LOS ANGELES (July 8, 2012)—“The Amazing Spider-Man” had a $65 million opening weekend and pulled in $140 million in its first six days at U.S. theaters.
Worldwide, "The Amazing Spider-Man" has climbed to $341.2 million.
The movie started off as a smaller domestic moneymaker than the previous three Spider-Man films, but it laid to rest objections that it was too soon to re-launch the superhero franchise.
The new origin story for the Marvel Comics web-slinger came just five years after Tobey Maguire and Sam Raimi's "Spider-Man 3."
Oliver Stone's drug-war thriller "Savages" opened at No. 4 with a solid $16.2 million weekend.
The concert film "Katy Perry: Part of Me" failed to pack in the pop star's fans, debuting far down the chart with just $7.2 million.
