Box Office: ‘Justice League’ Soars to $13 Million on Thursday Night

Box Office: ‘Justice League’ Soars to $13 Million on Thursday Night
Warner Bros.-DC’s “Justice League” has opened with a solid, but not spectacular $13 million at around 3,700 North American locations on Thursday night.

The number for “Justice League” is the fifth-biggest Thursday preview of 2017, following “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2,” “Beauty and the Beast,” “Spider-Man: Homecoming,” and “Thor: Ragnarok.” “Justice League” tied “It’s” Thursday preview gross. The figure is also $2 million more than “Wonder Woman’s” Thursday night number in June.

Justice League” expands to 4,051 domestic sites on Friday. It has remained on track for an opening weekend of $110 million since late October.

Guitar Superhero Gary Clark Jr. on Covering the Beatles’ ‘Come Together’ for ‘Justice League’

Guitar Superhero Gary Clark Jr. on Covering the Beatles’ ‘Come Together’ for ‘Justice League’
To a lot of music fans of the post-rock generation, “Guitar Hero” is the name of a console game, not something that comes along in real life in the 2010s. Gary Clark Jr. is among the very few of those who’ve been minted lately. He may or may not count as an actual superhero, but there are enough of those to go around in the new “Justice League” film, which has his and Junkie Xl’s cover of the Beatles’ “Come Together” as the principal theme.

On a less heroic note, Clark Jr. also recently collaborated on a cover of Neil Young’s “Ohio” for a very different screen project, Ken Burns’ “The Vietnam War.” Variety spoke with the blues-rocker about both recordings, his Batman wanna-be inclinations, and how he plans to mix blues and hip-hop on his next album.

You’re going to be playing “Come Together” a lot on TV this year. It’s so non-linear

Can Warner Bros.’ Expensive, Long-Awaited ‘Justice League’ Deliver the Hit That DC Needs?

Can Warner Bros.’ Expensive, Long-Awaited ‘Justice League’ Deliver the Hit That DC Needs?
Warner Bros. is holding its breath as the studio prepares to unveil “Justice League” this weekend.

The costly superhero team adventure carries a production budget of more than $250 million, according to several sources, and with it, the hope that DC’s interconnected cinematic universe of comic book heroes and villains can deliver huge audiences around the globe.

When tens of millions of dollars in worldwide marketing and distribution costs are added in, “Justice League” would have to bring in a lofty sum of around $600 million from ticket sales alone and additional revenue from ancillaries like pay-tv and home entertainment in order to turn a profit.

Warner Bros. executives are already concerned that the movie’s debut this weekend — projected to be $110 million — is less than what they had hoped for. In comparison, last year’s “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” opened to $166 million. The film will also face some competition over the upcoming holiday weekend from another

Playback: Patty Jenkins on ‘Wonder Woman’ and Crashing Through Glass Ceilings

Playback: Patty Jenkins on ‘Wonder Woman’ and Crashing Through Glass Ceilings
Welcome to “Playback,” a Variety podcast bringing you exclusive conversations with the talents behind many of today’s hottest films.

Two months ago Patty Jenkins signed a landmark deal to direct the sequel to one of the year’s most acclaimed and popular films. “Wonder Woman” felt like a breath of fresh air amid an ongoing DC cinematic universe that has struggled, whether with critics or, as with the troubled “Justice League,” in actual production. But despite becoming the highest-paid female filmmaker ever, Jenkins never really saw herself as a barricade stormer.

Listen to this week’s episode of “Playback” below. New episodes air every Thursday.

“I think because my mother was, I thought that was really behind us,” Jenkins, who likes to consider herself a “last wave feminist,” says. “I wasn’t thinking about, ‘And then I could be the first woman who…’ Nothing I’ve done

Listen to Danny Elfman’s Justice League ‘Hero’s Theme’

Ever since Danny Elfman replaced Junkie Xl as the composer for Justice League, many have wondered exactly what his score would sound like. Elfman has created some of the most memorable themes for superheroes on film, like the theme for Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man trilogy or, most importantly, the iconic Batman theme from Tim Burton’s Batman. Entertainment Weekly has now provided the track for Elfman’s ‘Hero’s Theme’ from the film. Check it out below…

EW also revealed the full tracklist for Justice League‘s soundtrack. Not only will it include Elfman’s music – as well as a couple extended bonus tracks – but will also have Sigrid’s ‘Everybody Knows’, The White Stripes’ ‘Icky Thump’ and the ‘Come Together’ Beatles cover featured in the first teaser trailer by Gary Clark Jr. and Junkie Xl.

Listen To A Track From Danny Elfman’s Justice League Score

Even though Junkie Xl is a fantastic composer in his own right, I’m reasonably certain that not many fans were up in arms when Danny Elfman was announced as being his replacement as composer on Justice League a few months back. After all, Elfman was responsible for the music heard in Batman and Batman Returns, both of which remain two of the best superhero soundtracks to this day, at least in my opinion. But, if you need a little more assurance, know that his resume also includes heavy hitters in the genre such as Spider-Man, Spider-Man 2, Hulk and Hellboy II: The Golden Army.

Still, there may be some of you out there that need more convincing, so it’s quite fortunate that a sample of the film’s score has now found its way online. Thanks to Entertainment Weekly, we’re able to listen to the third track,

Marvel’s Inhumans – IMAX Preview and Q&A Report

Thomas Harris reports from an IMAX preview and Q&A for Marvel’s Inhumans

If IMAX CEO Greg Foster is to be believed, the upcoming Inhumans series will change the way we watch television. The first series to be shot with IMAX cameras, it’s to be broadcasted – or at least the first two episodes – across cinemas and IMAX screens around the globe, only for the further episodes to be viewed on your couch.

All this bodes rather well. It’s a landmark event, a one off, the first in what Foster hopes will be a regular occurrence. I had the pleasure of attending a preview of early, largely unfinished footage of Inhumans at the BFI IMAX with an introduction and Q & A with director and producer Roel Reiné.

There was certain trepadation when the first trailer dropped. The footage looked flat, the costumes largely ridiculous, the CGI cheap, and little seems to have changed.
