Batman V Superman Weekend Box Office Result

Despite being criticized brutally by critics, scoring 29% on rotten tomatoes, 44% on metacritic, the general audience reviews are still quite favorable, 73% on rotten tomatoes and  7.5/10 on Imdb.

Batman V Superman has been dominating the box office with a Domestic Total as of Mar. 27, 2016: $170,100,000 (Estimate) and if it can maintain this triumph, it success will reach its targeted goal which is around a billion, anything less will be considered a loss by WB.

The cast of the film have claimed it to be an audience film rather than critical. Henry Cavill who starred as Superman said “The interesting thing is that we get the critics who have their personal opinions. And the thing about personal opinions is that they always come from a place. And there’s a preconceived idea which you have to get past a critic before you start writing your article or your review, and that affects everything. What is really going to matter, I believe, is what the audience says. Because they’re the ones who are buying tickets, they’re the ones who want to see more of this kind of story or not and so the audience’s voice is loudest and after this weekend the audience, at least partly, will have spoken.

Co-star Amy Adams added: “I know that Zack [Snyder] doesn’t make the movies – or none of us – are making the movies for the critics. You can’t go into it with that perspective. I know we really hope the fans like it and so far the reaction has been really positive on that front. If you’re interested in a film you should see it and form your own opinion rather than just going on the word of somebody [else].
