Anyone see any good movies last week? Yeah? How about TV Shows? Um, maybe not?
While being a stellar week for comics — Daredevil totally rocked, Brave New World cost a buck, Solo was awesome, Lucifer, X-Factor, Runaways, Action, Batman, Nextwave, Blue Beetle — the big news this week was what was up on the screen. Superman Returns brought in $52.15 million over opening weekend, lifting its five-day total since its debut Wednesday to $84.2 million, according to studio estimates. And we had much Superman love to pass around all week:
- Superman Returns opens with $21 million
- Yes, Virginia, there is a Superman
- Superman: Man of Steel, or fascist tool?
- Kryptonite Bites: So, there’s this movie …
- Joe Shuster, and Superman’s Canadian roots
- Kryptonite Bites: Tick, tick, tick
- Growing up in the Superman Family
- Kryptonite Bites: Too … many … stories
And if your taste in movies runs more Marvel, never fear … the trailer for Spider-Man 3 came out this week as well. And if you didn’t feel like fighting the movie theater crowds, there was always the new Blade TV show on Spike.
