Batman v Superman Drops to Second, Passes Deadpool Worldwide
The Boss just beat Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice this weekend. The film debuted in first with an estimated $23.48 million, while Batman v Superman earned an estimated $23.43 million. Yes, that’s just a difference of $45,000.
While I’m sure many will give Batman v Superman crap, but it is the third highest grossing film domestically for Warner Bros with $296.7 million. Worldwide though, things are looking good for the film. It currently sits in second for the year behind Zootopia and yes, that means the film has earned more worldwide than Deadpool. Batman v Superman has earned $783.5 million while Deadpool has earned $758.8 million. The film currently sits at #59 of all time and will likely be near #50 by the end of the coming week. That will put it ahead of films like Spider-Man 2, Spider-Man and Guardians of the Galaxy. The last of which it has already passed.
In other new films, Hardcore Henry wasn’t all that hardcore and came in fifth with $5.1 million and Demolition was #15 with $1.1 million.
In other comic news Deadpool was #12 with $2.1 million bringing its total to $358.4 million domestically.
Next weekend The Jungle Book and Barbershop: The Next Cut will be coming to domestic theaters, so expect one or both to top the box office.
