LOS ANGELES (AP) - “The Amazing Spider-Man” had a slightly slower start at the box office than initially estimated, taking in $62 million domestically over opening weekend.

Since opening last Tuesday, “The Amazing Spider-Man” has taken in $137 million domestically. Its worldwide total is about $340 million since it began rolling out overseas the previous week.
