Word of mouth and eye-watering reviews seem to be catching up with WB's Batman V Superman, which raked in $4.5 million on 292 screens but dropped sixty-five percent in its second week.  

The Zack Snyder-directed superhero smackdown has now made $22.6 million overall.

In sharp contrast, Disney's Zootopia dropped a mere one percent in its third week for a weekend BO of $3.1 million and an overall cume of $14.5 million off 301 screens.

Zootopia was the sole original in the top five, beating third-place getter My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2, which took $2.7 million in its second weekend to bring its total to over $9 million.

Fox's well-reviewed Kung Fu Panda 3 dropped twenty-seven percent in week two to ring up $1.8 million, for a cume of $6.3 million on 280 screens.

Roadshow's London Has Fallen, starring Gerard Butler, has made $4.9 million after three weeks, while Sony's The Lady in the Van has made $8.6 million after five.

Those films dropped thirty-two percent and thirty-three percent over the weekend respectively, as did Deadpool, which is still on 154 screens after eight weeks and has now made $42.6 million at the local BO.

eOne's Eye in the Sky, the drone thriller starring Helen Mirren and Aaron Paul, dropped a mere nine percent in its second week off the back of effusive word of mouth, pulling in $300,356 on 46 screens for overall takings of $847,227.

Next best was Paramount's 10 Cloverfield Lane, which is sitting on $3.8 million after four weeks.

The top ten was rounded out by Simon Stone's The Daughter, which dropped thirty-three percent in week three to make $153,708 on 61 screens.

The Roadshow release has now made over $1.2 million.

Debuting a few spots below Stone's film was Sherpa, directed by Solo's Jennifer Peedom. 

Transmission's doc debuted on 30 screens and averaged $4,000 per location, for first-week takings of $171,150.
