“Superman Returns” has surpassed $200,000,000 in domestic box office since its release this past May.
The movie made $173,300 over the weekend frame, passing the mark on Sunday.
Its current domestic box office total stands at $200,006,305 and its current foreign total stands at $190,000,000 for a total worldwide take so far of $390,006,305.
“Superman Returns” is the highest grossing ‘Superman’ movie in both domestic and worldwide takes.
It is the 5th highest domestic grossing movie of the year and is Warner Bros. 10th highest grossing domestic movie of all time, directly behind “Batman Begins'” $205,343,774 of last year. Compared to “Batman Begins”, however, “Superman Returns” has a nearly $20 million advantage in worldwide box office thanks to a higher overseas gross.
A sequel to ‘Returns’ is in the planning stages and is rumored to have a release set for a May 2009 debut.
