Avengers: Endgame Passes the $700 million Mark, 2018’s Releases Continue to Bring in the Dollars

Comic film adaptations are big dollars and we track how they do each week to see trends and what’s working and what’s not.

2018 is a record setting year for comic film adaptations. It has topped 2017’s record year and then some. Currently, comic adaptations have earned $2.697 billion domestically, $4.561 billion internationally, $7.258 billion worldwide, with a “profit” of $6.047 billion. That’s off of 10 films. 2017, with 16 films, saw domestic earnings of $2.365 billion, international earnings of $3.755 billion, worldwide earnings of $6.120 billion, and “profits” of $4.442 billion.

While 2018’s films are winding down as far as earnings, they’re still not done!


Avengers: Endgame has won the weekend box office for a third time in a row with an estimated $63.1 million. That brings the domestic total for the film to $723.5 million making it only the third film ever to cross $700 million. It now stands as the third highest grossing domestic release of all-time passing fellow Marvel Cinematic FilmBlack Panther.

Internationally, the film added #102.3 million to bring that total to $1.762 billion. It’s the second highest grossing film internationally behind Avatar‘s $2.027 billion.

Worldwide, the film stands at $2.485 billion putting it a little over $300 million away from overtaking Avatar as the top grossing film ever. That film earned $2.788 billion. There’s a good chance the film will eventually be number one and most likely will take a month’s time, though it may be tight as the summer box office really kicks off and competition rolls out.

Captain Marvel dropped from #5 last week to come in at #10 adding $1.8 million to its domestic total after 10 weeks. The film has earned $423.8 million so far. The film is about $24 million behind Aquaman but most likely won’t pass it.

Shazam! dropped from #8 last week to #12 this past weekend adding $1.1 million to its domestic total to bring that to $137.1 million after six weeks. The film ranks #60 in all-time worldwide earnings for a comic based film. It’s about $12 million behind Captain America: The First Avenger which ranks #59.

With a budget of just $100 million, the film has an average gross to the budget for a DC Cinematic film and will likely remain in the middle of the pack for that. It remains the lowest grossing big-budget DCU film so far and is unlikely to change that.

Alita: Battle Angel didn’t rank in the weekend box office but earned an estimated $20,000 over the week to bring its domestic total to $85.7 million. The film also earned about $21,000 over the past week internationally to increase that total to $319.1 million and $404.8 million worldwide.

Hellboy continued to not rank on the weekend box office but over the week earned about $104,000 domestically to bring that total to $21.8 million.

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse didn’t chart this past week but earned $80,000 internationally to bring that to $185.2 million. With a domestic earning of $190.2 million the worldwide total is $375.4 million.

Aquaman brought in some money over the past week adding about $100,000 to its international total to bring that to $812.7 million. The film has earned $1.148 billion worldwide.


Here’s where this year’s comic films stand as far as the actual numbers.

Total Domestic Gross: $2.697 billion
Total International Gross: $4.561 billion
Worldwide Gross: $7.258 billion
Total Reported Budgets: $1.187 billion
Total “Profit”: $6.047 billion

Average Domestic Gross: $269.7 million
Average International Gross: $456.1 million
Average: Worldwide Gross: $725.8 million
Average Budget: $131.9 million
Average Profit: $671.9 million

Avengers: Endgame Wins the Weekend While Detective Pikachu Sets a Record

Avengers: Endgame

Avengers: Endgame has won the weekend box office for a third time in a row with an estimated $63.1 million.

It now stands as the third highest grossing domestic release of all-time passing fellow Marvel Cinematic Film, Black Panther.

Detective Pikachu debuted a strong second with an estimated $58 million. That’s the largest opening weekend for a video game adaptation ever beating Lara Croft Tomb Raider‘s $47.7 million back in 2001. The film earned an “A-” CinemaScore.

Rounding out the top five was Long Shot which also did well only dipping 37%. It earned an estimated $6.1 million over the three days.

In other comic news…

We’ll be back in an hour for a deeper dive in to 2018 and 2019’s comic film releases.

Movie Review: Detective Pikachu – Classic Noir Meets Video Game Fun

Detective Pikachu

Pokemon has been a major cultural force for over two decades now, but other than a few animated films, it has never really broken into the cinematic realm. And then there’s the “video game curse” which has turned even the best video games into cinematic dog crap. But Detective Pikachu defies all the odds and is really good. Focusing on character and plot– borrowing its best bits from detective noir classics of the past– and letting the video game content play as the setting was the smartest choice writer and director Rob Letterman. He seems happy to borrow liberally from the video game but then also makes the film very much its own thing that everyone can enjoy.

Why is it that so many video game movies are cursed to be terrible. It’s the medium that often makes it hard (though not impossible) to adapt to film. A good movie needs great characters, and especially needs a lead “POV” character that is the audience’s “way in” to the world of the film. We see the events unfold more or less through their eyes, and these characters usually have the most depth, development, and the best character arcs.

In a video game, the POV character is. . . you. Video games not only get away with, but encourage, more bland player characters– because they’re supposed to be bland aka “universal” so everyone who is playing the game can feel like they are actually taking the place of Mario or Sonic or even more developed player characters like a Cloud Strife or Leon Kennedy. Even if the point is playing through that player character’s story, like as Shepherd in Mass Effect or Revan in Knights of the Old Republic, or any of the characters in Detroit: Become Human, it’s more like you’re playing an interactive movie than a standard video game. Even Lara Croft didn’t really become an interesting “character” per se until her most recent games, which then became very literally adapted on the screen– which is what made last year’s Tomb Raider work and break the video game curse.

As I noted in that review, the question is always, “Would I have rather watched this movie or spent two hours playing the game?” In the case of Detective Pikachu, you definitely want to watch the movie.

A lot of that comes from the performances of its leads, which includes Ryan Reynolds as the eponymous talking gumshoe pokemon mascot and Justice Smith as Tim Goodman. Goodman in the game was literally just your avatar (Good-man, get it?) but Smith does a great job imbuing him with pathos and having fun. A scene in the middle of the film where he has to interrogate a Mr. Mime by using pantomime is incredibly funny, but mostly he does his job of being our POV character and leading us through this new world of Ryme City.

The city is brainchild of billionaire Howard Clifford (an incredibly fun Bill Nighy), it’s a city where humans and pokemon exist side by side. Visually and aesthetically it seems to smash together the best parts of New York, Tokyo, and maybe a little bit of Bladerunner‘s Los Angeles and Tim Burton’s version of Gotham City in his 1989 Batman. But what’s most fun about it are all of the Pokemon easter eggs hidden in almost every scene. You could play a “Gotta catch ’em all” type game where you name off every type that you see and that would be fun enough in and of itself.

But this movie also has a plot, and it’s also quite engaging. Tim Goodman comes to the city upon learning of his estranged father’s death from his former partner, Lieutenant Hide Yoshida (Ken Watanabe). Tim goes to clean out his father’s old apartment and finds an overly caffeinated talking Pikachu with a case of amnesia but a nose for a mystery. You know he’s a detective because of his hat! The Pikachu is convinced Tim’s father is still alive and they need to track him down. Along the way, they discover a conspiracy involving illegal drugs, underground Pokemon fighting rings, and a mysterious MewTwo who we see briefly in the opening of the film who may be the key to all of it.

It’s a pretty great mystery. And while it moves along quickly enough for little kids, it will still be engaging for adults. Also engaging for adults? Some of the dirtier jokes that might fly over kids’ heads. In this way, the film that this most reminds me of is Who Framed Roger Rabbit?

Film noir type detective story? Check. Frenetic jokes and a high energy lead? Check. Corporate intrigue and conspiracies? Check. Betrayals, twists, turns? Check. Strategic cameos and blink-and-you’ll-miss-it placement of beloved cartoon characters? Check!

The only thing missing here is the more perfected animation style of Roger Rabbit. One minor complaint is that some of the pokemon may not look exactly like either their video game or animated versions– the charizard and gyarados models specifically are a little off– but most of this is spot on and lots of fun. My Pokemon-obsessed ten year old son (the target audience for this) freaked out when they went into Clifford’s office and he had giant wooden statues of Dialga, Palkia, and Giratina. If you know who those are, this movie is going to make you very happy.

This is the perfect dessert sorbet to clear your palate after the heaviness of Avengers: Endgame. It’s light and fun but also has some deeper elements. If you took classics like Double Indemnity and The Third Man and added a billion cute little pocket monsters into it, you’d have this. And it is delightful. Even if you are meh on Pokemon and have never played a game, this is a lot of fun.

Jason Spisak (Young Justice) heads the rogues’ gallery as the voice of Red Hood (and Jason Todd). Also along for the fun are actors Steve Blum (Cowboy Bebop, Star Wars Rebels) as Scarecrow, Zach Callison (Steven Universe) as Billy Batson, Cam Clarke (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) as Brother Eye & Bat Computer, Will Friedle (Boy Meets World, Kim Possible) as Nightwing, Ralph Garman (Family Guy) as Wizard, Jake Green (The Boss Baby: Back in Business) as Fred, Josh Keaton (The Spectacular Spider-Man) as Board Member, Tom Kenny (SpongeBob SquarePants) as Gordon & Penguin, Christian Lanz (Elena of Avalor) as Two-Face/Harvey Dent, Nolan North (Young Justice) as Alfred & Killer Croc, Andre Sogliuzza (American Dad!) as Riddler, Tara Strong (Batman: The Animated Series, Teen Titans, Teen Titans Go!) as Batwoman and Fred Tatasciore (DC Super Hero Girls) as Solomon Grundy.

Two Production Companies Take a Stand Against Georgia’s Abortion Law

Keep Abortion Safe and Legal

David Simon‘s Blown Deadline Productions and Killer Films CEO Christine Vachon have both pledged to no longer shoot in Georgia so long as their “heartbeat bill” aka abortion ban stands as legislation.

The legislation was signed in to law on Tuesday by Republican Gov. Bill Kemp and bans abortion after a heartbeat is detected which can be as early as six weeks. There are exceptions to save the life of the mother or for rape and incest but only if a woman files a police report. Most don’t. The law goes in to effect in January.

Some have threatened to pull production from the state if the bill was signed in to law and at least two in Hollywood are standing by their word.

The MPAA isn’t taking much of a stand as they have said they are watching the courts to see what the final outcome is. A similar law in North Dakota in 2016 was overturned by the Supreme Court but with a right-wing shift of the court, it’s unknown if that decision may change if it goes before the court again

Georgia has tax incentives of up to 30 percent back which brought in 455 productions to the state last year with $2.7 billion in direct spending. There’s about 92,000 jobs in Georgia for film and production.

The Walking Dead, Ozark, and Stranger Things all shoot there and Marvel has used Pinewood Studios in Atlanta for some of their film productions.

DC Showcase Delivers New Animated Shorts Starting with Sgt. Rock

Warner Bros. Animation and Warner Bros. Home Entertainment, in partnership with DC, are in production on five new DC Showcase animated shorts for release in 2019-2020.

Inspired by characters and stories from DC’s robust portfolio, the all-new series of shorts will be included on upcoming DC Universe Movies releases, with exception of an innovative Batman: Death in the Family long-form animated short, which will anchor a compilation set for distribution in late 2020.

Each of the five shorts – entitled Sgt. Rock, Adam Strange, Death, The Phantom Stranger, and Batman: Death in the Family – opens with a new, live-action branding sequence that features a few Easter Eggs specially added for observant fans.

DC Showcase Sgt. Rock

Sgt. Rock is executive produced and directed by Bruce Timm (Batman: The Animated Series) from a script by award-winning comics writers Louise Simonson, Walter Simonson and Tim Sheridan (Reign of the Supermen). The original tale finds battle-weary Sgt. Rock thinking he has seen everything that World War II can dish out. But he is in for the surprise of his life when he is assigned to lead a company consisting of legendary monsters into battle against an unstoppable platoon of Nazi zombies. Karl Urban (Star Trek & Lord of the Rings film franchises) provides the voice of Sgt. Rock. Also voicing characters in Sgt. Rock are Keith Ferguson, William Salyers, and Audrey Wasilewski.

Adam Strange is produced and directed by Butch Lukic (Batman Unlimited franchise), who also conceived the original story – which is written by J.M. DeMatteis (Constantine: City of Demons). On a rugged asteroid mining colony, few of the toiling workers are aware that their town drunk was ever anything but an interplanetary derelict. But when the miners open a fissure into the home of a horde of deadly alien insects, his true identity is exposed. He is space adventurer Adam Strange, whose heroic backstory is played out in flashbacks as he struggles to save the very people who have scorned him for so long. Charlie Weber (How To Get Away with Murder) provides the voice of Adam Strange, alongside with Roger R. Cross, Kimberly Brooks, Ray Chase, and Fred Tatasciore.

Inspired by Neil Gaiman’s “The Sandman,” Death is produced and directed by Sam Liu (Justice League vs. The Fatal Five) and written by J.M. DeMatteis (Batman: Bad Blood). In the story, Vincent, an artist with unresolved inner demons, meets a mysterious girl who helps him come to terms with his creative legacy … and eventual death. Leonardo Nam (Westworld) provides the voice of Vincent, and Jamie Chung (The Gifted, Big Hero 6) is the voice of Death. The cast includes Darin De Paul, Keith Szarabajka, and Kari Wahlgren.

The Phantom Stranger has Bruce Timm (Batman: The Killing Joke) at the helm as executive producer and director, and the short is written by Ernie Altbacker (Teen Titans: The Judas Contract). Set in the 1970s, the short follows young adult Jess as she joins her friends at a party in a dilapidated mansion hosted by the mysterious Seth. When odd things begin to happen to Jess and her friends, the Phantom Stranger intervenes to save her from a dreary fate. Peter Serafinowicz (The Tick) gives voice to The Phantom Stranger, and Michael Rosenbaum (Smallville, Impastor) provides the voice of Seth. The Phantom Stranger also features the voices of Natalie Lander, Grey Griffin, and Roger Craig Smith.

More information regarding Batman: Death In The Family will be available in 2020.

All five new DC Showcase shorts credits include Jim Krieg as co-producer, Amy McKenna as producer, and Sam Register as executive producer.

Initially launched in 2010, DC Showcase was originally comprised of four animated shorts produced by Bruce Timm and directed by Joaquim Dos Santos: The Spectre (released on 2/23/2010), Jonah Hex (7/27/2010), Green Arrow (9/28/2010) and Superman/Shazam: The Return of Black Adam (11/9/2010). An additional short, Catwoman (10/18/2011), was attached the following year to the release of Batman: Year One, and was directed by Lauren Montgomery and executive produced by Bruce Timm. Screenwriters on the initial quintet were Steve Niles (The Spectre), Joe Lansdale (Jonah Hex), Greg Weisman (Green Arrow), Michael Jelenic (Superman/Shazam: The Return of Black Adam) and Paul Dini (Catwoman).

Actors featured on the first five shorts were Malcolm McDowell, James Garner (in his final performance), Jerry O’Connell, Linda Hamilton, Gary Cole, Alyssa Milano, Thomas Jane, Michael Rooker, Eliza Dushku, Neal McDonough, Ariel Winter, Danica McKeller, George Newbern, Michelle Trachtenberg and Arnold Vosloo, as well as Jon Polito, Rob Paulsen, Jeff Bennett, Steve Blum, Grey Delisle, John DiMaggio, Josh Keaton, Zach Callison, Jason Marsden, Liliana Mumy, Tara Strong, Cree Summer and Kevin Michael Richardson.

Avengers: Endgame Dominates Again While Shazam! Passes First Class

Comic film adaptations are big dollars and we track how they do each week to see trends and what’s working and what’s not.

2018 is a record setting year for comic film adaptations. It has topped 2017’s record year and then some. Currently, comic adaptations have earned $2.697 billion domestically, $4.561 billion internationally, $7.258 billion worldwide, with a “profit” of $6.047 billion. That’s off of 10 films. 2017, with 16 films, saw domestic earnings of $2.365 billion, international earnings of $3.755 billion, worldwide earnings of $6.120 billion, and “profits” of $4.442 billion.

While 2018’s films are winding down as far as earnings, they’re still not done!


Its taken just eleven days for Avengers: Endgame to become the second highest grossing worldwide release of all-time. The film has earned $2.189 billion total on its march to topple Avatar‘s $2.788 billion from the top spot. Avatar took 47 days to reach $2 billion.

The filmed earned an estimated $145.8 million over the weekend which is just shy of $149.2 million record setting second weekend of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. It is possible this will change once final numbers are released.

The film has earned $619.7 million domestically making it the top grossing film of the year and it currently ranks #9 for all time lifetime domestic gross.

Internationally, the film added $282 million to bring that total to $1.569 billion, 71.7% of its earnings.

Rounding out the weekend top five was Captain Marvel which earned an estimated $4.2 million pushing its domestic total $420.8 million and it also earned an estimated $1.2 million internationally to drive that number to $699.3 million and $1.120 billion total. The film is about $26.6 million behind Aquaman.

Shazam! came in at #8 this past weekend, dropping from last week’s #5, earning an estimated $2.5 million to bring its domestic total to $135.2 million. It passed X-Men: First Class and a few other films and now ranks #60 for worldwide earnings.

With a budget of just $100 million, the film has an average gross to the budget for a DC Cinematic film and will likely remain in the middle of the pack for that. It remains the lowest grossing big-budget DCU film so far and is unlikely to change that.

Alita: Battle Angel improved from last week’s #35 to come in at #34 earning an estimated $21,000 to bring its domestic total to $85.7 million. The film also earned about $300,000 over the past week internationally to increase that total to $319 million and $404.7 million worldwide.

Hellboy dropped off the weekend box office listing but earned about $200,000 domestically to bring that total to $21.7 million.

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse didn’t chart this past week but earned $85,000 internationally to bring that to $185.1 million. With a domestic earning of $190.2 million the worldwide total is $375.3 million.

Uglydolls struggled coming in fourth place with an estimated $8.5 million and with a budget between $45-$53 million, the film will have to fight to turn a profit.
