Batman v Superman's global box office nears $700 million -

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will soon pass a global box office haul of $700 million having ended its second weekend with $682.9 million, reports Variety.

In the US its weekend takings dropped 68% from $166 million to $52.4 million, but now has a US box office of $261.4 million.

Internationally the film took another $85.1 million from 68 territories.

"They'll be crying all the way to the bank with $700 million," Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst for ComScore told Variety.

Box office success is only half the story for Batman v Superman, however, with the film intended to set up audiences for a string of other DC Comics pictures in the coming years. How the poorly received film will affect future success is yet to be seen.

"We're extremely proud of the film and audiences have turned out in huge numbers and we're confident they will continue to do that in the weeks to come," said Jeff Goldstein, Warner Bros. distribution executive vice president.
