'Spiderman' sets new record for opening weekend gross receipts

'Spiderman' set a new record for opening weekend box office receipts by grossing more than $114 million, over the May 3 weekend, smashing the previous record of $90.3 million set only last November by 'Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone'. 'Spiderman' also set a new one-day record, taking $43.7 million on Saturday, May 4. It was released to 3615 cinemas.
Both "Spider-Man" and "Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone" were dubbed on Harrison film dubbing consoles, the film consoles of choice for premiere film mixers worldwide.
'Spider-Man' was dubbed at Sony Pictures in Hollywood on two separate Harrison Digital MPC2 film mixing consoles by the award winning mixing duo of Kevin O'Connell and Greg P. Russell, the team that mixed last year's blockbuster 'Pearl Harbor'.
The sound effects predubs for Spider-Man were mixed in the Anthony Quinn Theatre, Sony's newest Harrison Digital MPC2 Theatre that opened last November. The dialogue predubs and the final mix took place in the world famous Cary Grant Theatre at Sony Pictures. Sony Pictures, an all Harrison facility, owns ten Harrison film consoles, five of which are Harrison Digital MPC2's. The other five are analogue MPC's.
'Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone' was dubbed on a Harrison MPC film mixing console at Shepperton Studios in the UK. Shepperton Studios, one of the UK's leading film dubbing facilities, is also an all Harrison film console facility featuring three large MPC film mixing consoles. It was dubbed by the world famous team of Ray Merrin and Graham Daniel in the same historic theatre at Shepperton where such legendary films as "Lawrence of Arabia" were dubbed over half a century ago. The room was completely renovated in 1995 concurrent with the installation of the Harrison MPC film dubbing console.
'Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone' opened in November of 2001 on 3672 movie screens, and has, to date, grossed $935.8 Million according to boxofficereport.com .
Based in Nashville, Tennessee, Harrison is a world leader in the design, manufacture and support of advance technology digital film dubbing consoles as well as professional audio mixing consoles for television broadcast, video post-production, and live sound applications. Harrison continues to expand the capabilities of contemporary digital console architecture and design.
