Fans and critics alike are having mixed responses to Batman: The Killing Joke, but that didnâ€™t stop it from becoming Fathomâ€™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.
