Man of Steel soars at box office

Jun 17 2013, 2:14am CDT | by

'Man of Steel' has broken the record for the highest grossing opening weekend in June.

Warner Bros.' Superman movie reboot starring Henry Cavill and directed by Zack Snyder soared at the box office last weekend, taking $125 million upon its release in the United States and $197 million worldwide in just four days.

The film has overtaken Disney's 'Toy Story 3' for the most money made during a typical weekend in the month of June, earning $113.1 million between Friday (14.06.13) and Sunday (16.06.13), which puts it ahead of the $110.3 million grossed by the cartoon flick in 2010.

Warner Bros. president of domestic distribution Dan Fellman said: ''The movie is a perfect blend of a superhero who reaches not only the fanboy audience but the family audience as well, with great results from both.''

The superhero caper - which co-stars Amy Adams, Michael Shannon, Russell Crowe and Kevin Costner - has also been incredibly successful around the world, particularly in Cavill's home country, the United Kingdom, where it took $17.1 million over the weekend.

'Man of Steel' has been met with positive reviews from fans and critics alike and Warner Bros. has already tasked writer David S. Goyer with penning a sequel.

Thanks to Warner Bros'. announcement that they have seven superhero films lined up through May of 2018, we know that Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is just the beginning. But, what those movies are -- so far -- has just been conjecture. But the editors over ...

Photo: Eisenberg Covers Up On "Superman" Set

Sep 1 2014 2:47pm CDT | Source: dark horizons

There's still no sign of an official reveal of Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor in the upcoming "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" film at Warner Bros. Pictures. The actor hasn't been photographed anywhere near the Detroit set in weeks - until today. Even so, the new paparazzi set photos sport Eisenberg covering his head with a towel so no-one is quite sure whether or not he will be bald for the role, or a ...

Late last month Warner Bros. Pictures and Zack Snyder released a first look at Gal Gadot in her Wonder Woman costume during the "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" panel at this year's San Diego Comic-Con. So far the costume has been met with a mostly positive response, but today comes word from one person whose opinion carries more weight than others - the original Wonder Woman herself actress Lynda Carter. Carter, who played the DC heroine during the 1970s on TV, tells Acc ...

If you thought "Man of Steel" was a bit dour and lacking a sense of humor, it turns out there may have been a reason for that. Hitfix has reported that according to multiple sources, there is a mandate at Warner Bros. regarding any of the DC superhero films in development. That mandate is just two simple, direct words: "No jokes." Wrtier Drew McWeeny says: "Last week was a ...
