Box Office Report: June 30-July 2

As expected, the Man of Steel reigned supreme at the box office over the weekend, but still has a ways to go to make a mark on the heavyweights that have already put up huge totals this summer (“The Da Vinci Code,” “X-Men: The Last Stand”). In fact, initial results would seem to indicate that “Superman Returns” will fall well short of those two movies unless it shows strong legs in coming weeks, as tough competition – namely, “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest” – is still to come.

Those comparing recent superhero movies, “Superman” came out of the gates faster than last summer’s “Batman Begins” but far slower than “Spider-Man 2.”

On another note, 20th Century Fox has got to be thrilled with the performance of “The Devil Wears Prada,” starring Meryl Streep and Anne Hathaway. The counter-programming to “Superman” paid off, as the comedy practically recouped its budget in the first weekend.
