Our DVD and Blu-ray sales estimates are based on weekly retail surveys, which we use to build a weekly market share estimate for each title we are tracking. The market share is converted into a weekly sales estimate based on industry reports on the overall size of the market, including reports published in Media Play News.
For example, if our weekly retail survey estimates that a particular title sold 1% of all units that week, and the industry reports sales of 1,500,000 units in total, we will estimate 15,000 units were sold of that title. The consumer spending estimate is based on the average sales price for the title in the retailers we survey.
We refine our estimates from week to week as more data becomes available. In particular, we adjust weekly sales figures for the quarter once the total market estimates are published by the Digital Entertainment Group. Figures will therefore fluctuate each week, and totals for individual titles can go up or down as we update our estimates.
Because sales figures are estimated based on sampling, they will be more accurate for higher-selling titles.
Home Market Releases for December 3rd, 2020
December 4th, 2020
Tuesday is the day after Cyber Monday, also know as, вЂњOne of the worst days of the year to release something on the home market.вЂќ ThereвЂ™s not a lot to talk about, while the biggest release of the week is also one of the biggest disappointments of the year, but the less said about that, the better. As for Pick of the Week contenders, we have Big Trouble in Little China: CollectorвЂ™s Edition and thatвЂ™s it. There are a few other releases that are close to that level, but none that reach it. More.
Friday Estimates: 12 and Thieves Start Strong with $5.66 million Apiece
January 20th, 2020
As expected, 12 Strong opened in first place on Friday. Technically it tied for first place according to the estimates. It did do a little bit better than expected, earning $5.66 million, which puts it on pace for about $15 million over the weekend. Its reviews got a little bit better since Thursday and are now 56% positive, while it is earning an A from CinemaScore. Clearly this movie is connecting with its target audience. This is great news for Warner Bros., as they only spent $35 million making the movie and likely a little under that advertising it. Strong legs would be a good omen for strong home market sales. On the other hand, I donвЂ™t think its going to find an audience internationally. More.
2020 – Holiday Gift Guide – Part I – First-Run Releases and Franchise Box Sets
November 23rd, 2020
It’s Thanksgiving weekend, which means Black Friday, Cyber Monday, and of course the first installment of our Holiday Gift Guide. This week we will tackle first run releases, and normally franchise box sets as well, but this year none jump out as essential additions to the Holiday Gift guide. Worse still, 2020 has been awful at the box office with potential blockbuster after potential blockbuster getting savaged by critics and struggling at the box office. Additionally, some of the biggest and some of the best have been on the home market for nearly half a year, meaning nearly everyone who would want them, already own them. That doesnвЂ™t mean there are no films worth adding to this list, but the list is a little shorter than usual. On a side note, two of the films on this yearвЂ™s list are from the MCU and it would have been three, but Thor: Ragnarok is still in theaters. If you know someone who loves the MCU , but has all of the movies, then check out this site, which has some more unique gift ideas. I specifically like the Spider-man Drone. More.

It was a terrible summer at the box office, but Spider-Man: Homecoming was one of the few bright spots. It was one of three films to cross $300 million domestically and has a slim shot at finishing in the top five for the year. Does it deserve this success? Or did it thrive just because itвЂ™s part of the MCU? More.
Home Market Releases for October 17th, 2020
October 18th, 2020
It is one of those weeks. ThereвЂ™s a massive release coming out, which has scared away nearly all of the competition, so it is a really shallow week. Fortunately, that huge release is Spider-Man: Homecoming, which is not only one of the biggest hits of the year, it is also one of the reviewed. It isnвЂ™t the only contender for Pick of the Week, but the Blu-ray Combo Pack wins that honor. More.
Weekend Estimates: Dunkirk Gives Emojis a Sad Face
A solid second weekend will be enough to keep Dunkirk at the top of the box office chart this weekend, as The Emoji Movie falls short of a par performance for a family-friendly animated film. Christopher NolanвЂ™s war movie will fall 44% from it openingвЂ”a decent figure these daysвЂ”to earn $28.1 million this time around, according to Warner Bros.вЂ™ projection released on Sunday morning. That will take it past $100 million domestically today, puts it on course for around $200 million domestically in total. More.
Weekend Estimates: Dunkirk, Girls Trip Post Impressive Debuts
Dunkirk will easily top the chart at the box office this weekend, with a $50.5 million opening weekend from 3,720 theaters thatвЂ™s broadly in line with expectations, and also remarkably similar to the first weekend for Interstellar, which opened with $47.5 million from 3,561 theaters back in 2020. It seems that the film has reached the Christopher Nolan fan base, but not extended much beyond that. Remarkably, Pearl Harbor remains the record holder for biggest opening weekend for a World War II movie, with the $59 million it earned back in 2001 (equivalent to roughly $93 million with todayвЂ™s ticket prices). More.
Weekend Wrap-Up: War Goes Well for Apes Earning $56.26 million
The weekend box office chart didnвЂ™t hold a lot of surprises. War for the Planet of the Apes earned first place with a slightly better than predicted result of $56.26 million, while most of the rest of our predictions were also close enough to be considered victories. Overall, the box office plummeted 21% from last weekend reaching $163 million. This was also a little lower than the same weekend last year. The emphasis is on вЂњlittleвЂќ, as it only dropped by 0.062% or about $100,000. On its own, this would be nothing to worry about. However, 2020вЂ™s lead over 2020 has completely evaporated and the year is now 0.19% or $12 million behind last yearвЂ™s pace at $6.21 billion to $6.22 billion. WeвЂ™ve lost about $200 million this summer compared to last year and I donвЂ™t see that turning around any time soon. More.
Weekend Estimates: Apes Top Chart, Helped by Big Spider-Man Drop
A weekend estimate just ahead of our prediction for War for the Planet of the Apes, and a one just below our prediction for Spider-Man: Homecoming means thereвЂ™s a clear winner at the box office. War will come in with $56.5 million, per FoxвЂ™s Sunday morning estimate, while Homecoming will finish second with $45.2 million. More.
Weekend Wrap-Up: Spider-Man has Wondrous $117.03 million Opening
The weekend box office chart held few surprises. Every film in the top five was close to our predictions, while the top two films were a little stronger. This includes Spider-Man: Homecoming, which pulled in $117.03 million during its opening weekend, making it the second fastest debut of the summer. (Only Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 is ahead of it in that regard.) Despicable Me 3 held on better than most films this summer and will become a monster hit thanks to its international numbers. Overall, the box office rose by 22% from last weekend hitting $206 million. Unfortunately, this is still 5.1% lower than the same weekend last year. Before the summer began, 2020 had a $200 million lead over 2006. That lead is now down to just $13 million at $5.95 billion to $5.94 billion. This lead could be completely gone by the weekend. More.
Weekend Estimates: Spider-Man Comes Home to $117 Million Weekend
A $117 million opening weekend is pretty much all Sony could ask for from Spider-Man: Homecoming. ItвЂ™s the second-best debut for the Spider-Man franchise, if you ignore the effects of inflation, and makes it almost certain that the franchise will break its unfortunate streak of earning less at the domestic box office with every new outing. With, reportedly, a more constrained budgetвЂ”this is the least expensive Spider-Man film, adjusted for inflationвЂ”profitability looks assured, and SonyвЂ™s partnership with Disney looks as though itвЂ™s paying off. More.
Friday Estimates: Spider-Man has $50.5 million Reasons to Celebrate its Homecoming
Spider-Man: Homecoming dominated the box office on Friday and in a pleasant surprise, it beat predictions with $50.5 million during its opening day. Its opening day vs. its previews is almost identical to Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2, which would put the film on pace for $130 million over the weekend. Spider-Man: Homecoming did earn better reviews, while both movies earned a solid A from CinemaScore, and many more kids have no school on Monday compared to when Guardians debuted. All of this should help its legs. On the other hand, Homecoming could have a bigger Fanboy Effect, as Spider-Man is a much more established character. Because of that, IвЂ™m going to be a little more cautious and predict a $125 million opening weekend. This is still simply fantastic and the only downside is Sony and Disney have to work together to make this work in the long term. This is SonyвЂ™s second best domestic opening of all time. (Spider-Man 3 is the only one that beats it.) It could open with more than last yearвЂ™s number one domestic hit for the studio, Ghostbusters, earned in total. Sony has a lot of reasons to work with Disney to keep Spider-Man in the MCU. More.
Thursday Night Previews: Spider-Man Swings into Theaters with $15.4 million in Previews
Spider-Man: Homecoming needed to make more than Wonder Woman during its previews in order to match it at the box office. Wonder Woman вЂ™s audience was disproportionately female, especially more mature women. This demographic tends to help a filmвЂ™s legs at the expense of its opening weekend. So if Homecoming only made a little more than the $11.0 million Wonder Woman made, it would fail to crack $100 million over the weekend. Fortunately, it crushed that figure with $15.4 million on Thursday night. This is the third-best figure for previews this year, behind only Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 ($17.0 million) and Beauty and the Beast ($16.3 million). Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 is the better comparison, as the audiences for the two films match up nearly perfectly. If Homecoming does match Guardians вЂ™ legs, then it will earn just over $130 million over the weekend. I think the fact that this is the sixth Spider-Man movie and third incarnation of the character in 15 years will hurt its legs a little bit, but $125 million is the new goal to aim for. The only downside here is behind-the-scenes, as the character is being shared by Sony and Disney and IвЂ™m not sure how long they can work together. More.
Weekend Predictions: Spider-ManвЂ™s Coming Home to the MCU
Spider-Man: Homecoming is the only film opened wide this weekend and that should help it dominate the box office. In fact, it should have the biggest opening since Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2. The competition will put a dent in Despicable Me 3вЂ™s box office during the weekend, but even so, it will likely break even sometime over the weekend. This weekend last year had The Secret Life of Pets at the top with just over $100 million, while there were four other films earning $10 million or more. Spider-Man: Homecoming should top The Secret Life of Pets , but the depth this year wonвЂ™t be as good. If 2020 does lose the year-over-year competition, then its lead over 2020 could evaporate completely. More.
Home Market Releases for June 13th, 2020
ItвЂ™s a good week, but a shallow weak. The biggest release of the week is The Lego Batman Movie, which is also one of the best. There are a couple of other big releases that are must haves, like Dark Matter : Season Two, but the size and quality quickly drop-off after that. As for the Pick of the Week, the John Wick: Chapter Two Blu-ray Combo Pack claims that title. More.
2020 – Holiday Gift Guide – Part I
November 26th, 2020
This Thursday is Thanksgiving, which means this is Black Friday and Cyber Monday, and a ton of shopping. It also means the first installment of our Holiday Gift Guide. Over the next month, we will talk about TV on DVD releases, independent releases, foreign language releases, classics, etc. but this week we start with Major Movie Releases. These are first run releases, franchise box sets, etc. In some ways, this is better than last year, as there were a wider number of big releases that would make great gifts. However, in other ways it is much weaker. I can’t think of a single big franchise box set that came out this year. There are some smaller ones, like the Halloween Box Set, but while the franchise has lasted ten installments and 30 years, how many can you really say are worth repeated viewing? Fortunately, there were plenty of great films to come out this year, starting with what is currently the biggest hit of the year. More.
Weekend Wrap-Up: Godzilla Helps 2020 Climb Back on Top
I thought Godzilla would be a monster hit. I mentioned that possibility in the monthly preview and the weekend predictions. However, I was in the minority and I reduced my expectations. That turns out to be a mistake. Godzilla opened with $93.19 million over the weekend, which is a better opening than The Amazing Spider-Man 2 managed, but it wasn’t quite up to Captain America: The Winter Soldier. It also helped the overall box office soar to $178 million, which is 30% more than last weekend. More importantly, it was 16% more than the same weekend last year. 2020 is now ahead of 2020 by a margin of $185 million or 5.3% at $3.66 billion to $3.48 billion. More.
Weekend Wrap-Up: Neighbors were Louder than Expected
Neighbors got off to a much faster start than expected, as did many of the top five films. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 fell more than 60% during its sophomore stint, but that was expected, at least it was inline with my expectations. Overall, the box office still fell from last weekend, but by 11% to $137 million, which isn’t as bad as it could have been. It was down 14% from the same weekend last year, but that’s a huge improvement from what it was last weekend, so in a small way, it is a bit of a victory. Year-to-date, 2020 has pulled in $3.45 billion, putting it 5.4% ahead of 2020’s pace. That’s down from its peak, but even if 2020 loses next weekend and the weekend after that, 2020 should still remain ahead of last year’s pace. More.
Weekend Predictions: Will Neighbors Have a Good Opening?
It could be an interesting weekend at the box office as The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is expected to fall far enough that Neighbors could win the box office race. That certainly would be a boost for the new release’s box office chances. Earning first place does provide a lot of free publicity. The other two wide releases coming out this week are not expected to be major players at the box office. I’ve heard some buzz that Mom’s Night Out could be a sleeper hit. On the other hand, Legends of Oz: Dorothy’s Return might not open above the Mendoza Line. This weekend last year, Iron Man 3 led the way with $72.53 million, which is more than all three wide releases will make. In fact, last year’s second place film, The Great Gatsby earning $50.09 million, which might be more than all three wide releases make this weekend. On the other hand, depth will be better this time around and that should mitigate the situation a little bit. More.
Weekend Wrap-Up: Spidey Strong, but not Amazing
The summer blockbuster season has begun and it started on a mixed note. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 easily earned first place with more than $90 million. An opening of more than $90 million isn’t a bad number, but it is the lowest opening three-day weekend for a Friday debut in the franchise. Worse still, the overall box office was just $153 million, which is substantially lower than last year’s number one film, Iron Man 3, opened with. $153 million is 32% higher than last weekend, but the start of summer should be bigger than that. It is also 30% lower than the same weekend last year. You usually only see a decline that sharp when there’s a misalignment in a holiday weekend. Granted, 2020 is still ahead of 2020 by a large margin (8.6% or $3.26 billion to $3.01 billion) so we don’t have to worry about 2020 losing that lead any time soon. This is just not a great way to start the summer blockbuster season. More.
Weekend Estimates: Spider-Man Swings into Summer with $92 million
The modern tradition is that first weekend in May starts the Summer season with a super-hero action movie. And Hollywood being the industry that lets no tradition go before it’s beaten it to death, this year we start Summer, on the first weekend in May, with the release of The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Now, the most amazing fact about the Spider-Man franchise is probably that every movie has done worse at the domestic box office than the one before it, even without adjusting for inflation. This is another tradition that looks like it might continue, with Spider-Man 2 opening with $92 millionвЂ”without doubt a very good debut, but one that points towards a final box office around $250 million, or perhaps a shade higher. With The Amazing Spider-Man having made $262 million in 2020, a fourth straight decline for the franchise looks like a 50-50 bet right now. More.
Weekend Predictions: Will Spidey Swing into Action?
It is the official opening of the summer blockbuster season and The Amazing Spider-Man 2 hopes to get the summer off to a fast start. On the positive side, it is the latest installment in one of the most popular comic book franchises. On the negative side, its reviews are below expectations and below the overall positive level. There are no other new releases to pick up the slack should this film fail to live up to lofty expectations at the box office, although The Other Woman should still do well in a counter-programming role. Last year Iron Man 3 dominated the way with $174.14 million during the opening weekend. There’s no way The Amazing Spider-Man 2 will match that this weekend. There is a small chance The Amazing Spider-Man 2 won’t make that in total. More.
2020 Preview: May
It has been a great year so far and April was again a strong month. The box office was led by Captain America: The Winter Soldier, as it became the second film of the year to reach $200 million, while Rio 2 is on pace to become the seventh $100 million hit of the year. Big picture, 2020 has already hit $3 billion, which isn’t a record for this time of the year, but it is $250 million ahead of 2020. That streak ends in May. Don’t get me wrong. There are six films opening this month that at least have a shot at $100 million and two of those should earn more than $200 million and there are two others that at least have a shot at that milestone. Leading the way is The Amazing Spider-Man 2, which is looking to top The Winter Soldier and become the second biggest hit of the year so far. Its main competition this month is X-men: Days of Future Past, while Godzilla also has a shot at $200 million. Unfortunately, this month last year, Iron Man 3 earned more than $400 million, while two other films took in $200 million and seven films in total reached the century mark. That is going to be really hard to replicate this year and 2020 will likely lose some of its lead over 2020. Fortunately, 2020 has such a big lead that unless the box office really slumps, it will end the month with at least a small lead over 2020. More.
DVD and Blu-ray Releases for April 22nd, 2020
April 22nd, 2020
According to Amazon, the top three best selling new releases of the week are a play, a film considered one of the biggest box office bombs of all time, and a yoga exercise DVD. Most weeks, these would be filler. This week, they are the top three releases. There’s not a lot that jumps out as being worth picking up. Sorcerer’s Blu-ray release will interest a lot of people, while the other two contenders for Pick of the Week are Bettie Page Reveals All on Blu-ray and Big Bad Wolves on Blu-ray. Like last week, it came down to a roll of the dice and Bettie Page Reveals All won. More.
2020 – Holiday Gift Guide – Part I
November 23rd, 2020
This weekend is Thanksgiving and as always that means Black Friday and Cyber Monday plus 48 hours of shopping in-between. Unlike most years, I’m only halfway done with my Christmas shopping. So what recent, and not so recent releases are prime candidates for the perfect gift this year? Over the next month, we will go over several dozen possibilities with our annual Holiday Gift Guide, which is divided into into four sections. This week we start with Major Movie Releases. These are first run releases, franchise box sets, etc. However, before we get into the individual titles, we will start with an update on. More.

Spider profit is a binary options application that’s goal is to make traders $30,000 a week. In the testing phase the developers of this product tell us the hundred average people with know trading experience are already achieving profits like these.
Today I’ll be spinning my web around another product in my latest review, you now know that I have an incredible sense of humor.
Spider Profit Review
Like most of new binary products the spider profit sales page provides traders with a video and an email subscription form. Sadly, I’ll have to watch this video together information about the product. The video starts with a man named John asking traders if they worry about money and if they live from one paycheck to another. The narrator of the video feels that most people that have these financial issues will never do anything about them and that the live a stress filled life where all they do is worry. He says that they’ll fall victim to the same thing that happens to most people, they’ll refuse to take action. This continues on for another few minutes, discussing how most people don’t have the guts to change their financial situation and quality of life.
I’m really not sure why the spider profit sales video is focusing so much on this negative aspect of human apathy but it’s quite tiring as I’m hoping to learn about an investment here. After the long diatribe about how people will take advantage of opportunities right in front of them he tells us that he has the solution to all of our financial problems. John says that he has a free binary options system that can change your lives, I’ve heard it all before.
I really don’t see much use getting any further into the spider profit video. I’ve already made my mind up and I won’t be providing a recommendation here. The sales video focuses too much on the lethargic nature of humans and builds up story in which he can provide a solution. There is never any real evidence that suggests John can follow through with his promise. If you something you would like to add to this review please leave your comments or questions below the article now. I appreciate your leadership and hope that you win a couple trades today.

History: (Amazing Spider-Man: Who Am I?#5 – (fb) ) – The Profit, a telepathic super-criminal, enslaved Spider-Man to join his gang. Unbeknownst to the Profit, however, Spider-Man had been sent by SHIELD’s Maria Hill to infiltrate the Profit’s operations.
(Amazing Spider-Man: Who Am I?#2 (fb) – BTS) – The Profit sent Spider-Man, accompanied by the Profit’s goons Larry, Curly, and Moe, to rob a bank. During the robbery, the Profit took control of a guard, using him to warn Spider-Man that “The Profit is watching you”.
(Amazing Spider-Man: Who Am I?#1 – BTS) – After the bank robbery, the Profit telepathically contacted one of the goons and told him to have Spider-Man kill their hostage.
(Amazing Spider-Man: Who Am I?#2-3 – BTS) – The Profit sent Spider-Man and the henchmen to steal the memory-erasing Frederickson-Fumark Machine from a Stark Industries facility, during which Spider-Man fought and defeated, but refused to kill, Iron Man.
(Amazing Spider-Man: Who Am I?#4) – The Profit telepathically appeared to Spider-Man, summoning him to his warehouse base, but Spider-Man had begun to regain his memories, realizing that his collaboration with the villain was a ruse. The Profit decided to wipe Spider-Man’s mind and start again.
(Amazing Spider-Man: Who Am I?#5-6 – BTS) – To power the F-F Machine, which ran on uncut diamonds, the Profit sent Spider-Man, Larry, Curly, and Moe to rob a jewelry store; they took the nearby Mary Jane Watson as a hostage and brought her back to their hideout.
(Amazing Spider-Man: Who Am I?#7) – The Profit hired the Tinkerer to modify the F-F Machine; before long, another Spider-Man (secretly Daredevil in disguise) broke in, battled Spider-Man, and escaped with Mary Jane. The Profit contacted Spider-Man to inquire about the incident.
(Amazing Spider-Man: Who Am I?#8) – As Spider-Man tried to clear his mind, the Profit entered it. He learned that Spider-Man had been sent by SHIELD, then turned Spider-Man’s memories against him, seemingly defeating him and wiping all of his memories.
(Amazing Spider-Man: Who Am I?#9) – The amnesiac Spider-Man woke up and fled; the Profit sent his henchmen after him. The Profit telepathically sensed him in a homeless squatter’s camp; he dispatched his men there to kill everyone – except for Spider-Man.
(Amazing Spider-Man: Who Am I?#10) – Having retrieved Spider-Man (at the cost of Moe), Larry and Curly returned Spider-Man to the Profit. He offered Spider-Man a deal: one more mission, and he would restore Spider-Man’s memories – but erase all of his memories of the Profit. Spider-Man agreed, and the Profit sent him to the Daily Bugle.
(Amazing Spider-Man: Who Am I?#11) – When Spider-Man tried to disrupt the plan while he, Larry, and Curly headed up to the Bugle’s roof to plant the F-F Machine there, the Profit interrupted him, and forced him to continue. They hooked the machine up to the transmitters on the Bugle’s roof, and activated it.
(Amazing Spider-Man: Who Am I#12) – As Spider-Man regained control of himself and moved to destroy the machine, the Profit tried to mentally command him to stop, but Spider-Man overwhelmed him and damaged it. The Profit then revealed to Spider-Man that he had come to the Bugle’s roof himself. He paralyzed Spider-Man, then repaired the device, but Spider-Man shook off his domination again and beat him up. The Profit taunted him, knowing that Spider-Man wouldn’t kill him; instead, however, Spider-Man used the device to project his own traumatic childhood memories into the Profit, leaving him frozen with sadness. SHIELD soon arrived, and took the Profit, Larry, and Curly into custody.

I assume the Profit’s name is a play on “prophet”, but spelled “profit” because he’s a greedy criminal.
The Profit says his mask is a “family heirloom”. Maybe he’s from a long line of psychics?
Amazing Spider-Man: Who Am I? is a little hard to place in continuity – Iron Man’s wearing his Mark 42 armor, but the Daily Bugle is still housed in a skyscraper. I think it basically fits, though.

(Amazing Spider-Man: Who Am I?#2 (fb) / Amazing Spider-Man: Who Am I?#1) – Henchmen for the telepathic criminal known only as the Profit, Larry, Curly, and Moe robbed a bank with a Profit-brainwashed Spider-Man. With the police arriving, they took a hostage and escaped. The Profit ordered them to kill their hostage, and they made Spider-Man push her off a building.
(Amazing Spider-Man: Who Am I?#2) – The henchmen, having failed to notice Spider-Man saving the hostage with a webline, went back to their hideout. One of them got in a fight with Spider-Man, and was quickly defeated. Later, they invaded a Stark facility.
(Amazing Spider-Man: Who Am I?#3) – While Spider-Man distracted Iron Man, Larry, Curly, and Moe broke into the facility to steal the memory-erasing Frederickson-Fumark Machine.
(Amazing Spider-Man: Who Am I?#5) – While bickering amongst themselves, the henchmen summoned Spider-Man to try and figure out how to turn on the F-F Machine. He determined that it needed more of its power source – diamonds. To get them, the henchmen robbed a jewelry store.
(Amazing Spider-Man: Who Am I?#6) – When the police arrived, the henchmen took Mary Jane Watson (who had been in the store) as a hostage and took off in their van. They were displeased at Spider-Man’s insistence that she not be harmed.
(Amazing Spider-Man: Who Am I?#7) – Larry, Curly, and Moe took the F-F Machine to the Tinkerer, who modified it. Suddenly, they were attacked by another Spider-Man (actually Daredevil in disguise), who handily defeated them. The other Spider-Man escaped with Mary Jane.
(Amazing Spider-Man: Who Am I?#9) – When Spider-Man, having been freshly mind-wiped, escaped, the Profit sent his henchmen after the web-slinger. They wanted to kill him, but the Profit insisted he be left alive. The Profit, sensing Spider-Man’s presence in an underground homeless settlement, dispatched the trio there.
(Amazing Spider-Man: Who Am I?#10) – The trio told Spider-Man that if he didn’t come with them, they’d burn the settlement to the ground. Moe took a child hostage, but Spider-Man intimidated him into letting the boy go, then beat him to a pulp. Larry and Curly took Spider-Man to the Profit, leaving Moe to the mercies of the vengeful homeless people.
(Amazing Spider-Man: Who Am I?#11) – Larry and Curly, disguised as delivery men, went with Spider-Man to the Daily Bugle building, where they planned to attach the F-F Machine to its transmitters. While in the elevator up to the roof, Spider-Man rebelled and attacked the henchmen, but he relented after having damaged the elevator, making them climb the rest of the way. Donning tinfoil hats to shield themselves from the machine’s effects, Larry and Curly activated the machine.
(Amazing Spider-Man: Who Am I?#12) – The foil proved ineffective, and Larry and Curly fell victim to the machine; catatonic, they were powerless to stop Spider-Man from smashing it. They regained their memories (Larry remembering his late mother, specifically), just in time for SHIELD to arrest them.
Larry is the bald white guy, Curly is the heavyset white guy with a goatee, and Moe is the black guy with glasses.
