“Spider-Man 3″ Breaks Weekend Record With Nearly $150M

According to estimates, Spider-Man 3 grossed $148.0M from Friday to Sunday, shattering the previous mark set by Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest ($135.6M).

The film grossed $59.3M on Friday (all-time record for Friday and Single Day), $51.0M on Saturday (an all-time record for the day) and $37.7M on Sunday (also a record).

Worldwide grosses continue to be strong as well, with the film taking in $227M overseas, for a total worldwide take of $375M through Sunday (yet another record).

To recap, Spider-Man 3 now holds the mark for the biggest single day and Friday ($59.3M), biggest Saturday ($51.0M), biggest Sunday ($37.7M), biggest single day worldwide ($104M), biggest opening weekend ($148M) and biggest worldwide opening ($375M).

    SUNDAY AM: I’m told that Spider-Man 3 today has shattered the U.S. box office record set by Pirates 2. With Friday’s precedent-setting U.S. box office of $59.3 million and Saturday’s record $51+ million and Sunday’s estimated $37.7 million, the Sony mega-blockbuster spun the biggest American weekend movie opening of all time. This is a historic Hollywood moment and sensational start to the summer movie season. The figure for U.S. gross was $148 million for Friday through Sunday at 4,252 theaters, the widest release ever, which easily beat the previous record-holder Pirates of the Caribbean 2 and its $135.6 million. (I have been saying that Sony execs were dreaming in the neighborhood of a greedy $150 mil for SM3’s U.S. debut, and they got it by showing the pic almost round-the-clock since 12:01 AM Friday!) Though SM3 fell -14% Saturday compared to Friday, without the midnight shows, that number is actually +4%. This means that, comparatively, the threequel did in two days what it took SM1 three days to do. Weekend box office was up over 70% at U.S. theaters compared to last year — and Spidey 3 captured 80% of the total American gross of $180 mil this Friday through Sunday. I’m told the global gross was expected to be better than $255 million by today, another record. This comes after Spidey 3 on Friday already set the biggest U.S. opening day record and scored the highest single day global gross.
