The official box office numbers for Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice‘s opening weekend are in.
Hauling in slightly lower than late projections expected, Dawn of Justice nabbed $166.1 million at the box office domestically. Though $4 million lower than the late projections, the numbers are still gigantic, earning the DC Comics film the seventh largest opening weekend in box office history, narrowly behind by Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2‘s $169.2 million opening and ahead of The Dark Knight Rises‘ $160.9 million launch in 2012.
On Thursday and Friday, Batman v. Superman garnered an impressive $81.6 million in pre-show sales and first day showings, followed up by $50.7 million on Saturday and $33.8 million on Easter Sunday.
