What if 'Superman' Wore 'Prada'?

So how did hunky BRANDON ROUTH fare at the box office against his fellow men in tights? "Superman Returns" scored a respectable $52 million from Friday to Sunday for a total opening haul of $82 million since it opened on Wednesday. That's better than "Batman Begins," which cleaned up $48.7 million over its opening weekend and $72.9 million in its first five days, but not as good as TOBEY's "Spider-Man 2," the record-holder for best five-day openings, which nabbed $152.4 million over the Fourth of July weekend in 2004. In second place this weekend was the fashion comedy, "The Devil Wears Prada," with $27 million, which experts say was "better than expected." I can vouch for the popularity of "Prada." I tried to see it Saturday night in Century City, CA, and all the 7:10, 7:30 and 8 p.m. screenings were sold out -- so we had to see "The Break Up" instead. So the guys went to see Superman and the chicks lined up for "Prada." Uh oh, brainstorm! What if "Superman Wore Prada"? Note to BRYAN SINGER: Imagine the gross!
