    Wow what a sucky headline. Who was expecting WWZ to beat a kid flick like MU. Sad that this site had to go there.

    Congrats to Brad for kicking major ass and giving a FU to the haters and naysayers.

    Jared is just throwing the hens a bone :)
    Regardless of what Jared is trying to stir, Brad still came out GREAT AND SHOULD BE VERY PROUD. So many great comments are coming from around the world. Yes you are right Dd, MU did have more theaters and it’s a kids movie, even I plan to see it because the first was so good. Still Brad’s movie ROCKED.

    No shame in losing to a Pixar movie. Will be buying that dvd when it comes out. Do plan on seeing WWZ. Am glad it did so well. Brad really worked hard to promote it and think the movie backers should be pleased. It has almost earned back it’s budget based on world wide and that is just it’s opening.

    JJoy do compare it to SuperMan you dumb idiot , Super Man opened last weekend to 125 million.. WWZ opened 66 million… SuperMan has already gross in 11 days 398 million, almost 400 million worldwide in just 11 days… WWz can only dream of reaching number like that… Some people are too stupid to post, and why are people proud of a stranger they don’t even know, get a life losers.

    Congrats to Brad! WWZ was incredible! Will see it a few more times. The best fun I’ve had in a theater in a long, long time.

    regel Says:

    @jen the hag: Ava did not say he/she was proud of Henry Cavill. Ava stated TRUE facts that MOS had done way better then WWZ money wise and even reviews too. Are you really that stupid or were you born like that?
    You and your little spinsters pals are the ones saying “Brad is great, Brad rocks, Brad did so great” as if you all personally know him or something. Sure you will be invited to his future wedding, oh wait, they will most likely only invite their freinds and family. Not their lame ass middle-aged spinsters fans. No young folks even like the Pitt-Jolies . Moron, you are obessed with a total stranger who you do not know. Get a f–king life and marry a man and have kids. Grow a brain while your at it too.
