It’s no surprise that Spidey took the top spot but what is amazing is its $92 million opening! That’s just 3 million less than Captain America. The Amazing Spiderman 2 is destined for greatness.
The Other Woman fell just one spot to number two with $14.2 million and a total domestic gross of $47 million. With a budget of $42 million, Cameron is back on top as a comedy star.
Heaven is for Real is keeping the faith, holding at number three with $8.7 million.
Captain America: The Winter Soldier took a hit and fell to number four after 5 weeks in release taking in $7.7 million. Its worldwide gross is now $680 million. Let’s see if Spidey can snare that much.
Rio 2 molted a little in the number five spot with $7.6 million.
Brick Mansions fell a spot to number six with $3.5 million.
Divergent came back to life at number seven, climbing up two spots from last week, and taking in $2.1 million. These teen titans have been in release for seven weeks now and are still going strong.
The Quiet Ones made a peep at number eight with $2 million.
God’s Not Dead fell to number nine with $1.7 million. With a tiny budget of $2 million, this insightful indie has grossed $55 domestically so far. Color me impressed.
Rounding out the top ten, and out of left field, was The Grand Budapest Hotel with $1.7 million. The Wes Anderson favorite was 13 last week, but managed to climb back into the top ten.

Next week, Zac Efron takes on Andrew Garfield in a comic book hero versus frat boy comedy show down. As much as I love Zac, my money is on Spiderman for a repeat at number one. Tune in to see if I’m right.
Until then, happy movie going.
