NORTH AMERICA: ‘Batman v Superman’ Totals $273.3M in Two Weeks After Leading Thursday with $2.72M; ‘Zootopia’ Remains in Second with $1.58M

Warner’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice took in $2.72 million on Thursday to lead the daily box office for a 14th consecutive day. The blockbuster 3D superhero film starring Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill fell 4 percent from Wednesday and a sharp 65 percent from last Thursday. Batman v Superman was the week’s top film with a weekly take of $64.18 million. That represented a very sharp 69 percent decline from the film’s opening week performance and brings the film’s two-week total to $273.25 million. Batman v Superman is currently running a slim 3 percent on ahead of the $265.35 million two-week take of last year’s Furious 7, but is likely to see its percentage lead shrink further over the upcoming weekend.

Disney’s Zootopia continued to claim second place with $1.58 million. The blockbuster 3D computer animated film was up 5.5 percent over Wednesday and down 51 percent from last Thursday. Zootopia placed in second for the week with $25.72 million. The film was down just 33 percent from the previous frame and has grossed a massive $281.66 million in five weeks of release. That places the film 23 percent ahead of the $229.23 million five-week yskr of 2014’s The LEGO Movie.

Universal’s My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 held steady in third place with $0.850 million. The long-awaited comedy sequel starring and written by Nia Vardalos decreased 5 percent from Wednesday and 48 percent from last Thursday. My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 passed the $40 million mark yesterday and has grossed $40.33 million in two weeks. The film took third place for the week with $14.97 million, which was down 41 percent from the previous week.

Faith-based films Miracles from Heaven and God’s Not Dead 2 claimed fourth and fifth place with respective daily grosses of $0.558 million and $0.460 million. For the week, Pure Flix’s God’s Not Dead 2 placed in fourth with $9.78 million, while Sony’s Miracles from Heaven finished very closely behind with $9.73 million. Respective total grosses stand at $49.01 million for Miracles from Heaven in 23 days and at a softer than expected $9.78 million for God’s Not Dead 2 in one week.
