Box Office mints on the three tentpoles, as 'Man of Steel' continues as No 1globally

MUMBAI: From a weekend which expected three tentpoles raking in over $50 million respectively, the results have managed to live up to the expectations. Especially Pixar?s Monster University leading at the No 1 position grossed over $137 million worldwide over its first weekend.

Brad?s zombie flick World War Z too bit off a sizable share at the box office with over $110 million worldwide collections. Lagging behind was Warner Bros? and Legendary?s Man of Steel whose sales dropped nearly 65 per cent domestically but ranked number 1 with its worldwide grossings over $89 million.

Zack Synder?s Krptonian red-capped superhero reboot has soared globally over $188 million continuing to be a superhit internationally. Together with a total of $210 million collections in the domestic markets, Man of Steel is nearing the $400 million mark in its second weekend, after battling Pixar?s Monsters and Brad Pitt?s Zombies over the weekend.

The Superman reboot also opened successfully (80 per cent) in China, minting over $25.5 million across 5631 screens, second best behind Warner Bros? Harry Potter finale.

"We?re in great shape moving into the 4th of July holiday playtime with such an iconic character at the helm," said Warner Bros Domestic Distribution president Dan Fellman. "Hoping we have a similar result to the strong day we had on Father?s Day."

Man of Steel promises a brighter weekend with 27 more markets opening this weekend, including the major countries France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Russia and China.
