is for Real took in an estimated $8.7 million with Captain America Winter Soldier taking in an estimated $7.7 million and Rio 2 taking in an estimated $7.6 million.

For the rest of the box office, you can go here.

There is a good new movie coming out every week this month so it should make for an interesting shuffle from week to week.
