The Amazing Spider-Man 2 rakes in $369 million worldwide.
With $92 million domestic and $277 foreign coming in, Spider-Man rules the box office, despite not performing as well as some of the other films where a man shoots webs and swings around New York.
More box office breakdown after the jump.
1. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 – $92 million
While it did better than The Amazing Spider-Man, it still did not open as strong as Spider-Man ($114 million) or Spider-Man 3 ($151 million, good god…). How Spider-Man 2 ($88 million) did not open as strong is beyond me, it is easy the best of the two franchises.
2. The Other Woman – $14.2 million
People are still under the illusion that Cameron Diaz is a comedic actress. Over $47 million for this comedy so far. Then again, with people swinging from webs, children seeing dead people, men with shields battling men with metal arms, and birds in Brazil, there are no other comedies to check out at the moment.
3. Heaven is for Real – $8.7 million
Exploitation of the religious masses is for real.
4. Captain America: The Winter Soldier – $7.7 million
Over half of a billion dollars worldwide, Captain America rules the box office comic world so far in 2014.
5. Rio 2 – $7.6 million
The initial children’s film bump is over, as these birds stumble through a few more weeks in the theater. Your Lex Luthor, kids.
Not-So Honorable Mentions:
6. Brick Mansions – $3.5 million
Brick Mansions is a remake of the French film, District 13 (Banlieue 13), an innovative action film which introduced parkour to a mainstream audience. What do you do with something innovative? You remake it, of course, for Americans. A complete bomb critically and commercially, fans prove that they will not watch Paul Walker in bad movies, only when he drives cars in bad movies.
8. The Quiet Ones – $2 million
Well, not every low-budget horror film is going to be a success.
13. Transcendence – $1.1 million
Johnny Depp stars in this movie, which, based on plot, had to be made in the 90’s. Ooohhh, he’s in the computer?! With a $100 million dollar budget (are you fucking kidding me?), and who knows h0w much including the marketing, this flop has brought in only $21 million domestically, and not much more than that foreign. Box office poison for Depp once again.
