Robert Pattinson’s the batter had an impressive debut at the domestic box office on its opening day.
The highly anticipated new DC Comics movie the batter finally opened in cinemas yesterday. The film, starring Robert Pattinson as the titular Caped Crusader, earned an impressive $57 million on Friday, with an expected total of about $120 million for three days on Sunday — a number slightly above previous expectations.
The box office success of the batter is also notable, as all Warner Bros. releases. Pictures in 2021 Day-and-Date were also available for free on HBO Max while also playing in theaters. This marks the studio’s first major release in 2022, with the film debuting exclusively in theaters first, with expected availability on HBO Max approximately 45 days after its theatrical debut.
The Batmans box office performance so far is quite impressive, considering that the character’s reputation has been mixed among the public in recent years. A decade after the end of Christopher Nolan’s critically acclaimed dark knight trilogy, the Caped Crusader was featured in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League to a less than stellar response from critics and audiences alike. Also the fact that the film is almost 3 hours long and is considerably darker than the more family-friendly ones Spider-Man: No Way Home is an impressive achievement.
The impressive box office screened so far bodes well for both director Matt Reeves and star Robert Pattinson. The duo, along with many of the expected returning cast members, hope to develop at least two more theatrical films in a trilogy, along with a slew of new spin-off series on HBO Max.
Here is the synopsis for Robert Pattinson’s The batter:
Sneaking through the streets for two years as Batman (Robert Pattinson), terrifying the hearts of criminals, has brought Bruce Wayne deep into the shadows of Gotham City. With only a few trusted allies—Alfred Pennyworth (Andy Serkis), Lieutenant James Gordon (Jeffrey Wright)—in the town’s corrupt network of officials and high-profile figures, the lone vigilante has established itself as the only embodiment of revenge among its fellow citizens. .
When a killer attacks Gotham’s elite with a series of sadistic machinations, a trail of cryptic clues sends the world’s greatest detective on an investigation into the underworld, where he encounters characters such as Selina Kyle/aka Catwoman (Zoë Kravitz), Oswald Cobblepot/ aka the Penguin (Colin Farrell), Carmine Falcone (John Turturro) and Edward Nashton/aka the Riddler (Paul Dano). As the evidence grows closer to home and the scale of the perpetrator’s plans becomes clear, Batman must renew relationships, expose the perpetrator and bring justice for the abuses of power and corruption that have long plagued Gotham City.
directed by Matt Reeves, the batter stars Robert Pattinson as the titular hero, Zoe Kravitz as Catwoman, Paul Dano as the Riddler, Jeffrey Wright as James Gordon, John Turturro as Carmine Falcone, Peter Sarsgaard as Gil Colson, Jayme Lawson as Bella Reál, with Andy Serkis as Alfred Pennyworth, and Colin Farrell as the penguin.
