Spider-man 2: According to The Hollywood Reporter, Spider-Man 2 pulled in a record $180.1 million in its first six days and obliterated other boxoffice highs over the long Fourth of July weekend, according to studio estimates Monday.
The previous best six-day opening had been $146.7 million for The Matrix Reloaded last year.
"I think our hope was to go into the heart of the summer and grab the biggest six days possible. That's pretty much what happened," said Jeff Blake, vice chairman for "Spider-Man 2" distributor Sony.
Last weekend's top film, Michael Moore's Fahrenheit 9/11, fell to second place with $21 million over the four-day weekend, raising its total to $60.1 million. The film, Moore's assault on President Bush's actions regarding the Sept. 11 attacks, could become the first documentary ever to top $100 million.
