According to critics and trade analysts, DCEU’s upcoming ambitious film Justice League, will have an opening of 110-$120 million in North America alone.
Warner Bros. Justice League is all set to release in theaters on November 17, and there is a lot of expectation from this superhero team up film. While analysts predict that the film will be super hit, good reviews and warm audience response is critical and would help the film cross a major hurdle.
Justice League is expected to open up to $110-$120 million in North America. According to Jeff Bock, senior box office analyst at Exhibitor Relations Co, the film should rake approximately $135 million due to the Thanksgiving weekend. Another reason for the possibility of JL doing well is because it faces less competition until the release of Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi in mid-December.
Taking about how the audience will welcome the film, Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst at comScore said, “The difference between ‘love’ and ‘like'” could mean hitting $1 billion worldwide at the box office — or not.
Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad, both of which released last year was a huge worldwide commercial hit. However, lukewarm reviews affected the earnings in the U.S. because of which both of them fell short of $1 billion. Similarly, Wonder Woman which released this year was DC’s first critical hit. But that too failed to touch the $1 billion mark.
Speaking about the audiences reaction to the superhero gig, Dergarabedian said, “An average viewer says you’ve got Aquaman and Wonder Woman and all these great characters in one movie, and that seems fairly irresistible.”
Justice League is a huge leap for DCEU as it had to bring several old and new comic book heroes together. Considering the positive response to the film on social media, one can gauge the level of interest that the film has already generated.
