Batman V Superman suffers box office drop

Understandably, any movie’s opening weekend is incredibly important at the box office. However, the films the second weekend is often an indication of the films staying power.

Last week, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice broke records by opening with $166 million at the US box office last weekend, but it has suffered a sharp and signifigent 69% drop this weekend.

The Hollywood Reporter sat down with Warner Bros. domestic distribution chief Jeff Goldstein, who said the studio isn’t concerned about such a big drop:

“We’re not concerned with the drop. No matter how you slice it, to get to $52 million on any given weekend is an enormous accomplishment. We’re most focused on where we are in total. And our global number is huge.”

To be fair, he has a point, the global box office figure currently stands at $682.3 million.
