‘Man of Steel’ Has Largest June Opening Ever

Move over, Avengers: there's a new top superhero in town. Actually, he's the oldest superhero there is. Despite lackluster reviews, the new Superman vehicle Man of Steel raked it in at the box office on opening weekend, taking in $113.1 million in North America alone, adding to a total $196.7 million worldwide. More significantly for movie-fan purposes, it beat out Toy Story 3 for the biggest June opening of all time and took 60 percent of the weekend market. It's okay, Buzz. You'll always be the best superhero in our hearts. This Is the End came in second, with $38.2 million, while Sofia Coppola’s The Bling Ring took in $210,000 in just five theatres in New York and Los Angeles—making it Coppola’s best opening since Lost in Translation.

Watch Superman through the ages.
