Joker Winds Down Its Run and a Record-Setting Year
Joker dropped 77.4% to come in at #21 with an estimated $140,000. The film’s domestic total now stands at $333.5 million. This weekend’s total was far less domestically than last week’s $465,000. Internationally, the film added $600,000 over the week, down from last week’s $4 million. It’s clear the film’s run is quickly winding down. But, the movie’s $1.061 billion is an amazing haul for a movie whose budget was just $55 million. It caps off a record-setting year for film’s based on comics. We’ll have more coverage of those details when Joker‘s run is complete.
The movie is currently ranked #11 in worldwide total for a comic adaptation. It’s about $20.3 million from passing The Dark Knight Rises and will crack the top ten at that point. It’s unlikely to do so but you never know.
When it comes to DC films, it’s a most interesting one. The film is marching along and is unlikely to pass Aquaman‘s domestic total by the time its domestic run is over:
|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 19.29x 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 $1.006 billion.
Here’s where 2019’s comic films stand as far as the actual numbers.
