"Spider-Man 3" Continues Box Office Dominance

While no new records were broken this weekend, "Spider-Man 3" continued its dominance at the box office, bringing in $60 million this weekend.

As expected, "Spider-Man 3" continues to dominate the box office a week after its debut. While the film saw a 60% drop in ticket sales from its opening weekend, it still made an estimated $60 million this weekend according to box office tracking site Box Office Mojo, bringing its total cume to $242.1 million in ten days. While a 60% drop in ticket sales from week one to week two would cause most film studios much panic panic, when you consider the film gobbled up a massive and record breaking $150+ million its opening weekend, most critics would agree it's hardly something to be concerned with.

Internationally, the film brought in an additional $85.4 million, for an international cume of $145.4 million. Combined, "Spider-Man 3" has made $621.7 million for its distributor Sony/Columbia. The previous two Spider-Man films ended up with approximately $800 million in total ticket sales each.

The film didn't see much competition its second weekend in release. The #2 position was held by "28 Weeks Later," which pulled in an estimated $10 million. The Lindsday Lohan starrer "Georgia Rules" brought in a paltry $5.9 million.

"Spider-Man 3's" dominance at the box office should continue for a while, as it won't face any major competition until the May 18th opening of "Shrek the Third" followed by "Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End" on May 25th.
