Spider-Man 3 Slings to a Record-Breaking Weekend

We knew Spider-Man 3 was going to have a big first weekend — but how big? Well, the movie brought in an estimated $148 million, making it the biggest opening weekend ever in North America, according to Variety. The numbers quickly ignited sequel talk, with a Sony executive gushing that there would be "a fourth and a fifth and a sixth and a seventh" Spidey flick.

Just how good was the web-slinger? Well, besides bumping Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest from the top of the all-time opening weekend leaderboard, it also had a bigger opening than either of the first two movies in the Spider-Man franchise. It also now holds the record for the biggest opening-weekend worldwide, netting a whopping $375 million. And, just for good measure, it also recorded the biggest Imax opening ever, topping 300.

With numbers like that, it seems almost irrelevant to talk about other movies. But just in case you were wondering, Disturbia continued to hold its own, finishing second by bringing in $5.7 million. Fracture came in third, followed by The Invisible and Next. Lucky You wasn't so lucky after all, straggling into sixth place with just $2.5 million.

This movie was not that good, even relative to the other Spider-Man movies.

Any word when we can stop trying to measure a film's success or failure based on $$$$ instead of numbers?!! I need to see NUMBERS !! this dollar amount is worthless because of inflation.
