‘Batman v Superman’ Ticket Sales Are Trending Exceptionally Well

image

UPDATE 2: As of 8:44 am EST Batman v Superman tickets are trending at 58.8% on movietickets.com

UPDATE: Tickets are now accounting for 51% of ticket sales

Tickets for the battle that the entire world has been waiting to see are now available. Batman v Superman tickets went on sale this morning and although they didn’t break the internet like The Force Awakens did (although some servers did crash including mine) they are trending pretty well on Movietickets.com. Tickets began selling at 10am and is accounting for 39% of all tickets sales at this time.

So, let’s take that into perspective, Avengers: Age of Ultron in a 24 hour time frame accounted for 21% of ticket sales, Jurassic World had a colossal 50% in 24 hours, and Star Wars: The Force Awakens accounted an astounding 75% in a 24 hour time frame. If we do the math Avengers: Age of Ultron opened to $191,271,109, Jurassic World stomped on the box office with $208,806,270 and Star Wars: The Force Awakens sent them all packing with $247,966,675. So, if that trend were to continue with 39% Batman v Superman could score an opening weekend anywhere from $191,271,109 to $208,806,270. 24 hours hasn’t passed as yet for Batman v Superman so it still has a chance to get its percentage up. Will it actually break a $200 million opening weekend? We’ll find out in a little over 3 weeks.

What do you guys think about this information? Do you think Batman v Superman has a shot at a $200 million opening weekend? Sound off in the comments section!

 

Fearing the actions of a god-like super hero left unchecked, Gotham City’s own formidable, forceful vigilante takes on Metropolis’s most revered, modern-day savior, while the world wrestles with what sort of hero it really needs.  And with Batman and Superman at war with one another, a new threat quickly arises, putting mankind in greater danger than it’s ever known before.

Starring Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, Amy Adams, Jeremy Irons and Jesse Eisenberg. Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice is directed by Zack Snyder and will hit theaters March, 25th 2016.

    I will be shocked if the movie breaks $200M. It’d be nice, particularly if it’s also very well reviewed, but the list of movies to have a $200M opening is like two movies long, and until it becomes the new normal for blockbuster weekends, the safe money is on the under.

    • LOGOS

      Only 3 have opened to over 200 mil. The Force Awakens, Jurassic World and The Avengers.

      • SAMURAI36

        According to the article, AOU did not open to $200M.

        • LOGOS

          The 1st Avengers movie opened to $207M.

          • SAMURAI36

            Ah, I see.

  • Renan Moreira

    UPDATE:Batman v Superman already sold 51,1% within 9 hours

  • Matheusmnr

    Update

    • SAMURAI36

      It’s 54% now… Update again!!

      • UltimateSMfan

        Where do you check this?

        • SAMURAI36
          • woodbullet

            I just saw 25%. Are they photoshoping this pictures??

          • henchmen

            movietickets.com shows what a movie did within the last 24 hours. You saw it as it was selling in it’s second day of tickets. The first 24 hours maxed out at 59% though

          • emily_10

            can you see how much its sold as of today?

      • Vegas82

        Looks like it maxed at 59%. If this is actually a decent indicator then opening weekend should break $200 million.

  • LupeX

    I’m calling $200m for opening weekend. Why not? There are only less than a hand full of story IP properties worth more than Batman or Superman … this is Batman AND Superman, AND Wonder Woman.

  • Chris W

    I don’t know the numbers off hand, but as far as I know, due to run time, BvS has fewer showings than all of those other movies. That could stop it from sniffing Jurassic world. But I’m sure it’ll beat Ultron.

    • breakerbaker

      If there’s a demand for it, you add show times. Jurassic World came out in the middle of the summer. Theaters should have a bit more flexibility with an Easter release. I don’t think it will break $200M, but we will see.

      • Jack Bauer

        My theater just added a 1255 AM showing that wasn’t their when tickets first went on sale. If the trend continues it will get alot more screens. But Warners doesnt have enough power to demand a certain number of screens like Disney did for Star Wars so if Batman v Superman gets anywhere near 200 million it will be such an overwhelming victory and the DCEU will be set for the next 10 years with no possibility of going away.

  • Sure it can probably get the $200m weekend as long as it plays on 4000 screens, with the length of the movie it hinders presenters as to how many shows per screen, per day they can show. That said it should still make the money… the BIGGER and more important questions are: Will it be worth it? Will it live up to the hype? Will it satisfy the fans who were SO split on Man of Steel? Will it actually DESERVE the money it makes?

    • Adrian

      Who gets to decide what movie ‘deserves’ the money?

  • SAMURAI36

    I see this as extremely good news. All the early negative reports are proving to be wrong.. We’ve got a few more hours to go, and it’s already surpassed JP and AOU’s numbers.

    Based on what I’ve been reading around the ‘net, many theaters have already been sold out. $200M seems like easy money at this point.

  • LOGOS

    I hope BvS opens to over 200M and Civil War does as well. That way we keep getting more and more CBM’s. It’s a great time to be alive.

    • CD

      Bingo…been saying this for months. I want every comic book movie to knock it out of the park…that way we get more and all of us are happy…well maybe not all of us, there will always be trolls and holier than thou fans.

      • LOGOS

        Exactly. For those of us with an open mind, it’s a win win situation.

    • emily_10

      i wish more ppl had a more open mind like you do, success to all movies. Both universes make great movies, enjoy both and be happy! Im excited for those two movies >_<

      • LOGOS

        Me too. And there’s still X-Men, Suicide Squad and Doctor Strange this year. It’s gonna be a good year!

    • Splinter76

      Can you and I be best friends?

      • LOGOS

        Haha! Super friends?

        • Splinter76

          Yes! To the Hall of Justice! It’s soooo great to see a like-minded, level-headed fan. I’ll never understand the hate this or any other CBM gets from the “camps”.

          • LOGOS

            I don’t either. The way I see it is, these studios are making movies like they’re picked straight from the comic pages. This is what we comic nerds have been waiting for our whole lives. We can either pick the movies apart and be miserable complainers, or we can enjoy this great ride we’re all on.

    • Philip Eventide

      Here here.

  • Zauri Severino Junior

    Not to burst the excitement from this what’s potentially a great start for Batman v Superman, pre-sales sales look really good but I don’t think it’s possible to compare with the other films people are throwing here, like JW, TA, AOU and SW; different dates and it’s impossible to have a clue how many tickets where sold from either SW, AOU and BVS: 51%+ of tickets sold, great, but how many tickets were sold? Hard to gauge that. We’ll get tracking numbers soon enough, and Umberto said that he’d have more definite numbers this Thursday, I think people should keep buying their tickets and wait for Umberto’s box office report this Thursday, then we’ll have a clearer idea of where BvS is heading box office wise.

    • breakerbaker

      To be fair, even though AoU came out a month or two later in the year, it’s a logical (whether or not it’s accurate is another question) comparison to draw given the relative amount of competition for a spring release. I’d agree that the other two are a bit less so. Remember that Jurassic World opened on the same day as Inside Out, and it still broke records. I still don’t understand how that movie did so well. And of course Star Wars had so much positive hype and general desperation from so many people for it to be good…

      • SAMURAI36

        So, is his point that BVS doesn’t have the same level of competition that these other films had?

        • breakerbaker

          More or less. Generally, the argument would be that it’s better to drive 35 percent of traffic on a summer day than 45 or 50 percent of traffic on a Monday in late winter. I don’t think the point is that these numbers are necessarily less impressive, but until there is a quantifiable number of tickets sold (as a opposed to a percentage of total traffic/ticket sales), it is a call to measure expectations accordingly.

          • SAMURAI36

            Yeah, that general rule seems silly to me. Especially since neither scenario (summer day, or late winter) applies to BVS, which comes out in mid spring. And, even if it did, I don’t think that means anything to WB’s bottom line either way. $200M (assuming/hoping/predicting it does that much) is $200M, no matter what time of year.

            Either way though, I still think comments like his reek of bias. I don’t think anyone was making such an absurd comment, when the Fandango site was crashing when people were buying SW tickets.

            And, I wish someone would have mentioned the same general rule in 2013, when MOS was surrounded by no less than a half dozen blockbusters on both sides of it, which affected its bottom line. Meanwhile, people love to brag that TWS did better than DC’s A-list character, even though it had, what…. One?

            Just sayin’, be nice to see folks shoot a fair one, or none at all.

          • breakerbaker

            When I said late winter, I was talking about yesterday. When I was talking about summer, I was talking about JW, though tickets may have gone on sale for that in mid to late spring. Either way, I ‘s difficult to comparison to draw without having something closer to actual numbers quantifying the amount of traffic.

            This has little to do with what the actual open or total gross will be, obviously, but I think MoS came out the same week (of the year) that the two previous Nolan Batman movies came out. It had historically been a very good weekend for WB/DC, which is part of why they had every anticipation it would make $1B. C’est la vie.

          • SAMURAI36

            From another site:

            The 100-140m was a prediction from competing studios. Real tracking will be released this Thursday apparently.

            movietickets is one way to look at it w/ it’s 59% for first 24 hours compared to the 75% of TFA and 51% of JW and 21% of AoU, but it’s certainly not definitive. A good sign though.

            movieinsider shows BvS at over 18,560 vs TFA 18,131 vs JW 16,097 vs AoU 16,490

            Fixster has BvS cracking 100k over a month before release. TFA hit 95k on week of release.

            The Chinese market, I believe BvS is the number one most anticipated movie of 2016 via Maoyan and Gewara. The Chinese are already predicting at least 100-150 million for the movie, though it does go up against a major Chinese movie releasing in April.

            For India, Bengaluru has 22k votes vs CW 8k and X-Men 6k.

            In South Korea, BvS is ranked 2nd in most anticipated of 2016 by Naver.

            In Austrailia, according to Imax 90% of the tickets were sold out in the first 20 minutes.

            Hard to tell what this all means, but I figure it’s more positive than the 100-140 low-ball of rival execs. That said, even the execs said they wouldn’t be surprised if the numbers raised significantly above their predictions.

            Your thoughts?

          • Whatsupdoc

            Mind sharing the link?

          • Lupin

            sources? thnX for the info. This movie will crush it and I can see the Chinese market bringing its gross to ridiculous heights, remember that TFA didnt do that well in China and that Deadpool was locked out of China.

          • Orion

            I believe BvS is going to be huge. The only thing I doubt will happen is that it will surpass Star Wars’ domestic gross. Probably that’s why its presales in the US didn’t track/trend higher than Star Wars but internationally that’s another story. But can you link me to this site?

        • Jack Bauer

          It has more presale competetion than Star Wars did because Jungle book tickets are also on sale. Plus Star Wars advertised their ticket sale date much bigger. I have a feeling Affleck’s appeareance on Kimmel helped alot. The scene they showed was great and the funny skit made the idea of Batman and Superman in a movie together seem cool to people finally.

      • Marquis de Sade

        AOU’s release date also had to contend with the MAYWEATHER/PACQUIAO fight also.

        • SAMURAI36

          LOL, people still going with that? A one night event, vs a movie that is measured by how well it does all weekend?

          • Marquis de Sade

            Well be as it may, if these presales hold up, your precious dc will finally gain admission into the VIP Room with the big boys. LOL!

          • SAMURAI36

            Try not to sound too congratulatory. :-

            And LOL at “finally gain….” As if they haven’t been there the entire time.

          • Marquis de Sade

            Sorry, but if you’re not in the top 10 of the BILLION DOLLAR CLUB, which dc ain’t, they’ll always be on the outside lookin’ in…And right now out of the 24 billion dollar grossers, dc only has two in the low ranks (24 & 16). MARVEL has 3, which are all ranked in the top 10 (VIP STATUS) – (10, 7 & 5).

          • BR

            Dude give it a rest. Outside of the first Avengers movie and CA:TWS, the Marvel movies are fairly generic and in some cases plain awful.

          • Marquis de Sade

            Their popularity and b.o. success says otherwise …so in closing, your opinion means what?

          • SAMURAI36

            About as much as yours does. And the box offices of most of those films don’t stand to bear either.

            Never mind that MOS, Deadpool, EVERY Spiderman film (including those that people claimed were so bad) and most of the X-Men films have done better than most of your precious Disney Marvel films.

            So how you like them apples? But I like how you keep moving the goal posts. First it was about the Mayweather fight, now it’s about who’s in the billion dollar club.

            You have no point here. Just give it a rest.

          • Not really, people are just invested at this point, so to see the story and how it’s going to end, they have to see each movie. I did and I hated AoU, it was boring and just all over the place. Aside from The Winter Soldier and Guardians of the Galaxy, I’m bored to death with Marvel’s cookie cutter family oriented fluff films. I personally am more excited for Batman v Superman if for nothing else it appeals my inner comic geek that is now an adult. Deadpool was the first comic book movie in some time that I thought was made for me and my age, not 10 years who are looking to buy the latest Iron Man action figure.

          • Marquis de Sade

            Oh spare me! No grown person stays invested in something they have total disdain for…especially something they consider fluff! You know, and I know you’re a fan, but this blind allegiance to dc prevents you from uttering that most sacred of verses/decree: “MAKE MINE MARVEL!”. LOL!

          • SAMURAI36

            Didn’t you get the memo? The more you feed this particular species, the more they hang around.

          • SAMURAI36

            Wait… So, TDK wasn’t a billion dollar movie? TDKR wasn’t a billion dollar movie?

            You’re just talking stupid now.

          • Marquis de Sade

            Calm down! Breathe! Calm down!
            Re-read my post. I clearly stated, of the 24 billion dollar grossers, dc has two in the low rankings (24 & 16).

          • SAMURAI36

            Dude, I’m not interested in the nonsense you’re trying to sell here. Troll on, brotha man, troll on.

          • Marquis de Sade

            Well now that I think about it, technically dcu doesn’t have any product in the 24 movies that has grossed $1 billion or more, seein’ as how Nolan’s TDK and TDKR aren’t considered canon.

        • Jack Bauer

          Dude seriosly people didnt start saying that till after the numbers came in. Everyone knew how big the fight would be but were still predicting higher numbers for Age of Ulton. And the fact that the other weekends didn’t even elevate the movie to 500 million when the first one made 623 million proves that is just a trope. The fight was not nearly good enough to make people forget that Age of Ulton was out for 2 more months.

    • SAMURAI36

      Uhmmm, what? No one was saying this sort of nonsense, when these other films were coming out. This just sounds like more of the usual anti-DC stuff that we’ve read on the internet in the past few weeks.

      • BR

        I don’t think ZSJ trying to be anti-DC. He’s just pointing out that a percentage by itself is an incomplete picture. The total tickets sold could be much lower or much much higher than it was for those other movies.

        Trust me, I see where you are coming from. The hate on message boards for this movie has been crazy and beyond bizarre. I think this movie is going to rock!

        • SAMURAI36

          Perhaps, but it just didn’t need to be said, especially if it also didn’t need to be said for these other films, when everyone was celebrating the percentages for them.

          • Math

            Relax. All he was saying is that 59% of tickets sold in March is not as much as 59% of tickets sold in the summer season or around the holidays. He was just saying to be careful not to jump to conclusions too quickly. It was never an anti-DC attack. You have to stop interpreting any comment that ain’t praising DC as anti-DC. Beside, a big opening weekend does not automatically mean it’s going to be a good movie either. It’s wiser not to jump to conclusions because of good ticket sale percentages. We all knew it was going to open big. A lot of bad movies opened big as well.

            Now I’m not saying this because I’m anti-DC. I have faith. I’m so excited. That one is the movie I’m most looking forward to this year. I loved MoS and I love Zack Snyder’s work. I can’t speak for everyone, but I’m pretty sure I’ll highly enjoy this movie. I really hope, like most of us here, that it’s not just going to be a great movie, but that it’ll have great financial success and reassure WB to keep making many more. I can’t believe we’ll finally get this in 3 weeks. I’m so excited.

        • Jack Bauer

          It is interesting that alot of sites seem to be waiting till the last possible minute to report numbers. Not the case with Star Wars. They were all too excited after 2 hours.

    • Lupin

      Weird that this wasn’t the rhetoric when it came to STARWARS. I dont know where the hardwired pessimism and negativity emanates from but people seem to be doing this even subconsciously.
      This should be a movie news headline that’s plastered all over the trades! 60% is a ridiculously high percentage, like record breaking – STARWARS is in another galaxy entirely.

  • Carl

    I’m waiting for reviews before buying any tickets. This could go south quick if it gets a MoS like reception.

    Also 51% of what?

    • SAMURAI36

      Of tickets sold.

      • Carl

        Sure but how many is that?

        • Whatsupdoc

          We should find out approximately how many tickets were sold by say… Thursday-ish.

    • BR

      MOS had an A- cinemascore and made more than many of the Phase 1 Marvel movies.

      • Carl

        Cinemascore is worthless and MoS got worse reviews than every single MCU movie.

        • BR

          Not true. Cinemascore is more predictive of audience reaction and most reviews. And critics that liked MOS loved it, and those that disliked it really hated it. It was polarizing. Marvel movies by and large are bland and generic, so most critics like them, but very few love them. They are not worthy of inspiring a passionate response.

          • Carl

            No you’re wrong. Cinemascore is more predictive of box office sales than anything else.

            MoS was loved and hated by few and mediocre to most. The MCU movies are generally liked by most, loved by many and hated by few. You’ve got your bias hat on. The MCU has created huge passion in old fans and new.

          • BR

            I’VE got my bias hat on? Dude you’re the one who came to an article on BvS just to troll…

          • Carl

            I’m sorry you think it’s trolling but I’m not blindly buying BvS tickets because all I have to go off are trailers that have me worried and the mediocre MoS.

          • Whatsupdoc

            Why do Marvel fanboys have to comment on virtually every article related to DC news? It’s almost like you guys are really insecure with your place or something. I have to admit, I can’t blame you. I mean, striking back room deals just to use the most popular character you have in your own movie, and just a cameo at that. Man, that’s really gotta sting.

          • Carl

            It’s almost as if I like both Marvel and DC and want to know about both of their movies.

            I don’t really care much about Spiderman, I like all of the Avengers more than him but he’s back in the fold and more than a cameo. Feige is producing the next solo Spiderman movie and it is supposed to be part of the MCU.

            It bothers me as a DC fan that WB has the rights to all the DC characters and has only successfully adapted one, Batman.

          • Whatsupdoc

            Right… those Donner Superman movies really sucked (sarcasm). And MOS making way more than any other stand alone phase 1 Marvel film did well, Snyder just got lucky am I right;. But in all seriousness, don’t sit their and try to convince me that your a fan of anything other than Marvel.

            Save that for the lemmings.
            I just think its sad that Marvel had to sell off the rights to their most popular CB characters (by far), because their company was on the verge of bankruptcy. What a shame.

          • Carl

            I never really liked the Donner movies, is that really surprising? MoS certainly had an easier path to success than any of the Phase 1 Marvel films due to brand recognition.

            Why do you keep bringing up old news? No one cares about Marvel having to sell rights to characters. The comic industry as a whole was doing really poorly. Comics don’t make a lot of money. It’s far more remarkable that Marvel was near bankruptcy and now grossing billions in the box office.

          • SAMURAI36

            you’ve got some nerve, lamenting about someone bringing up “old news”, when you’re here bringing up those same old tired arguments about MOS, that have been refuted many times already.
            You claim to be both a Marvel & DC fan, yet you’ve spent all your time in this thread alone, cheerleading for Marvel, & finding the same ol’ tired ways to throw shade on DC.
            You claim you’re not trolling, yet you’ve said nothing relevant here. You’ve already stated that you’re in no hurry to watch BVS, so what are you really doing in this thread?

          • Carl

            Relax man. I just don’t like MoS much. It’s got great action but is dull in-between with no personally. I hope BvS is better but nothing I’ve seen tells me that yet.

          • Whatsupdoc

            What a surprise… you didn’t like something from WB/DC. If Superman has relied on nothing more than brand recognition, then explain the financial failure of Superman Returns? Also, DC was really close to buying Marvel at that time so no, DC wasn’t in bad shape. Just Marvel.

            If no one cares about the rights being sold how come every single CB fan known to man was screaming at Sony to sell the rights to Spiderman back to Marvel. Expecially after TASM2. If it’s no big deal why did Marvel try so hard to get the rights back for The Hulk, Ghost Rider, Blade, The Punisher, oh and lets not forget Daredevil. Here’s the facts. If not for studios like Sony and Fox purchasing these rights, Marvel would be out of business right now. But then again perhaps the same could be said for WB/DC.

          • SAMURAI36

            Very true. Add to that, the negative press that’s been spread about MOS recently.
            No one can convince me that Disney/Marvel wasn’t behind that.

          • SAMURAI36

            I guess RT is worthless too, since 73% of the RT audience liked MOS?

          • shazwan aqif

            RT is worthless

          • Whatsupdoc

            Are you saying that you, me, and everyone else in this comment section are worthless? Sorry man, but I’ll take the opinon of someone I know and trust over some critic that I have never met before 6 days a week and twice on Sunday. Just my two cents.

          • shazwan aqif

            i was talking about the critic in RT not the audiences. MOS is one of my fav superhero movies beside TWS and TDK.the 56% that the critics gave was pretty unfair

          • SAMURAI36

            I agree, most of these review sites are pretty worthless. specially when you are paid to review something. It’s far too easy for your opinion to be swayed.
            Especially when most of the bad “reviews” about MOS, are from people who didn’t appear to watch the movie in the first place.

            yep, that’s why I never look on to the review sites before I go watch a movie.If i like it then it’s good, if i don’t then screw it, it’s a bad movie to me.Ant man had a huge rating but to me it wasn’t that good at all. Same goes to AOU.(Before anyone attacks me, I really love the winter soldier. One of my fav movies)

            Sure but compare that to GotG at 92%, Ant Man at 87%, Iron Man at 91%, Avengers at 91%, Iron Man 3 at 79%, Winter Soldier at 92% and AoU at 84%. That’s just audience score, they all have Man of Steel beat critically by a wide margin.

            That is why people don’t bring it up if you want to compare MoS to other superhero movies.

            Notice how you didn’t name nearly half the MCU movies, most of those being the Phase 1 films. So MOS, which is–according to you, & not many other people–such a terrible film, both outscored, as well as outgrossed Phase 1.
            So now what’s your point?

          • Carl

            Check your math, I named more than half and had 2 Phase 1 films in there. Didn’t need to name them all but if you need me to say it, every MCU movie did better critically and about as well with audiences.

          • SAMURAI36

            Was Cinemascore wrong, when they gave both AOU & TWS the same score (both A)?
            Furthermore, was IGN wrong for their score (9 out of 10)? Was Screenrant wrong for their score (4 out of 5)? Was Rolling Stone wrong for their review (3 out of 4)? Was Ebert’s site wrong for their review (3 out of 4)? Was Empire magazine wrong for ranking MOS #286 on the 300 movie GOAT’s?
            Were the various awards shows wrong for all the dozens of nominations the film got?
            Are ALL these wrong? Or, is it that they just don’t fit your view?
            (Be careful, that’s a trick question BTW).

          • Carl

            No cinemascore isn’t wrong it just isn’t very meaningful. Bad movies can get good cinemascores. It’s more about buzz than anything else.

            Yes IGN was wrong for their 9 / 10 score. MoS is not a great movie by any standard. I wouldn’t go around naming good reviews because for nearly every good one you name I can find a poor one. It’s not just that though, Man of Steel just isn’t that well received.

          • SAMURAI36

            Again, you’re just parroting what’s already been said. If you could pull up all these negative reviews, then you’d have done it already.
            So then, put your money where your mouth is, or GTFO.

          • Carl

            No need to they are readily available on the internet.

          • Latheal

            How do you actually back that up? Worldwide Box Office higher than all of Phase 1, in fact higher than the majority of most of the marvel films excluding the team up “event” movies and sold almost twice as much on DVD/Digital than IM3 (Marvel’s largest Solo film).
            The stats don’t back you up, If it wasn’t well received, it wouldn’t have done the money it did.

  • Whatsupdoc

    I’m thinking that this is pretty good news… and then I started imagining the kind of numbers JL Pt1. & Pt2. will pull in. :)

    This is a non-story without actual sales numbers. BvS accounting for 59% of ticket sales sounds great but we have no idea how many tickets were being sold yesterday. It’s difficult to compare to the other movies listed when there’s no context. There are a number of other factors that play into that percentage. JW had to contend with Inside Out so that film accounting for 50+% was a big deal. There was a genuine threat there. There’s nothing right now for BvS to compete with as far as ticketing goes. There’s nothing in theaters right now (apart from a 3 week old Deadpool) and the only movie opening against BvS is Greek Wedding 2 which hasn’t opened ticket sales yet. In Austin only one Alamo Drafthouse showing has sold out (over 5 theaters). For comparison SW had sold out 3 full days by early evening. While that’s not a fair comparison (SW being a bigger event movie) it does show that movietickets.com is hardly the benchmark for film success.

    There’s literally no world where this movie doesn’t have at least a respectable opening weekend (I already have my tickets). However, I’ve never seen so many people following what a film is tracking for opening weekend as if it somehow has some direct link to their own life. Relax. The movie will be fine and the DCEU will continue to push forward (too far down the tracks at this point to outright stop it). It doesn’t need to do JW or SW record numbers to be a good film.
