Action comedy sequel, “Assassination Classroom: Graduation,” beat ‘Batman v Superman’ and debuted atop the Japanese box office. It did this despite the fact that Batman v Superman : Yawn of Injustice opened on twice as many screens and has had a worldwide marketing campaign with about $200 million dollars behind it. Yawn of Injustice did not even take the number two spot !!!
I don´t know shit from shinola about this comedy, but now i kind of want to see it. Because after the dark, gloomy , boring BvS which had about as much laughs as fucking Schindler’s List did, I could really use a good laugh. Spoiler Warning : I will now go on to tear BvS a new ass . Again.
This steaming pile of shit made $420 million in its opening weekend ( Wed-Sun ). And Warner Brothers will take a little over half of that i guess, with the rest going to the cinemas. So they get let’s say $220 million. Great for them right. Only the spent $250 million on making it ( rumored to be a lot more ). And the marketing is EASILY another 200 million. And I don´t see where that money is gonna come from now.
According to FORBES , Batman v Superman broke one record this weekend. A record for the largest drop in attendance from Friday to Sunday for any superhero movie. Those poor schmucks who saw it Wed-Fri had already paid for their tickets
If they had not opened in China , where films usually open weeks after the U.S , they would be at 12th place behind Spider Man 3 as far as worldwide openings. Now it sits at number 4
But the drop off on the BO will be huge. Word of mouth will kill it.And WB has no more major markets to open in . It has nowhere to go but down.
Anyone claiming that this movie has anything of merit is in some sort of state of denial. Much like Transformers fans were after being raped by Michael Bay, the DC fans cannot bring themselves to fully admit how shitty this movie was. They try consoling themselves by mentioning movies from the rival company , movies they have never liked anyway. Hell Im a fan of Ultron the character, and I was pissed about them changing who created him. I was even pissed that the AGE of Ultron was over and done with in one film, But JESUS TAP DANCING CHRIST, at least Marvel didn’t fuck him over as royally as Warner Brothers did with Doomsday !!! At least Ultron got an entire film. Doomsday got 15min !!!
And Im fucking glad he killed Superman ! Because this guy was a fucking prick !! They seriously go from one scene of him killing a guy, to another scene of him watching news about Batman taking out sex traffickers and child molesters and we as an audience are supposed to belive he has the moral high ground HOW ? Why the fuck is he mad at Batman ? If he himself, the character , had at least TRIED to explain it. Just ONCE ! Now I know the fucker comes back. They even reveal that with the last frame of the movie, making his “sacrifice” worthless anyway. But I would like him to stay dead. He is about as super as Saddam Hussein !! Zack Snyder is a fucking HACK !!!
