‘The Amazing Spider-Man’ Springs Out The Gate?

Marc Webb’s “The Amazing Spider-Man” appears to be opening strong overseas–in India it premiered bigger than Marvel’s “The Avengers”–but this has to be tempered by the fact that other movies that appeared strong because of international profits have gone on to underperform at the American box office.
Like Peter Berg’s “Battleship,” for instance.
So at this point, Spidey’s reboot looks promising–if critical reception is any indicator–but I have to admit that my enthusiasm for this film is somewhat lacking (despite this I have every intention of seeing it because I have been living with these characters for at least 15 to 20 years of my life) and I haven’t heard from too many other people that are revved up to see it either.
