‘Black Adam has all the ingredients of an international hit’: DC Fans Convinced the Rock Movie Will Be a Hit Overseas After Domestic Collections Hit Only a ‘Decent’ $26.8M

Black Adam

Black Adam managed to perform averagely at the US box office after the initial release of the film. Much to the surprise of fans, the Dwayne Johnson starrer movie once again became a battlefield for the audience and the critics.

Earning a ‘decent’ amount of money in the US, a writer (among many other interests) took to Twitter and noted that the film would work and earn overseas, as the global box office collection will shoot sky high.

Black Adam To Earn Globally After Earning Average In US?

Some movies are meant to be remembered. But the countless marketing strategies and publicity for Black Adam done by Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson were not enough to push the movie over to the finish line. Despite 15 years of the Jumanji actor’s hard work and dedication, the critics decided to give it a score of 40% on Rotten Tomatoes.

After earning around 26 million dollars at the US box office, Black Adam’s admirers took to Twitter to post about the potential success that the movie might make overseas at the global box office.

The general trend of DC movies earning overseas has been in tradition for far too long, as DC movies generally please the global audience more. The same relation was seen when Henry Cavill starrer Man of Steel (2013) was released siding alongside Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016).

Not only is the monetary tradition observed among DC movies but a battle within is constantly seen. DC fans and movie critics are constantly at war with each other whenever a new movie hits the shelves. The trend has been observed since the 2013 Man of Steel which sits at a critic score of 56% but an audience score of 75%. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016) faced a similar dilemma when the critics gave it a score of 29% while the audience evaluated a score of 63%.

Black Adam is riding along the Rotten Tomato wave with all the other DC films as the critics’ ratings drop to 40%, but the audience maintains a score of 90%. The film (being heavily marketed) is expected to be one of the finest that DC has to offer and will usher in a new era of the DCEU, according to Dwayne Johnson.

Black Adam is currently running in theaters for people to watch all over the world.
