Amazing Spider-Man is not expected to top The Avengers' opening weekend box office gross.
Hollywood box office analysts have worked their voodoo, and The Amazing Spider-Man is expected to bring in about $129 million dollars for it's opening "weekend" debut, which, by the way, is a six-day opening due to the mid-week July 4 holiday. The take is not too shabby, of course, but it fails to top Spider-Man 3's $151 million opening weekend (a one-time three day record), and falls far short of The Avengers' $200 million opening weekend. The Avengers holds the several records for box office gross, including the opening weekend record. Spider-Man actually took in higher numbers than The Avengers in some overseas markets, such as India and Korea, and does now hold the record for largest gross on a Tuesday, and will be the second-highest grossing movie of the summer so far.
Next up for comic book fans: The Dark Knight Rises, in theaters July 20.
