Batman v Superman edges closer to $300 Million
While the question of who would win in a slugfest between Batman and Superman may have been answered (sort of), Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice had a new battle at the box office when it took on Melissa McCarthy’s new R-rated comedy The Boss this weekend.
It may be too close to tell from the weekend estimates, but Universal Pictures seem to have taken a slight advantage with $23.49 million compared to Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, which had another substantial 53% plunge in its third weekend for an estimated $23.43 million.
That’s right. McCarthy’s movie is said to be winning the weekend by just $60,000, making it one of the closest races for #1 in a very long time.
While that’s all worked out, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice edges closer to $300 million domestically with $297 million so far.
Internationally, the superhero slugfest added another $34 million this weekend in 67 markets bringing its overseas total to $487 million and about $784 million globally in three weeks.
