'Amazing Spider-Man' Finishes Weekend With $62M


"The Amazing Spider-Man" had a slightly slower start at the box office than initially estimated, taking in USD 62 million domestically over opening weekend.
The final numbers Monday came in USD 3 million lower than the USD 65 million that distributor Sony had projected a day earlier, but it still was a healthy start for the new take on the Marvel Comics superhero, reports The Associated Press.
Since opening last Tuesday, "The Amazing Spider-Man" has taken in USD 137 million domestically. Its worldwide total is about USD 340 million since it began rolling out overseas the previous week.
