Thursday Morning Update:  The Amazing Spider-Man 2 rose 18% on Wednesday to 28,734 tweets, up from 24,259 tweets on Tuesday. By comparison The Amazing Spider-Man had 7,023 the same distance from opening, but that was more than 100% bump from the day before. There is little doubt this is going to be huge but the days of Spider-Man being the biggest draw at the box office amongst the Marvel (or DC) pantheon appears to be long over.

Other recent comic adaptations grabbed the following numbers of tweets two days before their release: The Avengers - 49,147, Man Of Steel - 30,496, and The Dark Knight Rises - 52,921. I was expecting to see a bigger bump on Wednesday but its levels are big enough (it will cross 100,000 tweets by the end of today) to ensure a hefty $94 million for it by Sunday. It has already been doing amazingly well overseas, earning over $130 million before many key markets have had it debut. The first film grossed over $750 million worldwide and at its current pace that should be no problem for the film to reach in the coming months.

An updated first trailer for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles hit the web yesterday and grabbed 3,681 tweets. Far cry from the 57,000 that the first one grabbed a month ago but was still enough to give it the biggest increase of any film tracked on the day.
