Dwayne Johnson praises fans following the release of “Black Adam” to $67 million at the domestic box office and $140 million worldwide. The film now marks Johnson’s biggest box office opening in the United States as a leading man. While “Black Adam” has been widely criticized by film critics (Rotten Tomatoes’ score is 39% out of a review of 219), audiences seem to respond more favorably. Johnson has repeatedly touted the film’s 90% audience score on Rotten Tomatoes, the “highest audience score for a DC theatrical film” since Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy.
Johnson wrote on Twitter: “Big thanks to fans for our amazing 90% audience score for ‘Black Adam.’ The highest audience score for a DC theatrical movie since ‘The Dark Knight.'” As always, the fans are the most important and we are always committed to giving it to them. So be sure to stay until the end of the credits.”
Earlier in the weekend, Johnson described the audience’s 90% score for “Black Adam” as “very satisfying for so many reasons,” adding, “Thank you so much for all the love and support. In the end, the only thing that matters to me is sending people to The house is happy. And that is what I will always fight for.”
Johnson repeatedly told fans before “Black Adam” opened in theaters that it would change the world of DC movies forever. Speaking to CinemaBlend earlier this month, the actor said that changing DC means finally listening to fans.
“I’ve been saying for some time,” Johnson said, “a new era in the DC Universe is about to begin.” “What I really meant, “This is a new era in the DC Universe,” is to listen to the fans. And we do our best to give the fans what they want.”
“I was waiting for someone to come up and address the fans and say, ‘Hey, we hear you,’” Johnson added. “So finally, after many months turned into many years, we ended up with what we are. The goal and intention now is this new age, the new age. Now let’s build. “
Black Adams received largely negative reviews from critics, who called it “repetitive” and “anti-entertainment.” In a fairly favorable review of diverseChief film critic Peter Debruge admitted that “the whole point of the film is to give Black Adam a proper big introduction on the assumption that he will face a more deserving opponent soon enough”.
Black Adam plays in theaters across the country.
