The Rotten Tomatoes score for Dwayne Johnson’s Black Adam movie has been revealed.

Dwayne Johnson’s first cinematic solo outing as Black Adam doesn’t open in theaters until later this week but a lot of critics have already seen the highly-anticipated comic book movie. The review embrago for Black Adam was officially lifted last night and now the Rotten Tomatoes score for the latest DC Extended Universe release is available on the company’s website.

Black Adam’s Rotten Tomatoes score is here

The Rotten Tomatoes score of Black Adam currently stands at 55 percent, based on 64 reviews from Tomatometer-approved critics. That number should change as more reviews are published closer to the film’s opening. It’s just below the 56 percent score of 2013’s Man of Steel and one of the lowest scores for a DC Extended Universe movie, ahead of Justice League (39 percent), Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (29 percent) and Suicide Squad (26 percent).

Black Adam is currently tracking to open somewhere between $70-75 million at the North American box office, making it one of Dwayne Johnson’s biggest launches. If the word of mouth on the film is positive, we could even see a higher number than that at the end of this week.

Directed by Jaume Collet-Serra from a script written by by Adam Sztykiel and Rory Haines & Sohrab Noshirvani, Black Adam stars Dwayne Johnson, Aldis Hodge, Noah Centineo, Sarah Shahi, Marwan Kenzari, Quintessa Swindell, Bodhi Sabongui and Pierce Brosnan.

Black Adam arrives in theaters on October 21, 2022. Be sure to continue following us for all the latest news regarding the film and to subscribe to our YouTube channel for more content!
