"Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" slowed down considerably as it began its second weekend at the domestic box office, but still had plenty in the tank to cruise to another victory.

The DC Comics superhero epic starring Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill delivered $15 million on Friday and is heading for more than $50 million over the three days for Warner Bros. That would be a roughly 70 percent dropoff from its total last weekend, which included Thursday night previews and the Easter Sunday holiday.

Disney Animation's "Zootopia" will be a distant second with around $20 million in its fifth weekend, after bringing in an estimated $5.6 million Friday. "God's Not Dead 2" took in $2.8 million on its first day in release and is looking at $8.4 million, a little under projections, over the three days for Pure Flix Entertainment.

It is leading another faith-based film, Sony's "Miracles From Heaven," for fourth after the Jennifer Garner drama added another $2.1 million in on Friday, which projects to a $7.5 million third weekend.
