SPIDER-MAN 3 SETS OPENING-WEEKEND RECORD

There's no better way to say it: Spider-Man 3 was huge.

After breaking the opening day box-office record on Friday, Spider-Man 3 shattered the opening weekend record with an estimated $148 million.

Spider-Man 3 broke the record of $135.6 million, set last year by Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest. Spider-Man had the previous record of $114.8, set in 2002.

Spider-Man 3 took in a record $59 million on its opening day Friday, breaking the previous high of $55.8 million for Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest.

According to Variety, Spider-Man 3 brought in $375 million worldwide in its first week.

The film opened in 4,252 theaters on Friday.

Spider-Man 3 marks the fourth comics-based film to open at No. 1 this year, following Ghost Rider, 300 and TMNT.

Of the 15 Marvel movies released since 1998, 12 have opened at No. 1. Spider-Man 3 becomes the 10th Marvel film to take in at least $100 million.
