Everyone got it in their head to take dad to the movies this Father's Day Weekend, and the latest Superman epic, "Man of Steel" was the film to see. Raking in $200.3 million in just four days, crowds ignored negative or mixed reviews to make it this weekend's box office champ.
Moviegoers ignored mostly negative reviews to make "Man of Steel" the top movie of this past weekend.
LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - In a change of pace, Sunday matinees performed just as strongly as Saturday matinees. Father's Day and Man Of Steel "make a great combo. Best Father's Day combo of all time," Warner Bros Pictures President, Domestic Distribution, Dan Fellman declared. "Amazing results for Sunday. No drop from Saturday!"
Even with a running time of two hours and 23 minutes, the Chris Nolan-Zack Snyder-David S. Goyer-Henry Cavill PG-13 "tent pole" release set a new June best-ever opening weekend record.
"Man of Steel" was the best debut of 2013 behind only Disney/Marvel's "Iron Man 3." Internationally, Warner Bros says "Man of Steel" ranked #1 everywhere with a gross of $71.6M from 9,710 screens in the 24 overseas markets in release.
"In North America, Superman audiences thumbed their noses at the negative reviews from film critics and gave it an "A-" CinemaScore. Man of Steel' beat all expectations," a Warner Bros executive says.
Sony/Columbia Pictures' raunchy apocalyptic comedy "This Is The End" came in at second. With a dearth of both "R"-rated movies or comedies in the marketplace, "This is the End" raked in $32.8 million over a five-day period, which is what it cost to produce.
The Top Ten at the nation's movies theaters went like this:
1. "Man of Steel"
2. "This is the End"
3. "Now You See Me"
4. "Fast & Furious 6"
5. "The Purge"
6. "The Internship"
8. "Star Trek Into Darkness"
9. "After Earth"
10. "Iron Man 3"
