"Spidey 3" Breaks Records Overseas; Plans Biggest NA Opening Ever

The movie doesn't even open in North America until Friday, but that hasn't stopped "Spider-Man 3" from breaking a few records overseas. Plus it'll be opening in a record number of N.A. theaters, too.

All over Asia, Spidey broke some serious records: Japan, Korea, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore... Just about every country earned the flick a new opening day record. (Don't these people work on Tuesdays?)



The second Spidey sequel also opened in France, Germany and Italy on Tuesday; Australia, Russia and China get it on Thursday; folks in Canada, India, the UK and the US must wait till Friday. Well, midnight Thursday, anyway.

This comes after eight different premieres around the globe, plus the movie played on 14 (!) screens at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York City. And just think: In only a few months "Spider-Man 3" will be just another movie on the Best Buy DVD shelves.
