With all the focus on Justice League’s $96 million domestic opening weekend, it was lost in the news that the film had a $185 million international opening. A big chunk of that came from China where it made $51.7 million.
The movie was first in 10 other Asian markets, making $41 million.
So far Justice League’s worldwide box office stands at $281 million. With a rumored production budget of $250 million, Warner Bros. was hoping for larger international numbers to compensate.
Justice League features Batman gathering Wonder Woman, The Flash, Cyborg and Aquaman to fight a threat to the entire planet.
Thor: Ragnarok and Murder on the Orient Express finished second and third overseas.
Justice League stars Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne/Batman, Gal Gadot as Diana Prince/Wonder Woman, Henry Cavill as Clark Kent/Superman, Jason Momoa as Arthur Curry/Aquaman, Ezra Miller as Barry Allen/The Flash and Ray Fisher as Victor Stone/Cyborg, and is currently playing in theaters.
