'Spider-Man 3' Sets Opening Day Record - 'Spider-Man 3' Sets Opening Day Record: "Sam Raimi's 'Spider-Man 3' broke a record on Friday.

The third installment of the Marvel Comics adventure took in $59 million, besting the previous record holder by $4 million. Last year, 'Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl,' had an opening day of $55 million.

This is quite a coup for Sony Pictures and Columbia Pictures which had to face a long running time for the film (2 hours, 18 minutes) and somewhat mixed to negative reviews from a number of newspapers.

But in the end 'Spider Man 3' has already proven to be such an international hit that a four installment is already being talked about.

Rest assured, these numbers virtually guarantee a fourth installment of the “Spider-Man” saga, with all the actors repeating their roles—even the ones who don’t seem like they might be able to."
