As was widely reported Tuesday, review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes planned to delay revealing its critic score for DC and Warner Bros' "Justice League" so it could drive viewers to its new show on Facebook.
Well, someone at Fandango, which owns Rotten Tomatoes, forgot to hide the score on their Flixster app property.
According to our friends at GeekTyrant, the film started with a 48 percent rating and then went up to 51 percent. Not a great look for Warner Bros.
Justice League #rottentomatoes score is 48% - it is unhidden on the Flixter app. Oops.#JusticeLeague #flop@Variety @VanityFair @wellshwood @THR @BuzzFeed @BuzzFeedNews @HPLifestyle @businessinsider @Techmeme @Gizmodo @DrewMcWeeny pic.twitter.com/rHVCZvZuxn— Pursuitist (@Pursuitist) November 15, 2017
The studio was banking on "JL" to help rejuvenate their struggling DC Extended Universe. 2016's "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" scored an abysmal 27 percent on Rotten Tomatoes. "Suicide Squad" fared even worse at 26 percent.
The review embargo on "Justice League" lifted late Tuesday night but most fans are probably waiting to check those out after they see the movie this weekend. Now of course, a score is just a score, but when it comes to the DCEU critics and fans seem to be on the same page.
