Dropping a mere 38 percent, Spider-Man snared another $71.4 million, the largest second frame ever and the fourth-largest three-day gross, period. The fastest film to reach $200 million, Spider-Man is positioned as this summer’s blockbuster to beat. Does Yoda have enough Force in his saber to rattle Spidey from the summer’s throne? One thing’s for sure: Begun, this box office war has. Bowing at No. 2 and fueled by the heat of Diane Lane’s award-caliber performance, Adrian Lyne’s Unfaithful could continue to offer some sexy counterprogramming in the weeks ahead. Finally, check out that per-site average for Jason X. Coincidence?
