Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice dominated the box office this weekend with a $166 million opening. This was a record weekend opening for March. It is also the best opening for a DC Comics film. The film has also made $420 million worldwide. This is the 4th biggest global opening of all time.

Moviegoers to Batman v. Superman ignored the negative reviews as they stormed theaters. The film has a dismal 28% score on Rotten Tomatoes. It has a B CinemaScore.

Batman v. Superman was followed by Zootopia, which has now made $240 million after just four weekends in theaters. It was followed by My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2, which had a solid third place opening and made $17.8 million. The comedy has an A- CinemaScore.

Miracles from Heaven finished fourth and added $9.6 million during its second weekend in theaters. The Divergent Series: Allegiant continued its weaker than expected path. It made just $9.4 million during its second weekend and fell over 67% from its opening weekend.

Allegiant was followed by 10 Cloverfield Lane, Deadpool, London Has Fallen and Hello, My Name is Doris. You can view the complete box office report for the weekend here.
