    LOL. There, I said to myself I would laugh if The Boss beat BvS this weekend, and it did. And with Disney's The Jungle Book opening next weekend, the fat lady is warming up to start singing for BvS.

    That's really close on the estimates to be calling it like that. $23.48m vs. $23.44m. $40k dollars? Yeah, not something I'd confidently declare, even with the other estimates that have The Boss closer to $24m.. Actuals could show BvS ahead. Or The Boss could come out even more dominant. That being said, I'm not a box office analyst, so I guess I'll just go with CBR and Deadline.

    Hey lets not mention Batman V superman passed deadpool, is at 784 million worldwide or only had a 50 percent drop. Lets talk about how comedy starting a big box office star barely passed it in the third week. Sigh.

    It had a 54% drop domestically.

    EDIT: Internationally (non-US & Canda) it had a 60% drop weekend to weekend:

    Its looking at over 800 million in a day or two worldwide. It just cleaned up again in the international box office its over 500 million there. Yet this is what they want to write? The boss is a comedy, it stars the biggest female comic on the planet, and bvs is in its third weekend.

    Is Melissa McCarthy considered a big box office star now?

    Rocky beat the ten count against Apollo by one second and that was enough to become world champion. The Boss won, so that's what counts in the discussion.

    Oh brother. Why? it passed MOS for domestic box office total in 3 weeks. Its at 784 million worldwide. It passed deadpool for biggest superhero movie of the year. But this is what they cbr chooses to write.
