Spider-Man 3 picture
Blockbucter title appears to still dominate film audience's attention as "Spider-Man 3" triumphantly holds its position as the top holder on weekend domestic box office ended May 13, 2007 for a great tally of $58.1 million.

Though the number is a hefty 60 percent drop from the superhero saga's record debut a week earlier, it turns out to be over six times more than that collected by runner-up "28 Weeks Later..." since the zombie feat only manages to pull $9.8 million in its first spin on the chart. Poor opening also afflicts another newcomer "Georgia Rule" which merely gains $6.7 million for its third-place feedbag.

May 14, 2007 03:12:25 GMT

Paul McCartney's anticipated announcement regarding The Beatles online catalogue may receive a milder enthusiasm from Apple Inc. Though with the tremendous popularity of the legendary band, analysts think that the catalogue availability won't be a "needle mover".

While currently no digital music company has settled a deal to sell Beatles songs online, Apple Inc's iTunes is the most likely to be the biggest player in the game. Analysts however said that at 99 cents a song, the company wouldn't receive a big profit like it seems to be.
