DHAKA: A movie reboot of the Spider-Man franchise snared US$7.5 million in its web at United States and Canadian theatres from screenings just after midnight on Tuesday, distributor Sony Pictures said.
The opening for ‘The Amazing Spider-Man’ starring Andrew Garfield as the swinging superhero matched the midnight sales for Sony’s last movie in the franchise, Spider-Man 3, in 2007.
About US$1.4 million of the new film’s opening sales came from showings on giant Imax screens, Sony said, reports The Straits Times.
The midnight total ranked below this year’s blockbuster, ‘The Avengers’, which pulled in US$18.7 million at its May opening, but ahead of June sci-fi thriller ‘Prometheus’ with $3.6 million.
