In its third weekend in theaters, Justice League dropped 60 percent, taking in another $16.6 million at the box office, bringing its domestic haul to $197.3 million. That's less than ideal, as most huge tentpoles this far out have already crossed $200 million domestically. Thankfully, the film is performing a bit better internationally, having managed $370.1 million overseas, bringing its global haul to $567.4 million. At this rate, the film should finish between $700-$750 million at the worldwide box office, which is less than the $873 million for 2016's Batman v Superman.

The film remains the lowest performing DC Extended Universe film, with Wonder Woman having grossed $275.1 million within its first 17 days this summer, and Suicide Squad amassing $262.4 million within the same time frame last year. Justice League will finally pass $200 million on Monday, going into its fourth week in release, with the film more than likely finishing around $250 million stateside.
