The ‘Justice League’ Rotten Tomatoes Score May Have Leaked Early
Today in “Oops, my bad”: Despite Warner Bros.’ commitment to ensuring the Rotten Tomatoes score for Justice League remains under wraps until tomorrow, it looks like that number might have leaked a little early. According to screenshots of the score, which has since been removed, the approval rating for the DCEU’s superhero ensemble is…well, it’s definitely not ideal, but it may be higher than some were expecting, depending on how you feel about the DC movies thus far.
Although the social media embargo lifted late last week, and the first official reviews for Justice League hit the internet early (like, unreasonably early) this morning, the Rotten Tomatoes score was not supposed to be revealed until tomorrow. But reading those reviews, including a fairly negative one from our editor-in-chief Matt Singer, you can kind of ballpark what the score might be.
Whatever number you came up with might be a little lower than the actual score, which was inadvertently leaked via Fandango’s Flixster app. The score has since been removed from the app, but not before users had a chance to take screenshots and share them on social media:
On the movie ticketing app, the score went up from 48 percent to 51 percent (fresh, but just barely) before disappearing altogether.
Despite having a somewhat low score, Justice League is actually doing okay with critics in comparison to Batman v Superman and Suicide Squad. Most reviews of Zack Snyder and Joss Whedon’s superhero collaboration are mixed, and though it’s certainly not as well-received as Wonder Woman, it’s still tracking for a huge opening weekend (obviously).
