Spider-Man 3 box office eclipses national debt!
Well, given all those mixed reviews and all that bitchy word-of-mouth, Sony’s Spider-Man 3 managed to only rake in a mere $148,000,000 (estimated) in its premiere North American three day weekend.
Which means by the time it’s done, and all the pay-per-view and cable revenue has been added, and all the various DVD incarnations have come out, and all that worldwide income is counted, and all the merchandising and licensing revenue is tallied, Spider-Man 3 will bring in something in the neighborhood of a billion plus.
That’s a very nice neighborhood.
Spidey-3 beats the poo out of last year’s record-breaking Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest which scored a mere $135.6 million. But Pirates 3 is coming out soon in the Big Battle of the 3-Quels… and Pirates has Keith Richards going for it!
Don’t get your fingers and toes too close to that one.
