Big box-office business for 'Spider-Man 3' opening in Asia

'Spider-Man 3' is off and flying, with record-setting opening-day ticket revenues in Asia.

The film topped the first-day grosses for Spideys 1 and 2 in both Japan and South Korea on Tuesday. It enjoyed the biggest opening-day ever for any film in Hong Kong and South Korea.

In Japan, the film's first day brought in an estimated $3.5 million (RUTO2.5 million). In South Korea, the take was $3.4 million (EURO2.5 million).

Sony Pictures' `Spider-Man 3' stars Tobey Maguire as the comic-book superhero, with Kirsten Dunst as his enduring love, Mary Jane Watson.
