The Amazing Spider-Man Scores Record Tuesday Opening with $35 Million

We hope all our readers in the United States are enjoying the 4th of July holiday today and certainly Sony Pictures must be pretty happy with the $35 million grossed by Marc Webb’s The Amazing Spider-Man in its opening day yesterday, including the $7.5 million from midnight screenings. $4 million of that amount is from the movie’s IMAX 3D screenings.

That amount surpasses the previous Tuesday record of $27.8 million set and held by Michael Bay’s Transformers exactly five years ago, and it’s a promising start to what should be a strong week which could defy earlier expectations for the movie.

Check back over the rest of the weekend for more box office updates on The Amazing Spider-Man.
