'Batman V Superman' Final Box Office Tally Revised Down To $166.1 Million

Final box-office figures took a little wind out of the sails of "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice."

Warner Bros. on Monday revised down the film's weekend gross by $4 million, lowering it from the Sunday estimate of $170.1 million to $166.1 million. Such corrections are common, though the difference for "Batman v Superman" was slightly more than normal and had an effect on the film's place in the record books.

The movie's Easter weekend debut now drops a notch on the biggest North America openings ever list to seventh, sliding in behind "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2." That film's $169.2 million opening also retakes its place as Warner Bros.' top debut.

It's nevertheless a massive launch for "Batman v Superman," which set a record for biggest pre-summer debut despite withering reviews. It made an additional $254 million internationally.

Debuting 14 years after the hit original, Universal's "My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2" performed above expectations over the weekend, opening with $17.9 million.
