Are International Box Office Results For 'The Amazing Spider-Man' Actually 'Amazing?'

EW Inside Movies:
Your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man is back!

Five years after Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man 3 netted $890 million at the worldwide box office, Sony’s franchise reboot, The Amazing Spider-Man, is starting its own box office rollout.

The Marc Webb-directed action movie, which will will swing its way into U.S. theaters on July 3, premiered this weekend in 13 international territories (nine in Asia, and four in Europe, which is fixated on the 2012 Euro Cup) and earned $50.2 million. (Cinema, The Amazing Spider-Man)

Can't wait to see this. I know this is one I won't be able to see the first day now that kids are out of school the theaters will be I'll probably have to wait a few days.

Same here, but different reason :P can't wait to watch this movie, I hope it delivers, high expectations here :D
alycakes  +   1246d ago
I think it will deliver. I don't expect to like it as much as I loved The Avengers but I know I will like it a lot because it's going to be so much different than what we are used to.

Its my most hyped movie of the summer! Cant resist but to see it opening day, even if the crowds suck.

Hey look who it is :p

I'd rather see a movie with no crowd. Means there is more chance you get that obnoxious a/hole who talks or makes noises throughout.
The Great Melon  +   1246d ago

If the movie you go see has a cult following like many comic movies or sci-fis, it is great to see on opening night. Sure it may be crowded and a bit more noisy, but it is great to be with a crowd that actively enjoys the movie.

Now going to see the movie during opening week during the day, you tend to get more of the "obnoxious a/hole".

Most hyped? Even over TDKR? I can't say that at all. TDKR is my most hyped movie of the year..period. That being said, Spider-Man has to be the comic book movie I'm looking forward to most behind TDKR. That even counts Avengers. Looking forward to this one more than I did Avengers.

And honestly, I think this could be better than Avengers. Don't get me wrong, Avengers was good. But it wasn't "best comic book movie eveR!!!" like many claimed.

With a great cast, and what appears to be some good writing, this looks like it could be very good. Especially after seeing what I have seen on this movie.
gaden_malak  +   1246d ago
Fair enough. Can't say I've ever been to a movie that was packed, except for Avatar and Dark Knight. They were pretty good.
Soldierone  +   1245d ago
@JL yep more than TDKR. I'm a big Batman fan too, but an even bigger Spider-Man film

After seeing it....I have no regrets. EASILY the best comic book film, and easily one of my all time favorite movies I've ever seen. I'll be going back to see it again!
gaden_malak  +   1246d ago
Can't wait either. Going to see it on Sunday at IMAX in 3D.

It's budgeted at 80 million dollars. There are worse things that could happen then the latest spiderman movie not breaking the speed of sound.
extermin8or  +   1246d ago
ummmm I believe it cost $280 million, and Sony aren't exactly in a position to make a loss on this film :s but it's a big franchise the fans alone that will see it even if they don't like the idea of a reboot should ensure it makes a profit I'd have thought :p
TheCritic28  +   1246d ago
I believe its closer to $200 million...$280 million would make it the most expensive movie of all time, lol.
sjaakiejj  +   1246d ago
Budget was ~$220 Million, and world wide box office is currently at ~$150 Million, so it's in a very comfortable position I'd say.
WitWolfy  +   1246d ago
I'm not expecting TOO MUCH of this of this reboot... But who knows, maybe it will blow me away...
level 360  +   1246d ago
It's going to be spectacular am sure of it and I think they picked a great new casts' of actors. Looking forward.

Just got done watching the movie, and I think it was f'n awesome... It was long, and things werent crambed together or bunched up like the series before it, to me it had perfect pacing... And that the story/plot was more about the story of peter parker, and what makes him "Spider Man"...
ngecenk  +   1246d ago
i was skeptical too about the movie but it was so freaking awesome! i even dare to say its a better movie experience than the avengers, but its just my opinion.
Saleem101  +   1246d ago
I just saw new spiderman it's not good at all, first guy playing spiderman doesn't resemble Peter Parker from comics... I prefer old spiderman better I just wish that in old movies they didn't kill off villains...
Soldierone  +   1245d ago
Couldn't disagree more. I know everyone has a right to their own opinion, but this was by far one of my favorite movies. It was so close to the comics, yet told it all in its own way and even modernized the story for the new crowd.

Even if you don't like Super hero movies, it is still a great movie.
alycakes  +   1241d ago
That's could stand on it's own. I thought it was great and plan on seeing it again. I still think TDKR will probably beat it at the boxoffice but that doesn't mean that it's any less the great movie it only gives you an idea of what certain fans are wanting to go. I'll be seeing it too just as much as Spider-Man.

Sent off a token to get 2 free tickets just yesterday.

This is the film I will be watching with them :D
KILLERAPP  +   1245d ago
Just saw it a few hours ago and liked it very much. It felt like is the beginning to something bigger. Really looking forward to part 2…
