Box office cheats

While all the media reports on The Matrix Reloaded so far are speculating on an opening weekend to beat Spider-Man, I'd just like to mention they are also cheating. Spider-Man opened exactly at 12:01 on May 3rd and by the end of Sunday had hauled in 114.8 million dollars.

The Matrix Reloaded started running shows at 10:00 PM on Wednesday night and had those grosses rolled into Thursday...and are insisting that the Thursday grosses be counted towards the opening weekend.

So...it just MAY beat Spidey...but it took them an extra day and a half to do it.
