As Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones looms, Spider-Man continues to rack up super-powerful weekday business. The Marvel Comics adaptation grabbed $5,211,249 on Monday, down a reasonable 52.8% from last Monday.

Spider-Man's total has spun $228,251,280 after just 11 days, up one notch since Sunday on the all time chart to No. 28. The famed webslinger's tally sits between The Lost World: Jurassic Park's $229,086,679 and Rush Hour 2's $226,164,286. By the time Attack of the Clones hits theaters Thursday, Spidey will likely be at about $239 million, which would place it at No. 24.

More importantly, Spider-Man looks like it will break yet another record by becoming the fastest movie to reach $300 million. That's a feat Box Office Mojo is projecting it will pull off by its 23rd day of release (May 25).

Current title holder Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace climbed to $300 million in 28 days en route to a $431,088,297 final gross. Its second Monday wasn't exactly comparable because it landed on the Memorial Day holiday, boosting business to $15,504,435 for $207,099,058 after 13 days. The second fastest to $300 million, Titanic took 44 days on its way to becoming the highest grossing movie of all time at $600,788,188, while Harry Potter crossed the milestone in 52 days and is close to the end of its run with $317,503,512 in the till.
