Spidey, ‘Ted,’ ‘Brave’ Spin Box Office Gold


The high weekend temperatures translated to big box office numbers for audiences in the U.S. and all over the world this past weekend. Sony’s successful Amazing Spider-Man reboot proved to be the huge blockbuster that everyone expected, landing on the top spot with $140 million (during its six-day opening) and bringing in a total of $341.2 million worldwide.

Fox/Blue Sky’s fourth chapter in the Ice Age saga, Continental Drift, is also doing remarkably well at the international box office, making $80.6 million from 48 markets during its second weekend abroad (with a foreign total of $198 million). The 3-D prehistoric pirate extravaganza will open on Friday, July 13 in the U.S.

American audiences couldn’t get enough of Seth MacFarlane’s raunchy talking teddy-bear movie, Ted, which made $32.6 during its second week of release, making its 10-day domestic total more than $120.2 million (as well as delivering another $13.1 million in Australia and Taiwan).

Disney/Pixar’s Brave was the third most popular movie at the box office, adding another $20.2 million to its domestic take, making its cume $174.5 during its third weekend. DreamWorks’ Madagascar 3 continued to be a resilient player at No. 7 with $7.7 million ($196 million total) during its fifth weekend in theaters.
