Spider-Man 3 has quickly climbed to dizzying box-office heights throughout Asia, even in light of widespread DVD piracy long in advance of the official theatrical release.
In terms of $$$, SM3 debuted in Japan with $3.47 mil, South Korea $3.46 mil and Hong Kong $958.9K. It was the biggest single day ever recorded in Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand and Philippines. In Taiwan, Hong Kong, Thailand and The Phillipines, the film outgrossed the combined opening day of Spider-Man and Spider-Man 2. Needless to say, Sony Pictures is relieved at all the record-setting releases in 8 Asian territories. tobey.jpgThe pic scored the biggest opening day ever in South Korea and Hong Kong. In Japan, it set the biggest Tuesday gross ever, including openings.
