Flop? What flop? Despite the mixed to negative reviews they are getting, movie-goers seems to be watching Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and doing it again and again. Warner Bros. Pictures is currently laughing their way to the bank as BvS: Dawn of Justice has already made over $500 million worldwide…within the first week of release!
Holy shit! I know a lot of people were looking forward to the first live-action film to feature both Batman and Superman, but I don’t think anyone expected these numbers so quickly. I haven’t seen the movie yet (most probably next week) but the numbers augers well for Justice League where Aquaman, Cyborg, Green Lantern and the Flash will join up with Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman.
No matter the final number, half a billion dollars at the box-office means there is no way BvS will be considered a flop. Bad reviews or not, it looks like Marvel is getting some serious competition on the movie front.
