More than $500 million of the haul for Sony's Marvel superhero sequel has come from overseas
“The Amazing Spider-Man 2” crossed the $700 million mark at the global box office Friday.
Sony's Marvel superhero sequel is about to top $200 million domestically — it's over $198 million — and has taken in more than $502 million internationally since opening in early May.
The year's leading movie at the worldwide box office is another Marvel superhero sequel, Disney's “Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” which has brought in $710 million globally. And Fox's Marvel mutant mashup “X-Men: Days of Future Past” is No. 3 at $624 million.
“The Amazing Spider-Man 2” will be the lowest-grossing of the five films in the $3.9 billion franchise domestically, but its foreign total is the second-largest, behind only the $554 million overseas haul of “Spider-Man 3.”
Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone star in “The Amazing Spider-Man 2,” which was directed by Marc Webb and written by Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman.
Jamie Foxx, Dane DeHaan, Sally Field, Paul Giamatti and Chris Cooper co-star in the film, which was produced by Matt Tolmach and Avi Arad, along with Kurtzman and Orci.
