It only took three days for Spider-Man III to make $148 million in North America, beating the previous record of $135 million set by Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest.
Does this mean a Spider-Man 4 is just around the corner?
Calling the results “spectacular,” [Amy Pascal, co-chairman Sony Pictures Entertainment] said the studio already was at work on the now inevitable “Spider-Man 4.” “We’re a lot further on than we usually are,” she said. “We usually don’t talk about the next movie until the current one is released, but we’re already talking about what we want to do in the next one.” She added that conversations about bringing back Raimi and the other principals would begin once a script is in place because “that’s what they sign on to do.”
Critics and fans have been pretty torn over the film, with some loving it, and some hating it with a passion. What did you think? Take the Major Spoilers Poll to the right!
