Fireworks - the one that didn't fail miserably at least - weren't the only things that exploded on July 4.
The Amazing Spider-Man spun out $23.4 million yesterday alone, combing with Tuesday's total for an overall box office haul so far of $59.3 million. It's on track to gross over $125 million in its first six days of release.
Where does this figure rank in history?
Yesterday's tally goes down as the second-best showing ever on the Fourth of July, trailing only the original Transformers, which banked $29.1 million on the same Wednesday in 2007.
With mostly positive reviews and a very favorable CineScore from fans, it's pretty clear that The Amazing Spider-Man will turn Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone into official Hollywood A-listers.
