“Justice League” is DC’s Highest Grossing Movie in China

While the “Justice League” movie hasn’t done exceedingly well in the USA, internationally the film continues to fly high, especially in China, where the film has become the highest grossing DC Comics film to date.

In just three weeks “Justice League” has surpassed both “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” and “Wonder Woman” in China. Globally the film has taken in $569.2 million, with China accounting for $98.6 million of that amount.

It’s good to know the film is doing well overseas. Just enough to recoup its budget. Despite not being a success in the US, the international market has proven successful and consistent, and that’s the case that matters. I mean it already made over half a billion.
Oh and off topic: JL is among the top twenty contenders for the Oscars. Henry’s moustache should win

No exactly accurate on recouping it’s budget.
The studio only gets about 20-25% of the overseas profits and 50% the first couple of weeks for domestic, with that percentage going down after, this is literally coming down to the end of it’s run on whether it’s going to be recouping it’s budget or not.
Hopefully it does, I want the universe to continue and regain the audience’s trust.

Here’s hoping too. And thank you for the heads up.
I think there is a good chance this universe will continue. If they don’t get it right with the course correction with Aquaman, they should then lay low for a while. But I’m pretty optimistic.

If you don’t think JL was “course correcting” with rebranding Superman- well, you’re wrong.

Of course, they still don’t seem to be looking into another Superman movie, even though Superman seems to have been one of the more generally popular parts of JL.

The lighter tone of the film and Superman’s resurrection into the Superman everybody remembers being did shift along pretty good I’d say.
WB wants nowadays everything so dark and brooding like Batman, Wolverine. They should take cue though from the earlier Superman features that came before and most of the comics for inspiration. Just like cooking spaghetti. Keep the basics and yet add whatever flavour you feel like as long as you stay true to the essence.

The bright side I guess is that after Aquaman, The Batman, and Wonder Woman 2, we will hopefully get a full reboot. Or perhaps DC won’t follow the Marvel shared universe model and instead focus on making good standalone movies featuring their characters. That to me is the bright side from all this.

It’s still got some life in it domestically, and is past the $200M mark. So, until Star Wars comes out, there is a chance that it will hit the $300M mark.

I’m still stumped – can someone please explain to me how Autumn Snyder being about 16 years old during the filming of BvS was able to be lifted on Zac’s shoulders as many sites claim during her claimed “uh oh” audio piece? e.g. “Zack placed Autumn on his shoulder and right as the drums get louder, you can hear her saying “uh-oh.” Note not leaning on his shoulder but placed on his shoulder. Who places a 16 yo on their shoulder? And that Autumn apparently died a very short time AFTER the private screening of JL in early Feb? 2017?… Read more »

I think it may have been Snyder’s choice to step down. He probably tried to keep himself busy with the movie after the tragic death of his daughter to keep his mind from dwelling on sadness & depression. I read that he has not even seen the movie in its theatrical release yet…to which some people have laughed and said that even he finds the movie an “embarrassment & failure” but I truly believe it that is not the case…more like it may bring up too many fresh & painful memories for him. Yes, the movie did suffer from his… Read more »
