Rotten Tomatoes' Delayed Release of Dismal Justice League Score Is Raising Eyebrows

Wonder Woman

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 5 percent drop from that to the 43 percent it had when Rotten Tomatoes officially announced its rating was certainly not the development Warner Bros. executives were hoping for, and the further drop overnight does not bode well for the film's ultimate rating.

The movie is doing better other DC films.

The lack of score and reviews appearing on Rotten Tomatoes' website has drawn even more criticism about the site withholding those numbers to help Warner Bros. amid growing rumbling from Hollywood over the summer that Rotten Tomatoes is harming movies.

At this point, the big-budget ensemble is lagging behind Man of Steel (55 percent), but remains ahead of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (27 percent) and Suicide Squad (26 percent).

The reviews have been pouring in for the upcoming DC movie Justice League and it's a bit of mixed bag. One of the show's regular features is a "Tomatometer Score Reveal" - and this week's reveal is Justice League, the hotly anticipated DC Extended Universe movie that unites Batman, Wonder Woman, Superman, Aquaman, and The Flash. It's also worth noting that the ratings might be incorrect, although both Flixster and Rotten Tomatoes are part of Fandango's portfolio of digital properties.




The film opens Thursday night, but the review embargo won't be lifted until Wednesday morning!

Polygon: There are good, cute and amusing moments that the editing team should be applauded for, but there aren't enough to distract from the handsome, chaotic mess that Justice League ends up being.

The Atlantic: Justice League feels like a pilot episode - it's half-formed, overstuffed, and narratively a chore - but at least its gotten all those annoying introductions out of the way. The "See It/Skip It" Facebook reveal is scheduled to air at 12:01 am on Thursday, November 16.

The link between Tomatometer scores and box office returns varies by film, though a high score can boost a smaller film's chances of success, Vox said.

Washington Post: Miller's weird, antiheroic Flash is one of the most refreshing breezes to blow through Justice League, making three years seem a long time to wait for the character's 2020 stand-alone film.
