'Batman v Superman' Destroys Box Office And Smashes Records

Despite dismal reviews, Batman v superman, dawn of justice, took down the box office crown en route to setting some records. The superhero flick pulled in 170.1 million dollars its opening weekend, a March record for any movie. The opening was also the 6th best all time, and 4th best for a comic book adaptation. Overseas, the Ben affleck starrer gained an extra 254 million for a global haul of 424.1 million dollars. That beats any worldwide opening for a Marvel movie, DC's biggest competitor in the space. The opening success should also lead to a bright future for the DC cinematic Universe, which has a full slate of 10 films slotted to open through 2020
