Batman Vs. Superman Performing 40% Less Than Man of Steel At Box Office
For those keeping track, the last four days have seen Batman Vs. Superman perform less than Man of Steel at the box office in the U.S.
Batman vs. Superman is actually now performing 40% less than Man of Steel following both movies' second weekend release.
Batman Vs. Superman has totaled $12,842,495 from this past Monday to Thursday.
Back in 2013, Man of Steel netted $18,847,309 on the same four days.
The difference is $6,004,814.
It's currently a toss up whether or not Batman Vs. Superman will remain #1 for the third weekend in a row as it faces competition from Melissa McCarthy's The Boss, which is currently doing pretty well.
Man of Steel for its third weekend netted around $20.7 million. If Batman vs. Superman continues the current trend, it will do considerably less for its own third weekend.
Currently, Batman vs. Superman has a $723,550,542 worldwide total: $273,250,542 in the U.S., with $450,300,000 internationally.
