The Batman, a Warner Bros./DC film, has just recently started to gain traction broad, with a current international box office total of $5.3 million after only two days and from only eight nations. The film, helmed by Matt Reeves and starring Robert Pattinson, is reaching out to 47 new countries today and another 19 on Friday.
Following its $1.7 million Korean premieres on Tuesday, and making the most use of a public holiday here, it scored Warner Bros.’ highest launch day during the epidemic, the second-biggest opening for a Batman movie since The Dark Knight Rises, and an industry-leading total for 2022 so far.
The Batman keeps blossoming out on Wednesday, with France commencing at $1.4 million. The market total, including previews, is $2.1 million, making it the greatest opening of the year and the highest pandemic opening for a Warner Bros. picture in the country. The numbers are comparable to those of The Dark Knight and much better than Dune (+42 percent) and Aquaman (+72 percent).
The Batman made $414K in Sweden on its first day. This is a 28 percent increase over The Dark Knight and more than twice Dune’s opening day earnings.
On Wednesday, Indonesian audiences handed The Batman a 91% market share with $362K, making it the greatest Batman launch ever and the best of the coronavirus outbreak years for Warner Bros.
Belgium delivered $193K to Gotham, with PLFs accounting for 42% of opening day revenue. The results are similar to The Dark Knight and 42% higher than Dune.
For a picture that has been eagerly awaited, the overall figures are positive heading into the weekend. The covid outbreak is still a worrisome barrier in Western Australia and the eastern region of the territory, where flooding is a major issue.
We’ll have a better view once the weekend arrives, like always.
