July 15, 2006: Superman Outdoing Batman

While Superman returned and Batman began, it's the Man of Steel who is tracking better at the box office.

Comparing the early returns between the two films, it's Superman who is doing better business. After an eight-year theatrical sabbatical, "Batman Begins" also was released on a Wednesday and had a first-weekend gross of $48.7 million, grossed $72.8 million in its first five days and recorded $82 million in its first seven days - about $24 million less than Superman. Batman ended with a domestic gross of $205.3 million.

"Superman Returns" currently sits at $155.4 million in U.S. box office takings.
