We knew Spider-Man was destined for solid numbers but we never expected it to beat rad reboots like X-Men: First Class and Casino Royale!
Making $65 mil domestically this weekend, Andrew Garfield even gave dark knight's a web facial!
His film earned a third more than Christian Bale's Batman Begins.
Still, Peter Parker's profits don't compare to The Avengers or even Prometheus and Spidey will certainly be outdone by The Dark Knight Rises.
Only ten years removed from Tobey Maguire's dance with a radioactive arachnid, we're surprised audiences enjoyed a nearly identical origin story.
Perhaps it's Garfield and Emma Stone's real life chemistry that kept theaters packed?
