The Amazing Spider-Man got off to a solid start at the box office yesterday, breaking the Tuesday single day record with an estimated $35 million. That tally includes the $7.5 million this superhero origin story rang up during midnight screenings.

The opening day total surpasses the $27.9 million earned by Transformers on the same Tuesday in 2007. Transformers went on to make a whopping $155.4 million over its opening six-day frame five years ago, which included $8.8 million from midnight shows. The $35 million opening day includes $4 million from nearly 300 IMAX theaters.

We won't know for sure until Sunday, but varying estimates put The Amazing Spider-Man's six-day haul between $120 million and $140 million. The superhero reboot will also have to contend with the 3D concert film Katy Perry: Part of Me opening tomorrow, and the Oliver Stone crime drama Savages opening on Friday.

The Amazing Spider-Man was released July 3rd, 2012 and stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Rhys Ifans, Denis Leary, Martin Sheen, Sally Field, Irrfan Khan, Campbell Scott. The film is directed by Marc Webb.
