UPDATED “The Batman” Brings Moviegoers Back to Theaters with $255 Mil Worldwide Opening Weekend

Share

Three hours too long for a movie? Nonsense!

And just like that, “The Batman” taught moviegoers to get their snacks in order and plan bathroom breaks.

The Warner Bros. epic scored a massive opening weekend with $134 million in the US, total worldwide $255 million. POW! Will there more of these Matt Reeves movies? You can bet that Riddler and Joker are already plotting the next script.

Otherwise, the box office was quiet. Channing Tatum’s “Dog” is still hunting, with another $6 million in the till. But everything else was laid waste by Bruce Wayne and friends.

Gitesh Pandya, box office expert, writes on Twitter: “Fans spent $38M on seeing #TheBatman on premium scrns this wknd in North America. $15M came from IMAX while $23M came from all other premium format scrns. That’s 30% of the #boxoffice gross coming from those willing to pay for the best big-screen experience”

According to Exhibitor Relations, here were the top selling theaters for “The Batman”:

1. AMC BURBANK LA
