Johannesburg - Warner Bros. Pictures’ action adventure Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice took the South African box office by storm on its opening weekend, earning more than R16m from 137 screens in South Africa, with no signs of slowing down.  

This makes Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice the biggest Warner Bros. opening of all time in South Africa, the biggest March opener of all time and the second biggest 3-day opening weekend (Friday – Sunday) behind Fast & Furious 7.

Opening virtually day-and-date across the globe, director Zack Snyder’s highly anticipated follow-up to Man of Steel brings Batman and Superman together on the big screen for the first time in history, and is the very first feature film appearance of Wonder Woman, the third Super Hero in DC Comics’ iconic Trinity.  

Sue Dickinson, Warner Bros. Marketing Manager at Times Media Films said: "Anticipation for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice has been building across South Africa and these incredible results are a testament to not only the enduring appeal of these global icons but the power of the epic cinematic showdown Zack Snyder and his brilliant cast and crew have delivered. We couldn’t be more thrilled with the film’s incredible debut and strong word-of-mouth and repeat business promises to propel its success well into the season."
