LOS ANGELES – Spider-Man caught just about everyone in his web. The super hero’s latest adventure, “Spider-Man 3,” smashed box-office records with a $148 million haul in its first three days, according to studio estimates Sunday.

That put it ahead of the previous all-time weekend debut of $135.6 million set last summer by “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest.”

With $59.3 million on opening day Friday, “Spider-Man 3” also broke the single-day box-office record, also held by “Dead Man’s Chest” with $55.8 million in its first day. SOURCE
