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.

Whoa! Bad Robot Shows Off the Millennium Falcon with a Bonus Part

Sep 18 2014 11:09am CDT | Source: First Showing

There's been a fun little back and forth between the productions of Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice and Star Wars: Episode VII over the past few months. Director Zack Snyder kicked it off with a picture of Henry Cavill as a Jedi (inexplicably with a red lightsaber), and went on to create an action figure scene with Batman on Tatooine with R2-D2 and most recently, a Stormtrooper getting caught trying to steal the new Batmobile. Bad Robot previously fired back ...

BATMAN V SUPERMAN Video Sends the Batmobile on a Chase

Sep 18 2014 9:31am CDT | Source: Collider

The past week, Batman v Superman news has been all about the Batmobile, and that trend continues with new video.  Instagram user shiva_honey captured some video of the Batmobile speeding down the street in a high speed chase, and I have to say I'm impressed.  It's a big, clunky vehicle and yet it handles corner without missing a beat.  However, I love the second video where the Batmobile is presumable returning to its starting point, and ...

Sep 15 2014 10:36am CDT | Source: movie fanatic

It does not matter who plays the Dark Knight over the years, one thing is congruent: The actor who wears the suit must know how to play angry and not just any kind of rage, but the type that has boiled inside one’s soul for decades. That’ll happen when you watch your parents murdered as a young boy! The moment the casting was announced of Ben Affleck as Batman, we knew that the man who has had more ups and downs in his career than the best Magic Mountain ...
