Spider-Man 2 Leads Record July Box Office

The Hollywood Reporter says Spider-Man 2 lead a record July box office…

Thanks largely to the sensational ticket sales for “Spider-Man 2,” July receipts at the North American box office reached record levels, surpassing the $1.3 billion mark for the first time.

“Spider-Man 2″ picked up $335.8 million, marking the first time a film grossed more than $300 million in July. And unlike July 2003, where aggregate box office sales hit a record high but admissions were lackluster at best, this year’s estimated ticket unit total breaks a long-standing record for the month.

The national box office tally in July was $1.32 billion, up a solid 10% from the $1.2 billion generated in July 2003, which was the previous high for the period. In July of last year, Disney’s “Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl” and Warner Bros. Pictures’ “Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines” were the box office leaders.
