Final Easter weekend figures have dropped the new superhero movie below the estimated $170 million (GBP119 million) mark, but at $166.1 million (GBP116.5 million) the film has still outgrossed the openings of all previous Batman and Superman blockbusters.

Unfortunately, Variety's official opening figure means Batman v Superman is no longer the sixth biggest film ever to open in the U.S. and it drops behind Harry Potter & the Deathly Hallows Part 2 for seventh place on the movie debut list.
