This is an impressively strong start, even more so when you consider the film’s near three hour running time.

The film’s opening weekend haul represents Warner Bros’ best international opening since the start of the pandemic.

Further proof that people are willing to embrace the theatrical experience for films like this.

While it is yet open theatrically in China, the world’s largest theatrical market will surely help boost the film’s strong start at the box office.

The film is set to be released in China on March 18.

With that still to come, WB will surely be hoping that the film crosses the $1billion mark in the coming weeks.

Directed by Matt Reeves, The Batman stars Robert Pattinson as a Bruce Wayne early in his tenure as Batman who must use his skills as a detective to figure out a series of brutal murders.

The film also stars  Zoë Kravitz, Paul Dano, Jeffrey Wright, Colin Farrell and Andy Serkis.
