Box Office: “Spider Man” Finally Passes “Avatar” for 3rd Place, “Marry Me” Makes the Most of Valentine’s Day


We’ve been waiting for this and now it’s happened.

On Monday night, “Spider Man” passed “Avatar” at the box office and became the third highest grossing film of all time. “Spider Man” raked in $1.6 million on Monday and now stands at $760,988,686. Congrats to all. I’d love a poll to see who’s paid to see this movie the most number of times. By now everyone in the Western World has to have seen it once or twice.

Also, Monday, “Marry Me” brought in $3 million. It was the perfect Valentine’s Day movie. Now with $11 million total since Thursday. The Jennifer Lopez romcom will likely peter out during the week. But they made more money last night than they did on Sunday or Friday. LOL. If the movie only had been better, Universal could have made something out of it. We’ll see how the rest of the week goes…
