The purpose of a Friday box office report is to provide some indication of how new releases will fare over their first weekends. Of course, that purpose is undermined when the frame’s biggest title has been around since Tuesday. The Amazing Spider-Man had a promising start, earning just under $60 million through the Fourth of July holiday and $75 million in its first three days. With a Friday estimate of $20.7 million from 4,318 locations, Sony’s reboot looks like it will end up with close to $140 over six days, or slightly higher than studio projections. Katy Perry: Part Of Me, the latest 3D concert film, also got a jump on the Friday box office: launching Thursday with $3.1 million from 2,730 locations. With only $2.7 million on Friday, however, Part Of Me looks like it will struggle to top $10 million by Sunday. The only new movie that stuck to the Friday release model was Universal’s Savages. The R-rated drama from director Oliver Stone earned an estimated $5.6 million from 2,628 locations towards what should be a $15 million first weekend.

We’ll have full details on the post-holiday box office tomorrow.

Title Friday Total
1 The Amazing Spider-Man $20,700,000 $95.7
2 Ted $10,500,000 $98.1
3 Brave $6,238,000 $160.5
4 Magic Mike $6,135,000 $63.3
5 Savages $5,600,000 $5.6

    glad it’s doing well … it was a good production no matter what the haters say here. :)

    The Amazing Spider Man is better than all of Raimi’s trilogy for many reasons but mainly because Spiderman talks and acts like Spiderman is suppose to. That wise cracking condescending I can kick you ass whenever I want tone is exactly what Spidey is suppose to sound like and Andrew nailed it. Sorry Tobey Maguire your a great actor but your basically the new Michael Keaton.

    I loved it and I’m glad the box office success will allow for a trilogy to be made.

      “Sorry Tobey Maguire your a great actor but your basically the new Michael Keaton.”

      Well, my group of peers (I’m 33, I have no idea how old you are) still considers Keaton to be the best Batman. So…?

      “That wise cracking condescending I can kick you ass whenever I want tone is exactly what Spidey is suppose to sound like”

      Again, this must be an age thing because the Spider-Man you describe sounds like a complete d-bag. Spider-Man should be neither condescending nor a bully.

        I’m also 33 and Michael Keaton is not the best Batman, he is great actor caught in Tim Burton’s version of Batman just like Tobey is caught in Sam Raimi’s version of Spiderman.

        Good interpretations but they never felt right. i know its hard to argue with that Evil Prince listening museum defacing Joker in Batman 1989 and that Spiderman 3 musical number but ill take my chances.

        this Spiderman is a huuuge improvement and Nolan’s Batman is superior to Burton’s in every way imaginable. This will be proven in a couple of weeks when Nolan actually finishes a trilogy properly, something neither Raimi or Burton ever could.

        I know I’m not changing anyone’s mind, its just my opinion

        I also think Keaton is the best Batman. Nolan’s films are great, but bale gOod in comparison to Keaton. Also this spiderman doesn’t even compare to Raimi’s excellent vision for the series. Yeah it has the webshooters, but they changed everything else in a stupid way. Sorry but this Spidey ain’t nearly as good as the first 2 Spidey films.

        Green Goblin wore a mask in Spidey 1. Enough said.

    The box office reporting for TASM is perplexing to me.

    It’s being hailed as a smash hit by reporters, yet it won’t make near as much as Spider-Man 2 in twice the amount of time. It seems people are having their cake and eating it too.

    “Well, it’s performing great for a reboot!” Except, how much of a reboot is it, exactly? People still know who Spider-Man is; the brand awareness and interest in the property has been palpable since 2002. Shouldn’t it be doing BETTER in it’s (ridiculously long) opening weekend than the previous movies?

    Weird; it seems everyone wants to tiptoe around the fact that the movie is under-performing. Why? Superhero movies aren’t in danger of being made if TASM doesn’t do well. Avengers pretty much guaranteed superheroes will find themselves to the multiplexes for the foreseeable future.

    TDKR will wipe this movie off the map come July 18.

    Sorry, but don’t speak for an entire generation just because you have an opinion.
    I am in your ‘bracket’ but based on quality of work alone, I think it’s fair to say that Maguire was the ‘blank slate, talented actor’ who fit into the cartoonish, pulpy version of his Spidey VERY MUCh the way Keaton fulfilled Burton’s “elevated above Camp” version.

    But we live in a different climate now, & frankly this Spider Man was EVERYTHING I could have NEVER IMAGINED a Spider Man movie would’ve looked & felt like, growing up.

    Seriously, when you’re a kid & you hear they’re making a SpiderMan movie, you have this image in your head that is very real, fleshed out, and like the experience you had imagining yourself in Spidey’s shoes.

    Movies have always come short of that, tho – til now. I think it’s good for people to go in w/ lowered, realistic expectations (thanks to reviewers, etc. ) b/c my expecations were blown sky high.

    Can’t wait for another. And I definitely recommend seeing in 3-D, if you ever wanted to know what swinging from building to building in New York could feel like!

    Plus – the romance is palpable. Probably a good date movie, to boot!

      I didn’t speak for a whole generation, Django9000, I spoke of a group of my peers. Need help figuring out the difference?

      “Seriously, when you’re a kid & you hear they’re making a SpiderMan movie, you have this image in your head that is very real, fleshed out, and like the experience you had imagining yourself in Spidey’s shoes.”

      Yeah, I had that experience back in 2002; how was the third grade back then?

      In my “bracket”– yeah, sure.

  • Sugreev2001

    I’m 28 and Michael Keaton sucks compared to Bale’s.I’m a massive Batman nut and I used to love Burton’s movies to death,but Nolan has taken them to the next degree.Bale’s annoying voice as Batman notwithstanding,it’s more in line with Nolan’s “realistic” approach as a means to keep Bat’s identity secret.

    About Spiderman – Sorry,but Andrew’s Spider is what he is like in the comics.In earlier editions,he was snarky in school before Uncle Ben’s murder and becoming Spidey humbled him.And the fact you are calling him a d-bag means you’ve never read the comics.Spiderman has always quipped when he’s out crimefighting….the whole comic book reading world knows that.Raimi’s interpretation made Peter/Spiderman into a depressed emo,even though I loved the first two movies myself.They were definitely cheesy as hell.After Iron Man,Marvel movies have come into their own and this is a new era of superhero movies…being more faithful the the comics.

    “Again, this must be an age thing because the Spider-Man you describe sounds like a complete d-bag. Spider-Man should be neither condescending nor a bully.”

    Spiderman has been long established as the wise cracking sarcastic superhero,you have absolutely no idea.

    As I’ve reported when I saw the advance screening, this is leagues and bounds the best Spider-Man film yet, and one of the best superhero films yet. I’m really happy to see it doing well at the box office and I can see this having some amazing legs. Those predicting that TDKR will steal this movie’s thunder are completely out of their minds, both are completely different beasts and aimed to different kinds of audiences.

  • Phil Beta

    Spidey is shaping up bad in box office as TDKR premiere looms. I don’t think it will pass Spider-man 2 or 3, or even catch up with those, somehow.

  • Strong Enough

    it baffles me how idiotic people are to spend money on the same god damn spidey flick

    and to all that is saying TASM is better than Spider man 2 should just go jump off a cliff
