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.
