Justice League

Justice League at box office with $96 million opening

Justice League, opened on Friday and it was a big hit, bringing in $96 million in the US and Canada. However, that figure is below industry predictions of around $110 million. Justice League is now the first of the five DC Extended Universe films to open with less than $100 million in the US.

It’s behind Wonder Woman ($103.3 million), Man of Steel ($116.6 million), Suicide Squad ($133.7 million), and Batman v Superman ($166 million).

Despite all of that, $96 million is a huge figure and it’s just one piece of the pie. Justice League made $185.5 million from international markets this weekend, pushing its global haul to $281.5 million after just one weekend. The film reportedly had a $300 million budget.
