Man of Steel breaks Philippines' box office record

"The new, origin film of Superman flew off to a blockbuster start yesterday as Man of Steel surpassed the industry's all-time opening day record with a nationwide gross of a monumental P69.52-M.


“Man of Steel's phenomenal debut bested the opening day record previously established only last April by Iron Man 3 at P62.9-million.

"This was announced today by Francis Soliven, general manager of Warner Bros. (F.E.), Inc. which distributed the film. “This is a day of reckoning for Superman,” added Soliven. “He's a larger-than-life character beloved by millions of Filipinos, and this was proven today. Fans and families welcomed him back overwhelmingly as evidenced by the long lines, the ubiquitous Superman shirts everywhere, and the cheers at the end of screenings.”

"Dominating the over all box-office with a 94 percent share, Man of Steel also posted the biggest opening day gross ever for Warner Bros. whose previous best first-day performer was Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2 at P28.3-million.

"From Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures comes the epic action-adventure Man of Steel, under the direction of Zack Snyder (300, Watchmen).

"In the film, a young boy learns that he has extraordinary powers and is not of this Earth. As a young man, he journeys to discover where he came from and what he was sent here to do. But the hero in him must emerge if he is to save the world from annihilation and become the symbol of hope for all mankind.

"The film stars Henry Cavill in the role of Clark Kent/Kal-El, four-time Oscar® nominee Amy Adams, Oscar® nominee Michael Shannon, Academy Award® winner Kevin Costner, Oscar® nominee Diane Lane, Oscar® nominee Laurence Fishburne, Antje Traue, Ayelet Zurer, Christopher Meloni, and Academy Award® winner Russell Crowe.

"Now playing in IMAX 3D, Digital 3D and regular theaters in the Philippines, Man of Steel is distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company."
