Warner Bros. better hope that Justice League has box office legs.
DC’s superhero team up film, which released Friday, opened to an underwhelming $96 Million in the United States. This is a part of a downward spiral for Warner Bros.; Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice brought in $166 Million in its first weekend, whereas Suicide Squad snagged $135 Million. Wonder Woman, which is well renowned to both fans and critics, totalled $103 Million in its opening weekend. Justice League making less than that shows the audiences’ lack of interest in the DC Extended Universe.
Globally, Justice League hasn’t faltered too much. As of right now, the motion picture has totalled $281.5 Million. There will definitely be repeat viewings over the next few weekends due to the sheer popularity of the source material, but will it be enough to generate Warner Bros. a significant profit? Only time will tell at this point.
Justice League holds an unimpressive 39 percent on Rotten Tomatoes. However, with an audience score of 85 percent, the fans and critics definitely disagree a bit here.
