‘Spider Man 2’ Nets Hong Kong B.O. Record

Spidey sequel opens on almost all territory's screens.

HONG KONG – Sony’s “The Amazing Spider Man 2” Thursday obliterated the all-time opening day box office record in Hong Kong. And did so by taking almost every available screen in the territory.

The score is fully 26% ahead of the previous record holder “Spider Man 3,” which opened in the territory seven years ago to the day. It is also 45% ahead of “Iron Man 3,” which enjoyed a record breaking run in April last year.
