“Man of Steel” Sets New June Opening Record

Warner Bros. Pictures(NEW YORK) -- The new Superman movie Man of Steel set a June opening record this weekend, collecting more than $113 million for first place at the box office.

Man of Steel broke the old record for a June opening weekend, previously held by Toy Story 3, by a little less than $3 million. The record does not include an additional $12 million the film made in a corporate group sale screening program on Thursday.

The R-rated apocalypse comedy This is the End opened on Wednesday and earned $20.5 million over the weekend. This brings its five day total to $32.8 million, enough to cover the entire production budget.

Now You See Me dropped just 46 percent in its third weekend, good enough for third place, while Fast & Furious 6 managed to keep in the top five with a fourth place finish.

Here are the top five movies for the Friday through Sunday, according to Hollywood.com:

1.     Man of Steel     $113.08M     

2.     This is the End     $20.5M      

3.     Now You See Me     $10.32M      

4.     Fast & Furious 6     $9.4M      

5.     The Purge     $8.2M
