Joker Cracks the Top 20
Joker dethroned Maleficent: Mistress of Evil to take the weekend box office. The film dipped just 35% from the previous weekend after four weeks. The film earned an estimated $18.9 million. Domestically, the movie has earned $277.6 million. Internationally, the film added $47.8 million to bring that total to $571.5 million. Worldwide, its total sits at $849.1 million and that’s without China. The film will likely pass the $900 million mark and there’s a chance it’ll cross the $1 billion mark as well, though that’s more difficult without China.
The film is now ranked #19 in worldwide grosses for a film based on a comic property. It needs just $4 million to pass Thor: Ragnarok and $7 million to pass last year’s Venom.
Joker is also the third highest-grossing DC Universe film of the modern era (post-Man of Steel) worldwide and will likely pass Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice to become second when it’s done. The movie’s success really comes from the international box-office where it has succeeded while most DC films stumble, Aquaman being the exception. It’s the second highest-grossing film at the international box office for a DC film. It’s the sixth highest-grossing film domestically, but will likely move into fifth by the time its domestic run is over.
Over the past week, Spider-Man: Far From Home earned an estimated $37,000 domestically and $220,000 internationally. The movie’s domestic total now stands at $390.5 million domestically and $741.3 million internationally. Worldwide, the film has earned $1.132 billion.
