Batman v Superman Brings in $27.7 On Thursday Opening

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice officially opens today, but the movie arrived in theaters yesterday with early Thursday night screenings held nationwide led the movie to gross $27.7 million.  (In comparison, Star Wars: Episode VII did $57 million). With the momentum rolling, BvS is expected to rake in around $150 million dollars this weekend.  As discussed on The BooneCast, internal rumblings are stating if this does not make around $800 million worldwide, the movie would be seen as a disappointment since it houses two of Warner Bros.’ most lucrative properties. The critical response so far have been very mixed with most reviews leaning towards an unsatisfactory reception.  Only this weekend will tell if the audiences (and box office) will not be swayed by the negative responses.  Let us know on Twitter (@theboonedotcom) if you think it will break $150 million!

April 3rd is going to be huge.  (And as I write this it is killing me to know I am going to miss this huge reveal live because I’ll be at ATT Stadium for Wrestlemania…) We will finally get to see what is quite possibly the debut of TV’s new greatest villain of all time… Negan.  With a preview for the Season Finale released in the Netherlands, we get to see a little bit of Jeffrey Dean Morgan’s portrayal of Negan (along with Lucille) which will disrupt everything we have ever came to know of The Walking Dead.

Deadpool Captures $260 Million Global Opening

In what looks to be a record setting weekend for an R-Rated film, Deadpool is a guaranteed blockbuster.  After opening up to a $260 million global opening, Deadpool is on track to becoming the highest ever grossing R-Rated film of all time.  The $135 million domestic haul already surpasses every single X-Men opening weekend (X-Men: The Last Stand had $103m opening). If there was ever an under-dog story, then this film is it.  Tim Miller’s Deadpool was a movie that was stuck in the pre-production rut for years.   The fans wanted it, but Fox never wanted to take the gamble on the character after a poor showing in X-Men Origins: Wolverine.  Ryan Reynolds was adamant about playing Deadpool, a role he was born for, and would constantly petition the fans to speak up on social media for the chance to make the film.  Fox finally had their hand forced after leaked test footage became an instant viral sensation in the summer of 2014. The rest is history....
