Box Office: ‘The Amazing Spider-man’ crushes Bollywood films

The Amazing Spider-Man
MUMBAI:  Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone starrer, Director Marc Webb’s ‘The Amazing Spider-Man’, has had a super run at the box-office.
The film’s opening weekend collections are in the range of Rs 270 million (Rs 27 crore net). What ‘The Amazing Spider-man’ has done in three days, Vidhu Vinod Chopra’s ‘Ferrari Ki Sawari’ has struggled to achieve in two weeks! With very dull response the two-week total of ‘Ferrari Ki Sawaar’ is approximately Rs 270 million (Rs 27 crore net).
Sony Pictures India, Managing Director, Kercy Daruwala said, "Spider-Man is the most consistently successful movie franchise in India and it’s great to see that five years since the last movie, and with a whole new cast and storyline, the franchise is going from strength to strength. What’s important to note is that a significant part of the box office has come from smaller centres as we have leveraged our strength in distributing and marketing this film across the country.”
Meanwhile, Kunal Kohli’s ‘Teri Meri Kahaani’ has also seen a sluggish first week with collections in the range of Rs 240 million (Rs 24 crore) net. PVR Pictures and Dibakar Banerjee’s ‘Shanghai’ has seen the poorest response, with approximately Rs 250 million (Rs 25 crore) net in three weeks.
After getting rave reviews, Sony Pictures is confident that the run taken by ‘The Amazing Spider-man’ will continue. “Many people have not had a chance to see the film yet. That, along with great reviews and word of mouth, leads us to expect to continue this performance over the weeks to come,” added Daruwala.
