Fans and critics alike are having mixed responses to Batman: The Killing Joke, but that didn’t stop it from becoming Fathom’s biggest event ever.

The film played in 1,325 theaters on Monday, the widest release ever for Fathom. It took in $3.2 million, good for a per-theater average of $2,396 (to put that in perspective, Star Trek Beyond averaged $1,592 from 3,928 theaters).

After making $600,000 on Tuesday, plus an additional $400k from foreign territories, The Killing Joke finished its brief theatrical run with $4.2 million, against a reported budget of $3.5 million.

It may have people divided, praising the voice acting but criticizing pretty much everything about Batgirl, but The Killing Joke was a financial success for Warner Bros. and if you missed it in theaters you can check it out for yourself now on VOD or DVD/Blu-ray on August 2.
