Box Office: “Batman v. Superman” plunges, “God’s Not Dead 2” cracks top 5


“Superman v. Batman” is falling off a table its second weekend in release. A HUGE falloff Friday, maybe a 65% plunge from its record opening.

Warners isn’t crying over it. Yet. But chances of “Deadpool” cash in the long haul are going going gone. It’ll be at just shy of $270 million by Sunday night. They’re in the black, and it is doing well overseas ($370 or so total). So Zack Snyder still is in on their A-list.

“God’s Not Dead 2,” more Christian cinema of angry victimhood, looks like an $8 million opener. With that cast and those production costs, that’s a safe bet to clean up. Will it do as well as the more upbeat “Miracles from Heaven”? No. That’s still making bank — over $50 by next weekend.

“Eye in the Sky,” the first big budget drone movie (must’ve reviewed three indie ones in the past year or two) and will crack the top ten this weekend. Barely.

“Meet the Blacks” is #8 and won’t hit $5 million.

“Allegiant” is bombing, “Zootopia” is closing in on $300 million, “Cloverfield” is hanging around and may end up in the $70s, when all is said and done. “Greek Wedding 2” is stealing millions and millions from suckers. It’s coming in #3 this weekend.
