Movie-going audience increases for ‘Superman’ (via Movieguide)
- by admin
Movie-goers in the US are showing up at movie theaters for a third straight week.
The first movie-going spike happened last weekend and has been reported by various outlets.
The uptick in the number of movie-goers comes as the movie, starring Christopher Reeve and Diane Lane, has been widely praised for its visuals and performances.
In its second week of availability, the film had a record opening weekend of $17.2 million, breaking the previous record for a superhero film by $10 million.
In total, the movie is the third-highest-grossing movie in history in the U.S. behind “The Avengers” ($150 million) and “The Dark Knight” ($167 million).
The film was also the third best-reviewed film of all time, according to the film’s website.
As a result, Warner Bros. is reporting that the superhero movie is now the top-grosser movie of all-time in the United States.
That means that the film is the highest-grossed film in the history of the Warner Bros.-Universal Pictures studio.
This weekend, Warner is also planning a two-day event featuring the movie.
