Warner Bros. superhero team-up film Justice League (JL) run at the box office is expected to end at around $675 million. However, the film’s $219.3m collections in 31 days is much lesser than the earning of Star Wars: The Last Jedi’s opening weekend total. The Last Jedi, which released Friday, made $220m in its opening weekend.
Justice League, which released in November this year, opened up to a lot of criticism. Critics were harsh in criticizing the film. Justice League could not earn as expected at the domestic box office even though it fared well overseas, especially in China. The reason for the film’s failure is being blamed mainly on the creative differences between Warner Bros. and Zack Snyder.
The negative reviews not only led to a poor performance at the box office but also led to Warner Bros. decision to restructure DC films’ brand.
In spite of Justice League’s more than average performance at the global level, its’ domestic performance is less than satisfactory. The film only managed to collect $219.3m at the domestic box office in one month. In contrast, Star Wars: The Last Jedi grossed $220m at the domestic box office on its opening weekend itself.
However, Justice League managed to make $4.17 million on its fifth weekend in spite of receiving tough competition from The Last Jedi. JL is meanwhile looking at a total of over/under $240m total on the domestic front.
Justice League stars Ben Affleck as Batman, Henry Cavill as Superman, Ezra Miller as The Flash, Jason Momoa as AquamanGal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Amber Heard as Mera, Ray Fisher as Cyborg, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Willem Dafoe as Vulko, J.K.
