Box Office Update: Can you smell the failure yet?

The "Man of Steel" continues to plummet like he's made of lead.

It only took until its 8th weekend at the domestic box office for Singerman to fall below the million dollar mark. Though it wasn't as bad as it could've been, taking in just $848,255 in weekend #8 is embarrasing none the less, considering the scope of this picture for the once proud icon. Singerman came in 20th place for the weekend about $460K less than box office contemporary The Devil Wears Prada, and now sits at a not-so-impressive $194,165,746 domestic total.

How does that compare to Batman Begins you ask? Well, in Begins 8th weekend at the domestic box office it raked in a cool $1,822,445 or 54.5% more. At the end of its 8th weekend the cumulative domestic box office for Begins was $199,088,386 or 2.5% higher. The gap once again widened between the two films, and Singerman still remains on track to peter out somewhere around the $196-$197 million mark domestically.
