Spidey knocks Captain America off the UK box office top spot

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 becomes UK’s biggest opening of 2014

Sony’s The Amazing Spider-Man 2 has topped the UK box office over the Easter weekend.

Screen reports that the sequel debuted with £9m, making it the biggest opening in the UK this year, but this is down on the £11.1m UK debut of 2012’s The Amazing Spider-Man.

This means that another Marvel superhero took a hit, as Captain America: The Winter Soldier fell from the number one spot. However the film did made another £832,000 to bring its UK total so far to £17.03m

The Winter Soldier is now close to overtaking the Iron Man’s £17.4m total, and the next Marvel film in its sights is Thor: The Dark World, which ended its UK run on £20.1m.
