'Spider-Man' Amazes at the Box Office with $140M
Sony Pictures

The $220 million reboot “The Amazing Spider-Man” earned a whopping $140 million in its first six days.

This “Spider-Man” incarnation didn’t make quite as much as the previous predecessors. After six days, 2002′s “Spider-Man” had earned $144.1 million, 2004′s “Spider-Man 2” had earned $180.1 million, and 2007′s “Spider-Man 3” had earned $176.2 million.

Still, the healthy debut of “The Amazing Spider-Man,” starring new players Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone, proved that Sony didn’t make a mistake rebooting the web-slinger after the Tobey Maguire/Sam Raimi reign.  

Seth MacFarlane’s comedy “Ted” came in second with $32.6 million, while Disney-Pixar’s animated adventure “Brave” landed in third with $20.2 million.

Rounding out the top five were the gritty Oliver Stone drama “Savages,” in fourth place with $16.2 million, and the stripper hit “Magic Mike,” which came in fifth with $15.6 million.
