Box Office: Bad reviews can’t keep “Spider-Man” from a $90 million+ weekend

spiderThe experts, professional box office watchers, predicted a 30% improvement in the take for this “Spider-Man” sequel. The last film opened at $62, and this would should clear $90 — Box Office Mojo, Deadline and Box Office Guru opined.

And they appear to be right on the money. Based on Friday’s numbers, that’s where this film will be Sunday night $91 million richer. Reviews aren’t helping, but they sure aren’t hurting.

“Belle,” opening in limited release, has a healthy (not epic, though) per screen average.

“The Other Woman” is holding over 50% of its opening weekend BO, close to $15 million,

The season’s big faith-based hits — “Heaven is for Real” and “God’s Not Dead” are hanging around the top ten. They may pass “Son of God” by the weekend’s end — both are at close to $60 million. “Noah” is closing in on $100 million.
