Fire Snyder!!

Unbelievable that it didn't break $100 Million over the weekend.

Bring on "Star Wars: The Last Jedi" ASAP,I've totally OD'd on Marvel and DC movies on the big screen.

The month of November I am totally spent on superheroes movies. I've seen "Thor: Ragnarok" 2 times and just got home from my 4th viewing of "Justice League" this time in laser IMAX. LOL
I hoarded General Mills cereal boxes which included Cineplex movie codes good until the end of the month.

I watched it yesterday. I went in blind. I only knew there were after credit scenes. Knew nothing about the reviews, issues or Superman mustache. I liked it. I was entertained. The story was a bit disjointed and rushed. I felt like it needed an additional 30 minutes to smooth out some of the parts where they skip. Overall, I think the movie did its job. It established the team and introduced 3 new members for future movies where all 3 characters where likable... though I wish more of Cyborg's personality came out in the movie (besides the booyah at the end).

I enjoyed the movie. I agree that Superman seemed more like Superman this time around. Brighter Costume, kicked everyone's ass, when choosing to fight between steppenwolf and civilians, he want for the civilians, but came back to tune on steppenwolf some more. Didn't have to choose, got to do both. Not like putting him a position watch his dad die, or have to be on the other side of the earth while Metropolis gets leveled).

I don't mind Affleck as Batman.. he did pretty good. I think they can keep building on this universe and making every movie better than the one before it. Hopefully they let other people direct some of these movies. Hopefully the smaller than expected opening doesn't increase DC's level of indecisiveness.

94 million OW. Terrible start for the movie. Just to put that into perspective, the first Guardians of the Galaxy also did 94 million. This was beat by a talking raccoon and a tree that says three words (technically four).

Well, every head count helps with the overall box office success. I've definitely done my share. I've supported countless Hollywood movies by going to multiple viewings, even after attending free advance screenings. I can only do so much! LOL Besides, I'm sort of old school and don't really like watching movies at home. I enjoy these type of blockbuster movies on the big screen preferrably .

The thing is, I liked the movie. I would say it's better than some Marvel movies (Thor Dark World, Incredible Hulk, IM3, etc..). Nowhere near my favourites (Iron Man, Avengers, Captain America, CA: Civil War). Still even the worst marvel movies get better coverage. It's like there's a big hate-on for DC.

I agree with the idea that they should go on without Snyder though. Regardless of what you think of his movies, people crap all over them. At this point they need to work on their image, because people are going to keep crapping on his movies (and to be honest, other directors could probably make better movies).

Marvel keep's making money because they've made a reputation for themselves that they put out quality superhero movies. DC keeps making less because they've created a reputation that they put out mediocre superhero movies.

An awful opening weekend in North America. This is not looking good. Interesting to see the drop off for this weekend. The critics are destroying this movie, but audience response have been very good, so I wonder if this will at least boost a solid second weekend.

US Thanksgiving will help staunch the bleeding to an extent, but the damage has already been done. Pixar's Coco comes out this week, which will get the family demographic, then the following two weeks are notoriously slow at the box office with everyone in pre-Christmas mode. And then Star Wars comes out and kills everything. Believe me, there are some very serious and unhappy meetings going on today at Warner Bros. They had an amazing success a couple months ago with It, but the failure of Justice League is going to hurt. JL is tied for the 2nd most expensive movie of all time. An ultra-high budget demands similar box office, and $96M for the opening weekend does not cut it.

People keep saying the audience is liking this movie but Cinemascore (which gets votes from people who are probably most eager to see the movie) only got a B+ which is not good cause a good chunk of movies get at least an A-.

I think we're mostly talking about personal experiences.

As an example, ten people I know of various ages and comic knowledge went to see it, and they all liked it.

Obviously a small sample, but that's all we can comment on.

Not saying any of those are legit but you definitely need more time for those numbers to sink in and be more the final number. Lots of people can forge or make up a review for something. There is no quality control in that metric. I also think the most important thing is the final opening weekend number was $94 million. There is no one here who would have thought that number was even possible. It was beat by all the superhero movies (except for Logan) and even then, a rated R Logan was only lower by 6 million. This movie clearly struggled and if word of mouth was positive, it would have done better. Positive word of mouth in addition to positive reviews helped Wonder Woman climb from a 60 million box office estimate (about 3-4 weeks prior to release) to closer to what it it made (103 million). Justice League has only declined since the initial reporting of 135 million, then to 120, then to 110, and finally 94.

I guess we will see this week how it does with Thanksgiving but I honestly don't have high hopes.

Saw it last night and definitely enjoyed it. The reviews, ratings, box office results you're all talking about seem "good" but not "great" and that's about my take on the movie. It was good. It succeeded in feeling very much like a DC comic book come to life in a way the past few films haven't (moody MoS, more cinematic WW). There's your convoluted reason for the characters to fight another character (are we spoiling yet?) and a character swooping in to save the day easily at the end, and a lot of good humour along the way, which made it feel like a 'comic book' to me rather than trying too hard to be a 'film,' if that makes sense. I don't think this is a bad thing either.

You have 'superhero' movies that skew drama, or action, or comedy, or even a really good one recently that was basically a Western (Logan). It's okay to have one just feel like a good ol'fashioned comic book teamup.

The Flash's humour was needed in that film. That and the scene with the Lasso of Truth. I'm not sure what all was in the cut before Whedon came in for final edits and reshoots but thankfully he was there to add some lightness, even if the reason why he came on board sucked.
