BOX OFFICE: Faster Than A Speeding Bullet! MAN OF STEEL Hits $345.6M Worldwide After 9 Days
We brought you news on Man of Steel's performance at the North American box office earlier today, but now we have the latest international numbers. Despite a larger than expected drop domestically, the worldwide cume is already closing in on $350 million!
Many fans despaired when it was revealed that stiff competition from Monsters University and World War Z would push Man of Steel down to third place at the North American box office. However, we have some news which should help brighten your day! Now released across 52 markets, the Zack Snyder helmed and Christopher Nolan produced reboot grossed $19.7 million yesterday giving it an overseas total of $135.6 million. Add this to its current domestic total of around $210 million as of Sunday, and Man of Steel now has an impressive worldwide cume of $345.6 million after only nine days of release. It opens in a further 27 markets this weekend, including big money countries like China (where it has so far grossed $11.7 million in two days) and Russia (where it opened with $3.15 million; a figure not too far behind that of Iron Man 3). The film has also done well in countries like France and Germany, while it will roll out to countries such as Australia, Brazil and Japan in the coming weeks and months. Stay tuned to CBM for updates!
