411 Box Office Report: Amazing Spider-Man 2 Electrifies Box Office For #1
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 05.04.2014

To absolutely no one's surprise, this weekend at the box office was all about the webslinger. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 opened at #1 with a $92 million opening weekend. That number is a very significant improvement on the $62 million that the first film opened to in 2012 and on par with the $95 million that Captain America: The Winter Soldier did last month, which has to put a smile on Sony's face. The film didn't break any records but still performed incredibly well with a $21,277 average from 4,324 theaters. The film has added $277 million overseas for a total worldwide gross thus far of $369 million. The film had a $200 million budget and with a B+ CinemaScore (A- among those under 25 years old), it should have a pretty solid hold until Godzilla roars in on the 16th.

The Other Woman dropped a spot to make way for Spidey, coming in at #2 with $14.2 million. That second weekend total is down 43%, a higher than average number for female-led comedies, but considering the higher-than-expected number last week it's far from a disaster. The Cameron Diaz-led film has now grossed $47.3 million domestically and $67.8 million worldwide from a $40 million budget.

Heaven is for Real held steady in its third weekend, staying at #3 with $8.7 million. The faith-based drama dropped just 39% to continue its impressive run. The movie has earned $65.6 million domestically and $66.7 million worldwide on a budget of just $12 million.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier was down two spots in its fifth weekend, finishing at #4 with $7.8 million. The Marvel film didn't suffer as much from Amazing Spider-Man 2's opening as people might have predicted; it fell just 52% from last week which is very good considering the situation. It has a domestic gross of $237.1 million and a worldwide box office of $679.8 million, having now beat out Man of Steel's $668 million worldwide mark. The budget was $170 million.

Rio 2 was also down one spot, finishing at #5 in its fourth week. The animated family film brought in $7.6 million, bringing its total to $106.5 million stateside and $354.3 million worldwide off of a $103 million production budget.

The action remake Brick Mansions took a heavy tumble in its second weekend, falling 63% to a $3.5 million total for #6. The film's drop was expected considering the poor reviews and the front-loaded nature of action films. It has now made $15.5 million domestically from a $28 million budget.

Divergent continued to show its staying power as it was actually up to places in its seventh weekend. The teen-oriented franchise finished at #7 with $2.2 million, bringing its total gross to $142.7 million domestically and $250.3 million worldwide from an $85 million budget.

The Quiet Ones had a decent second-weekend drop, finishing down just one spot to #8 with $2 million. The film was down just 48%, a solid number for a horror flick although that's mitigated by its poor opening weekend. The film has earned $6.8 million domestically and $7.9 million worldwide. The budget isn't known.

God's Not Dead returned to the top ten, up two to #9 with $1.8 million. The faith-based film has now totaled $55.6 million domestically from a $2 million budget.

Also returning to the top ten was Wes Anderson's The Grand Budapest Hotel which was up three to #10 with $1.7 million. The film has now totaled $51.5 million domestically and $134.2 million from a $32 million budget. It is just $800,000 from topping The Royal Tenenbaums as Anderson's highest-grossing film domestically to date; it has already crossed that mark worldwide.

The weekend box office tally was $151.9 million, down 30% last year's take of $217.5 million. That weekend was led by Iron Man 3's $174.1 million opening.

Note: Numbers include Sunday estimates and are three-day estimates. A studio recoups 55% of a film's grosses on average, meaning it needs to approximately double its budget to be profitable during its theatrical run.

1. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 - $92 million ($92 million total)
