Warner Bros.’ DC Entertainment is actually bringing out all its stars due to in which weekend’s comic book mash-up, “Justice League.” yet will audiences embrace the superhero squad at the box office the way they flocked to in which summer’s “Wonder Woman?”
So far the answer seems to be maybe.
The film, which has Ben Affleck’s Batman as well as Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman fighting alongside different DC crusaders like Erza Miller’s The Flash, Jason Momoa’s Aquaman, as well as Ray Fisher’s Cyborg, brought in $13 million in preview showings on Thursday night.
in which’s not bad, yet “Wonder Woman” brought in $11 million for its Thursday night screenings, as well as in which film wasn’t packed with superheroes. “Wonder Woman” ultimately raked in $103 million domestically its opening weekend in June.
“Justice League” is actually projected to make roughly $110 million for its opening in North America in which weekend, according to industry analysts. in which could put the idea behind 2013’s “Man of Steel,” 2016’s “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” as well as “Suicide Squad.”
However, some analysts who are looking at Friday’s early box office returns are saying the film could potentially dip lower.
If “Justice League” meets expectations, the idea will topple “Wonder Woman’s” opening weekend performance. However, “Wonder Woman” had something in which “Justice League” does not: rave reviews.

“Wonder Woman” currently holds a 92% score on review site Rotten Tomatoes, which makes the idea one of the best reviewed films of the year. “Justice League,” on the different hand, clocks in at 39%, which may not affect its initial opening, yet the idea could hurt ticket sales within the weeks to come.
The acclaim for “Wonder Woman” helped build word of mouth, which kept audiences coming back weeks, even months, after the idea opened.
