People like the now-disgraced director Brett Ratner argued that the movie review aggregator is "destroying the film industry", while others pointed out that there appears to be no correlation between a low rating on Rotten Tomatoes and box office failure. After irking some fans following their controversial decision to delay the reveal for 24 hours just to announce it on the site's newest Facebook show See It/Skip It, the Zack Snyder-film finally has a spot in the DC Films' RT spectrum - landing right in the middle considering all the other movies from the comic book film franchise. Does this mean Warner Bros.is nervous about the score? As of time of writing, 156 reviews have been counted.
The late review embargo lift doesn't bode well for Justice League, which has been mired in behind-the-scenes changes and overhauls after extensive reshoots overseen by Joss Whedon. Rotten Tomatoes has begun holding back scores for some films and television shows so they can be revealed at the end of each episode, and this is the third time a score has been held for the Facebook show.
Update, Nov. 16, 1:36 p.m.: The Rotten Tomatoes score for Justice League is now at 40 percent and has been posted on the site. Aside from their personal views, the hosts are also tasked to reveal the Tomatometer score for any upcoming big and small screen offerings and this week, it was the DC epic under the spotlight. Domestically, estimates put the movie's opening weekend somewhere around $110 million to $120 million, which would put Justice League's opening weekend slightly in front of Wonder Woman's ($103.3 million), but well behind Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice's ($166 million). The reception is not as bad as Suicide Squad and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, but it falls short of the universal praise Wonder Woman got earlier this year. Man of Steel, the 2013 Superman film that kicked off the shared universe, earned a middling 55 percent. The average score for the movie is a 5.2/10 meaning most reviews gave it 2 or 3 stars in total.
