Superman Up to $48 mil. in 3 days

After grossing roughly $32 million in its first two days, Bryan Singer’s Superman Returns grossed an estimated $16.2 million in its first Friday, up slightly from Thursday but down from its opening day, including Tuesday previews. Although many thought that the second superhero revival from Warner Bros. would do significantly better than last year’s Batman Begins, its Friday number is pointing to an opening weekend around $50 milion. This would be in a similar range as Peter Jackson’s remake of King Kong last year, another movie which cost more than $200 million and didn’t deliver opening weekend.
