The Batman Dominates the Box Office, Jujutsu Kaisen 0 Has Strong Debut


Matt Reeves’ The Batman continues to obliterate the box office. This weekend, the superhero epic earned another $36.8 million (-45%) to raise its domestic total to $300.1 million, per Deadline. That number ranks behind the third weekends of The Dark Knight ($42.6 million) and Wonder Woman ($41.2 million), which leaves Reeves’ film just $31M shy of Zack Snyder’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’s domestic gross ($330.3 million).

Taking second place was the anime prequel Jujutsu Kaisen 0. Crunchyroll’s release took in $17.7 million in its first week, which is made all the more impressive that it was only playing in 2,297 theaters, less than the rest of the top 6.

Elsewhere, the A24 horror film X opened with a 3-day take of $4.4 million from 2,865 screens. That number is lower than A24’s The Green Knight ($6.7 million) but ahead of Zola ($1.2 million).

Finally, Sony’s Uncharted reached $125.8 million domestically this weekend after earning another $8 million in its fifth week of release. Globally, the video game adaptation has accrued $337.3 million.
