'Batman v Superman' gross revised down to $166.1 million

By The Associated Press, 29 March 2016

Final box-office figures took a little wind out of the sails of "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice."


Warner Bros. on Monday revised down the film's weekend gross by $4 million, lowering it from the Sunday estimate of $170.1 million to $166.1 million. Such corrections are common, though the difference for "Batman v Superman" was slightly more than normal and had an effect on the film's place in the record books.

The movie's Easter weekend debut now drops a notch on the biggest openings list to seventh, sliding in behind "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2." That film's $169.2 million opening also retakes its place as Warner Bros.' top debut ever.

It's nevertheless a massive launch for the poorly reviewed "Batman v Superman," marking the biggest presummer debut.
