Spider-Man spun his way back to the top of the North American box office. "The Amazing Spider-Man" brought in 65 million dollars over the weekend - that brings its domestic take to 140 million over its six day opening. The film continued to do well internationally, as well. Spidey added 129 million to its global haul this weekend, bringing total sales to more than 341 million.
Last week's top earner, "Ted," fell to second-place with 32.6 million.
Rounding out the top three was Disney/Pixar's "Brave," which took in an additional 20.2 million dollars.
Justin Bieber has filed a harassment complaint against one of the paparazzi who chased him down a Los Angeles freeway - this according to online tabloid TMZ. Bieber was cited for speeding on Friday (July 06) after driving at speeds in excess of 100 miles per hour. Now Bieber says he was trying to out-run paparazzi who, he claims, were driving so recklessly, they put others in danger.
Finally, Angelina Jolie was in Bosnia to attend the Sarajevo Film Festival. While there, the actress and humanitarian was named one of the city's honorary citizens in recognition of her directorial debut film, "In the Land of Blood and Honey."
