Columbia Pictures(NEW YORK) — The Amazing Spider-Man, Sony’s 3D reboot of the Spider-Man franchise starring Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone, earned roughly $35 million when it debuted Tuesday, a record for that day of the week.

It easily surpassed the $27.9 million debut of Transformers on Tuesday, July 3, 2007, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The Amazing Spider-Man’s opening-day gross included $7.5 million in Monday midnight earnings, and about 300 IMAX theaters contributed $4 million to the total.  Some industry insiders believe the film could earn between $120 million and $140 million during its six-day debut through this weekend.
