'Amazing Spider-Man' Poised to Spin Box-Office Gold

When the "The Amazing Spider-Man" swings into more than 4,000 theaters Tuesday, the villainous Lizard will be Spidey's on-screen nemesis. At the box office, the bad guys could be a foul-mouthed teddy bear and, down the road, a certain Caped Crusader.

Sony is confident that the fourth installment in the $2.5 billion franchise -- it's been five years since the last one -- will bring back fans and make new ones. And box-office analysts agree, projecting a haul between $120 million and $140 million from the six-day July 4 weekend.
