Holy cow, Batman!
Wait, wrong superhero movie. Regardless, Independence Day is certainly turning into box office gold for Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone and the cast of The Amazing Spider-Man.
According to GossipCop, the Sony film opened yesterday with a reported $35 million (yes, you read that right — $35 million bucks!). This set a record for an opening on a Tuesday. This crushed the former frontrunner in this category, The Transformers. In 2007 the Shia LaBeouf film raked in $27.8 million.
Now that Andrew is literally a household name around the globe (as if he wasn't recognized already thanks to The Social Network), it sounds like he's keeping himself grounded and doesn't want the celebrity status to go to his head.
Last year he told Details, “I realized immediately how much hard work it was going to be, and how much of a minefield it was going to be in terms of all the s–t that comes with it. Stuff that I would like to not have any part of. I mean visibility and being recognized walking down the street. I’m holding out a naïve and ignorant hope that won’t happen….I hope I never blow up."
The British star added, "I hope that I have to audition for every single job I want. I hope that I’m always struggling, really. You develop when you’re struggling. When you’re struggling, you get stronger.”
