‘Batman V Superman’ nears $700 mn; Zootopia is ahead at around $800 mn

MUMBAI: The critically lambasted ‘Batman V Superman – Dawn Of Justice is nearing the $700 million mark, but it fell dramatically in its second weekend in the US to the tune of 68 per cent. 

Animation film ‘Zootopia’, on the other hand, is nearing $800 million.

comScore has announced the official worldwide weekend box office estimates for the weekend of 3 April, as compiled by the company’s theatrical measurement services. 

What gives ‘Batman V Superman – Dawn Of Justice’ space is the fact that the next big movie ‘The Jungle Book’ opens on 15 April. The upcoming weekend is somewhat clear.

comScore senior media analyst Paul Dergarabedian commented, “Another Bat-tastic weekend at the global box office as Warner Bros.’ ‘Batman Vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice’ adds $137.5 million to its already impressive total and finishes its second weekend with $682.8 million in the superhero box-office bank.  Meanwhile, Disney’s animated family hit ‘Zootopia’ continues to roar across the world with an eye toward its next milestone, the $800 million mark.”
