Whee!

While official word wont come until later today at the earliest, industry estimates are putting Spider-Man 2s one-day take at near $35 million, putting the film in a dead heat for the highest-grossing Wednesday opening.

The film opened at a reported 2,000 theaters for a midnight showing, according to The Hollywood Reporter, which, according to estimates, brought in $5 million alone. Spider-Man 2 opened on a total of 4,152 theaters, second in film history behind Shrek 2, which opened in 4,163 theaters.

As THR reported, a Sony representative said that many of the midnight showings for the film were sold out, and matinee business was extremely strong.

The highest-grossing Wednesday opening to date was last years The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King at $34.5 million
