While Batman v Superman remained at the top of the box office this weekend, it suffered a huge drop-off from last week’s opening.
BvS made another $52.3 million, which is a 68.4% drop-off from last week, the fifth highest drop in history and a worse drop than last year’s disaster, Fantastic Four. BvS is a little more well received than Fantastic Four and it’s made over $680 million worldwide but if the drop off continues, it will be hard to reach the $1 billion mark Warner Bros was desperate to get.
Zootopia remained in second place with $20 million, bringing it to over $275 million and it’s made over $787 million worldwide, making it the second highest grossing Disney Animation Studios film behind Frozen.
My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 remained in it’s slot at third as well with another $11 million, putting it at $36 million for it’s two weeks out, which is not great considering the original was doing better in less than half the theaters.
God’s Not Dead 2 was the best performing of the two new releases, although it made less than it’s predecessor by $1 million with $8 million. Fellow Christian focused film Miracles from Heaven rounded out the top 5 with $7.5 million.
The other new release, Meet the Blacks, made $4.1 million in just over 1,000 theaters, less than most of the similiar parody movies from the Wayans Brothers, like A Haunted House and the recent Fifty Shades of Black, although they were in double the amount of theaters.
Eye in the Sky moved into full release over the weekend and moved into the top 10 at ninth place with $4 million and it’s made $6.2 million for it’s four weeks out.
