Warner Bros’ moody superhero comic book action adventure “The Batman” bolsters its position further in domestic box office with a $66 million grossing over the second weekend after release. Following only 10 days in the big screen, the film has tallied a whacking $238.5 million in the domestic box office with international earnings totalled to a whooping $463.2 million. Twilight-star Robert Pattinson’s “The Batman,” in tandem, already became the highest grossing film of 2022, while it ranks as the second-highest grossing film since the onset pandemic outbreak so far, behind the Benedict Cumberbatch-starred billion-dollar epic “Spider-Man: No Way Home” which had generated a meteoric $792 million in North American box office.
“The Batman” holds forth with strong ticket sales over second weekend
On top of that, “The Batman” appears to be have a better hold than many comic book tentpoles considering a pandemic-era new normalcy, as the film’s ticket sales dipped by 41 per cent compared to opening weekend, while other pandemic-era top releases like of “The Suicide Squad,” “Black Widow,” “Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings” alongside Eternals, indented between 53 per cent and 71 per cent.
Aside from that, the latest Batman’s ventures into Gotham City’s underworld, that had had a budget of around $185 to $200 million, received a raft of positive ratings with Rotten Tomatoes rated the movie at 85 per cent.
Besides, CinemaScore graded the film at “A,” far from a near-perfect, but could still be contemplated as a decent result, suggested industry analysts. If truth is to be spoken, PG-13 rated Matt Reeves’ “The Batman” has been a much-required smash for the domestic box office after a distinctively quiet January and February, as at a distant second place, Sony’s “Uncharted” racked up a $9.2 million from 3,725 North American theatres over the weekend.
