    They initally expected it o come in just under The Forces Awakens and right above The Last Jedi, even as late as Saturday afternoon. I guess the positive buzz I've heard from fans who saw it Thursday and Friday really pushed it past expectations.

    Thought this was quite comical...

    "The numbers, according to Box Office Mojo, are thus: Avengers: Infinity War has already made $258 million domestically, a record in and of itself, and Justice League didn’t even crack that. The DC hero teamup made $229 million total in the U.S., and nearly $429 million in foreign markets, a number that Infinity War, with $380 million overseas, is already catching up with. It’s only a matter of time until Infinity War matches and surpasses Justice League’s worldwide total of $658 million."

    Hell, only thing that movie didn't have was Star Wars characters.

    I'm not at all surprised.I saw Infinity War yesterday and I was so hyped I rented Justice League, which I'd  avoided up to that point.

    The difference in tone right from the beginning was incredible, even as tragic as the moments in Infinity were.  I swear to god, the opening credits of JL is a montage that belongs in an episode of The Leftovers.

    @ken hale That's interesting. One of the points I brought up to my friend after the show was how much the ending reminded me of The Leftovers. Guess I need to watch Justice League. It looked so bad I wrote it off as a Kardashian.
  • @Freddy I wouldn't say you need to watch Justice League.  It wasn't as outright terrible a take on the characters as I expected after the Snyder movies that preceded it, but it's still really unbalanced.
