It may not quite be the box office smash that Warner Bros. was hoping for, but the DC superhero blockbuster Justice League has broken the half billion mark at the worldwide box office in its third weekend, with the film pushing its global haul to $567.4 million.
Domestically, Justice League retained second place this weekend behind Coco, with a weekend of $16.6 million pushing its North American total to $197.3 million. The Zack Snyder-directed blockbuster has added a further $370.1 million from international markets.
Justice League still has some work to do if it is to avoid becoming the lowest grossing instalment of the DCEU, with Man of Steel sitting on $668 million. Warner Bros. will surely be hoping that the DC heroes can shift a few more tickets before Star Wars: The Last Jedi sucks the life out of the rest of the box office later this month.
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. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.
Justice League reunites Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice stars Henry Cavill as Superman, Ben Affleck as Batman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Ray Fisher as Cyborg, Jason Momoa as Aquaman, Ezra Miller as The Flash, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Jeremy Irons as Alfred Pennyworth, Diane Lane as Martha Kent, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Connie Nielsen as Queen Hippolyta and Robin Wright as General Antiope alongside J.K.
