While Justice League‘s Rotten Tomatoes score is not quite as hot as some DC fans were hoping for (it is currently sitting at 39%), the film’s newly-released CinemaScore might be more to their liking.
The DCEU film earned a B+ from fans in its opening weekend. It also scored a B+ amongst males, who made up 58% of the audience, while scoring an A- with the females making up the remaining 42% of the audience. 31% of the audience was under the age of 25, with their scores averaging out to an A-, and it earned a B+ with the 25-and-up crowd who made up 69% of the audience polled.
While Rotten Tomatoes aggregates and averages out a film’s reviews from critics to determine its Tomatometer score, a film’s CinemaScore comes directly from the film fans themselves. As someone who has seen the film twice and really enjoyed it, the film’s CinemaScore is right where I would place it. It’s not a perfect comic book film, but I found so much to love in it.

“Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.”
