Joker Cracks the Top 15. Far From Home Keeps Swinging
Joker came in second place at the weekend box office adding an estimated $13.9 million to its domestic total a 27.7% drop from the previous weekend.
Over the week, the film earned nearly $22 million domestically and $63 million at the international box office.
The film has earned $299.6 million in total domestically. The movie has also earned $634.4 million at the international box office bringing its worldwide total to $934 million making the elusive $1 billion box office within reach. With just a $55 million budget, the film is one of the most profitable of the year.
The film is now ranked #13 in worldwide grosses for a film based on a comic property. It needs to cross the billion-dollar mark to move higher in the rankings.
Joker is also the second highest-grossing DC Universe film of the modern era (post-Man of Steel) worldwide. 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 fifth 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 $43,000 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.
