You know that person you constantly hear saying “no one goes to the movies anymore”? Punch that person in the face. I went to the movies last night and had to wait in line for over an hour to make sure I could get a decent seat. That’s right folks, I waited, therefore movies are still insanely popular. Boom! Solid logic.
My amazing research and debate skills aside, today does mark the day that a film made over $100 million at the box office in a weekend. Can you guess what film that was? Too late! It was Spider-man back in 2002.
While this was an enormous achievement at the time, breaking $100 million has now become common place for huge blockbuster movies. In fact, since 2002, Spider-Man now has fallen to 25th all time for the fastest movie to generate $100 million. You can check out the list here.
