It’s a $254 million overseas debut and a whopping $424.1 million worldwide debut for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. 59% of that foreign total came from 3D screens and 8.5% ($36m) of the global $424m gross came from a record-high 945 IMAX screens. If I was a little nitpicky over that $170.1 million domestic debut this morning, then I have little beyond congrats at this juncture to offer regarding the overseas numbers. It’s a massive debut and a strong start for an important franchise installment.
The first trailer for “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” had a rocky debut when low-quality footage leaked online, basically forcing Warner Bros. to release it. That’s not the case with this latest clip.
