No records were broken last night as Spider-Man netted $7.5 million in total midnight U.S. screenings, $1.2 million of which was from IMAX ticket sales."Harry Potter" still holds the midnight screening record with $43.5 million ("Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2").

Staying in line with Spidey's historical performance, last night's earnings totaled the same as "Spider-Man 3" midnight screenings in 2007, according to Exhibitor Relations Co.
