In the comics, one of Batman’s most sacred virtues is to never kill his foes. That’s not been the case in his cinematic incarnations, where Batman is more than happy to murder dozens of people to get the job done. The latest Batman though, even after one movie, is setting himself up to be the most brutal take ever.
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.
here’s the official HD trailer for Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice. In which absolutely everybody despises Superman, and Batman wants to ask just one. Simple. Question.
