Warner Bros Justice League Tracking for a $110 Million Opening Weekend

Posted by at 3:40 pm on November 15, 2017

Warner Bros.-DC’s Justice League remains on track for an opening weekend of $110 million at 4,040 North American locations. Tracking for the mega-budget superhero tentpole hasn’t shifted since Oct. 26, when estimates were first unveiled. Since then, Disney-Marvel’s Thor: Ragnarok opened with $122.7 million on the first weekend in November in what was the fourth-biggest launch of the year after Beauty and the Beast, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, and It.

Justice League is also opening day-and-date in international markets, with the film launching in Belgium, Brazil, France, Scandinavia, and South Korea today.

Stakes are high for Warner Bros., which hasn’t revealed the cost of “Justice League” — estimated to be as much as $300 million, although the studio has provided no guidance on the cost. The movie is the fifth installment of its DC Extended Universe, aimed at duplicating the success of Disney-Marvel’s interconnected franchises.

Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, Jason Momoa, Ezra Miller, and Ray Fisher star. Amy Adams, Amber Heard, Jeremy Irons, J.K. Simmons, and Willem Dafoe also appear in the pic. Zack Snyder began shooting “Justice League” in April of 2016, from a script by Chris Terrio. Joss Whedon — director of Marvel-Disney’s two “Avengers” movies — finished up the directing duties following the tragic suicide of Snyder’s daughter.

Justice League is opening at 400 Imax locations, 600 premium large-format screens, 200 motion seat venues, 200 dine-in locations, and 60 drive-ins. It will begin Thursday night previews at 6 p.m. at about 3,700 North American locations. Advance ticket sales for Justice League are outpacing Wonder Woman on MovieTickets.com at the same point in sales cycle.
