Justice League’s ballooning budget and unexpectedly low box office opening is just the beginning of Warner Bros’ troubles, a new report suggests. Forbes has crunched the numbers, and come to the conclusion that the superhero film would have to make $600 million (Rs 3880 crore) to break even.
The report breaks down the various costs Warner Bros has incurred in producing the film. The film cost $300 million to make, with an additional $150 million spent on advertising (That’s almost Rs 3000 crore).
Based on the current trajectory, Forbes predicts the film will make just shy of $650 million worldwide by the end of its run, making it the lowest grossing entry in the troubled DC Extended Universe - by far.
Of that $635 projected gross, Forbes says “Warner Bros will get to keep around 52% of the domestic grosses, and a weighted average of around 38% of the foreign tally (that’s 25% of the projected $90 million from China, and 42% of the aggregated grosses from all other overseas territories).”
Forbes predicts the film will lose between $50 and $100 million for the studio. Justice League’s current box office total stands at $380 million in one week of release.
