Even Peter's beloved Aunt May (Rosemary Harris), who has fallen on hard times after the death of Uncle Ben, begins to have doubts about her nephew.Peter's life is about to become even more complicated as he encounters a formidable new foe -- Dr. Otto Octavius (Alfred Molina). Peter must use all the powers at his disposal to try to stop this diabolical madman in his octagonal tracks.
Now that it's been out for six days, are we done talking about Star Wars: The Force Awakens yet? Not by a long shot! Still in its first full week of release, the long-anticipated sequel has broken yet another big box office record. One that has been held by director Sam Raimi's Spider-Man 2 since 2004. Early morning estimates for Disney's first LucasFilm release have the movie pulling in between $40 million to $40.2 million on Monday, from 4,134 venues. This blows Spider-Man 2's first Monday take of $27.7 million out of the water, towering over the gross by 44%.
The Force Awakens has now pulled in somewhere north of $288 million since it was released for preview screenings across the country last Thursday, December 17. Disney is expected to deliver confirmed totals later today. Over the weekend, industry estimates were larger than Disney's actual figures when the smoke cleared. But it's clear that Star Wars: The Force Awakens has more than shattered this Monday record held for the past decade. Heck, it obliterated it.Read More
