Batman v Superman box office hits $500 million worldwide
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is proving as unstoppable as its heroes: Warner Bros. announced Wednesday that Zack Snyder’s superhero epic has crossed $500 million after just five days in theaters.
Through Tuesday, Batman v Superman has raked in an estimated $501.9 million worldwide, including $193.3 million domestically.
“We’re so proud that Batman v Superman has become the must-see event film of the season for fans the world over,” WB president of worldwide distribution Veronika Kwan Vandenberg said in a statement. “These incredible numbers are building momentum for not only this movie, but for the upcoming slate of DC Super Hero films.”
Since opening this weekend to a whopping $166 million domestically and $256.5 million internationally, Batman v Superman has set multiple box office records. It currently boasts the biggest March opening of all time, as well as the biggest Batman or DC Comics opening ever, and it fell just shy of surpassing Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 to earn Warner Bros.’ biggest opening ever. In all, Batman v Superman has the seventh-biggest domestic opening of all time and the fourth-biggest global opening.
