“Spider-Man” shattered every opening record on books with an unprecedented $114 million weekend, according to studio estimates. Never before in Hollywood history has a movie grossed over $100 million in its first three days, not even when taking ticket price inflation into account. To put that figure into further perspective, uber-blockbusters “Stars Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace” and “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone” took 5 days to hit that mark. [More]

But “The Lord of the Rings” was still in the top 20 at No. 19 with an estimated $430,000 from 408 theaters, down 46% from last weekend. The epic adventure’s 138-day total stands at $308.8 million, and it should surpass “Return of the Jedi” $309.3 million total within the next two weeks to become the 9th highest grossing movie of all time. The longevity of “Rings” is the kind that “Spider-Man” can only wish for. [More]
