The new Spider-Man 3 movie is breaking records at the box office left and right!
Spider-Man 3 took in a record US$59 million (HK$460.2 million) in North American cinemas on opening day, breaking the previous all-time high of US$55.8 million for Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest in its first day last summer.
Sony Pictures, the studio behind the Spider-Man franchise, also reported Saturday that the movie took in an additional US$45 million overseas Friday for a worldwide total of US$104 million, a record for single-day grosses globally.
Spider-Man 3, also smashed box-office records with $148 million in its first three days.
Kirsten Dunst and Tobey MacGuire have both said they will not return for a Spider-Man 4, but rumor has it the execs already have replacements in mind such as Mandy Moore to replace Dunst. I guess we'll see how that goes!
