Biggest Hollywood opening ever.  That's what you'll be hearing on Monday morning when the final numbers from "Spider-Man 3" are released.  It looks like $148 million is the number, evicerating "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest" which previously held the record of $135 million.  Nikke Finke's Deadline Hollywood Daily has a breakdown of the numbers.

The reviews for this film are still pretty miserable, including my own.  It has a 45% Cream of the Crop rating on Rottentomatoes.com.  But as we've seen with so many films, there's a real disconnect between the opinions of critics and box office results when it comes to films like "Spider-Man 3" with a dedicated fan base.

    It's the slowest for movies. "Watchmen," the much anticipated film adapted from, arguably, the greatest graphic novel of all time, has stirred the emotions of critics.
