‘Batman v Superman’ Passes $300 Million At Domestic Box Office

bvvs

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice reached new milestones at the box office yesterday. In 21 days of release, the superhero team-up has made $300 million domestically. In comparison, Iron Man 3 was able to rack up $345 million by its 21st day of release. The Marvel film continued to gross another $64 million after that.

This unfortunately means that Warner Brothers’ kickoff to the DCEU may not even reach the $350 million I predicted this past weekend. The film continues to rapidly lose steam without any true competition to hurt its number. This weekend sees the release of Disney’s Jungle Book, the film’s first true competitor, which is tracking to open around $78 million. Batman v Superman meanwhile is expected to make around $10 million this weekend. It is yet to be seen whether Batman v Superman can even top Guardians of the Galaxy‘s $333 million.

At the global box office, the film also reached an important mark. As of yesterday, the film has made $800 million worldwide. This is the number reports suggested the film needed to make in order to be profitable. One cannot deny that this film is a success but it is almost impossible now that it will hit the $1 billion dollars Warner Brothers wished it would have. It is certainly surprising that a movie starring the two greatest icons of American culture is unlikely to hit that target.

What do you think of the Batman v Superman box office results? Are they good enough or should fans be disappointed? Sound off in the comments below!

    It’s certainly enough to encourage Warner to keep trying. The media film critics who detest superhero movies will have no choice but to continue seeing them. These critics may very well be driven out of their minds! They may have no choice but to (hopefully) give up reviewing movies forever!

    I have seen anaysis and the most optimist about it, state the minimum to break even at 850M (some go as far as 950M). And while 850M is not off the table, 900M is, there is no way to reach beyond that (so 1B is way more than “almost impossible”). The movie faded quickly, and any chance of big income is gone now, already opened in every big market, there is competition now (Jungle Book), is running on fumes now.

    • SAMURAI36

      Right, because somehow $800M is not “big income”. Where do they find these idiots from…..

  • Marquis de Sade

    It was just announced that it FINALLY cracked the $800 million mark globally after a month in release. LOL!

    • Technofied

      You’re such a low life. Ever reconsidered your priorities in life? Posting hate comments makes you feel like you’re a man, doesn’t it? If only you were getting paid for this sh…, I would have understood…..

      • SAMURAI36

        He’s a waste of your time, dude.

        So some genius taught a fecal deposit how to type. Don’t let it bother you. Just ignore it.

        • Technofied

          It doesn’t bother me. I was just surprised to seehim on every possible DC thread posting hate comments and i was wondering about his commitments in life.

          • JMMagwood

            It’s pretty creepy to waste your life on the internet posting so many messages to people you don’t know about something harmless such as a movie, which you claim to dislike. It’s sad, it’s pathetic, and it’s definitely idiotic.

          • Technofied

            So true!

  • Matches Malone

    Reality is that the movie is BOTH profitable and a disappointment for WB. Sorry fanboys – no nuclear winter or ticker-tape parade. Simply middling, kinda like the film

  • batghost

    **fart noise**

  • Julio Lopez

    Who cares about this?
    Remember The Incredible Hulk? Marvel’s second movie. It made around 260 in the end. So for this being WB/DC’s second movie in their CU it’s not a bad start. Even if it wasn’t the movie I hoped for, I still have faith that they will deliver with the next movies. They have to.

    Wow, this is one of the most biased, anti-DC articles, I’ve seen in… Well, a week.

    So, to the author:

    Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice reached new milestones at the box office yesterday. In 21 days of release, the superhero team-up has made $300 million domestically. In comparison, Iron Man 3 was able to rack up $345 million by its 21st day of release. The Marvel film continued to gross another $64 million after that.

    Wow, what a retarded, BS comparison. putting BVS (DC’s 2nd film) against Marvel’s 7th. So here’s a better one:

    BVS not only blew Marvel’s 2nd film (IH) completely out of the water, but it also made more money at the box office than 90% of all the MCU films. Not only that, but it also mast more than 90% of ALL Marvel films, including the non-Disney films as well.

    This unfortunately means that Warner Brothers’ kickoff to the DCEU may not even reach the $350 million I predicted this past weekend. The film continues to rapidly lose steam without any true competition to hurt its number. This weekend sees the release of Disney’s Jungle Book, the film’s first true competitor, which is tracking to open around $78 million. Batman v Superman meanwhile is expected to make around $10 million this weekend. It is yet to be seen whether Batman v Superman can even top Guardians of the Galaxy‘s $333 million.

    Why is the domestic BO so much more significant than the WWBO? That’s such a weird goal post to strive for. But either way, it’s already blown GOTG out of the water worldwide, and is only $30M away from the domestic. BVS will make that easy.

    At the global box office, the film also reached an important mark. As of yesterday, the film has made $800 million worldwide. This is the number reports suggested the film needed to make in order to be profitable. One cannot deny that this film is a success but it is almost impossible now that it will hit the $1 billion dollars Warner Brothers wished it would have. It is certainly surprising that a movie starring the two greatest icons of American culture is unlikely to hit that target.

    Where is the proof that WB “wished it could have” made $1B? Everybody keeps saying that, like they are present in WB’s board meetings. Stop spreading rumors.

    • Marquis de Sade

      You don’t spend $410 million in production and marketing and not have reasonable expectations for your product to gross at least $1.2 billion…especially when you have your 3 heavy-hitters in the same movie. Sorry, but ain’t no spin doctor in the world can shine this obscenely budgeted turd into a diamond.

      …Now as to why everyone is beating up on dceu is because their blunders are inexcusable, considering that MARVEL did all the heavy lifting (in the form of trial and error) during their phase 1 projects. They showed all of their competitors how it’s done, and how it’s NOT done. MOS and BVS are proof positive that WB/DCEU are poor students, and deserve all the derisive rancor thrown their way. They’re the laughingstocks of the industry at this point.
