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.

Ray Fisher Didn’t Know About ‘Cyborg’ Solo Movie; Already Finished ‘Batman v Superman’ Role

Oct 21 2014 7:30pm CDT | Source: slash film

Besides the fans, the biggest winners of the recent DC Warner Bros. announcement were Jason Momoa, Ezra Miller and Ray Fisher. With a simple press release, each went from up and coming actor to movie star with their own franchise. Momoa, who’ll play Aquaman, is obviously thrilled. We have yet to hear from Miller, who plays The Flash. Now Cyborg’s alter-ego, Ray Fisher, has spoken out. The actor, best known for his work on Broadway, told Entertainment Weekly ...

According to THR, Malone will feature in a “mystery role”, with no details confirmed as yet regarding who exactly she’ll be playing. Rumour has it that she could be appearing as a female version of Robin, although there’s nothing concrete on that ...

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 with a picture of C-3PO p ...

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 the music overlaying the return is Snoop D ...
