BOX OFFICE: MAN OF STEEL Now Set For An Opening Weekend Of $120 - $135 Million
Yes, that's a pretty rough estimate, but far more than what analysts initially predicted. Indeed, it seems that Man of Steel will soar past the previously mentioned $85 million, securing the future of the DC Cinematic Universe at the same time. Read on for details!
So, yeah, we should probably just consider the Man of Steel sequel and Justice League movie to be 100% confirmed at this point! After studio estimates of $85 million and expert predictions of MAYBE $100 million, the Zack Snyder helmed reboot now looks set to earn an incredible $114 - $120 million this weekend and something closer to $126 - $130 million when the Thursday evening screenings are taken into account. There aren't any official numbers as of yet, but Deadline reports that their sources have informed them that Man of Steel will take between $42.5 - $47.7 million today. Warner Bros. are said to be very happy with this news and it's thought that we will have some slightly more accurate numbers by later tonight or early tomorrow. Either way, whatever faults some have found with the movie - myself included - there's no denying that it's an effective and enjoyable blockbuster whose sequel will greatly benefit from not having an origin story to slog through. As for Justice League, The Avengers may soon have some competition...
