In completely unsurprising news, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 easily claimed the #1 spot in its opening weekend with $92 million. What might be surprising is that while $92 million is a huge opening, it isn’t breaking any records or coming close to last year’s Iron Man 3, which opened on the same weekend at #1 with $174.1 million.
Last weekend’s #1 movie, The Other Woman, dropped to #2 and was followed by Heaven Is for Real at #3. Marvel’s other superhero movie currently in theaters, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, continues to do well and moved to #4 on the list. The animated sequel, Rio 2, rounded out the Top 5.
Here is The Top 10 for the weekend of May 2 – 4, 2014:
1. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 ($92.0M)
2. The Other Woman ($14.2M)
3. Heaven Is for Real ($8.7M)
