Justice League debuts in top box office spot

By Tribute on November 19, 2017 | 2 Comments

Justice League posterThe highly anticipated Justice League stormed into theaters this weekend, bumping Marvel’s Thor: Ragnarok out of the top spot.

Wonder Woman, Batman, Superman and the rest of the Justice League won this box office this weekend, bringing in $96 million. This won’t come as a surprise, since the first few movies in the DC Extended Universe all debuted at over $100 million. Our users felt it lived up to its super expectation, rating it 4.2 out of 5 stars.

In second at the box office is a strong debut for the drama Wonder, bringing in $27.1 million. The latest from director Stephen Chbosky (who also adapted his own novel The Perks of Being a Wallflower), had a lot riding on his shoulders as the book of the same title by R.J. Palacio has a huge following and started the #choosekind movement. So far our users have rated it 4.3 out of 5 stars.

Thor: Ragnarok may have lost the top spot but it didn’t fall far. The Chris Hemsworth and Mark Ruffalo-fronted adventure has been crushing it at the box office since it opened and brought in another $21.8 million this weekend. The God of Thunder and The Incredible Hulk have earned a 4.2 out of 5 star rating from our users.

In fourth spot this weekend was the latest Will Ferrell holiday flick, Daddy’s Home 2, which dropped from second place. Audiences seem to enjoy Ferrell’s duo with Mark Wahlberg, helping it bring in $14.8 million in its second weekend. Daddy’s Home 2 has earned a 3.1 out of 5 stars from our users.

Dropping two spots to fifth place, Murder on The Orient Express holds strong in its second week in theaters, bringing in $13.8 million. The celeb-packed thriller is also doing well with viewers, getting a rating of 4.4 stars from our users. ~Hayley Michaud

    Of course JL would debut at #1… I’m glad people are giving it a shot especially since they all seem to get poor reviews (except for WW). I gave it a chance last night as I’ve been wanting to see JL together in a movie since I was a kid running downstairs every Saturday morning to watch Super Friends… I was not happy with this. It was an add for Mercedes firstly. Also the first scene you can clearly tell Superman’s face was CGI’d! That ruined it. It made me look at every scene he was in to analyse the crappy CGI work they did to his face. If that was about the mustache issue, then they did a rush job and it shows…but that many scenes?!?!? And Superman was all powerful immediately after coming back from the dead? In the comics it took a while, but I like how he pretty much can man-handle everyone even the big baddy Steppenwolf which 5 Justice Leaguer’s couldn’t handle.

    I thought I was going to pass. But then I remembered the free passes I have and burned one. Was it worth it? Sure! Is it great? No. Is it entertaining? Yes. I should mention I date to SuperMarionation days (Thunderbirds, Fireball XL5, etc). Visible puppet strings. I can suspend disbelief. As for the cars, well I noticed that, but if you’ve seen Marvel films, you must have noticed how fond they are of Audis. I have always been more fond of Marvel than DC. But – back to JL. Again – not great. However – I say, as a Marvel fan, better than IM 2 and 3, and T:TDW, and not far below GOTG 2 and A:AOU. For a grade? B-.
