Last week’s box office champ, which set a June record -- Man of Steel -- had to settle for third in a week with two strong new releases. Man of Steel added another $41.2 million to its haul, bringing its domestic total to over $210 million in only two weeks of release. Since Warner Bros. brass said there would be no Justice League movie without a successful Superman movie… think $210 million in two weeks gets us that? We think so!

The end of days comedy This Is the End fell to fourth with $13 million, and closing out the top five was the magicians as bank robbers thriller, Now You See Me, that made $7.9 million.
