July 4, 2006: “Superman Returns” Hits $100 Million Mark in America

According to Box Office Mojo, "Superman Returns" is estimated to have made $106 million in the U.S. in its first week.

    Swooping onto about 8,200 screens at 4,065 locations, Warner Bros.' Superman Returns rocketed to an estimated $84.5 million in its first five days, selling about as many tickets initially as the first X-Men, which was also directed by Bryan Singer. Included in the tally was $5 million from 76 IMAX theaters, the highest-grossing IMAX opening on record, eclipsing Batman Begins' $3.1 million. By its seventh day, July 4, Superman's total levitated to an estimated $106 million.

"We're looking at $110 million for the first seven days," said Dan Fellman, Warner Bros.' president of distribution, on Sunday. "If you can join that $100 million club in the first seven days, you have to be proud. Considering Batman Begins, which was a great success for us last year, and what it did in its first week, you can't be more pleased." The studio's exit polling indicated that 57 percent of moviegoers were male and 63 percent were over 25 years old.
