Can Joker Hit a Billion While Endgame and Shazam See Life


Joker dipped to second place in its third week. It dropped just 48% which is a strong performance of an estimated $29.2 million domestically. It has now earned $247.2 million at the domestic box office. Internationally, the film added $77.8 million for a foreign total of $490.3 million. Worldwide, the film has earned $737.5 million. With such success over three weeks, the question is if the film will cross the coveted $1 billion mark.

The film rocketed up the rankings of worldwide earnings for comic adaptations. Joker now ranks #28 up from #44 last week. The movie is $8.1 million away from passing Suicide Squad and $10.3 million from X-Men: Days of Future Past. After this week, the film will likely rank about #21 on the chart. When it comes to the modern DCU, the film has passed Man of Steel, Justice League, and Shazam. When it comes to the return on budget, it ranks as the top film for DC by over a factor of 2 from the next highest.

Over the past week, Spider-Man: Far From Home earned an estimated $85,000 internationally. The movie’s domestic total now stands at $390.4 million domestically and $741.0 million internationally. Worldwide, the film has earned $1.132 billion.

The Kitchen is almost done with its run at the box office. The film earned an estimated $100,000 internationally. The film has fallen short of making back its budget showing when it came to this kitchen, folks chose to ate out.

Two films saw life which might be just an adjustment. Avengers: Endgame added $1.5 million to its international total. Shazam! added $100,000 to its international total as well.
