Batman v Superman zooms past $500 million mark

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

Critics may not have showered Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice with rave reviews, but that hasn’t stopped the epic superhero film from shattering records and generating immense profits for the studio backing it.

Warner Bros. released a statement this morning revealing that the Zack Snyder picture has accumulated a colossal $501.9 million at the global box office in only five short days of release.

The action adventure movie now joins the esteemed rank of only a few films to reach the half-a-billion-dollar mark in opening week.

The announcement was delivered by Veronika Kwan Vandenberg, President of Worldwide Distribution, Warner Bros. Pictures.

“We’re so proud that Batman v Superman has become the must-see event film of the season for fans the world over. The incredible numbers are building momentum for not only this movie, but the upcoming slate of DC Superhero films,” Kwan Vandenberg said.

Domestically, the Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill-led film has earned $193.3 million.

    Fan(atics) may hate this movie for how it was pieced together. It really messes with the mythos. “Premature ejaculation” has been said of a certain event in this movie.

    As a detached film, it is extremely entertaining. Ben Affleck NAILS his role as Batman (not the batman any of us have come to know; this Batman is much darker and more violent).

    If they can go in with an open mind and try to remain non-critical, I am confident that anyone with a remote interest in this movie will really enjoy the experience.

    This movie is terrible. But hey fanboys like Nick making excuses and filling WB pockets so that nothing will change. WB will continue to make trash because they know they can. Stop supporting films like this. We deserve better.
