LOS ANGELES (AP) — "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" showed some signs of weakness in its second weekend in theaters with a dramatic 69 percent drop from its debut last week. The superhero pic still easily took first place with $51.3 million, which bumped its domestic total to $260.4 million.

Holdovers "Zootopia" and "My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2" trailed far behind in second and third place with $19.3 million and $11.2 million respectively.

Among the few modest new openers, the faith-based "God's Not Dead 2" was the only one to crack the top five, opening in fourth place with $7.6 million. It was just slightly more than "Miracles From Heaven" which took fifth place in its third weekend in theaters with $7.3 million.
