Those hoping Batman V Superman will flop just got another setback.
In addition to stellar reactions from the NYC premiere and IMAX fan screenings this week, Fandango revealed via The Wrap that Batman V Superman is the highest pre-sold superhero ever on the site:
â€œBatman v Superman: Dawn of Justiceâ€ is Fandangoâ€™s top pre-selling superhero film ever, beating previous record holders, â€œThe Dark Knight Risesâ€ and â€œAvengers: Age of Ultron.â€
According to Fandango, â€œBatman v Supermanâ€ represented more than 90 percent of the companyâ€™s ticket sales for the weekend.
With the movie opening worldwide this weekend as well, including lucrative China, it’s very possible that it could hit a $300 million worldwide opening and come in right behind Fast 7 for the second-highest non-summer opening.
