Are you looking forward to Amazing Spider-Man 2? If you said No, then it seems you may be in the majority (based on the surprising response to an email movie invite I saw yesterday.) While I'm not sure of the reason, people do not seem jazzed to see this latest installment of the Sony Spider-man franchise. Is all because the Rhino looks so bad?
Personally, I'm willing to wait for this one on DVD. While I enjoyed Amazing Spider-Man, the amount of villains is definitely giving me Spider-Man 3 flashbacks. To this day, I pick Spider-Man 2 as my favorite Spider-Man movie because of its focus on Doctor Octopus.
My box office prediction for this movie is it will have a first weekend haul of somewhere in the neighborhood of 80-85 million. (The first one only made $52 million in the first weekend.)
