Robert Pattinson starring The Batman is just around the corner with its release date planned to be on March 4, 2022.
Being a reboot of the Batman film franchise, it is directed by Matt Reeves and written by Peter Craig. The film is intended to initiate a Batman-shared universe, with two sequels planned and two spin-off television series in progress for HBO Max.
Pattinson is cast for the role of Bruce Wayne / Batman and his story is set during his second year of fighting crime. Alongside Pattinson; Zoë Kravitz, Paul Dano, Jeffrey Wright, John Turturro, Peter Sarsgaard, Andy Serkis, and Colin Farrell will grace us with their presence on big screens.
With its release date coming closer and closer, its box office projections are in! According to the sources, the projections of this upcoming franchise are in favor of the film as it is said to be a tremendous detective story, which will feature the early days of the Dark Knight, rather than being just a superhero film.
Analyzing the projections, it is found that The Batman is expected to open between $135-$185 million, making it the biggest opening of any dark knight movie. Even if the opening earning becomes less than what is predicted, it is quite clear that the film will still end up making its place in the top five Dark Knight projects of all time.
Since the introduction of the caped crusader, the character has been at the center of some of the film industry’s most remarkable moments and biggest box office impacts throughout the past four decades. Batman is inarguably one of the most valuable and reliable pop culture icons when it comes to the box office, evidenced by numerous blockbuster performances across multiple generations of moviegoers — from Tim Burton’s 1989 film to Christopher Nolan’s early 2000s trilogy and Zack Snyder’s Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice in 2016.
With all these points keeping in mind, Matt Reeves’ The Batman is poised to join the club and exhilarate the theatrical marketplace when it will make its debut just four weeks from now.
According to the estimations of Box Office Pro, ‘the 2022’s first bona fide tentpole is currently pursuing to earn between $135-$185 million domestically in its opening weekend while its lifetime box office projection currently stands between $340-$540 million domestically.’
If everything stays on track then the upcoming DC franchise will become the second movie (excluding China) to open over $100 million domestically during the covid-19 pandemic. The first movie to accomplish this target was “Spider-Man: No Way Home”.
Fans are quite enthusiastic to see the movie and now it all depends on them. The only thing we can do is wait and watch. Hopefully, the movie will not disenchant its fans and will execute as predicted.
