Spider-Man 3 placed third at the box office over the first three days of the Memorial Day weekend -- and also kept its opening weekend record.

Including shows on Thursday night, Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's Ends -- which opened in a record 4,362 theaters -- brought in an estimated $126.5 million, including $112.5 million on Friday through Sunday.

Neither figure challenged Spider-Man 3's opening weekend record of $151.2 million set earlier this month.

In its fourth weekend, Spider-Man 3 brought in an estimated $13.7 million, pushing its total over the $300-million mark to $303.3 million.

Despite its record opening, Spider-Man 3 might still wind up only third in the series' box office. Spider-Man pulled in $403.7 million, and Spider-Man 2 pulled in $373.6 million.


Univesal Pictures has released a synopsis for The Incredible Hulk, the Marvel Studios film it will distribute next year.

Here's how the film is described:

"The explosive, action-packed adventure in one of the all-time most popular superhero sagas unfolds with a cure in reach for the world's most primal force of fury: The Incredible Hulk. We find scientist Bruce Banner (Edward Norton) living in shadows, scouring the planet for an antidote. But the warmongers who dream of abusing his powers won't leave him alone, nor will his need to be with the only woman he has ever loved, Betty Ross (Liv Tyler).

"Upon returning to civilization, our brilliant doctor is ruthlessly pursued by The Abomination (Tim Roth) -- a nightmarish beast of pure adrenaline and aggression whose powers match The Hulk's own. A fight of comic-book proportions ensues as Banner must call upon the hero within to rescue New York City from total destruction. And on June 13, 2008, one scientist must make an agonizing final choice -- accept a peaceful life as Bruce Banner or the creature he could permanently become: The Incredible Hulk."

Production of the film -- written by Zak Penn and directed by Louis Leterrier -- is expected to start next month in Toronto.
