The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Finds It Audience – Biff Bam Pop’s Weekend Box Office Wrap-Up Report

The_Amazing_Spiderman_2_posterThe Amazing Spider-Man 2 managed to survive horrid reviews from critics and fans alike to score an impressive $92 million in its opening weekend. While its a far cry from the over $100 million weekends the first and third films scored, its significantly higher than the Amazing Spider-Man’s 2012 three-day total of roughly $72 million (keep in mind, that film was released in the middle of the week, mind you).

I anticipate the next year and a half is going to go by fairly quickly, with teases and trailers and hidden paparazzi shots giving us glimpses of what’s happening on set over in England. In the meantime, I’ll be counting the days by building and then staring longingly at my Lego Star Wars sets. Of course, when I say my, I really my Princesses. It’s all hers.

I’m like the dad in The Lego Movie. Sure, I let my kid play with the mini-figures (she can’t break those), but things like the Escape Pod, the Desert skiff and Jabba’s Palace are all out of arm’s reach. Now, that doesn’t mean we’re not going to play with that stuff together someday. We’re just waiting until she’s a little older.
