‘DC League Of Super-Pets’ Takes Off With $2.2M In Previews

Warner Bros is looking to excite family audiences that have OD’ed on Minions: The Rise of Gru with a new animated movie this weekend, the Dwayne JohnsonKevin Hart voiced DC League of Super-Pets. Last night the Jared Stern-Sam Levine directed move made $2.2m in previews at 3,200 theaters.

Industry estimates earlier in the week have been optimistic for the film, seeing $25M-$30M at 4,300 sites which will easily assail DC League of Super-Pets to top of the weekend box office. That would be a super start considering Warner Bros.’ DC previous entry into the animated space, Teen Titans GO! To the Movies finaled its domestic run back in the summer of 2018 with $29.7M after a $10.4M opening. The comp here for DC League of Super-Pets is Universal/DreamWorks Animation’s spring animated pic The Bad Guys which opened to an $8M Friday, and 3-day of $23.95M after $1.15M in Thursday night previews, which Super-Pets easily beats.

The difference between the commercial results of Teen Titans and DC League of Super-Pets is that the latter is fueled by the combined social media promotional superpowers of Johnson and Hart which counts over 624M-plus followers across Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and TikTok.

The $89M production follows Krypto the Super-Dog, Superman’s dog (played by Johnson), who is tasked with recusing the Man of Steel along with Ace, voiced by Hart. The pic is also opening in 63 international territories, repping 76% of its box office potential. Major markets not going this weekend include South Korea, Japan, Italy and Australia.

DC League of Super-Pets counts a 71% fresh Rotten Tomatoes score, and though not in the 90 percentile range, middling reviews won’t keep families away from this Johnson and Hart family package.
