No surprise, “The Batman” soared to the top spot this weekend at the box office behind a $128.5 million domestic debut (another $120 million international). This was the second-highest debut of the pandemic, only behind “Spider-Man: No Way Home” ($260 mil), and the fourth-highest opening for a Batman movie ever. “The Dark Knight” ($158 million), “The Dark Knight Rises” ($160 million), and “Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice” ($166 million) all opened higher than “The Batman.”
Coming in behind “The Batman” was “Uncharted,” which officially crossed the $100 million mark domestically, scoring $11 million (-52.2%) in its third weekend. The film has made another $171 million overseas, bringing its worldwide total to $271,576,384. “Dog” made another $6 million (-40.6%)
There isn’t much else to speak about this weekend, “After Yang” was released in just 24 theaters and made $46,872. It was a slow weekend and that will likely continue to be the case in the coming weeks as March is void of any major wide releases until March 25 when “The Lost City,” starring Channing Tatum, Sandra Bullock, and Brad Pitt comes out. On the streaming side, “Fresh” just came out on Hulu, and the second Ryan Reynolds-Shawn Levy collaboration (after “Free Guy”), “The Adam Project,” hits Netflix on March 11.
