There is huge pressure on Batman V Superman to improve its performance at the global box office this weekend.

It had a strong opening weekend, but the box office takings dropped by 68 percent in week two. 

The film has passed US$700 million at the global box office, but it now looks uncertain whether it will reach the US$1 billion that Warner Brothers had been hoping for.

It has made a lot of money, but once you deduct the costs Warner Brothers will not make as big a profit as it had expected.

The studio is now reportedly rethinking its strategy for its upcoming movies.
