Justice League has just hit another important milestone. According to Box Office Mojo, the film has blown past the $600 million mark, which was an important one to break, considering its somewhat disappointing performance. Currently, the film is sitting at $613.4 million worldiwde.
The film suffered an inflated budget over its production due to reshoots, and as a result, it is rumored to have cost around $300 million to make. With that in mind, it’s been speculated that the flick will need to make around $700 million to break even. The $600 million makes it one step closer to making that happen.
When all said and done, it seems unlikely that it’ll actually make that money, but it looks like it could still make it so that it loses no more than around $50 million — which isn’t half bad considering the unnecessary hate and criticism the flick took (at least in this writer’s opinion).
With Star Wars: The Last Jedi coming out this weekend, this was the film’s last chance to make meaningful gains, and with its grosses amounting to $9 million domestically, it looks like it’s nearing the end of its rope, theatrically. Now, it’s likely that Star Wars: The Last Jedi will be the last thing needed to kick the film to the curb.
All the same, $600 million is a figure worth celebrating, as there were some, upon the film’s release, who were convinced the movie wouldn’t even break that.
