Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

You’ll Never Believe Which Movie Beat ‘Batman V Superman’ At The Box Office

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, the Warner Bros. superhero epic featuring two of the most popular comic book characters of all time, was narrowly defeated by the Melissa McCarthy comedy vehicle The Boss at the domestic box office this weekend.

The actress’ latest film debuted with $23.5 million, which puts it just ahead of Batman v Superman’s weekend haul of $23.4 million. The latter film has earned an estimated $296.7 million domestically since releasing on March 25.

While Batman v Superman’s 54% week-to-week drop wasn’t as dramatic as the previous weekend’s, it was still significant for a film that reportedly needs to earn $1 billion worldwide just to turn a profit. However, it’s worth noting that the film still came in at number 1 at the worldwide box office, adding $57.4 million. The film now sits at an estimated worldwide gross of $783.4 million.

With competition poised to heat up in the coming weeks in the form of blockbusters such as The Jungle Book and The Huntsman: Winter’s War, it will only become more difficult for Batman v Superman to maintain enough momentum to get to that $1 billion goal.

The Top 10 worldwide and domestic weekend box office estimates, listed in descending order, respective, are as follows:
