There was a backlash that resulted in negative comments on Rotten Tomatoes. However, that didn’t stop the film from having a big opening as well as a successful month. With the weekend over, the film has earned another estimated $35 million in the U.S., with the worldwide total being $910 million. It’s definitely looking like it’ll cross the $1 billion mark.
