Spider-Man 3 Web Sales Top Predecessor

The Hollywood Reporter says that moviegoers are buying Spider-Man 3 tickets online at a much faster rate than they did for the second film almost two weeks out.

MovieTickets.com reported that Spidey 3 tickets are selling at three times the rate of “Spider-Man 2” at the same time in the sales cycle and are “tracking to beat all expectations.”

Fandango.com shows the new film is selling four times faster than did the previous movie in the franchise and accounted for 47% of all ticket sales early in the day Monday.

The new film, produced and distributed by Sony Corp.’s Columbia Pictures and Marvel Entertainment Inc., has sold out dozens of the thousand or so midnight showings scheduled for May 3, said Fandango spokesman Harry Medved.
