Superman Returns Box Office

So, the estaimtes are in:

Domestic: $84,208,000 81.0%
+ Foreign: $19,800,000 19.0%
= Worldwide: $104,008,000

Solid, but not spectacular. The budget--which includes $40 million in development costs related to the many false starts that plagued the WB's attempt to revive the Superman brand, but excludes cost of the prints and marketing--is about $260 million, which meansit needs to make about $650-700 million. Looks like it will take DVD sales to get them across the finish line (but that's not so unusual these days).

Still: it's good enough for a sequel.
