Re: Man of Steel vs Thor TDW, seen 'em both, what do you folks think ? Compare/contra
I think, given T:TDW box office the last couple of weeks we get a clearer picture of just how much the crowded summer impacted MoS box office. MoS has performed better in each of its weekends than T:TDW has. While it would not be fair to compare weekday grosses (because of Summer), it is fair to look at and compare the weekend box office. MoS out paced Thor while facing far more competition pretty much every single week of it's release.
I wonder how much more successful MU and WWZ would have been if they didn't have to face MoS?
MoS will definitely end with higher domestic box office than Thor, but because of its international success Thor will come in with a higher overall box.
It will be fun to see what happens at the box office in two years when the first DCCU sequel comes out. The foreign market loves a sequel and MoS will have been seen by everyone who avoided it in theatres either due to the crowded release dates, in reaction to the reviews or even their lingering memories of SR.
What at awesome time to be a cbm fan.
