Looking at Box Office Mojo, I was surprised to see that there was about a 5% worldwide box office drop with the Raimi sequel. I'm not certain Foxx is that big of a box office draw, and I think Spidey works best when battling stronger, faster opponents rather than energy-projection types. I was underwhelmed by the leaked battle against Electro, though I am sure the visuals will be much improved in the final version.
Most importantly, this is Spidey's 5th big screen (soon to be followed by 6 and 7) in a relatively short time frame. I think a certain % of comicbook movie fans will have a "been there, done that" response to Garfield and Webb's latest - I know I will.
