"The Amazing Spider Man" catapulted into the list of Hollywood blockbusters this week, and has sold more than a third of a billion dollars' worth of tickets around the world since opening Monday.
The latest Spiderman flick is projected to have sold $65 million this Friday-Saturday-Sunday period, and has grossed about $140 million since opening Monday night -- an unusual premiere day during a bifurcated U.S. holiday week.
"Ted" and "Brave" are also doing well, according to movie industry beancounter Paul Dergerabedian at Hollywood.com.
"Ted" has grossed -- in every sense of the word -- $120.2 million over two weeks, buoyed by a $32.6 million weekend.
"Brave," in its third week of exhibition, has sold a projected $211 million in tickets worldwide, and had a $20.2 million weekend.
"Savages" opened in fourth place, with a $16.2 million premiere weekend.
Rounding out the 10 most-popular movies in the United States and Canada, as projected by the studios and collated by Hollywood.com, were "Magic Mike" ($15.6 million), "Tyler Perry's Madea's Witness Protection Program" ($10.2 million), "Madagascar 3-D: Europe's Most Wanted" ($7.7 million), "Kate Perry: Part Of Me" (debuting with $7.1 million this weekend, $10.3 million since Thursday), "Moonrise Kingdom" ($4.6 million) and "To Rome With Love" (entering wide distribution with $5.3 million).
