Spidey 3 Smashes Records

Spider-Man 3 smashed box-office records in its opening weekend, taking in about $151 million in its first three days of release, the Associated Press reported. That put it ahead of the previous record debut of $135.6 million set last summer by Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest.

With $59.3 million on opening day May 4, Spider-Man 3 broke the single-day box-office record, also held by Dead Man’s Chest ($55.8 million).

Since it began rolling out overseas on May 1, Spider-Man 3 has taken in $227 million in foreign markets, bringing the film’s worldwide total to $375 million. In just days, the movie has grossed $117 million more than its whopping $258 million production budget, the AP reported.

In just two days, it also nearly matched the $114.8 million opening weekend of 2002’s Spider-Man, which had held the debut record until Dead Man’s Chest opened.
