Batman Vs. Superman Opens Strong With $27.7 Million Thursday Preview
It doesn't appear as if the critics reviews are going to slow down Zack Snyder's Batman vs. Superman as the film opened strong for its Thursday night preview.
Deadline reports Batman Vs. Superman brought in $27.7 million last night, which beats out Marvel’s The Avengers: Age of Ultron, The Avengers and Iron Man 3 as well as Warner Bros. own The Dark Knight.
Batman vs. Superman's Thursday night preview also gives it the best pre-Easter Thursday night preview ever, besting last year's Furious 7.
It's speculated the opening weekend for Batman Vs. Superman may bring in over $160 million domestically, with over $350 million total worldwide.
"Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" has a March 25, 2016 release directed by Zack Snyder starring Ben Affleck as Batman, Henry Cavill as Superman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Laurence Fishburne as Perry White, Diane Lane as Martha Kent, Jeremy Irons as Alfred, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Ray Fisher as Cyborg with Callan Mulvey, Holly Hunter as Senator Finch and Tao Okamoto as Mercy Graves.
Fearing the actions of a god-like Super Hero left unchecked, Gotham City’s own formidable, forceful vigilante takes on Metropolis’s most revered, modern-day savior, while the world wrestles with what sort of hero it really needs. And with Batman and Superman at war with one another, a new threat quickly arises, putting mankind in greater danger than it’s ever known before.
