30 Days and 30 Blogs
For some random reason, I was looking up the box office totals for Monsters University tonight. I noticed it is sitting right behind Man of Steel in terms of highest grossers this year (domestic). Man of Steel made $291,033,976 and Monsters University made $265,455,314.
So then I decided to see how much Superman Returns made vs. Man of Steel. Turns out Superman Returns only made $200,081,192. But then, that was way back in 2006. Adjusted for inflation, Superman Returns made $249,261,500.
So they replaced all the actors and the director, tore the mythology down and rebuilt it and got rid of one of the most iconic and beautiful music scores in motion picture history…and they only made 34 million more at the box office? Not to mention Man of Steel had to use IMAX and 3D surcharges to get to that figure where as Superman Returns did it with good old fashioned 2D screens.
Hmm seems totally worth it, right?
