BOX OFFICE: Analysts Now Predict A $650 - $700M Final Worldwide Total For MAN OF STEEL
Following the news that Man of Steel has now passed $500 million at the worldwide box office, analysts are now predicting a final worldwide cume of between $650 - $700 million. That's a little under twice as much as fellow reboot Batman Begins earned not too long ago. Read on for details!
According to numerous box office analysts, Man of Steel - which passed $500 million during its third week of release - looks set to ultimately gross upwards of $650 million worldwide. Some even believe that it could approach $700 million, but that depends on how well it continues to perform against some very stiff competition which includes the likes of Monsters University and Pacific Rim. Anyway, to put these numbers into perspective for you, here are a selection of worldwide grosses for similar comic book movies. The Amazing Spider-Man took over $752 million worldwide last year, Batman Begins would earn only $374 million (although its sequels did end up making upwards of $1 billion each) and similarly patriotic superhero Captain America: The First Avenger took a total of $386 million in his big screen debut. Oh, and the last Superman movie - Superman Returns - surprising earned $391 million. As you can see, a sequel for Man of Steel is as good as guaranteed, while it wouldn't be TOO much of a surprise for that movie to follow in the footsteps of the last two instalments of The Dark Knight Trilogy by making over $1 billion. What do you guys think?
