Spider-Man slipped a bit on Tuesday as the advent of Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones drew nearer. The Marvel Comics adaptation nabbed $4,527,566, off 54.6% from last Tuesday and down 13.1% from Monday. Movies usually get a slight Tuesday bump-up from Monday by their second week.

Still, Spider-Man has snared $232,778,846 after just 12 days, moving up one spot on the all time chart from Monday to No. 27. The famed webslinger's tally resides between Cast Away's $233,632,142 and The Lost World: Jurassic Park's $229,086,679. By the time Attack of the Clones hits theaters Thursday, Spidey will likely be at about $237 million, enough to rank at No. 25.

More importantly, Spider-Man looks like it will break yet another record by becoming the fastest movie to scale $300 million. That's a feat Box Office Mojo is now projecting it will pull off by its 24th day of release (May 26).

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. On its second Tuesday, it grossed $5,459,637 for $212,558,695 after 14 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.
