Final Dawn of Justice Numbers Come In Below Estimates

The final box-office takings for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice‘s opening weekend have been released – and they’re not quite as good as the original estimates suggested.

We earlier reported that early predictions had the divisive superhero epic making $170 million domestic, making it the biggest March opening of all-time, the largest Easter opening, as well as Warner Bros.’ biggest domestic release ever and the sixth biggest domestic opening of all-time.

However, Variety have now reported that the final numbers actually have it as $166.1 million. Admittedly, the $4 million difference isn’t going to bring Warner crashing to the ground, but it does mean that a couple of those records it was previously believed to have taken are now not applicable.

The new figure means that the movie is now the seventh-biggest domestic opening of all-time – dropping just below Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 – as well as no longer being Warner’s biggest-ever opening.

The global opening sits at $420 million, just over half of the $800 million that analysts believe the film will need to make in order for it to be a financial success for Warner Bros., given its $250 million budget.
