Weekend Box Office Report: March 25-27, 2016

03.27.2016

Batman v Superman = $$$!

The highly anticipated confrontation between two of the world's most popular superheroes was the main attraction at the box office this weekend as BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE soared to the top with an estimated $170.1 million!

Director Zack Snyder's clash of iconic DC Comics characters was virtually guaranteed to have an epic debut, which it accomplished by crushing the records for best March opening weekend (easily defeating the $152.5 million of previous champ THE HUNGER GAMES) and biggest Easter weekend, ahead of FURIOUS 7's $147.1 million opening last year.

Additionally, the PG-13 precursor to the ensemble JUSTICE LEAGUE scored the biggest opening for any DC Comics adaptation, surging ahead of the $160.8 million start of THE DARK KNIGHT RISES. Adding Ben Affleck's caped crimefighter (and Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman) also boosted the last son of Krypton into the financial stratosphere beyond the $116.6 million opening of his solo adventure MAN OF STEEL.

Faithful fans rushed to witness the costumed conflict, feeding $82 million toward the total from its Friday opening day (although that figure includes Thursday night screenings) to see their favorite heroes hammer each other through buildings this Easter weekend.

For those who follow the old Marvel/DC rivalry, BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE also had a bigger opening weekend than all other comic book adaptations except for Marvel's IRON MAN 3 ($174.1 million), AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON ($191.2 million) and THE AVENGERS ($207.4 million).

The extravagant superhero smackdown (which cost a reported $250 million) also gathered $254 million from international audiences, giving it a worldwide opening weekend total of $424 million. Not everyone was thrilled by the spectacle, however -- the movie currently holds a 29% critical average on Rotten Tomatoes.

The clamorous contest of champions finally nudged Disney's ZOOTOPIA from the top down to second place with $23.1 million on its fourth weekend in theaters. The animal-packed family feature is now at nearly $700 million worldwide, making it the Mouse House's biggest (non-Pixar) animated movie outside of FROZEN and THE LION KING.

Opening in third place was the counterprogramming comedy MY BIG FAT GREEK WEDDING 2 with $18.1 million (just about its reported production cost). The first MY BIG FAT GREEK WEDDING slowly rolled out in 2002 and stayed in theaters for an entire year before ending with $241 million domestic and $368 million worldwide (on a $5 million budget). Critics didn't seem to find the sequel particularly necessary, judging by the movie's 24% Rotten Tomatoes average.

The faith-based Jennifer Garner drama MIRACLES FROM HEAVEN held up well on the religious holiday weekend, sliding only one spot from last week's third place opening with $9.5 million (a drop of only 36%). The same can't be said for THE DIVERGENT SERIES: ALLEGIANT as the third chapter in that dystopian young-adult series plunged 67% from its second place opening last weekend for $9.5 million and a 10-day domestic total of $46.6 million.

10 CLOVERFIELD LANE was in sixth with $6 million, and the J.J. Abrams-produced thriller is at a $56 million domestic total on its third weekend. DEADPOOL followed in seventh with $5 million, and remains the biggest superhero movie of 2016... for the time being. LONDON HAS FALLEN continued falling to eighth with $2.9 million.

At the bottom of the list, the Sally Field comedy HELLO, MY NAME IS DORIS expanded to 488 screens and jumped into ninth place with $1.7 million. The drone thriller EYE IN THE SKY also added 88 screens to its limited release and swooped into tenth with $1 million.

Outside the chart, THE REVENANT scrambled out of sight (again) with Tina Fey's WHISKEY TANGO FOXTROT, the romcom THE PERFECT MATCH and Sacha Baron Cohen's THE BROTHERS GRIMSBY. In limited release, Tom Hiddleston apparently didn't make much of an impression as Hank Williams and the biopic I SAW THE LIGHT had an unremarkable $10k per-screen average.

Next weekend delivers the sequel GOD'S NOT DEAD 2 and the Mike Epps comedy MEET THE BLACKS, while limited releases include Don Cheadle's Miles Davis biopic MILES AHEAD and (on Wednesday) Richard Linklater's EVERYBODY WANTS SOME!! (the two exclamation points are part of the title, not implied excitement).

Almost Perfect

BVS is not perfect in a lot of ways, but Afleck was a standout Bruce Wayne. As was Gal Gadot.
As far as I'm concerned in my opinion, the movie critics who blasted this movie can kiss my ass! This was a good way to kill an afternoon and worth the price of admission.

Curious what would be preventing Warner Bros from releasing the director's cut theatrically for a limited time in the next couple of weeks. I liked the movie, but am really interested to see how that extra 30 minutes effects the final product. The reviews have nowhere to go but up, and I'm fairly certain there is a sizeable population who would open their wallets again. Why the hell not??

Nice

I think the movie, just like Watchmen, will get more appreciated over time. People went in with a certain expectation on how a ComicBookMovie should be and clearly BvS isn't that type of CBM (like Marvel's for example) or anything else before (beside Watchmen). You see it in reviews who said that it isn't fun and to dark, but why should it? The source comic isn't fun and you wouldn't expect a war movie to be light & fun. I get people who want a lighter Superman (me too and while I liked MoS,

You see it in reviews who said that it isn't fun and to dark, but why should it? The source comic isn't fun and you wouldn't expect a war movie to be light & fun. I get people who want a lighter Superman (me too and while I liked MoS, the next Superman movie has to be optimistic and light), but this was never the story for it.
And another problem (like j-man said) seems like people don't want to invest too much in a movie. If they don't get something directly, it gets marked as stupid. If you think about some scenes in context of the whole movie, they make sense. Everybody who is laughing off the (SPOILER: Martha-Moment :SPOILER-END) for example, clearly didn't get it, or didn't want to. There is meaning to the scenes and most of them make sense and only because a movie doesn't explain them in detail, doesn't mean it's not there, you just have to think about them.
So I really think the movie will gain support over time...

I use watchmen as an example. Its a great movie. but you have to bring something to it. its not a passive experience. I dont like comparing to marvel (since i love marvel and dc equally) but its different - which is good.
I also want the good old Chris Reeve style back, but its not happing.
People continually say superman sucks, or isnt modern or is too silly- i dont agree at all, but now that we get a realistic look at him, everyone hates it.

well sorry to burst your bubble but when the good guy godzilla runs through the city to fight gigan he breaks buildings and probably kills people while the children cheeer for him. superman is trying to save the PLANET! there is going to be colateral damage - Sorry, but Captain America saving one person in the middle of a fucking war doesnt mean he saved everyone. People died in Transformers, Avengers, Godzilla etc. thats how it goes.
This movie addressed all the MOS problems in a clever way too.
Anyway, the DC fans should enjoy it. If not, that is ok too.
Zack had to go with what the studio wants - its not all him. They want WW in there, they want flash, aquaman etc. Joel Schumacher was FORCED to do stuff by the studio, same with Raimi etc.
Zack did the best job he could getting in all those characters and setting up a franchise while still making a kick ass movie on its own.
if you want to hate it, no worries, ill get my bluray copy and wait for WW to come out.
PS Marvel movies are also great for their own reasons too - so i am pumped for civil war also!

I know I've said this before. For those of you who were disappointed, including myself, I wouldn't put the blame entirely on Synder. I also blame the writers. David Goyer has got to go, the man doesn't know how to tell a story. I wish they would diversify the DCU a little more with different directors and writers instead of giving Synder the reigns for Justice League. The guy has talent, but he has got to lay off of some of the explosions and slow motion, it was borderline Michael Bay for BvS.

I actually LOVE his slow motion. he does it extremely well. Snyder is a far better visual artist than Bay. My fav parts in BvS were some of the slow mo majestic pieces, especially the intro along with that score, yeesh

I TOTALLY agree with you Casketmouth
I love his SlowMo too !
Had he filmed the action scenes of both MoS ans BvS with the same slowmo that he used on Watchmen, for instance... Basically, if people could see what's fucking going on on the screen... I'm sure people would not bash them as they did/do... OF COURSE they would complain about the slowmo instead, because they need to complain about something !

I also agree with casketmouth. I thought the Martha and Thomas Wayne death was stunning. Reminded me of the opening credit scene of Watchmen. I thought I would roll my eyes and yet another flashback of the batman origin but he handled it just right.

I agree whole heartedly on the story - the issues I have with both MoS and BvS is down to the story/writing for me. As far as style go, I love what Synder does - massive fan of Watchmen and 300. Absolutely enjoyed the hell out of Dawn of the Dead. May be it it's just me, may be I expect more from something I have a genuine interest in or may be I'm right and the writing has let both the DC movies down.

I don't have issues with anyone liking this movie - it all gets pretty venomous on here but for me, it was very meh. I didn't hate it but I didn't enjoy it either. Getting Superman and Batman's relationship right can be accomplished in one movie’s length of time (the two part Superman/Batman animated series crossover back in the 90's proved this) but to go from Batman absolutely hating on Supes to "friends" in one movie requires more than just hearing the ice breaking “Martha”. Then you have

Then you have the impact of Superman’s death. I didn’t feel it and that’s not because we all know he’ll be okay. I dunno…but Superman Doomsday animated movie can show that a death scene can be both heroic and emotionally charged and that wasn’t even half way in to the movie – that movie did it wonderfully well. Supes dying here…I dunno, I wanted to feel sad…but it wasn’t. Whilst I think Cavill makes for a good Superman it doesn’t help that I just have not taken to him yet…invested in his character. I can nitpick the heck out of this movie (Lex appears to have given our heroes their symbols) but that’s not the issue I have with the movie – all movies can be nitpicked – the movie tried to cover very complex (or not, may be) relationships and give us a death scene that should have been heartbreaking… for me, it failed to deliver the impact the comic books or even their less developed animated movies have achieved with the same material.

I think the lack of impact has to do with it being such a short fight. The action is all sped-up and jerky (due to CGI not being up to the task of that level of a fight yet), so it kind of goes from him not having a mark on him (and being obviously weaker than Doomsday.....which is different from the comics) to him dying just a couple of minutes later. That's really fast to have it happen. I felt it when Lois reacted (I thought Adams was spectacular in the film), then again during some of

If they could have done it like the animated film (where he was slowly getting beaten to death, then finally gave it everything before he died), it would have had so much more impact. I'm kind of surprised they didn't spend any time with the reaction of the TV audiences No one had the chance to say, "Who the frack is that woman???" or see how Kal was being physically dominated by the monster.

Hate on me all you want

I'm glad a lot of people enjoyed, but I was super disappointed. This has none of the focus on quality writing or characterization (like actual effective characterization not just painfully obvious "we're trying to develop character but don't know how to moments) that the Nolan films did, maybe that's not what everyone wants in their DC comics films (and that's fine), but after Nolan's trilogy, it's one of the big things that I hope for. The fact that it's raking in the dough means that DC

The fact that it's raking in the dough means that DC won't feel any need to change this in their future films. As a result, I expect that the JLA films will probably have the same issues and I'll be disappointed with them too (although, I really hope I'm wrong). So yeah, this is a definite thumbs down for me.

I read the reviews a few days before release. I was disappointed that it was getting slammed but I dont let critic opinions change my view of a movie. Did the movie have problems? Yes. Was it kind of all over the place? yes. Was it a horrible movie? Not at all. I dont think it deserves a RT score of 30. Most of the reviews I've read said they wish it was more Marvel. This isnt Marvel and I hate that they compare the two when writting their revews. This is also coming from critics that praise

This film was much better than Age of Ultron which of course, has a fresh rating. Do I still go see them? Yes but not all of them deserve fresh ratings and are forgetable. I would still give this movie a solid 7/10. I also would like to see it again which i can't say about certain Marvel movies.

I just finsihed my second viewing.

It was better the second time around and I noticed a few more details. I can;t believe the critics are savaging this movie other than it's not a Marvel movie. This movie has it's own style and structure, definitely not a copy cat.

The audience today applauded Wonder Woman's appearance, unlike the audience I was with Friday.

While I'm glad it did well....

I'm hoping this is enough to convince DC and WB to make a change in the director's chair. It would really suck if this is going to be the level of the rest of their films. We finally get a Justice League movie (or two) and they're going to be in the 20%-30% range? Someone needs to wake up before it's too late.

Happy to see it did well

I was worried that bad worth of mouth would have hurt its chances of doing well opening weekend and possibly leading to WB putting a hold on future projects. BvS had several problems, but I want to see where they take the characters as well as who they will introduce in the future. Here's hoping Snyder does a better job with Justice League.

Hater tears taste like fine wine

The thing shatters records and all the haters want to talk about is if it will have legs next week. Don't remember any of that talk with Age of Ultron or Star Wars. The public refused to fall prey to the those trying to kill the movie and all there is is still negativity. Just accept that this is happening and the DCEU just launched in a big way and sit tight through 2020, just like we'll all sit through the next 5 years of Marvel movies.

If you think it was bad, that's your opinion. No one else can make that opinion until they've seen it.

@ zkirkland24 I bet you're a marvel fanboy, which mean you spent your money on other crap the last time you went to see iron man 2 / 3, Thor 2, and age of ultron.

Regardless of how you feel, arguing that this statement isn't true is retarded. Of course people love spending money on crap, remember people McDonalds is the #1 restaurant in the world. Don't argue with fools because from a distance, people can't tell who is who.

Pretty strong showing from BvS. But with such a low RT score, and a lot of people not liking the movie that much, it will be interesting to see how much money in makes in it's second and third week.

I waited until I seen it before commenting.

I think the BvS hits the nail on the head. Affleck does a perfect Wayne/Batman which nobody has got right yet. Nobody has been right in both parts to me.
Cavill is still great as the Superman in training and the other cameos where great, especially Wonder Woman.
There were problems, of course. I didn't like Lex or the Abomination/Doomsday but overall myself and my daughter totally enjoyed the film. She's 8 and can't decide who she prefers. Batman or Superman.
I would like to see Snyder take

I would like to see Snyder take a back seat now. Bring in someone else who could add a new dimension to the Justice League.

The people who have these negative views dont really state why. Like what was so bad that its "fucking garbage" or its a "turd" those are strong words - what is the backup to those words?
First off, if you know anything about the characters in this film, then the plot holes dont exist, or they are set ups for future movies. Plus they still made a cool movie on its own. Its not just a set up movie.
The people who dont get it, are just not paying attention or thinking. It's like watchmen.

The people who dont get it, are just not paying attention or thinking. It's like watchmen. people either get it and love it, or dont and hate it. Critics are not going to like this movie because it doesnt take time to establish things that other movies do. this movie EXPECTS YOU TO DO SOME WORK. you CANNOT go in blind.
You have to either research a bit, or know the characters and who they are beforehand.
YES I KNOW a movie should stand on its own terms. you shouldnt have to know about stuff before hand, so that was a mistake by the film makers, but EVEN saying that, you get enough moments that explain the plot and motivations of the characters if you pay attention.
So yes, i know that the movie doesnt make a lot of sense if you are coming in with NO knowledge ahead of time. Critics are like that, they arent going to go read Dark Knight Returns (even so-called "fans" dont want to go read it). Critics need the movie to be self contained and this movie is not. BUT DC fans should get a kick out of it.

J-Man,

Well playedl Watchmen was fantastic, I recognize Snyder's style, so no worries there. But ultimately, it was a set up movie to the Justice League...

I am saying that people who say it's fucking garbage don't give any reasons.

If it's fucking garbage there must be a lot wrong. Visuals action acting casting music story plot (plot and story are not the same) Character motivations pacing, editing etc.
That is ten things that can affect a movie. So are people saying all 10 of those things were bad.

I knew you were, but that is a lie because they in-fact do give reasons why.

Yes, it was all very similar to The Dark Knight Returns. They even had a scene with Bruce Wayne looking at Robin's costume implying that Robin is dead. (That's the only part that wasn't explained by the dialogue. Well, that and the parademons and the omega symbol in the dream sequence.) This is probably the closest we will ever get to an adaption of The Dark Knight Returns. It's amazing that we got as faithful an adaption as we did. Hell, we even got a version of the Joker running around

I've seen it twice and it really is one of the best comic book films (and also one of my favorites) I've ever seen. Great action, storytelling, direction, and set up for Justice League and I would expect nothing less with two of comic book's most iconic superheroes going head to head. Deserves every penny it's made and is going to make and the critics who gave this film negative reviews got this ALL wrong. Love the fact that DC made such a daring, inventive, and just overall different comic

I guess those film critics should retract what they wrote now that they know their opinions didn't match up with yours.

Regardless of its flaws. 29% suggests it's worse than both Wolverine Films, Iron Man 2 and 3, Thor 2, and X-Men 3 and Ben Affleck's Daredevil. That notion is completely ridiculous

The Rotten Tomatoes method of rating movies is flawed. A lot of critics had complaints about the movie being boring and not being fun enough but that doesn't mean that they consider it a bad movie similar to an Owe Boll feature. It is a competently made film that a lot of critics didn't enjoy. They should count all the "Meh" reviews as 50% and not 0%. After all, when a critic likes a movie then they count that as 100% but that doesn't mean they think the movie is perfect.

Let's enjoy saying a big FU to the critics and haters who tried but failed to damage this movie box office instead they helped it go over the original prediction's! They have been exposed since their complaints from the start of the week made no damn sense and showed they either didn't even watch the movie or thought this was going to be a Disney flick either way Failed! Even critics on this site swore i read one give it a 4 or 5 out of ten! Exposed! No one can spin this into a negative!! They will try though! This movie did it's job and it was epic!!! I laugh how the writer on this read is kind of talking down the big weekend and even selling rotten tomatoes who have been exposed.

OK. Just because it makes a ton of money on its opening, or later, doesn't mean it's good. It's Batman vs Superman. So of course it's going to make a lot of money. The Transformers movies also made a lot of money, but they sucked, but according to your logic they were great because they made a lot of money.

Also what was the cinemascore from audiences? Looks like audiences liked it well enough to give it a "B".
