Sony Pictures’ The Amazing Spider-Man 2 officially kicked off summer on Friday in North America with $35.5 million (including Thursday evening screenings) from 4,324 locations, for a per screen average of $8,210. We don’t have the international numbers for Friday, but before the weekend began, the sequel had already earned $155 million overseas, bringing it’s worldwide total to $190.5 million so far.
The studio is projecting a three-day domestic take of between $92 – 97 million. The film received a CinemaScore of A- with audiences under 25 and an okay B+ overall.
It’s a little tricky to compare the opening to that of The Amazing Spider-Man in 2012 as that film opened on a Tuesday and brought in $137 million its first six days, $62 million of that coming over its first weekend. The first film went on to earn $752.2 million worldwide.
Stay tuned for the weekend box office estimates tomorrow!
