The Amazing Spider-Man got off to a strong $50.2 million start, most of which came from mighty debuts throughout Asia. The movie opened stronger than Spider-Man 3 and The Avengers in South Korea
($13.4 million), and it was also impressive in Japan ($11.4 million). Thanks to the presence of Bollywood star Irrfan Khan, Spider-Man scored the biggest debut ever for a Hollywood movie with $6 million in India. It also had one of the best openings ever in the Philippines ($3.2 million), Hong Kong ($2.7 million), Singapore ($2.9 million) and Thailand ($1.9 million). Outside of Asia, its only major market was Germany, where it netted a comparatively-modest $4.2 million. The Amazing Spider-Man is set to open on Tuesday in the U.S
., and it will likely be reaching the rest of its foreign markets over the next week or two.
