A Hero’s Job is Never Done

Will Rogers believed, “Being a hero is about the shortest-lived profession on earth.” Tell that to the “Man of Steel,” whose Superman alter-ego celebrates not only a 75-year history of heroics, but also holds the honor of being #1 at the domestic box office this weekend with a record-breaking $113 million (making it the all-time top-opening film in June). Also pretty popular among the movie merrymakers were a group of Hollywood revel rousers declaring “This is the End” of parties for one, taking the festivities all the way to #2 with $20.5 million. “Now You See Me” at the #3 spot, disappearing before your eyes with $10.3 million. The “Fast & Furious 6” guys have slowed down in the race, arriving at #4 with $9.4 million. “The Purge” continues to terrorize and tantalize moviegoers, this time from the #5 locale with $8.2 million.
The bad, the brave and the just plain hard to explain were found trading the most imaginative tales this weekend as party planners were purged of their Hollywood sins just in time to officially welcome summer at the movies.
From seaside days to starry nights, may our imaginary heroes have THE longest life at the nearest multiplex…
