DC Disappoints With “Justice League” At The Box Office

Published

on

According to the box office numbers, fans didn’t exactly line up for DC’s “Justice League”.  Earning only $96 million in the U.S. market this weekend, this marks the lowest grossing opening for the DC Expanded Universe. Fans of the classic DC Comics’ motley crew of superheroes entered theaters with mixed hopes. With most leaving theaters with even less.

In response to the commercial success of Marvel’s Cinematic Universe, DC executives hoped to achieve the same results.  It’s first Expanded Universe film being “Man of Steel” (2013). The latest entry in the connected universe for DC “Justice League” came into theaters on November 17, 2017. The film starts shortly after the closing events in “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” (2016).

The film follows the established characters of Batman and Wonder Woman played by  Ben Affleck and Gal Gadot, respectfully. The pair set out to recruit members to fight the latest threat to Earth. Joining the ranks is the young and eager The Flash, the brooding Cyborg, and the loner prince of the sea, Aquaman.

“Justice League” tries to establish 3 new heroes, in addition to setting the stage for the DC Expanded Universe. However, the movie falls short on both counts. The movie not only under performed DC’s projected sales goals, but also fans’ and newcomers’ expectations. In some instances the film was visually appeasing. However, the storytelling and atmosphere leaves critics with a lot to be desired.

Critic with New York Times, Manohla Dargis, had this to say about the film:

Mr. Snyder remains regrettably committed to a dark, desaturated palette that borders on the murky, and this movie’s chaotic, unimaginative action scenes can drag on forever.

Dargis goes on to say while not the worst film in the franchise. The touches of humor are a welcomed relief to the film that the gloomy “Batman V Superman“” lacked.

Despite the mixed to negative reviews of “Justice League”, Warner Bro’s still remain hopeful of the movie’s long term success. Head of domestic distribution at Warner Bros., Jeff Goldstein, said, ”This is a big vacation week, and we have an opportunity to get a big audience to see us in a different pattern.” We can only hope that future DC movies will follow a different pattern from the “Justice League” film as well.

El-P and Killer Mike are ready for an alien invasion in their lastest video.

The clip opens with a comical RTJ3 news report teasing “strange weather patterns” throughout the city. From there, it cuts to Killer Mike and El-P walking backstage at the Garden to rapturous applause. When they walk back out for an encore, they discover that the audience has vanished. Meanwhile, a series of threats – falling meteors, mutant spiders, UFOs – loom outside.

“Call Ticketron” highlights the rap duo’s third LP, 2016’s Run the Jewels 3. The group, which recently concluded a massive 2017 tour, will kick off a leg of Australian dates in January followed by a supporting slot on Lorde’s North American spring tour.

Deadpool Will Continue To Be Rated R

Published

on

The merch with the mouth will continue to be the same character. Disney CEO Bob Iger has addressed the future of Deadpool, confirming Fox’s film franchise will remain R-rated following Disney’s acquisition of 21st Century Fox.

“It [Deadpool] clearly has been and will be Marvel branded. But we think there might be an opportunity for a Marvel-R brand for something like Deadpool,” Iger said in a call with investors following the news that Disney will purchase 21st Century Fox  “As long as we let the audiences know what’s coming, we think we can manage that fine,” he added.

Deadpool creator Rob Liefeld also chimed in on the decision.

[Disney CEO] Bob Iger didn’t deliver this unprecedented level of historic success for Disney by accident. This man gets it. He understands the culture and more importantly, he understands the concerns of the fans. Addressing the Deadpool issue right out of the gate gets high marks and in all honesty, why would they mess with the success that Ryan Reynolds has achieved as Deadpool?
