HOLLYWOOD—It was an interesting weekend at the box-office, as last week’s champ took a mighty fall. “Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice” which debuted to huge numbers last week, dropped close to 70 percent in its second week only earning $52.4 million.
Less than 2 weeks in theaters the superhero flick has amounted over $260 million at the domestic box-office. Guess it’s a good thing the movie is a big hit overseas, because it doesn’t look like it’ll get past $350 million domestically.
Landing in second place with strong legs is “Zootopia” which added another $20 million to its tally. It’s safe to say by next weekend, this flick will cross the $300 million mark at the domestic box-office. “My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2” is proving to be a hit with audiences earning $11.1 million to nab third place. Religion seems to be piercing into the movie market, with both “God’s Not Dead 2” and “Miracles From Heaven” landing in fourth and fifth place respectively.
The sequel “God’s Not Dead 2” debuted at the box-office with $8.1 million. “Miracles From Heaven” held steady in theaters earning another $7.6 million. I fear that “Batman V. Superman” will fall from grace this weekend, as Melissa McCarthy and her new raunchy comedy “The Boss” will intrigue moviegoers.
