It's not The Avengers, but The Amazing Spider-Man should have a pretty amazing debut.
Following it's $50.2 million (and counting) gross in just 13 markets overseas, analysts are expecting the Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone reboot to collect AT LEAST $120 million in the U.S. between now and Sunday.
While every teenage boy and young adult male wants to see what director Marc Webb did with one of their favorite franchises, sources say there is strong interest from the young female audience too. The secret to the blockbuster's success may be its focus on the love story between Peter Parker and Gwen Stacy.
The expected box office numbers would place this version of Spidey above Sam Raimi and Tobey Maguire's $114.8 million weekend, but then again, that movie didn't hit theaters in the middle of the week.
Either way, it looks like this flick will be another HUGE success as far as Marvel adaptations go. Are U going to see it this week?
