This week it wasn’t that Spider-Man 3 was going to top the Box Office, it was more about how high it would go. Despite some lackluster reviews from critics, Spidey rolled through its opening weekend to take in an estimated $148 million, a total that would set the record for the Biggest Opening Weekend of All-Time. This is on top of the fact that it topped the Best Single Day record on Friday with $59 million.

So to say the least, we finally know how high Spidey can fly, so let’s see how the rest of the top 10 did:

  1. Spider-Man 3 – $148 million
  2. Disturbia – $5.7 million
  3. Fracture – $3.4 million
  4. The Invisible – $3.1 million
  5. Next – $2.7 million
  6. Lucky You – $2.5 million
  7. Meet the Robinsons – $2.4 million
  8. Blades of Glory – $2.3 million
  9. Hot Fuzz – $2 million
  10. Are We Done Yet? – $1.7 million

Besides the success of Spider-Man 3, there are some other interesting placements within the top 10 this weekend. Notice the severe drop for the Nicholas Cage actioner Next and the fact that The Condemned fell clear out of the top 10, with Are We Done Yet? holding tight to that 10th spot. Of course, all of this is overshadowed by the awe-inspiring weekend had by Spider-Man 3. Will this be the biggest winner of the Summer or is this just the first in a long line of record-smashing weekends? We shall see…
