That first day number for 300 was the second-highest ever for an R-rated film,below the $42.5 million tally that Warners The Matrix Reloaded took in in its first day back in 2003.  ‘Reloaded’ is the previous widest release for an R-rated film with 3,603 theaters.  It took in $91.8 million for its first weekend.

There’s also a brand new Watchmen uncensored scene and interview that aired on Cinemax HD which you can check out after the jump.

Watchmen hits theaters on March 6, 2009.
