BOX OFFICE: Zack Snyder's MAN OF STEEL Set To Be The #1 Movie Worldwide With $200 Million
Man of Steel continues to go from strength to strength as the latest figures reveal that it is also dominating overseas as well, and is currently the #1 movie at the worldwide box office. If it lives up to expectations, the movie will have a total gross of over $200 million by close of business tomorrow.
Thanks to Deadline, we now have an update on Man of Steel's performance at the international box office. After grossing $44 million on Friday in North America, the reboot holds the honour of having the highest Friday June opening of all-time. Despite many recent unimpressive 3D conversions, audiences have flocked to see this fresh take on Superman in any format they can, although it the 3D screens which generated 42% of its total box office revenue. Unofficial projections now have Man of Steel pegged as having a four day opening of $115 - 125 million. The Zack Snyder helmed and Christopher Nolan produced movie is #1 everywhere it has opened across the world with a total of $17.6 million from 24 markets (although the running cume is said to be $25.9 million). It's performed particularly well in the UK with an impressive £3.3 million ($5.2 million). If Man of Steel continues to perform as analysts have predicted, it will have taken around $151 million by tomorrow. Of course, now we just have to wait and see how well it does in week two!
UPDATE: Thanks to The Hollywood Reporter, we now have some clarification. $151 million is actually Man of Steel's CURRENT worldwide cume and the movie should in fact pass $200 million by tomorrow. Not bad, eh? Do you think we'll get sequel news at the San Diego Comic Con?
