The Amazing Spider-Man opened with $35M yesterday which easily sets a new domestic record for a Tuesday opening ! It’s is ahead of the original 2D Transformers ($27.8M) that debuted on Tuesday July 3rd, 2007. ”That is one huge number,” a Sony exec exclaimed. “Unbelievable start to what should be a very exciting 6 days.”
The Marc Webb-directed superhero actioner starring Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone takes a different approach on a story we’ve all heard before….
Like most teenagers, Peter is trying to figure out who he is and how he got to be the person he is today. Peter is also finding his way with his first high school crush, Gwen Stacy, and together, they struggle with love, commitment, and secrets. As Peter discovers a mysterious briefcase that belonged to his father, he begins a quest to understand his parents’ disappearance – leading him directly to Oscorp and the lab of Dr Curt Connors, his father’s former partner. As Spider-Man is set on a collision course with Connors’ alter-ego, The Lizard, Peter will make life-altering choices to use his powers and shape his destiny to become a hero.
