Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice has officially hit theaters and even though it’s not getting any love from the critics, but the fans seem to be showing it plenty of support.
According to Variety, Batman v Superman earned an estimated $44 million worldwide from Thursday’s box office sales, $27 million of that from U.S. sales.
Last year’s Avengers: Age of Ultron brought in $26.6 million on its Thursday night preview. The Marvel film went on to make $84.4 million on its opening Friday and a total of $191.2 million for the weekend. Batman v Superman should earn anywhere from $145 million to $190 million easily taking the #1 spot at the box office.
With the film only getting a current 30% ratting on Rotten Tomatoes from the critics the deciding factor for Batman v Superman will be if word of mouth from the fans will cause a drop off its second weekend out or will there be enough repeat viewing indicating the fans are ignoring the critics.
