While The Amazing Spider-Man 2’s run atop the U.S. box office might have ended after only one week, the film has proven to be a strong international hit. With the addition of Friday’s U.S. box office grosses, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 became the second highest grossing movie of 2014 at the worldwide box office.
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 has brought in $460.8 million at the worldwide box office, trailing only Captain America: The Winter Soldier, which has accumulated $683.6 million at the worldwide box office. The Lego Movie is in third place at the worldwide box office with $457.6 million. Since The Lego Movie includes Batman and a couple other superheroes, the top three movies at the worldwide box office currently feature superheroes in some form or fashion.
X-Men: Days of Future Past will also likely have a strong international debut, so it’s probable that by mid-June, the top four movies at the worldwide box office will all include superheroes.
