Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice has claimed a top spot at the box office: the biggest Monday in March.

The DC Comics/Warner Brothers film hauled in $15 million to start the week, topping other big openings of Furious 7 and The Hunger Games by $1 million and $5 million respectively.

In comparison to other big comic book movies, Batman v. Superman's $15 million Monday topped both Iron Man 3 and Avengers: Age of Ultron, two summer releases, by $4 million and $2 million respectively.

Over the weekend, Dawn of Justice claimed a spot among the top 10 biggest opening weekends with over $400 million worldwide, $166 million of which came domestically.

    Glad to hear it. I'm pleased that the critic circle-jerk isn't keeping everyone away from this movie.

    Saw this movie last night. It was great. Very entertaining. I thought the story was great. Actors did fantastic job( all of them). Loved how they pulled from the comics but made it their own. ( dark night returns and death of superman). I actually thought movie could have been longer. People complaining about this look too much into it. It was a fun dark comic book movie. If you want fun camp go watch batman and robin. Wait that wasn't fun.

  1. Want to complain about the weekend drop now? Lmao.

    Haha, seriously though, this back and forth is getting old. It's going to do just fine despite the effort to kill it. By next Monday critics and haters will be pointing out how it only made a billion and change lol.

  2. Everyone knew the NCAA would siphon ticket sales last weekend.
