Joker Dances Along as it Challenges Batman
Joker held steady at the weekend box office coming in at #10 adding an estimated $1.04 million to its domestic total bringing it to $332.1 million. Over the week, the film added about $5 million to its international total to bring that to $722.8 million. Worldwide, the film has earned $1.055 billion on a budget of just $55 million.
The movie is currently ranked #11 in worldwide total for a comic adaptation. It’s about $26 million from passing The Dark Knight Rises and will crack the top ten at that point.
When it comes to DC films, it’s a most interesting one. The film is marching along and will likely pass Aquaman‘s domestic total by the time its domestic run is over. And after the next couple of weeks, the film has a chance of winding up in second place as far as that statistic:
|Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice||WB||$330,360,194|
|Man of Steel||WB||$291,045,518|
|Teen Titans Go! To the Movies||WB||$29,790,236|
Joker has been doing quite well in international earnings where Warner Bros. has had issues in the past. Aquaman indicates a shift for the company and lessons seem to be continued with Joker.
|Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice||WB||$542,900,000|
|Man of Steel||WB||$377,000,000|
|Teen Titans Go! To the Movies||WB||$22,300,000|
The film is now one of the most profitable comic film adaptations of all time. With a reported budget of $55 million, the movie has an 19.18x return so far. That’s the highest factor for any movie based on a comic beating The Mask which was the previous leader with a 15.29x factor.
The film hasn’t earned the most compared to the budget, that record is held by Avengers: Endgame. Despite a $356 million budget, that movie earned a “profit” of $2.442 billion. Joker has cracked the top ten though having so far earned a “profit” of $999.9 million. The film will cross the $1 billion “profit” mark during this week.
