Justice League Rotten Tomatoes Score Officially Revealed, and It's Bad

The primary concern here is that sites like Rotten Tomatoes or Metacritic could be influential enough to stop people from going to see the movie if it is given a bad review, and that perhaps the critics giving the movie a bad review are all wrong.

The official Rotten Tomatoes score for Justice League, which was delayed but partially leaked yesterday, isn't very good. That's considerably lower than what we predicted based on the mixed-to-positive first reactions to the film and puts the movie in the mid-tier of DC Extended Universe entries. The anticipated grade for Justice League has come under particularly tough scrutiny after it was delayed almost a day so that it could be revealed on the site's new Facebook show See It/Skip It. The site offers a quick way for users to figure out what the critical consensus is about a given film, aided with a helpful visual of a juicy red tomato or a rotten green splat. Gadot's portrayal of Wonder Woman - robust, athletic and kind-hearted - saves the day and makes Justice League a team worth following. Warner's Justice League is tracking to debut to $110 million this weekend.

Fans will have to wait until the release to know where Justice League finally stands on the Rotten Tomatoes site.

Justice League reviews will start coming out early Wednesday morning - the studio-imposed embargo lifts at 2:50 am Eastern on November 15.

Part of the reason many eyes are on how "Justice League" performs is because of the smashing success of "Wonder Woman".

Justice League opens in theaters Thursday evening in North America and several other territories.

"The goal of Rotten Tomatoes, as per its own About Us page, is that it "offers the most comprehensive guide to what's fresh". Be sure to tell us your thoughts on Rotten Tomatoes and DC Films in the comments! Plus, there's now no critics consensus on Justice League's Rotten Tomatoes page, so it looks like they're giving it some special treatment. Fandago's ownership of Rotten Tomatoes has likely contributed to the site's popularity surging in the past year, attracting 13.6 million unique visitors in May, the New York Times reported.

So, in summation, critics reviews are useful, but more likely to help a great, tiny movie to get attention, rather than stop a bad (or, in this case, mediocre) blockbuster making bank. 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.
