The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is making bank overseas!
Sony made their debut in international markets for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 before getting a possibly bumpy start in the U.S. Now, it seems like the tables have turned in favor for the web-slinging hero! The anticipated Sony franchise released in 15 territories, spreading all across Europe (U.K. Spain, Germany and Belgium). This includes other top markets like Mexico, Australia and numbers are getting HIGHER!
It's safe to say that Spidey is off to a great start, HURRAY!!!!
The U.K., Germany, Australia and Belgium — Those four markets saw The Amazing Spider-Man 2 with the biggest opening days of 2014!
According to Deadline:
The U.K., Spidey grossed $2.73M, which is not surprising since it’s a top school holiday and kids are flooding into the market now. Back in 2012, The Amazing Spider-Man made $40.3M in the U.K. all in, so this is one of the most important markets for the studio. The film grabbed $1.44M Down Under in Australia, a big $1.3M in Germany and in Belgium $190K for its opening day. Other markets where Spidey opened are Austria, Denmark, Israel, New Zealand, Portugal, Switzerland, Uraguay, Bulgaria, and Sweden.
It seems like The Amazing Spider-Man 2 shows no signs of slowing down, as the cash continues to flow in overseas. Does this mean Spider-Man will do well in America? It's been getting love/hate reviews from critics, so can this good buzz from overseas help it here in the US?
Let's hope so!
