Newly released "The Amazing Spider-Man" has spun itself a huge opening weekend, wracking up $65 million this weekend and $140 million in its 1st six days in U.S. theaters. Worldwide, "The Amazing Spider-Man" has made a staggering $341.2 million. "This was never modeled or was never meant to be 'Spider-Man 4'. This was always a relaunch with a new cast and different stories to tell, and quite frankly, it succeeded beyond our imaginations," CBS News quoted Rory Bruer, Sony’s head of distribution, as saying.
