Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is falling faster than a speeding bullet.
No matter what your opinion on Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, there’s no denying that it’s a box office juggernaut. Zack Snyder’s long-anticipated superhero showdown shattered records during its opening weekend, and this week, it crossed two major milestones, hitting $201.3 million domestically and $530.4 million worldwide. Any way you look at it, Batman v Superman is a certified hit at the box office — but with scathing reviews and so-so fan response, the biggest question is where will it go from here?
This post has been updated with official Monday numbers.
Looks like those mediocre reviews weren’t box office kryptonite after all.
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice shattered box office records, opening to $166.1 million domestically over Easter weekend.
This weekend, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will soar into theaters, as Zack Snyder attempts to answer the age-old question of who would win in a fight between the Dark Knight and the Man of Steel. The second most important question of the holiday, however, is exactly how high Dawn of Justice will fly at the box office – and what records it’ll break along the way.
It’s been 14 years since we first met the overbearing, Windex-worshipping Portokalos family, as ugly duckling Toula (Nia Vardalos) tied the knot with vegetarian WASP Ian (John Corbett) in My Big Fat Greek Wedding. Now Vardalos is revisiting—and recycling—the movie, which earned her an Oscar nomination for Best Original Screenplay, with a harmless but forgettable sequel.
It’s been 14 years since My Big Fat Greek Wedding broke out as a surprise olive oil-slicked hit, entertaining audiences with its missive about the magical healing power of Windex while delivering a sweet take on breaking free from family tradition. Though it became immediately obvious that fans would welcome a sequel, Vardalos decided that other matters – namely motherhood – would take priority.
My Big Fat Greek Wedding premiered in 2002, and by the time we get around to its 14th anniversary, the sequel will be in theaters. After the release of the trailer for My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2, the poster has arrived and…well, prepare yourself for some major déjà vu.
The Portokalos family is back!
In the first trailer for My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2, there’s another big fat Greek wedding on the way. As Toula and Ian’s daughter, Paris, prepares to leave her overprotective family behind in favor of a college far, far away, Gus and Maria discover the priest who officiated their wedding — well, he forgot to sign the paperwork.
