The Batman has once again won the domestic weekend box office with ticket sales of $66 million. Internationally, it added another $66.6 million to help make its global total reach $463.2 million.
As reported by Variety, The Batman saw a 41% decline from its opening weekend, which is a strong number when compared to other comic book films, including The Suicide Squad, Eternals, Black Widow, and Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings. Those films and others like it usually fall in the 53%-71% range.
The Batman is the highest-grossing movie of 2022 and the second-highest grossing movie in the pandemic era behind Spider-Man: No Way Home’s $792 million domestic performance.
Speaking of Spider-Man: No Way Home, it placed #5 with $4.07 million and extended its streak in the top five at the domestic weekend box office to 13 weeks.
The Tom Holland-led Uncharted film placed second with $9.2 million, bringing its domestic total to $113 million. Globally, Uncharted is nearing $300 million.
In a rarity for a live cinema event, the concert film BTS Permission to Dance on Stage: Seoul placed third with $7 million in ticket sales. Considering it only played in around 800 theaters compared to The Batman’s 4,417 North American screens, that is a great performance. Channing Tatum’s Dog landed at #4 with $5.3 million.
In our The Batman review, we said, “Matt Reeves’ violent, thrilling, darkly beautiful take on The Batman more than justifies its place in the franchise’s canon.”
