Re: MAN OF STEEL - Grading & Discussion

LOSER OF THE WEEK: Man of Steel. Though it's hard to call a movie a loser when it earned an estimated $41.2 million this weekend. Still, that represents a slide of 65 percent from last weekend's first-place debut. The movie has earned $210.0 million in North America and $283.3 million worldwide in two weeks, again, not really loser territory except by the movie's own lofty standards. Given its estimated $225 million budget, the movie will have to gross about $500 million worldwide to recoup its costs. That'll be an uphill climb, especially with The Lone Ranger opening in two weeks
What a load of B/S, anyone who starts with "Though it's hard to call a movie a loser" should shut up at that point. Man of Steel will break into that $300 million club domestically and be set for a $600-700 million worldwide gross.

As for The Long Ranger, that will flop.
