Yesterday was certainly a holiday worth celebrating for those involved with "The Amazing Spider-Man."
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the latest superhero flick netted the second-highest gross ever for July 4, making $23.4 million on the day and bringing the two-day box office total to $59.3 million. The only film to ever have a better Independence Day showing? "Transformers," which back in 2007 made $29.1 million on July 4.
Considering the two-day numbers, THR writes that Marc Webb’s film, which to produce cost $220 million, is currently on-track to make a six-day box-office total of between $125 million and $140 million.
Earlier this week MTV News spoke with box office experts to get a sense of Spidey's money-making potential. It certainly looks like he's living up to the hype!
