The Amazing Spiderman has set new benchmarks for Hollywood releases even though collections started dipping from Tuesday onwards especially for the dubbed versions of the film.
The film has grossed around 41 crore nett over the first week which is by far the highest opening week total for a Hollywood release beating the 27 crore nett figure of 2012.
The 41 crore nett figure is more than the lifetime business of most Hindi releases of 2012. Only 6-7 Hindi releases have managed to do more than 41 crore nett lifetime business in 2012.
The Amazing Spiderman has taken the potential for Hollywood films to another level and big Hollywood releases are likely to get even wider releases and now they are the best bet after a big budget Hindi film is a big Hollywood release. The biggest plus for Hollywood releases like The Avengers and The Amazing Spiderman is they have acceptance in the interiors which films like Teri Meri Kahaani, Gangs Of Wasseypur, Ferrari Ki Sawaari will never get.
