“Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” continues to dominate at the domestic box office as it nears the end of its first week in theaters. Deadline has reported that Zack Snyder’s superhero film has now crossed the $200 million mark, a feat it accomplished in six days. “Batman v Superman’s” current domestic total stands at $201.3M. According to Box Office Mojo, the film’s worldwide earnings now total $530.4M.
Only ten other films have passed the $200M mark in the same amount of time or less; “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” “Jurassic World” and “Avengers: Age of Ultron” also crossed the $200M line in under 6 days in the past year. “BvS” did best “Furious 7,” which took 8 days to hit the milestone around this same time last year.
“Batman v Superman” earned $8.1M on Wednesday, marking a 33% fall from its record-breaking Tuesday haul. The film did not break the box office record for a Wednesday in March; “The Passion of the Christ” still holds that record from when it earned $8.4M on Wednesday, March 3, 2004. The film broke the record for the biggest earnings on a Tuesday in March this week when it brought in $12.2M.
Additionally, Deadline’s report states that the film is still Fandango’s top-seller and that repeat ticket purchases for the film are “30% higher than your average blockbuster.”
