Rotten Tomatoes Holds Justice League Score… and Reviews

The general press embargo for reviews of the film is 2:50 AM Wednesday morning.

Rotten Tomatoes bills itself as "the leading online aggregator of movie and TV show reviews from professional critics" on its company website.

There's no word on whether Warner Bros. had any influence on the Rotten Tomatoes rating delay, but it should be noted that the studio has an ownership stake in Fandango, Rotten Tomatoes' parent company. Links to reviews typically are available ahead of most movie releases.

Thus far, the reviews for Justice League have been kinder than some expected.

This move is officially being made as promotion for Rotten Tomatoes' new See It/Skip It show on Facebook, in which RT will officially unveil the score for new releases.

I know a lot of fans were expecting rally good things from Justice League - including myself - especially after how good Wonder Woman was, but Justice League is basically the third part of Zack Snyder's trilogy, following Batman vs. Superman and Man of Steel, with both of those movies not performing up to expectations as well.

If you're hoping Rotten Tomatoes will tell you whether or not you need to see Justice League, you probably won't be buying advance tickets.

The late review embargo lift doesn't bode well for Justice League, which has been mired in behind-the-scenes changes and overhauls after extensive reshoots overseen by Joss Whedon.

"Given the complicated setup of media conglomerates, it's not possible to draw a straight line between that fact and the delay of the Tomatometer score for 'Justice League, '" said Vox writer Alissa Wilkinson.

Warner going to extremes to prevent reviews of the DC ensemble flick from getting out ahead of the film's release at limited screenings on November 16.

What they're really anxious about is the audience who will be turned off by just one number: the Rotten Tomatoes score. All the same, it looks like Justice League won't be a critical darling in the vein of Wonder Woman.
