With Warner Bros./DC’s Justice League all set to hit the theaters next month, early tracking suggests that the film will have a grand opening of around $110M-$120M in the U.S. and Canada alone.
Industry experts predict an opening of upto $120M in USA and Canada, as per Deadline. Even though Thor: Ragnarok will take a little of its projection, Justice League will have undivided attention from the audience once Thor 3 is out of the way.
Justice League, featuring all the superheroes together under one grand film could have the highest grossing opening weekends at the box office in 2017, putting it ahead of Wonder Woman which made $103 million in June on its opening weekend.
Though expectations are sky high for Justice League, it is unlikely to cross the opening weekend figure of Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice released last year. The film made $166 million on its opening weekend. Similarly, Suicide Squad surprised industry experts by reaping in $133 million in the first week.
The trick now is that if this ambitious superhero team film is somehow able to avoid negative reviews, it can maintain its stand in the second weekend.
Throwing more light into the tracking numbers, senior media analyst at comScore, Paul Dergarabedian said, “The highlighted presence of Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman makes a $100 million debut reasonable. The sheer ‘must-see’ factor, given the ensemble cast of iconic characters, is undeniable, and much like Batman v Superman, the concept of the movie and the cast transcends any mixed sentiments regarding the film that may be out there in the pre-release window.”
Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman and Jason Momoa as Aquaman are what moviegoers are looking forward to see in Justice League, according to Fandango polls. While eighty-six percent are looking forward to see Wonder Woman again, 89% view themselves as DC fans.
Justice League will hit the theaters on November 17, 2017. The film stars Ben Affleck as Batman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Momoa as Aquaman, Henry Cavill as Superman, Ezra Miller as The Flash, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Simmons as Commissioner Gordon, Jason Amber Heard as Mera, Ray Fisher as Cyborg, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Willem Dafoe as Vulko, J.K. Jeremy Irons as Alfred Pennyworth, Diane Lane as Martha Kent, and Connie Nielsen as Queen Hippolyta.
