Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice ($166 million)
Zack Synder’s controversial follow-up to the Man of Steel witnessed a massive opening weekend back in 2016. Batman V Superman was controversial after the casting of Ben Affleck as Batman. Though the initial teaser of the film was widely praised by fans for the clash between DC’s heroes, the subsequent trailers were criticized for spoiling too much of the movie.
The appearance of Doomsday, Wonder Woman and the team up between DC’s Holy Trinity were the elements for marketing of the movie before it was released. Despite plenty of issues, the movie still managed to have a great opening weekend.
