The Weekend Winner is a weekly update here on Caught on Set. Every Monday we will post pictures from the set of the movie that wins the box office battle over the weekend.
There were no surprises at the box office this weekend as The Amazing Spider-Man continued it's strong start over the weekend by bringing in $65 million. The comic book based film starring Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone pushed it's total gross to $140 million. The one movie that surprised me over the weekend was Savages, which grossed just over $16 million to come in 4th. I thought that movie, with the cast that it has, would fare much better than a $6,000 average per screen. From Boxofficemojo.com:
1 The Amazing Spider-Man $65,000,000
2 Ted $32,593,000
3 Brave $20,162,000
4 Savages $16,162,000
5 Magic Mike $15,610,000

Ted and Brave are still holding on strong in it's second and third week, respectively, in release. Magic Mike having another strong weekend just goes to show that all you ladies out there love strippers also. The movie about male "dancers" has grossed over $70 million in two weeks, which is 10 times more than the estimated budget of $7 million. Sex sells, no matter who you are selling too.

“A Look Back” is a series of posts we here at Caughtonset.com feature weekly. It’s as simple as the title makes it sound. Each Friday we will take “A Look Back” to the set of a newly released film. Look at pictures from the set today, then watch the movie tonight.
Technically The Amazing Spider-Man has been in theaters most of the week, but this is the movies first weekend so it still counts as being a new release. Besides I don't think any other movie will come close to the amount of money this latest super hero flick will bring in.

Spider-Man earned $35 million on a Tuesday. If that wasn't impressive enough it then brought in $23 million the next day. The folks over at Boxofficemojo.com say that Spidey is on track for a 6-day total of $140 million. That is pretty damn good for a movie that is the 4th in the franchise. Be sure to check out all of the pictures we have from the set including, Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Rhys Ifans, Denis Leary and Martin Sheen.

Ryan and Emma are familiar with each other, having both starred in Crazy Stupid Love, which is in theaters now. She's also playing Andrew Garfield's leading lady in The Amazing Spider-Man, which is due next summer. Basically, her career is booming. Emma told the Herald Sun earlier this week that she's amazed by her success:
"I'm not dealing with it very well. And I'm very aware that it's a moment right now. Of course it's very exciting but time will pass so I'm trying to appreciate the present and live in the moment. If I ever get overwhelmed by everything that's happening to me, I think, 'Get over it, sweetheart. It will be gone one day.'"

The Amazing Spider-Man is wrapping up production on the East Coast after filming earlier this year in Los Angeles. Check out all the latest on-set pics on The Amazing Spider-Man page.
Emma told MTV last November about her mental approach to the new blockbuster film:
"The way I have to approach it, and I think Andrew would agree, is just like any other movie. You're going to put the same amount of focus into this that you would with anything. It just happens to be an exponentially bigger budget. So there's that. It'll probably feel different when we start to do press, but we won't have to deal with that for another year and a half. And there are harnesses I'm going to have to use in this one. That's the only difference. Just the harnesses."

Emma Stone is spotted on the set of her new film The Help Sunday in Los Angeles (Mar. 13).
The Help, based on the novel of the same name by author Kathryn Stockett, follows three friends who strike up an unlikely friendship and upset a small southern town's unspoken set of rules to be followed between white families and African-American maids. Bryce Dallas Howard and Allison Janney also star.
The film has not been without controversy. Ablene Cooper, a Mississippi woman who claims the Aibileen character in the book was based on her, sued Stockett last month for $75,000. Stockett told USA Today:
"The character 'Aibileen Clark' in The Help is a fictional character and is not intended to depict Mrs. Cooper. I've met Mrs. Cooper only briefly. I used the name 'Aibileen' because it resonated with 'Constantine,' the beloved woman who took care of the book's main character in her youth. As readers of The Help know, my Aibileen is a true heroine: she is intelligent, an author, a devoted servant of the Lord and a good mother."
