On this day in film history, “Spider-Man” starring Tobey Maguire, and directed by Sam Raimi, became the fastest to $100 million in Hollywood box office history. Previous films such as “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone” and “Star-Wars: The Phantom Menace” had taken five days to reach that mark, “Spider-Man” took only the weekend. However, as the Greek philosopher Heraclitus philosophized, “The only constant is change.” (that may not be a direct quote, but that was that dude’s mantra); both “Spider-Man” sequels and “The Dark Knight” would all break that record. “The Dark Knight” would go on to do more than $150 million over opening weekend. So, boom, there you go, a little trivia that you’ll never use. Now, enough of this, you’ve got tequila, cerveza, and tacos to attend to. Fiesta!
