Far From Home Challenges Captain Marvel

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’ve turned our focus squarely on 2019.


This past weekend, Spider-Man: Far From Home saw a dip after last weekend’s boost at the box office. The film came in at #13 at the domestic weekend box office. The film added $1.2 million over the weekend to its total to bring that to $388.1 million. It also added $2 million to its international total over the week. That total now stands at $738.2 million. Worldwide, the film has earned $1.126 billion. It’s now just $2 million behind Captain Marvel‘s worldwide total of $1.128 billion. There’s a chance it’ll pass that film’s total before the week is up.

The Kitchen, based on the Vertigo comic miniseries, continues to struggle at the box office but it’s earning dollars. The film earned $180,000 domestically for the week and nothing internationally. The movie has brought in just shy of $12 million domestically, $2.7 million internationally, and $14.7 million worldwide. That’s far short of the $37 million reported budget. It’s also the worst-performing comic adaptation of the year.

Avengers: Endgame is still bringing in money after 20 weeks. The movie came in at #42 with an estimated $12,000 to bring its domestic total to $858.4 million. Along with its $1.938 billion internationally, the film has grossed $2.796 billion worldwide.
