Box Office: Spidey Slips, But Still Outpacing 1 and 2
Spider-Man 3 topped the weekend box office with "just" $60 million - a second-week drop larger than the usual 50 percent for a hit, but more than expected for a film which shattered records with a $151.1 mil opening. Plus, the new sequel's 10-day tally ($242.1 mil) is still outpacing that of Nos. 1 and 2 ($223 and $225 mil, respectively). I still think these matters should be measured by numbers of tickets sold, but apparently I am an idiot. Rounding out the weekend's top five were 28 Weeks Later (opening with $10 mil), Georgia Rule (debuting with $5.9 mil, about enough to cover La Lohan's late days), Disturbia ($4.8 mil) and Delta Farce ($3.5 mil).
