Batman Vs Superman Ends Up Doubling Its Thursday On Its 2nd Friday Earning $15.3mn. The 3 Times 5 Figure Is 72% Down From Its Last Friday And 82% From First Day Including Previews.

It Now Stands At $225mn After 8 Days Of Release Which Is 11th Highest Ever After IronMan 3 $232mn.

Comparing With Other Films The 100% Growth On 2nd Friday  Is Heart Breaking

  • Avengers : Age Of Ultron : $21.3mn (146%)
  • Iron Man 3 : $19.7mn (159%)
  • Furious 7 : $18mn (129%)

Furious 7 Is Best Comparison To Make As Daily Trend Is A Bit Lower Than It. Furious 7 After 8 Days Was At $210mn i.e. Around $15mn Less Than Batman Vs Superman But Gap Is Decreasing Steadily Considering First Weekend Drop Was $19mn. It Had A 2nd Weekend Of $59mn But If Batman Vs Superman Have A Similar Trend In 8-10th Day It Will Mint $48mn. Furious 7 Holds Superbly After 2nd Weekend Grossing $100mn Approx. But Here Grossing $60-75mn After 2nd Weekend For Batman Vs Superman Will Be More Likely Which Will Put It At $320-335mn Lifetime.

Atleast the film has shown good growth.Now 2nd weekend should be around $50 mn.

Growth Was Bound To Happen Man. In USA Nirnally Suoerhero Films Saw 125-200% Growth On 2nd Friday Unless They Have Some Benefit On Thursday. But Here Weekdays Trend Was Bad And Now Very Loss Growth. $50mn Weekend Will Actually Means 70% Drop.

Harry Potter 7 dropped much bigger than BvS on its 2nd friday, and still earned $380 million in the US. So hopes are still alive for BvS.

answered by Assistant Director (42.8k points)

Harry Potter Dropped As It Faced Captain America Not Due To Bad Reception. It Holds Well In Weekdays Too Unlike BvS. Moreover Drop Seems Big Due To The Fact $43mn Thursday Previews In First Weekend Otherwise It Was 61% Drop Whereas BvS Is Looking Fir 66-67% Drop From Fri-Sun.
As Per Hourly Gross Of Saturday BvS Is Looking Fir $19.5-20.5mn Which is mere 30% Rise From Friday. 2nd Weekend Is Now Looking To $47-50mn.
