The Kitchen is Toast While Far From Home Keeps Swinging

The Kitchen

Comic film adaptations are big dollars and we track how they do each week to see trends and what’s working and what’s not. With 2018’s films wrapped up, we turn our focus squarely on 2019.


The Kitchen, based on the Vertigo comic miniseries, continues to struggle at the box office. The film fell off the weekend box office chart in its third week. That’s not a good sign and indicates the film only has a few more weeks at the box office before being pulled completely. Still, the film earned $1.1 million domestically for the week and $1.8 million internationally. The movie has brought in $11.4 million domestically, $2.1 million internationally, and $13.5 million worldwide. That’s far short of the $37 million reported budget. It’s also the worst-performing comic adaptation of the year.

This past weekend, Spider-Man: Far From Home #15 for the weekend earning an estimated $1.7 million domestically to bring its total to $379.7 million. The movie also earned $10 million internationally over the week to raise that total to $736 million. Worldwide the film stands at $1.116 billion. It’s $13 million behind Captain Marvel and there’s a chance it’ll pass that film’s worldwide gross before its theatrical run is over.

Avengers: Endgame is still bringing in money after 18 weeks. The movie came in at #33 and adding $50,000 to its domestic total to bring that to $858.2 million. Over the week, the film added $220,000 to its international total. Domestically it has earned $858.2 million, internationally it has earned $1.938 billion, and a worldwide total of $2.796 billion.
