'Justice League' dominates weekend box office in S. Korea

'Justice League' dominates weekend box office in S. Korea

Justice League Synopsis: In Justice League, fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman's selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy.

The global box office totals cushioned the hard landing a little bit for the superhero flick, as it did $185.5 million overseas - giving it a cumulative $281.5 million global launch across all markets. For those who believe the movie didn't hit the $100 million mark because of bad luck, this is the example they can use.

Justice League is directed by Zack Snyder with post-production duties handled by Joss Whedon.

Warner's general plan was to try to recreate the success of Marvel's The Avengers by introducing a few of the DCEU characters and then bringing them together. For example, Wonder Woman experienced a similar (though, in this case, expected) opening weekend but finished taking $821.8m worldwide.

In theaters now, Justice League stars Ben Affleck as Batman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Henry Cavill as Superman, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Jason Momoa as Aquaman, Ezra Miller as The Flash, Ray Fisher as Cyborg, Jeremy Irons as Alfred Pennyworth, Diane Lane as Martha Kent, Ciarán Hinds as Steppenwolf, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor and J.K. Simmons as Commissioner Gordon. Fox Searchlight opened McDonagh's movie in NY and L.A. last weekend then expanded it into 53 theaters on Friday where it took in $1.1 million (about $21,132 per theater) for ninth place.

"Justice League" had been on track for an opening weekend of $110 million since late October. Cinema Score now ranks the film as a B+ based on audience reactions, while Rotten Tomatoes has it at a 39% according to critics, and an 85% audience score.

Disney and Marvel's "Thor: Ragnarok" fell to third place in weekend three with $21.8 million, bringing its North American total to $247.4 million.

Rounding out the top five, Daddy's Home 2 took home $14.8 million in fourth place, and Murder on the Orient Express took in $13.8 million in its second weekend in theaters. "Wonder", starring Jacob Tremblay as a fifth grader with a facial deformity, received an A+ CinemaScore with an audience that was 68% female and 66% over 25. If the idea of marketing is to sell a movie and convince people to see it ASAP, CinemaScore tells you what those people who were swayed by the marketing thought of the film. The original "Bad Moms" grossed $113 million past year. Wonder's Thursday previews of $740,000 didn't give a clue how much the drama based on Raquel J. Palacio's novel would make on Friday, as it exploded with $9.7 mill., much of that coming from group sales to classes attending the movie as a group.

Overall business topped $200 million for the weekend - a robust 27.8% gain over the same weekend a year ago.
