The Batman is looking to retain the top spot at the box office this weekend.
Along with officially crossing the $400 million mark worldwide, the Matt Reeves film is set to add another $66 million this weekend stateside. This will bring its domestic haul to $238.5 million by Sunday. The film took in $18.7 million on Friday, which is a healthy 47% decline from last week. That’s a better hold than the second weekends of other DC films such as Batman v. Superman, The Dark Knight Rises, Justice League and The Dark Knight.
With little to no competition this weekend, it is entirely possible the $66 million estimate could increase once the final numbers hit on Monday. Going into next weekend, the film’s only true competition is Paramount’s The Lost City starring Sandra Bullock and Channing Tatum. Even still, it is likely The Batman will continue to dominate the box office until Sony’s Morbius (finally) hits theaters on April 1st.
The Batman is in theaters now.
