Warner Bros.’ recent superhero team-up flick, Justice League has just crossed the $500 million mark at the global box office, Forbes is reporting. This number comes 13 days after the film’s launch in North America, and in those days, they’ve managed to tally up $178.9 million domestically.
Justice League has had a bit of a rough start — only taking in $94 million in its opening weekend. With any other film, this could be viewed as a success, but given the huge, $300 million price tag attached to it (not even including marketing), as well as the fact that this film sees the union of six big DC heroes, it’s a huge disappointment.
At this point, Justice League is really pushing to just break even, with analysts pointing to around $700 million being the magic number they have to hit. But can it do it? It’s not impossible, but it is unlikely. These next two weekends will be a crucial one for the film, as they will be the last ones before juggernaut Star Wars: The Last Jedi hits theaters.
Earlier reports projected the film will peter out at around $635 million, but of course, that could change. Plus, with the release of the new Avengers: Infinity War trailer, some audiences may find the itch to see a superhero team-up film in any form, even it’s not of the Marvel persuasion.
