THIS JUST GOES TO SHOW YOU THAT THE Critic AREN'T RIGHT ALL THE TIME, SPIDER MAN STILL RULES THE WEB?
The $220 million web-slinging adventure netted an estimated $20.7 million on Friday, which lifts its four-day total to $95.7 million. The Andrew Garfield/Emma Stone feature is headed for a weekend in the $65 million range, which would lift its six-day total to $140 million. Sure, that total is less than the $151.1 million that Spider-Man 3 earned in its first three days, but it’s a very strong start for a reboot. Batman Begins started with a humble $48.7 million, while X-Men: First Class zapped up $55.1 million during its opening weekend. Sony should be breathing a sigh of relief.
In second, Seth MacFarlane’s $50 million comedy Ted held up well, dropping 49 percent from its first Friday to $10.5 million. The R-rated raunchfest should stabilize over the rest of the weekend and take in about $35 million. Tonight, it will blaze past the $100 million mark, and it will finish the weekend with over $120 million.
Disney Pixar’s Scottish animation Brave stuck around in third place with another $6.2 million, which should lead to a $21 million weekend. The $185 million film will have about $175 million by Sunday. Warner’s Brothers’ Magic Mike was close behind with $6.1 million on its way to a likely $18 million frame, which would give the stripped film $75 million total.
