Justice League finally debuted over the weekend in over 4,000 theatres and in doing so, fell far short of industry expectations. The movie took the No 1 spot, with an estimated $96 million, far below the projected $120 some outlets pegged for its opening. Wonder took the No 2 spot with an estimated $27 million, while Thor Ragnarok took the No 3 spot with an estimated $21.7 million, for a domestic total just shy of $250 million. Daddy's Home took the No 4 spot with an estimated $14.8 million and Murder on the Orient Express rounds out the top five with an estimated $13.8 million.
Deadline reports that the bidding war for Quentin Tarantino’s next movie is officially over and Sony has landed the rights to distribute. Details about the deal, according to THR, point out that Tarantino demanded a budget of $93 million to get the 1960s-set project made, along with back end points and immense creative control as well as final cut. The film will be another Tarantino-esque view on history, specifically Los Angeles in the late 60s, with Tom Cruise, Brad Pitt, and Leonardo DiCaprio all being mentioned for the two lead male roles.
