MAN OF STEEL Tops Super Weekend
MAN OF STEEL had the second biggest opening of 2013 behind IRON MAN 3. It was heavily promoted to pastors and church goers for its savior-like message. THIS IS THE END came in a distant, but still decent second. NOW YOU SEE ME and FAST AND FURIOUS SIX came in third and fourth as they drift downward. Last weekend’s top movie THE PURGE dropped all the way to fifth and will probably disappear quickly.   20th Century Fox/Blue Sky’s EPIC came in seventh and ifs flailing away trying to make it to the $100 million mark domestic. It has only $117 million foreign so far. Last year’s Fox/Blue ICE AGE: CONTINENTAL DRIFT did $161 million domestic and $715 million international.
Obviously, animation doesn’t sell simply because it’s animation. The stories and characters must draw audiences.

Language Compared to Studio Box Office 2013
    No L – No obscenities and profanities
    L – Few obscenities and profanities (1-9)
    LL – Several obscenities and profanities (10-25)
    LLL – Numerous obscenities and profanities (more than 25)
Disney, far and away wins the box office average without any LLL movies while Warner Bros and Sony bring up the rear with ample foul language.

    No V – No violence

    VV – Moderate violence (may include some blood)
    VVV – Very strong, extreme or graphic violence
The major studios appear to be on a violence binge. In an era when many are calling for gun control, Hollywood appears to be out of control in its love for guns and explosions.
