Reuters reports that Spider-Man 2 had a big opening in Italy:
“Spider-Man 2” spun the final touches on his international web in spectacular style during the weekend. Local favorites continued to perform well, while “The Village” made it four straight weeks at No. 1, narrowly beating “The Terminal,” according to weekend estimates.
Sony’s “Spider-Man 2” opened big in Italy, taking in about $9.6 million (including previews) from a huge release on 800 screens, marking the biggest release ever in both print numbers and dollar terms for the territory. Columbia TriStar International expects a record-breaking $8.3 million for the three-day weekend.
Elsewhere, “Spidey” spun about $10 million from 1,600 prints for a cume of $390.3 million.
