Batman V Superman Box Office – Crossed $468 Million Worldwide


Batman V Superman Box OfficeThe Warner Bros./Time Warner Inc. picture Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice earned an additional $31 million overseas, bringing its foreign total to $287.5m thus far. And now along with the $181m domestic earnings, the picture has earned $468.6m worldwide.

Now unless something happens and the movie collapses today, we can expect the numbers to cross $500 million worldwide today.

In terms of worldwide profits, it’s already rapidly moving up the list of all-time grosser – $468.6 million total already puts it at 173 on the all-time list. If not being mistaken and today’s gross comes to around $506-$511m, it will be just past The Revenant ($506m). Otherwise, it will have to be adequate for being just ahead of Ghost ($505.7m), Aladdin ($504m), or Rio 2 ($500m). But it’ll be all-but-certainly be in the top 150 by the end of today.

Regarding comic book/superhero movies, it is already past $441 million global gross of Men in Black 2, Paramount/Viacom Inc.’s Thor ($449m) and every one of Fox’s X-Men movies except for X-Men: Days of Future Past and Deadpool. It’ll surpass Paramount’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles ($491m) and Walt Disney’s Ant-Man ($519m) pretty quickly and move up the list over the weekend.

Regarding DC Comics movies, it’s already a bigger grosser than everything save Man of Steel ($668 million) and the last two Dark Knight sequels (over $1 billion a pop). Counting the likes of Sony’s Men in Black, Pixar’s The Incredibles, Sony’s Hancock, and Warner’s The Matrix Reloaded, it’s already among the top-30 comic book and/or superhero movies of all time worldwide.

If these numbers stay consistent, we’re looking at around $35-$45 million a day worldwide for the next three days heading into the second weekend. That means a global total of around $575m-$605m global before the start of the second weekend. It could be smaller, it could be bigger, but those are the approximate figures for the moment.
