Despite enjoying the biggest ever debut for a superhero movie, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice suffered a sharp fall in its second weekend, dropping 68% – the biggest for any Batman or Superman movie.
However, it seems that Warner Bros. isn’t panicked by film’s sharp decline at the box office, with the studio’s chief of domestic distribution Jeff Goldstein telling THR:
“We’re not concerned with the drop. No matter how you slice it, to get to $52 million on any given weekend is an enormous accomplishment. We’re most focused on where we are in total. And our global number is huge.”
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice has earned $682.9 million so far, making it the third biggest movie of 2016 to date behind Zootopia and Deadpool.

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.
