Justice League Has DCEU's Lowest-Grossing Opening

Justice League

-DC's costly "Justice League" has dominated the North American box office but fallen well short of expectations with a $96 million opening weekend at 4,051 locations. But you may be asking, how is nearly $100 million a disappointment? It's also following Zack Snyder's 2013 Man of Steel, last year's Batman v Superman and this year's Wonder Woman, all of which opened over $100 million. But that's the situation Warner Bros. and DC's "Justice League" find themselves in. Clearly that didn't happen.

In today's world, where superhero blockbusters keep the lights on at all the studios in Hollywood, an anticipated release like "Justice League" - powered with the iconic characters Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, The Flash, Aquaman, and Cyborg - not being able to crack $100 million is a shocking result that could lead to dramatic changes in the franchise. The film Zack Snyder started production on in April 2016 already had some shifts made to the initial plan, then after his assembly cut didn't land as expected, Joss Whedon was brought in to punch up the dialogue, and once Snyder stepped down under tragic circumstances The Avengers director took over completely.

Kenya Supreme court upholds kenyatta win
The election went ahead and Kenyatta won by a landslide, though voting did not take place in a number of opposition districts. Already, opposition supporters have trooped to the streets to protest against the Supreme Court's decision.

But it would be a mistake to dismiss Justice League as just more of the same. The modestly budgeted Lionsgate release had been pegged for an opening in the ballpark of $10 million. Suicide Squad opened with $133 million. It's also not in the same, ahem, league as Disney and Marvel's The Avengers ($207.4 million) and Avengers: Age of Ultron ($191.3 million). The investment was hefty, but so was the return. And yes, that's possible, but there are a few factors that point to a lack of longevity at the box office here. After that, there are no major films standing in between Justice League and Star Wars: The Last Jedi on December 15th.

"This movie works", Atchity responded. The polling sample is only those seeing the movie on opening night, so it's less a general audience score and more an indication of how well the film played with those it directly targeted in marketing. Ten other Asian markets added another $41.2 mill. and Latin America brought in $35.4 mill. showing that overseas markets are still more dependable for a movie making back its money. Let's celebrate this fun Justice League movie by highlighting some of the funniest moments in no particular order. "Given the extremely lucrative Thanksgiving week, we have a chance to hold audiences and come in at a good level".

Harry Styles has been reported as her replacement. "Love my VS family, and will be with all my girls in spirit!" the model wrote. Harry Styles will perform at the Victoria's Secret fashion show in China tomorrow (November 20), it has been announced.

That was a huge blow to the domestic box office of "Justice League". Imax chief bizdev officer Rob Lister told Variety this summer that the company would likely be able to crunch the numbers on this experiment by the end of the year, and at that point figure out whether it would be ready for a much more aggressive worldwide roll-out. The same fate might await Justice League, too. As it turns out, reviews for the superhero team-up were once again mixed-negative, so that may have deterred some folks from seeking the film out.
