Spider-Man 3 Swings Through Box Office Records

Not only did Spider-Man 3 break box office records in South Korea and Tokyo, but it smashed the previous US opening weekend record set by Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest last July. It's already been estimated that in the US, Spider-Man 3 brought in $148 million USD in three days, topping $135 million USD by Pirates 2. With Pirates 3 opening later this month, it will interesting to see if the next movie will steal the crown from Spider-Man 3. I'm sure Pirates 3 will come close, but $148 million USD in one weekend will be a tough one to top. Spider-Man 3 is a very fun, entertaining, action-packed, and even comedic movie. I was surprised that they had more humor in this one than Spider-Man 2. Some of those scenes with Peter Parker (like when he started wearing the black costume under his street clothes) were hilarious. And there were some cool surprises in the plot. One can only wonder if visions of Carnage are dancing in the heads of the creators of Spider-Man 4.
