The weekend has come to a close, with The Amazing Spider-Man faring quite well in the grand scheme of things. A complete box office wrap after the jump.
#1. The Amazing Spider-Man
Total: $140 million
Budget: $230 million
Rotten Tomatoes: 73%
Hypable Grade: B-
In terms of the grand scheme of things, it’s pretty difficult to peg what constitues a successful six-day opening, particularly for a blockbuster such as The Amazing Spider-Man. $140 million certainly isn’t something to be too upset about, and with an “A-” CinemaScore, the film will likely holdover fairly well…Until The Dark Knight Rises is released, that is.
Seriously, why release Spider-Man two weeks ahead of The Dark Knight Rises? That doesn’t make much sense from a business standpoint, does it?

Universal has got to be pleased about this one, as Ted managed just a 40% drop from its very solid opening weekend. With $120 million domestically so far on a $50 million budget, means this one is well on its way to box office gold.
Brave continues to perform admirably, as the film as lowered to just a 40% dip in its third week, compared with a 48% last week. $174 million domestically so far on a $185 million budget means that the film’s success will be based on international results, which aren’t yet known considering most markets haven’t opened yet.
Given the film’s reported “C+” CinemaScore, and the fact its an R-rated film from Oliver Stone, $16 million is actually a surprisingly high number after just a $5 million haul on Friday. This actually marks the third highest opening weekend for Stone, with a decent 6k per theater average. The real question is whether the film will get anything in the way of a box office holdover next weekend. That $45 million budget still looms large.
#5. Magic Mike
For Magic Mike everything here on out is gravy, as it has now grossed $72 million domestically on a $7 million budget. Studios have got to love Soderbergh, who can stretch a budget like few others, which, in this day and age, is a major skill for any director. Good thing it’s been successful so far, as a 60% drop isn’t great.
#6. Tyler Perry’s Madea’s Witness Protection
Are people really still seeing these? That $20 million production budget seems a little steep here, as Madea films continue to perform worse and worse of late. But who’s keeping track?
#7. Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted
Now the second highest grossing animated film of the year, Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted continues to bring in family dollar, as it’s sitting at $450 million worldwide. Ice Age: Continental Drift opens next weekend and is already crushing the competition overseas, so don’t expect this one to gross much more in the coming weeks.
#8. Katy Perry: Part of Me
Yikes. Katy Perry: Part of Me clearly is underperforming, after a four-day gross of only $10.2 million. Looks like the 3D concert film isn’t always an easy profit. Did you see this one this weekend? Share your thoughts in the comments!
#9. Moonrise Kingdom
Moonrise Kingdom continues to perform well, as it expands into even more theaters each week. Have you seen it? If so, take a look at our discussion with Wes Anderson Here!
#10. To Rome With Love
While nowhere near the success that Midnight in Paris had, Woody Allen’s To Rome With Love is definitely making a bit of bank as it expands even further this weekend. Have you seen it yet? Share your thoughts in the comments!
There you have it. Leave any thoughts in the comments and we’ll be back next weekend with another box office wrap!
