Man of Steel Scores the Biggest June Opening Weekend Ever
We knew that it was likely to be a big opening but I don’t think any of Superman’s biggest fans thought that it would be this good. The new Superman reboot “Man of Steel” scored the biggest opening weekend box office gross for the month of June of all-time with a US take of $125.1 million. Adding in the international totals, Man of Steel picked up $196.7 million.
The previous domestic record for a June opening weekend was $110.3 million for Toy Story 3 in June 2010. Man of Steel also far outpaced 2006’s Superman Returns which opened to $52.5 million in the US.
