Warner Bros. has announced that “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” is passing the $700 million mark in worldwide box office on Tuesday.
The studio said the tentpole pulled in $14.3 million on Monday for a worldwide total of $698 million — $263.7 million domestically and another $434 million internationally.
“Batman v Superman” took in most of its North American gross in its opening weekend with $166 million, followed by a 69% drop to $51.3 million. It’s facing competition this upcoming weekend from the opening of Melissa McCarthy’s “The Boss,” which will probably take in about $21 million.

“Batman v Superman” will probably hold on to the top slot for the third consecutive weekend with about $25 million in the U.S. The film has taken in $86 million in its first 10 days in China, coming in third in its second weekend with $12.6 million — a 78% decline.
With the film running out of steam, it now appears that “Batman v Superman” might not make it to the $1 billion global milestone. Warner Bros. paid $250 million to make the movie, hoping it would set the stage for a series of sequels and spinoffs featuring DC Comics superheroes such as the Flash, Wonder Woman and Aquaman.
