The Box office continues to be all about Spider Man, and Amy Pascal.
“Far from From” grossed $25 million yesterday, bringing its US total to $91 million. Tonight it will cross the $100 million mark after four days. The weekend should bring it to $150-$170 million.
Producer Amy Pascal left Sony Pictures after the crazy Wikileaks-Korean hacking incident revealed all sorts of embarrassing emails from and to everyone at the studio. She took Spider Man with her because at that point, no one wanted it or knew what do with it. Amy did.
Pascal has now had two monster live action Spider Man movies, plus the Oscar winning “Into the Spider Verse” animated movie. You can’t do better than this in the movie business. She’s a one -woman Ziegfeld. Bravo to her, not just as a female producer, but a producer period!
