    Friday Box Office: MAN OF STEEL Earns $44 Million on First Full Day in Theaters | Collider

    Man of Steel earned an estimated $44 million on Friday: its first official day in theaters. That total includes $9 million from midnight screenings but not the $12 million from the “advanced screenings” that began Thursday night at 7 pm. So far, the Superman reboot has earned over $56 million in its US debut and is now on track for around $112 million (or $124 total) through Sunday. That would give Man of Steel the highest June opening of all time: ahead of both Toy Story 3 and Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen – though the latter’s Wednesday release date makes comparing weekend results somewhat pointless.

    The takeaway here is that Man of Steel is in excellent shape. With or without Thursday night’s grosses, the film will far exceed Warner Brothers’ projection of $85 million by Sunday – a number it took Superman Returns six days to reach back in 2006. We’ll have more box office news tomorrow including coverage of This is The End, the comedy that is successfully counter-programming Superman.
    Oh, from the 'who knew' department...We saw This is the End @ the Grove last night. Pacific Theaters there is the common denominator(Arclight is the high end) theater for the West Hollywood area just due to it's size/proximity to dinner choices/accessibility. Well, the boys were voting early and often last night. TONS of same sex couples showed up in force for the evening MoS screenings. It was like the PRIDE celebration from last weekend. Never realized but I suppose Supes is capable of being a gay icon. Not mocking, just pointing out a trend I noticed as a tried and true people watcher.

    Interesting opinions coming in on this, very mixed. I think I'll probably wait until it's available outside of theaters.

    I think certain movies you need to see on a screen because of the spectacle. Superman films fall into that category for me.

    Yeah Brownie...Nasti is a known anti Synder propagandist. Don't him sway you.

    That being said, I have not seen yet...so it may actually suck out loud.

    You should take Nasti's thoughts on a Snyder movie the same way people should take your thoughts on a Nolan one. :P

    I do find it kinda funny how as fond of Snyder and meh on Nolan as you are, he's the exact opposite. You guys are like Batman to the other ones Joker.

    That is...actually a very valid point. I look forward to the dissection of MoS next week. Doc Naysay hasn't seen/weighed in yet...so there's the wild card. He's like the Mr. Mxztlplyx of the equation.

    Only thing...NM isn't like my arch enemy or anything. we just STRONGLY disagree on this. Want to set the record straight.

    EDIT:BTW, can I be the clown prince of crime. I think Nasti is more of the cape wearing type.

    I thought it was excellent. The action is a little overkill, but the story is solid. From the reviews I read on rt, most of the critics are nostalgic for the Reeves' Superman. They didn't give this movie a chance. They don't get this movie. It wasn't fun, romantic or campy enough for them. Isn't that what most of us didn't want?

    I don't think I'm spoiling anything when I say there's a lot of collateral damage. it's dismissed as if nothing happened. That & the action was bit much were my only complaints.

    Jor El, Kal El, Pa Kent, Faora & Hardy ruled! Zod was good, but didn't rule. Faora should have been Zod. That's all for now.

    Personally I think you just hate Snyder proportionate to your worship of Nolan...taints your opinion. I'll let you know more after I see it later today.

    And just to review everyone...PLEASE. Moratorium on spoilers till at least next Saturday. One week is fair, if you don't want it spoiled after that it's your obligation to avoid.
    Zack Snyder doesn't even deserve to lick Nolan's balls. There is no comparison between the two. But I'm not absolving Nolan of any wrong doing here. He is after all the one who hired Snyder and I did have some issues with the story itself too. Goyer wrote the script and Nolan was only part of the initial treatment so it's hard to pinpoint exactly what was on Nolan. But I'll say that your criticism of the Batman films being joyless would be better suited for this movie. I can understand Batman being that way because of the nature of the character, but not Superman. There is absolutely no heart in this movie. Pacing, character development, acting, etc. all fall flat which are typical traits of Snyder's films. There is no reason that a 2.5 hour movie should have such underdeveloped characters. He was just rushing to get to the next action sequence. For most of the movie, I felt like I wasn't ready yet for what was happening.
