Superman Reboot Man Of Steel Tops UK Box Office
Iconic superhero dominates cinemas on first weekend of release...
Superman movie reboot Man Of Steel has topped the UK Box Office on its first weekend of release - taking almost 10 times as much as the second-placed film.
Zack Snyder's take on the DC Comics superhero had the second-biggest opening of 2013 so far (after Iron Man 3) - and the biggest opening day takings of the year.
It has notched up very healthy box office receipts of £11.2m, with Will Smith's After Earth trailing way behind in second place on just £1.2m.
And The Hangover Part III was in third spot with £861k.
