'Batman v Superman' Needs $800M To Break Even, But Reviews Are Rotten
Studios bet big on blockbusters, but unlike "Star Wars: The Force Awakens," "Dawn of Justice" might have a big problem: Early reviews aren't great.By Jamal Andress | March 23, 2016
It's one of the most anticipated films of 2016, and so far, it's also the most expensive.
The studio hasn't officially released the budget for "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice," but early estimates say the studio spent $250 million to produce the film and more than $150 million on marketing.
To really make this whole multimillion-dollar venture worth it, Variety reports the caped crusaders needs to bring in at least $800 million. In fact, the outlet quotes a media analyst who says "anything under $1 billion in worldwide box office will be a disappointment."
