Box Office Breakdown:  Viewers Get Caught Up In A Sticky Web

Spider-Man 3

Let’s see if it’s possible for me to say something terribly surprising…

Spider-Man 3 scored the largest domestic debut for a movie ever ($59.8 million on Friday).  Two days later, it broke the box office record for the highest grossing weekend ever ($151 million).  Both records were previously set by Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest.

With no strong competitors next week, Spidey is bound to stay on top.  But all things could change in just a matter of weeks when Shrek rolls into town (May 18th).  And let’s not forget about that Captain Jack Sparrow.  May 25th could be the day that the third Pirates installment sails in to reclaim the box office booty.
