New tracking for Sony's The Amazing Spider-Man 2 hit the industry's doorstep this week, and early indicators suggest Sony has another global success coming down the pipeline. But, they have some work to do among the uninitiated before its May 2 domestic launch.

 

Interest levels for Peter Parker's latest chapter are polling 7 percent behind recent $95 million opener Captain America: The Winter Soldier at the same point before release. The good news is that Spidey's sequel isn't far behind where its predecessor stood a few weeks release two summers ago.

 

An intriguing fact about these numbers is that awareness isn't a problem.

When all is said and done we're still going to be looking at a fairly boring box office run. Very big business, nowhere nearly a billion but more than likely around three quarters. At this point I will be surprised if it gets close to $300 million domestic , with $230-40 million more realistic if its tracking is indicating Cap 2 numbers.
