New Superman “Man Of Steel” races to new box office records

Warner Bros’ and Legendary Pictures’ Man Of Steel grossed $44M in North America on Friday and $36.3M Saturday.

The new Superman pic set a new June best-ever opening weekend record. It was the 2nd 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. That made for a speeding worldwide total of $196.7M in its first 4 days.

I saw the movie today and it meets and exceeds expectations. The visual effects are not to be believed, and Henry Cavill (swoon) has fantastic chemistry with new “Lois Lane” Amy Adams.

Go. Just – go. Great adventure/sci fi/super hero movie. I had a great time. Can’t wait for the next.

AND – Henry Cavill’s “Clark Kent/Superman” is worth the price of admission just to look at him. Oh. My Gawd.
