BOX OFFICE 6/14-6/16: Man of Steel Takes Off

The new Superman movie got mixed reviews from the critics (56% Rotten Tomatoes, 55 Metacritic), but did some serious damage at the box office this weekend, for a total of $125.1 million since opening Thursday night. Earning an "A-" Cinemascore from crowds and playing 56% male, 44% female (a closer gender mix than usual for the genre) it's expected to cross $300 million easily by the end of its run. The other new release this weekend, This is the End, opened with $32.8 million total since Wednesday and a "B+" Cinemascore, which is fairly healthy for an R-rated comedy and is expected to stay strong and finish with $100 million or below, depending on the competition in the next few weeks.
