The Amazing Spider-Man, the reboot of the comic book franchise starring Andrew Garfield in the title role plus real-life love Emma Stone, ruled the box office weekend with an estimated gross of $65 million, EW.com
reports. Since its July 4 release, the $220 million action-adventure
has made $140 million in the U.S.; worldwide, it has made $341.2 million
The well-reviewed flick debuted with slightly smaller numbers than earlier films in the franchise starring Tobey Maguire (2007’s Spider-Man 3 grabbed $176.2 million in six days), but the still-impressive bow bodes well for inevitable Spider-Man sequels starring Garfield and company.
