Although Spider-Man 2 now holds the opening-day
record, the box-office record for any single day still belongs to Shrek 2, which grossed $44.8 million on
Saturday, 22 May.
Serious Spidey fans showed their devotion by wearing red and blue suits to some of the 4,152 cinemas in the United States and Canada showing the film on Wednesday.
And UK fan's haven't got long to wait - the film opens here on 15 July.
