Despite Warner Bros.' review embargo, and the decision by Rotten Tomatoes to delay the reveal of its often-dreaded aggregated score, the website's rating for Justice League has already leaked on a social movie app.
Fast Company notes that Flixter, which features reviews from Rotten Tomatoes and allows users to search films by Tomatometer score, reveals that figure for Justice League, and it's not particularly good: 48 percent. That's perhaps not entirely surprising, given that early reviews for the Zack Snyder film have been mixed at best, ranging from fun to boring. If any kind of consensus has emerged, it's that the movie is a bit chaotic.
Rotten Tomatoes announced that it won't reveal Justice League's score until Thursday at 12:01 a.m. PT, leading to speculation that Warner Bros., which owns a minority stake in the website, might have applied pressure in hopes of improving the film's opening-weekend box office. However, it seems more likely that the site is using the big reveal as an opportunity to drive viewership of its See It/Skip It series on Facebook.
Opening Friday nationwide, Justice League stars Ben Affleck as Batman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Henry Cavill as Superman, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Jason Momoa as Aquaman, Ezra Miller as The Flash, Ray Fisher as Cyborg, Jeremy Irons as Alfred Pennyworth, Diane Lane as Martha Kent, Willem Dafoe as Nuidis Vulko, Ciarán Hinds as Steppenwolf, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor and J.K. Simmons as Commissioner Gordon.
