BOX OFFICE: BATMAN v SUPERMAN Starts Big In China As North American Weekend Estimate Continues To Rise

Moviegoers are paying absolutely no attention to critics as Batman v Superman looks set to exceed expectations this weekend both domestically and internationally. Hit the jump for details...

Deadline reveals that Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is taking off in a big way in China. Dominating 75% of the market there, it's already earned $21.2 million, and when you take into account what the movie has so far made in countries like Mexico, Russia, and Germany, that now gives it a current international haul of $65 million. It's also worth noting that it launched at #1 in every single country it opened in yesterday. Now, early estimates in North America have risen from $150 million to the $165 million - $180 million range. It's thought that the Zack Snyder helmed release could sail past $80 million today, and it looks to continue breaking records, with the highest March opening of all-time pretty much a guarantee at this point. Moviegoers clearly don't care about reviews then, but it will be interesting to see how it fares over the next few weekend depending on which way word of mouth swings. Either way, the next couple of days are going to be very interesting for Batman v Superman...
