Yay, great and impressive US opening weekend debut for Man of Steel starring Henry Cavill (Clark Kent/Kal-El) & Amy Adams (Lois Lane). Now playing in theaters near you! The film set new record for June! With an "A-" CinemaScore from general audience and a solid word-of-mouth, Man of Steel, made an impressive estimated total of
$113 $116.6 million weekend debut (not counting the $12 million it earned Thursday night, but it's added for its 4 day total to $125 $128.6 million!!!!). Impressive start for a Superman reboot and non-sequel film that got mixed reviews from film critics, but audiences loved (that's what counts and matter the most) and surpassed all expectations for its opening debut. Also, it's doing great and is #1 in some foreign countries with an estimated $71.6 $73.3 million total (thus far) overseas and worldwide total (so far) of $196.6 $201.9 million! So happy for MOS!
