Seen it. I like it. Better action, better lead performance, better cinematography. Not so hot about the script or the villain.

Early reviews are largely mixed. One sticking point that generated complaints from a lot of people so far is something I bitched about several times in this thread. The pointless need for a retelling for the origin story.

Interesting, movie is still making bank. Opened bigger than Avengers in some markets. So yeah, this franchise isn't leaving Sony anytime soon.

The Amazing Spider-Man Scores $50.2 Million in Asia

Sony's franchise reboot The Amazing Spider-Man doesn't open in North America until Tuesday, July 3, but over the weekend it opened internationally in 13 Asian markets and managed to gross $50.2 million in just three days.

Korea scored $13.4 million on 1,213 screens, the third-highest opening for a Hollywood movie behind the last two "Transformers" movies; it opened 24% higher than Spider-Man 3 and 10% higher than The Avengers.

Japan claimed $11.4 million on 1,092 screens, 84% of that country's weekend box office.

The $6 million the movie made in India is the biggest opening for a Hollywood film, 74% higher than Spider-Man 3, 73% higher than The Avengers.

The other Asian countries including the Phillippines, Taiwan, Hong Kong and more also showed huge openings on par with other major blockbusters.

That's a great start for the reboot that has been questioned by many fans of the comics and the Sam Raimi trilogy and it just goes to show that in many countries, it doesn't matter who is in the mask as long as it's called "Spider-Man." Even so, one can expect that the plans to produce a sequel for the summer of 2014 will continue without hesitation based on this international opening.

Sony's also celebrating this weekend because their other big summer movie based on a comic book, Men in Black 3, has reached $599.4 million worldwide, making it the highest-grossing movie in that sci-fi comedy franchise.

The stuff I've seen lately has increased in my interest. Still think the silver booties and light-up web shooters are dumb, and I question the need to rehash the origin, but Garfield and Stone seem appealing. A step up from Toby, anyway. And the wire work alone may be worth the price of admission.

The iPad game is pretty fun.
