Joker Closes in on Iron Man 3
Joker‘s award bump has slowed down from the initial Golden Globe win but the movie is still doing well. With it already on-demand digitally, it’s unknown how much of an Oscar bump the film will get should it win.
Over the past week, the film earned $560,000 domestically which is a vast increase from the $100,000 it earned over the previous week. The film’s total now stands at $334.7 million.
Internationally, the film added $700,000 million over the week down from the previous week’s $2.3 million. It’s earned $735.7 million internationally.
The movie’s $1.070 billion is an amazing haul for a movie whose budget was just $55 million. It caps off a record-setting year for films based on comics.
The movie is currently ranked #11 in worldwide total for a comic adaptation. It’s about $10.6 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 it’s possible it will 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 a 19.46x 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 $1.015 billion. The film currently ranks #7 in that stat and is about $39,000 from passing Iron Man 3 in “grosses.” That film earned $1.215 billion and had a budget of $200 million.
Here’s where 2019’s comic films stand as far as the actual numbers.
Total Domestic Gross: $2.367 billion
Total International Gross: $4.958 billion
