The Batman continues to dominate the box office as it earns $36.8M in its third weekend… as it becomes the second highest grossing film in the pandemic era with a total of $300M

The Batman continued its domination at the domestic box office this weekend, bringing in $36.8M three weeks into its theatrical run.

The Robert Pattinson-led superhero movie is projected to gross $300.1M total by the end of day, as reported by Deadline. 

The high numbers make the Warner Bros. film is the highest grossing movie of 2022, and the second highest in the pandemic era, trailing only behind Spider-Man: No Way Home.

The Matt Reeves directed flick isn’t doing too shabby worldwide either, with a global total of $598.1 million.

Deadline did note that the film is down in viewership by about 45%, but it’s continuing to have a tight grip on the top spot regardless.

As far as the Batman franchise goes, the film’s third weekend is third-best for Warner Bros, with Dark Knight taking the top spot at $42.6M and Wonder Woman at $41.2M.

The film – which features an A-list cast including Zoë Kravitz, Paul Dano, Jeffrey Wright, John Turturro, Peter Sarsgaard, Andy Serkis, and Colin Farrell – cost an estimated $200 million to make.

Though it was predicted the movie would do well in China, it only earned $12.1 million in its first weekend.

However, about 43% of cinemas in China are still closed due to the pandemic.

Part of The Batman’s box office success was the lack of competition on the market place which has been affected by the pandemic.

The main competitor this weekend was Crunchyroll’s anime Jujutsu Kaisen 0, which took in an estimated $17.7 million in its first weekend.

The Japanese film is based on a best-selling manga about Yuta Okkotsu, a young student who becomes a sorcerer.
