Weekend B.O. May 4-6 (How Did "Man" Do Against "Avengers"?)


All things considered, not bad at all. The film came in this weekend second after The Avengers. Albeit a very, very distant second, of course, with $8 million, but that's a very solid figure and the fact there were a lot of people who didn't go see the Marvel comic book film and chose Man instead speaks for itself.

With a total gross right now of just over $73 million, the film is definitely on it's way to an excellent $90 million domestic gross and possibly could hit $100 million depending on how it holds up the rest of the month against Avengers, Dark Shadows and MIB III when they come out. (Notice I didn't mention Battleship…)
