Los Angeles: Zack Snyder's latest directorial venture
Steel (MOS) is hovering just above expectations with a Friday
collection of $44.1 million and it is being estimated that the
weekend collection of this Hollywood movie will be around $115
million at the USA Box Office.
According to variety.com, the weekend collection of Man of Steel
was estimated at more than the $80 million to $100 million Warner
Bros and other studios predicted by Thursday, but less than a late
Friday figure that had the film at $125 million.
Man of Steel, from Legendary Pictures, Syncopy and DC
Entertainment, earned nearly half of its Friday collection by late
Thursday night, with $21 million coming from late Thursday
screenings, $12 million of which came from a special early
screening deal through Walmart.
It is a strong start for Man of Steel that stars Henry Cavill
as the Superman, but even after you factor in international grosses
- Man of Steel, which also features the like of Russell Crowe,
Kevin Costner and Amy Adams in leads, opens day-and-date in 24
markets - it's not likely to recoup its $225 million budget in its
opening frame. (IANS)
