Man Of Steel Flies High At US Box Office
Superman scores the top spot

It had high box office expectations to meet and Man Of Steel soared, doing brisk business during an early Thursday opening and ending up with a grand total of $125 million in the US since release. It’s a June record, and now the big challenge will be to keep earning in a crowded summer schedule. Regardless, we figure the final few tumblers on the studio coffers' lock will start to spin for the planned sequel’s budget.

Also doing well was Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg’s apocalyptic chuckle-fest This Is The End. The movie opened on Tuesday and by the end of Sunday it had an estimated $32.8 million in the bank, which means it has earned at least its production budget back in less than a week.

Now You See Me stayed strong in third with $10.3 million, while Fast & Furious 6 slipped to fourth and $9.4 million. Rounding out the top five we have The Purge with $8.2 million.

The Internship fell to sixth place, adding $7 million, while Epic was seventh with $6 million. Star Trek Into Darkness slipped a couple of places to eighth and $5.6 million, ahead of After Earth in ninth, which made $3.7 million. Finally, at 10th, Iron Man 3 earned $2.9 million for a current US total of $399.6 million.

RE: As expected!
It's not bad BUT! really if you include 3D figures it hasn't really done better than F&F6? It just goes to show Marvel/Disney has their heads screwed on with the get it out of the gates 1st policy as shown this year with Iron Man & last year with The Avengers. More

As expected!
Unfortunately as with Iron Man 3 good box office returns doesn't promise good movie. Had its moments but not enough of them (and some really dodgy camera work) don't really see where they are going to take the franchise, bored by the end of the film. Actually more convinced now (than before I watched the film) that a Justice League film wont work!! More

Great opening!
That is a great opening. Add a further $72 million for international and that is true blockbuster status. Personally, I loved it. Went on a bit at the end, but otherwise great entertainment. Diane Lane had the line of the movie for me... "Nice suit son" :) Surely a sequel and the Justice League movie is now a given? More
