Spiderman Easily Takes July 4th Weekend

It's kind of a weird Holiday weekend as July 4th fell on a Wednesday.  Anyway, The Amazing Spiderman raked in a hefty $65 million over the weekend, easily putting the Web-slinger back on top for the fourth outing.  Even though it's the lowest entry in the Spiderman franchise, it's ahead of recent reboots, Batman Begins ($48.7 million), Superman Returns ($52.5 million), Casino Royale ($40.8 million), and X-Men: First Class ($55.1 million).  The Amazing Spiderman has already grossed $140 million since Tuesday and just over $200 million overseas.

Savages did better than expected, placing in fourth for $16.2 million.  Though, it might have some trouble surpassing it's reported $45 million budget due to it's C+ CinemaScore rating.

Katy Perry's concert documentary Part of Me had a soft opening ($7.2 million).  However, it should easily surpass it's reported $12 million budget, especially with the aid of positive reviews.

Meanwhile, Ted, is this year's The Hangover and Bridesmaids (aka: Breakout Adult Comedy), as it came in second ($32.6 million) and so far has made $120.2 million in two weeks.

Magic Mike and Madea's Witness Protection saw huge drops this weekend (up to 60%), though they are already both successes, as they only have minimal budgets ($7 million and $20 million respectively).
