More numbers are in. First the good news: New Moon
did not beat the Dark Knight
's opening weekend record ($158,411,483). Now the "meh" news: it also didn't beat Spider-Man 3
's opening weekend total ($151,116,516). It did take the #3 spot on the list away from Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest
, however, by making an estimated $140,700,000
over the weekend.
Worldwide, it ranks as the 7th-best opening ever with an estimate of $258,800,000
As for me, I'm still not planning to ever see it.
