November 19, 2017: "Justice League" Box Office Results for Opening Weekend

While the "Justice League" movie took the No. 1 spot at both the U.S. and International Box Office this weekend, the numbers tell differing stories across the board.

Internationally, the film took in an impressive $185.5 million at approximately 47,000 screens in 65 markets, led by $51.7 million in China. This is better than what both "Wonder Woman" and "Thor: Ragnarok" managed on their opening weekends.

Domestically, "Justice League" underperformed, taking in $96 million.

This brings the worldwide total for the weekend to $281.5 million.

According to Variety, "Justice League" carries a production budget of more than $250 million, according to several sources. The studio hopes that DC's interconnected cinematic universe of comic book heroes and villains†can†deliver huge audiences around the globe. Analysts believe "Justice League" would have to bring in a lofty sum of around $600 million from ticket sales alone and additional revenue from ancillaries like pay-TV and home entertainment in order to turn a profit.

"Justice League" is in theatres now. Purchase your tickets from Fandango.
