Forums - Movies Discussion - Time Warner Beats Q4 Expectations Thanks To ‘Justice League,’ Turner And HBO

Time Warner, whose corporate fate will be known in the coming weeks, reported better-than-expected fourth-quarter earnings due to Justice League box office and continued growth at Turner and HBO.

Total revenue grew 9% from the year-ago quarter to $8.6 billion. Operating income increased 13% to $1.9 billion.

Justice League, a November release which capped off a record-setting 2017 for the studio, has pulled in $656 million worldwide.

As it awaits the outcome of the Department of Justice’s lawsuit against AT&T seeking to block its acquisition of Time Warner, the company skipped the customary conference call with Wall Street analysts to discuss the quarterly results. In the earnings press release, CEO Jeff Bewkes touted both the quarterly and the full-year numbers, saying the company had met all of its performance targets.

I believe Justice League was expected to break even at 650 million, so it was not great and was not a bomb either. Could have been a lot worse with what happened with production.

Hope Ben stays and they keep making them better. Darkseid, Wonder Woman 2, Flash movie and Aquaman are still needed before they get new actors I hope.

Ashamed of helping with that. I think I should stop watching Justice League movies until they've proven themselves.



This anti DC crap has to stop. I enjoyed justice league very much. They just have to fix their endings, they tend to be so anticlimactic.



It takes genuine talent to see greatness in yourself despite your absence of genuine talent.

I mean obviously it's up, it doesn't mean the movie didn't disappoint compared to expectations.

I enjoyed Justice League much more than any of the other films I've seen from their DCEU except maybe Wonder Woman. I think people are too hard on it, personally.



I am currently sigless.

I liked it as well. Did I like it more than Thor 3? By no means. It was still a good movie with not as many issues as BvS. 

I hope they build on it a lot and the sales need to go up. Would help if it doesn't cost 300 million dollars, there is one director and it does not get edited to hell.
