Batman v Superman landed with a splash last night, taking in $27.7 million at the box office according to Warner Bros. estimates. The movie now holds the Easter weekend record for Thursday night previews, overtaking Furious 7 which grossed $15.8 million last year. It also edged out Avengers: Age Of Ultron but only slightly, beating it out $27.7m to 27.6m. The Dark Knight Rises still holds the overall record with a whopping $30.6 million.
Dawn Of Justice is projected to earn between $170 – 175 million this weekend and with its Thursday night opening is well on its way.
