July 3, 2006: “Superman Returns” No. 1 Around the World

According to the Hollywood Reporter, "Superman Returns" has taken out the No. 1 spot at the box office, not only in America, but all over the world...

    Although skipping soccer-mad Europe in favor of Asian markets, Warner Bros. International's "Superman Returns" still flew to the No. 1 spot internationally this weekend, posting an estimated boxoffice gross of $19.8 million from 1,750 screens in just 11 territories.

    The latest incarnation of the Warner Bros. Pictures movie franchise, directed by Bryan Singer and starring newcomer Brandon Routh as the man of steel, bowed No. 1 in every market it played -- Korea, Australia, Philippines, Taiwan, Thailand, India, Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, New Zealand, and in its lone non-Asian date, Puerto Rico. European openings begin July 12.

    According to WBI, "Superman Returns" yielded a muscular $5 million (including previews) from 274 screens in Korea. In Australia, it pulled $3.9 million from 409 screens. The film took 90% of the weekend market in the Philippines to land $2.6 million from 81 situations.

    Combined with its No. 1 domestic weekend tally of $84.2 million, "Superman Returns" has flown past the $100-million mark worldwide.
