The Batman Opens in China to Disappointing Numbers fetchpriority=

"The Batman" debuted here in the United States on March 4 to an opening of $134 million, but in China, it's not going as well.

As of today, ticket sales have only rung in at about $3.6 million. There are a few factors at play, including COVID flare-ups that are closing theatres again. The country is experiencing its biggest uptick of the virus since the pandemic began, closing about 30% of movie theatres. The three-hour run time is also said to be a bit of a deterrent; however interest in the film appears to be great.

"The Batman" will also be streaming on HBO Max late next month.
