The Amazing Spider-man set for amazing boxoffice

July 4th, 2012 by Paddy Comments

The reviews for The Amazing Spider-Man have been, well, less than amazing (read ours here) but that hasn’t stopped Spidey from hitting box office gold.

The rebooted superhero franchise took a very healthy $35m at the US box office on its opening day yesterday.
While it’s short of Spider-Man 3 ($59m)and Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows Part 2, which holds the opening day record of $91m, it’s a new record for a Tuesday and suggests a first week total in the region of $150m, not to be sniffed at.

Paddy Ryan, like Buck Rogers, is a man out of time. He's a loose cannon haunted by his past who, when he's not making painful attempts at humour, is busy watching as many geeky films and TV shows as possible. An avid reader, he has vowed one day to start that novel he's been talking about for years. Born in the late 70s, he's an 80s kid at heart who sees nothing wrong with spending hours upon hours watching season three of Robin Of Sherwood. Jason Connery wasn't that bad you know! He's got a million ideas for comic books but thankfully doesn't know anyone with the time to draw them and call his bluff on that one! The Empire Strikes Back is his favourite film, Doctor Who is his TV show of choice and when it comes to books ... well that's a whole other story! I'm Paddy Ryan and you're not...
