Spider-Man sequel set for 2004

Spider-Man: 77 errors and counting
A Spider-Man sequel is already in the planning stages, after the film broke box office records in its $114m (£77.5m) opening weekend.

Spider-Man 2 will hit cinemas in exactly two years with Tobey Maguire and Kirsten Dunst reprising their roles as Spider-Man and girlfriend Mary Jane.

Filming on the sequel is scheduled to begin early next year.

Spider-Man film broke the cinema box office record held by Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, which enjoyed opening takings of £61.4m.

The film will face stiff competition when the new Star Wars movie, Attack of the Clones, opens in cinemas on 16 May.

The film has also broken another, perhaps less welcome, record.

Disappearing rucksacks

Fans have so far spotted 77 continuity errors, the most mistakes identified in an opening weekend, according to website movie-mistakes.com.

The mistakes include disappearing rucksacks, clothes that are dirty one minute and clean the next and smashed windows that self-repair.

Jon Sandys, who runs the website, said: "It's obviously possible that it's got a higher than average number of errors, but huge numbers of people are going to see it and that makes for lots of pairs of eyes checking every inch of the screen."

The current number of errors puts Spider-Man at number nine in movie-mistake.com's top 10 of error-ridden films.

The Matrix is the current record holder with 146 errors, followed by Titanic with 135 and The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring with 113.
