Estimates for the number the film needed to surpass internationally in order to cover its production and promotional costs and break even ranged from $300 million to $460 million.
First of all, this movie only made money because it’s a superhero movie. Everyone likes superheroes and there is no way a parent is not going to take their children to see it. Look at Transformers. Most of the movies are downright idiotic but it still makes money because it’s…..Transformers. So all popular comic book hero movies will make money period.
I can’t make sense of the movie and I really don’t think the writers knew either. Her morales flip flop, the bad guy has no real reason to be “bad”, the good guy has no real reason to “die.” The side characters really didn’t serve much of a purpose.
Some parts of the movie are decent and a few seconds later, the same scene turn into a total crapfest. The 3rd part is an utter mess and that act alone should be more then enough reason to keep WW off the top of the charts but somehow has a 94% rating on RT? That right there shows you that ratings are padded because you can’t have at least 1/3 of a movie be total trash, 1/3 of the movie just corny dialog and somehow end up at the top of the charts.
