MAN OF THE MOMENT
Spider-Man was certainly able to draw audiences into his web. The comic-book action hero's big-screen debut garnered a record-breaking $114 million in its opening weekend. Toppling the previous benchmark held by last fall's Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, which earned $90.3 million in its first three days, Spidey smashed other records by taking home the most single-day receipts and also for breaking the hundred million dollar mark the fastest. The Scorpion King held on to the No. 2 spot with a distant $9.6 million. Rounding out the top five were Changing Lanes (No. 3 with $5.6 million), Murder by Numbers (No. 4 with $3.8 million) and The Rookie and Life or Something Like It, which tied for the fifth spot with $3.3 million each. New gang movie Deuces Wild was DOA in its debut, grossing $2.7 million for seventh place. And Woody Allen's newest film, Hollywood Ending, got off to a dismal start, barely grabbing 10th place by tying with Panic Room at $2.2 million.
