SPIDEY STAYS STRONG OVERSEAS

Overseas, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 got mostly a free ride. With little competition to challenge his position in the center of the web, Spidey amassed $69.5 million to bring its international total to $403 million — striking distance away from the $490 million earned by its predecessor. It earned $25.1 million from China alone. Neighbors did compete with it but in only 29 markets — beating the Spider-Man movie in 17 of them and earning a solid $34.4 million. Meanwhile, there was no dislodging Frozen from first place in Japan, where it has held on to the lead for nine consecutive weeks. It has brought in $164.4 million in that country. With a worldwide total of $1.19 billion, the Disney animated film is the sixth biggest earner of all time and seems certain of overtaking Iron Man 3 to become the fifth-biggest.
