‘Justice League’ closes in on $500M worldwide

Justice League

Justice League has completed its second weekend at the box office. The news is once again mixed. At home in the United States the film made an estimated $40.7M over the weekend. That’s a 57% drop over its first week.

Though that drop sounds sheer it’s lower than the drops of Batman Superman: Dawn of Justice (-69%), Suicide Squad (-67%) but higher than the 43% drop that Wonder Woman faced in its second weekend. Its domestic total is now $171.5M.

The good news is the film is holding on much stronger internationally. Playing in 66 markets the film was able to take another $72.2M. China continues to lead the way although the film has fallen in to second place behind Disney’s Coco.

The international total for Justice League now sits at $309.8M. Worldwide the gross is now $481.3M. Not what Warner Bros. was hoping for overall but not a disaster.

Fuelled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Supermans selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes – Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash – it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.

Justice League stars Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne/Batman, Henry Cavill as Clark Kent/Superman and Gal Gadot as Diana Prince/Wonder Woman. Joining them are Jason Mamoa as Arthur Curry/Aquaman, Ray Fisher as Victor Stone/Cyborg, and Ezra Miller as Barry Allen/The Flash.

The film is directed by Zack Snyder and Joss Whedon from a screenplay by Chris Terrio. Justice League hits cinemas on November 17th 2017 from Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment.
