Man of Steel Drops to 3rd But Crosses $200 Million
It was an interesting weekend and not much of a shocker as Man of Steel wasn’t able to stay in the number one spot in its second week as it faced stiff competition. The movie fell to third place behind Monsters University and World War Z, which beat expectations.
Man of Steel dropped about 65% from the previous week, but added $41.2 million to its domestic grosses. That had it cross the $200 million line. It currently stands at $210 million domestically and another $73.3 million globally. With that number the film has earned back its budget, but probably not marketing costs yet.
The film has grossed the most out of any Superman film domestically so far, beating Superman Returns by about $10 million in just two weeks. Adjusted for inflation, things are a different story. That statistic has the film sitting in fourth place out of the six films released. It would need to over double its domestic gross to get to the top stop. I don’t see that happening with the summer release schedule. Globally the film sits in third place of all the movies released.
