Green Lantern lights up the US box office
Green Lantern took its bow at the US box office this weekend, powering its way to the top of the pile and landing $52.6m.
Though nothing to be scoffed at, that’s still $4m short of X-Men: First Class’ opening a few weeks ago – the latter’s debut was considered stable if not overwhelmingly successful.
Lantern did beat Warner Bros’ last attempt to launch a comic-book franchise, however. Six years ago, Batman Begins only opened with $48.7m.
