Everyone's favorite webslinger was king of the box office again, claiming $60 million, besting the strongest newcomer, the horror sequel 28 Weeks Later, which debuted at #2 with a so-so $10 million. That is a steep 60% decline from last week for Spider-Man 3 (bad word of mouth, perhaps?), but it's total gross now stands at $242,071,000, which isn't anything to sniff at.

Gary Marshall's Georgia Rule stumbled out of the gate with $5,879,000, while the Blue Collar crew failed to make an impression with Delta Farce, which only grossed $3,500,000. The Zach Braff vehicle The Ex crashed and burned at #12 with $1,355,000.

Spidey will most likely not repeat his box-office reign for a third week, as Dreamworks' Shrek the Third opens on Friday.
