Haters may hate, but Dwayne Johnson laughs to the bank. His entry into the DC Extended Universe, Black Adamsmashed through the box office like Johnson’s mystically powered antihero through walls, earning $7.6 million from previews at 3,500 locations across the country.

This is a new personal high for Johnson, easily one of the biggest and most marketable action stars in the world. The new brand surpasses its previous preview performances and stands out Fast & Furious 6 ($7.5 million), Hobbs and Shaw ($5.8 million), Jumanji: The next level ($4.7 million), san andreas ($3.1 million) and Rampage ($2.4 million). The high level of acceptance bodes well for the latest DCEU vehicle and suggests that the burgeoning franchise might just have some super strong legs despite a somewhat tepid critical reception.

The newest DC tentpole, which follows Johnson’s title character, aka Teth-Adam, as he awakens from being imprisoned in a rock tomb for millennia, received less than stellar reviews from most critics, but when it was released to the general public, Audience reactions ranged from fair to enthusiastic, raising the film’s audience rating to a respectable 88 percent on Rotten Tomatoes.

The film appears to be on track to gross $60 million in its first weekend. Definitely a little lower than the $70 million originally forecast, though Black Adama DC tentpole with all the requisite bells, whistles, and not-so-secret cameos of an A-list superhero movie has a good chance of defying its harsh critics for this weekend, if not the entire run.

Black Adam is currently in cinemas. You can read We Got This Covered’s review of the film here.
