'Justice League' opens with gloomy $96 million in North America

DC Comics' mightiest heroes are uniting on the big screen for the first time, saving the world from certain doom, and topping the box office in Justice League - but the highly anticipated film is nonetheless falling short of expectations. Its opening comes two weeks after Disney-Marvel's "Thor: Ragnarok" debuted above forecasts with a $122.7 million opening weekend in what was the fourth-biggest launch of the year.

As such, Justice League took $7 million less than Wonder Woman. Fox Searchlight opened McDonagh's movie in NY and L.A. last weekend then expanded it into 53 theaters on Friday where it took in $1.1 million (about $21,132 per theater) for ninth place. For one, we're about to hit a very crowded corridor of new releases, from Coco to Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

Although it doesn't quiet reach the levels expected of it, Zack Snyder does manage to deliver an exciting new chapter in the DC universe that leaves the door open for more to come.

Goldstein said he is also encouraged by a few factors, including the overall B+ CinemaScore, the fact that women, who accounted for 42 percent of the audience, gave it an A- overall, and that Saturday earnings were up from Friday's. If the idea of marketing is to sell a movie and convince people to see it ASAP, CinemaScore tells you what those people who were swayed by the marketing thought of the film. 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. The actor then went on to reprise the role for Snyder's followup in 2016, Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, in which Kal-El met his maker at the hands of the abomination Doomsday (itself, the mutated, resurrected corpse of Superman's old nemesis General Zod).

That was a huge blow to the domestic box office of "Justice League".

Justice League is here and expectations are high. Those close to production continually promised that Justice League as always meant to be lighter and more fun, and while the reception has been mixed on the film, Justice League is certainly a fun film. 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 global roll-out.

Justice League did decently in Thursday previews with $13 million, more than Wonder Woman's previews but about half what Batman v Superman made on Thursday. 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.
