Fast & Furious 6 had collected Rs 21.55 crores nett
from 1,200 screens at the Indian Box Office in its opening weekend.
Whereas Man of Steel, which released with Hindi, Tamil and
Telugu version in 800 screens nationwide, has minted Rs 21 crores
at Indian Box Office in its first weekend. Although it has failed
to beat the weekend record of Fast & Furious 6, its
per screen average is much higher than that of the latter.
Man of Steel has got off to a flying start in the USA
Box Office with its first weekend collection reaching USD 125.2
million. But the bosses of the Warner Bros Pictures (WBP) are much
happier with its performance in India. Talking to PTI, Denzil Dias,
MD of the WBP, said, "We're thrilled at the tremendous response
we've seen from audiences across India to Zack Snyder's exciting
new vision of the iconic Super Hero."
Produced by Charles Roven, Christopher Nolan, Emma Thomas and
Deborah Snyder, Man of Steel also features Hollywood
A-listers like Amy Adams, Michael Shannon, Kevin Costner, Diane
Lane and Russell Crowe. David S Goyer has written story and
screenplay for this much-hyped superman flick.
Man of Steel takes a look at Superman's origin by telling the story of his childhood, where the superhero learns that he is not from earth and has extraordinary powers. As a young man, he journeys to discover where he came from and what he was sent here to do. But the hero in him must emerge if he has to save the world from annihilation and become the symbol of hope for all mankind.
