Warner Bros. reports this morning that Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice easily led the way again on Friday as expected. DC's superhero showdown was off a sharp 81 percent from opening day last week to $15.35 million yesterday, giving the film an overall eight-day domestic haul of $224.42 million. By comparison, the movie is now tracking 24 percent ahead of the pace of Man of Steel, 3 percent behind Iron Man 3, 7.5 percent behind The Dark Knight Rises, and 13 percent behind Avengers: Age of Ultron. BoxOffice is projecting a sophomore weekend tally around $48.5 million.

In second place, Disney's Zootopia added another $5.58 million yesterday as it dropped 41.5 percent from Good Friday last week. With a domestic cume of $261.5 million now, the smash hit animated film continues to enjoy excellent legs as it paces ahead of 2014's The LEGO Movie. We're projecting a $19.5 million weekend.

My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 took third yesterday with $3.42 million, off 53 percent from opening day last week. The rom-com sequel has tallied $28.8 million through eight days of play as it looks toward an $11.3 million second frame.

Meanwhile, God's Not Dead 2 bowed to $2.95 million yesterday. Unfortunately, the sequel to 2014's faith-based sleeper hit proved somewhat front-loaded on Thursday evening and will fall short of our initial expectations. Look for an opening weekend around $8.5 million, which still dwarfs the pic's low production budget of $2 million.

Miracles from Heaven filled out the top five with $2.15 million on Friday, off 35 percent from the same day last week. With a $41.4 million total so far, Sony's latest Christian-themed success is eyeing a weekend figure of $7.2 million.

Last but not least, Meet the Blacks bowed to $1.43 million on Friday, about 36 percent lower than the opening day of Fifty Shades of Black earlier this year. Opening weekend should land around $4.1 million.
