LOS ANGELES (AP) - Your new friendly neighborhood Spider-Man has spun himself a $65 million opening weekend and $140 million in his first six days at U.S. theaters.
Worldwide, "The Amazing Spider-Man" has climbed to $341.2 million.
The movie started off as a smaller domestic moneymaker than the previous three Spidey films, but it laid to rest objections that it was too soon to relaunch the superhero franchise.
The new origin story for the Marvel Comics web-slinger comes just five years after Tobey Maguire and Sam Raimi's "Spider-Man 3."
Oliver Stone's drug-war thriller "Savages" opened at No. 4 with a solid $16.2 million weekend. The concert film "Katy Perry: Part of Me" failed to pack in the pop star's fans, debuting far down the chart with just $7.2 million.
