|The highly anticipated film, Superman Returns, opens on Wednesday, June 28, and expectations are running high that large crowds will go to see the film across the U.S. during its opening weekend. |
Sportsbook.com is now offering odds on the film's opening weekend U.S. gross. With Brandon Routh installed as the Man of Steel and Hollywood heavyweights Kevin Spacey as Lex Luther, and Kate Bosworth as Lois Lane joining the cast then success is surely a formality.
The producers have great expectations for Superman's return to the box office thanks to favourable reviews and a whopping production budget of more than $200 million.
American audiences also love their superhero movies with the last instalment of the franchise recording an opening weekend gross of $102.75 million.
Alex Czajkowski, Marketing Director, Sportsbook.com, said, 'Superman Returns and Americans are anxious to see how the new Man of Steel measures up to Superman icon Christopher Reeve. Superman Returns could be the summer's first truly big hit and bettors want to weigh in.'
