The Batman has outperformed all expectations and has debuted with $134 million at the domestic box office.
The Batman starring Robert Pattinson had grossed $134 million in its domestic box office debut to secure the second-best opening of the pandemic era behind Marvel’s Spider-Man: No Way Home. It’s also the biggest opening for a Matt Revees film.
The movie was expected to open with an estimated $128.5 million on its opening weekend, but the traffic for the movie on Sunday was a lot better than expected, pushing the weekend collection higher.
The Batman has opened in most markets worldwide although its release in Russia was paused due to the Russia-Ukraine war. The movie is expected to be released in China on March 14.
With an A- from Cinemascore, mostly strong reviews (85% and 7.7/10 from Rotten Tomatoes), and three weeks of absolutely no new competition, the movie is expected to perform well in the box office worldwide.
The Batman is playing in movie theaters everywhere, introducing Pattinson as the newest incarnation of the World’s Greatest Detective which was co-written and directed by Matt Reeves.
