During its preview debut on Thursday, Batman v Superman made $27.7 million at the domestic box office - beating out Age of Ultron which pulled in $27.6 million last year. It also beat The Dark Night, which made $18.5 million during its preview screenings. The all-time record for Thursday night screenings still goes to Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which commanded a huge $57 million during its Thursday night screening.

 

Batman v Superman is still aiming at around $160 million for its opening weekend, even through a sea of negative reviews. It's already scooped up $7 million overseas, as it is flooding international markets. I've seen it and simply wasn't a fan - even after enjoying Man of Steel - seeing it a second time with the disappointment behind me had a more enjoyable feel - but it is definitely very messy with its editing, and its characters are constantly in impossible situations - which feels super forced. The last third of the movie however, is pretty much directly out of the comic book - which is awesome.
