An amazing $47 million is what the movie earned for Sony in 14 international markets during Easter weekend, and its the highest opening of the year in those countries thus, makes Amazing Spider-man 2 on the top of the foreign box-office chart.
It’s an incredible start for the film, which is yet to premier in North America on May 2.
The Hollywood reporter cites that the sequel gathered “$15 million in the U.K. and Ireland and $11.1 million in Mexico. Germany debuted to $6.2 million, while Australia ponied up $5.2 million. Spain bowed with $3.9 million. And, Imax theaters generated $2.3 million in ticket sales for a $47,000 location average.”
