Superman Returns made more money than Batman Begins.
I didn't know that.
Did you know that?
Budget: $150 million
+ Foreign: $167,366,241
= Worldwide: $372,710,015
Production Budget: $270 million
+ Foreign: $191,000,000
Domestically, Batman Begins only made 5 million more than Superman Returns.
Superman Returns also has a 76% Certified Fresh rating from critics on Rotten Tomatoes.
I find it shocking that Batman Begins ended up getting a sequel and Superman didn't.
The critics like Superman Returns.
The movie was not a box office failure.
Seems like the general formula for a sequel.
What the hell happened?
