And $100 million domestically...
Deadline reports that with $5.2 million on Monday and $6.2 million on Tuesday, Sony and Marvel's The Amazing Spider-Man 2 has passed $100 million domestically only six and a half day after its release (including the $8.7 million from 7 PM screenings on Thursday). The film is at $103 million after the first two days of mid-week grosses after earning $91.6 for its opening weekend. It has now earned over $420 million worldwide.
It was released internationally two weeks before it was released in the US. The film was released earlier to give it more time before Warner Bros and Legendary's Godzilla arrives on May 16 worldwide (except for China, where it will be released on June 16). As for Spider-Man, the reason China is so important is that the film is playing in 11,002 theaters in the country, as opposed to 4,324 domestically.
