‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’ & ‘Deadpool’ Finish Box Office Runs

Earlier this week, we found out that Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War has crossed the $400 million mark at the North America box office after only six weeks and now it looks like the other two superhero movies that have so far been released this year, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Deadpool, have finally finished their domestic runs.

According to Box Office Mojo, Zack Snyder’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice has racked up $330,360,194 million domestically after twelve weeks in release, but more than half of that comes from its impressive opening weekend ($166,007,347 million). The movie has also grossed an additional $542,302,437 million overseas for a global total of $872,662,631 million. That’s probably not as much as Warner Bros. would have hoped for this movie, but it’s definitely not a bad number.

Meanwhile, Tim Miller’s Deadpool has also concluded its domestic run at $363,070,709 million, which is quite impressive considering that the movie only had a reported production budget of $58 million. The R-Rated superhero movie also earned $412,634,673 million in various foreign markets over the course of 18 weeks for a worldwide total of $775,705,382 million. I think it’s safe to say that we’ll be seeing a lot more of the Merc with the Mouth in the near future.

    Because I am biased, Deadpool = best movie ever. Also think about how much money it would have made being released in China.

      At least you own up to your bias.

    No contest, Deadpool! – And with a total take of $775 million on a $58 million budget translate into a resounding and lucrative HANDSOME RANSOM!

    Deadpool was fun. But in 10 years, I bet I’ll have gotten more rewatches out of BvS directors cut than I will Deadpool. Deadpool relied on so many current pop culture references to get its broad appeal, I can see that movie becoming extremely dated quickly; much like modern satire/spoof movies. I saw it twice in theaters, and I have very little interest in seeing it again.

    DP was fun once, a little tedious for me the second time. “BvS” is a great movie, that I plan to revisit on BR many times. For me, it’s already been a great movie year, based on “BvS” and “CA:CW” alone, and we still have yet to see “Suicide Squad” and “Doctor Strange.” Nice.

      I cannot see any comic book movie being better (for me) than BvS this year. Although I’m a huge Dr. Strange fan so we’ll see how that turns out. I hope they don’t do the usual too many jokes-lame villian thing. Civil War is great but played it too safe. I’m only excited for Suicide Squad because of Joker.

      • JMMagwood

        No question, “Batman v Superman” is most likely the best movie that will come out this year, but I really loved “Civil War.”

        “Suicide Squad” might be great though. I have high expectations for that one.
