Spiderman 3 smashes Box Office records!!

Spider-Man has lost none of his bite, setting box office records around the world in his third crimefighting salvo.

The third installment has sold an estimated $375 million worth of tickets worldwide, since opening internationally on May 1, distributor Columbia Pictures said on Sunday.

That is the highest opening since “Stars Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith” opened to $254 million in 2005, the — Revenge of the Sith” opened to $254 million in 2005, the Sony Corp. studio said

In North America, the film earned $148 million since launching on Friday, smashing the opening-weekend of $135.6 million set last July by Walt Disney Co.’s “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest.”

The film also set a single-day record with Friday sales of $59.3 million, beating the $55.8 million record also held by the “Pirates” sequel.

The first “Spider-Man,” in 2002, started off with a then-record $114.8 million, and finished with $403.7 million. Two years later, “Spider-Man 2” totaled $373 million; it opened on a Wednesday, making weekend comparisons difficult. Pascal said she hoped to hit $400 million with the new film.

A script for “Spider-Man 4” is being written, but no talent deals have been signed. “We’re making … as many (films) as I can do,” Pascal said.
