Terminator: Dark Fate Takes the Weekend with a $28 Million Debut

Terminator: Dark Fate

The Terminator is back as Terminator: Dark Fate topped the weekend box office. The film earned an estimated $28 million which is just a hair better than 2015’s Terminator Genisys. The film received a “B+” CinemaScore and opened in 4,086 theaters. The film does have an impressive 70% on Rottentomatoes from critics and 85% approval from the audience so it’s not the quality of the film that’s the issue. It could be the franchise has a ceiling and audiences aren’t down for this nostalgia.

The movie has also earned $95.6 million from the foreign box office for a worldwide total of $123.6 million which is shy of the $185 million budget.

Terminator Genisys which opened to similar numbers went on to gross $89.8 million domestically, $350.8 million internationally, and $440.6 million worldwide.

In second place was Joker which added an estimated $13.9 million to its domestic total a 27.7% drop from the previous weekend. The film has earned $299.6 million 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.

Maleficent: Mistress of Evil dropped to third place with an estimated $12.2 million to bring its domestic total to $84.3 million.

In fourth place was Harriet which opened with an estimated $12 million. With a budget of just $17 million, it’s a solid opening for the film which debuted in just 2,059 theaters.

The Addams Family rounded out the top five adding an estimated $8.5 million domestically to its total to bring that to $85.3 million.

All totals will likely be adjusted and the above are just the initial estimates.

We’ll be back in an hour for a deeper dive into this year’s comic adaptations.

Joker Retakes the Weekend Box Office (Update)

Joker

Update: In the revised numbers for the weekend, Maleficent: Mistress of Evil took the top spot with $19.37 million while Joker remained in second with $19.25 million.

Countdown also took fourth with $8.9 million while Zombieland: Double Tap took fifth with $8.7 million.


Joker dethroned Maleficent: Mistress of Evil to take the weekend box office. The film dipped just 35% from the previous weekend after four weeks. The film earned an estimated $18.9 million. Domestically, the movie has earned $277.6 million. Internationally, the film added $47.8 million to bring that total to $571.5 million. Worldwide, its total sits at $849.1 million and that’s without China. The film will likely pass the $900 million mark and there’s a chance it’ll cross the $1 billion mark as well, though that’s more difficult without China.

Maleficent: Mistress of Evil dropped to second place dipping 49.8% in its second weekend. The film earned an estimated $18.5 million to bring that total to $65.4 million. Internationally, it added $64.3 million for a total of $228.1 million for a worldwide total near $294 million.

Rounding out the top five was Countdown which earned an estimated $9 million. The film cost just $6.5 million to make. It also debuted in 16 international markets and earned an estimated $1.7 million.

We’ll be back in an hour for a deeper dive into 2019’s comic films.

Maleficent: Mistress of Evil Wins the Weekend Box Office But Doesn’t Meet Expectations

Maleficent: Mistress of Evil

Maleficent: Mistress of Evil won the weekend box office with an estimated $36 million knocking Joker from the top spot. The earning was almost half of the $69.4 million of the original film. It was predicted to open in the mid-$40 million range. The film did get an “A” CinemaScre and is well-reviewed by audiences so it wasn’t the quality of the film itself that was the issue. The movie crowd was 56% female and 54% aged 25 or older. The original film was 60% female and a little younger.

Internationally, the film opened in all major markets earning $117 million bringing the worldwide total to $153 million.

Joker dipped to second place in its third week. It dropped just 48% which is a strong performance of an estimated $29.2 million domestically. It has now earned $247.2 million at the domestic box office. Internationally, the film added $77.8 million for a foreign total of $490.3 million. Worldwide, the film has earned $737.5 million. With such success over three weeks, the question is if the film will cross the coveted $1 billion mark.

Zombieland 2: Double Tap opened in third with a stronger than expected $26.7 million. It beat the original film which earned $24.7 million ten years ago. The film earned a “B+” CinemaScore and saw a crowd that was 57% male and 56% was aged 25 and older. That male demographic is an issue as it’s almost the opposite o the original film and horror films tend to do well with women.

Internationally, the film is playing in 17 markets and earned $5 million to bring that total to $5.3 million. It opens in Russia, Brazil, and Mexico this coming weekend with France on October 30, Germany on November 7, South Korea on November 13, Italy on November 14, and Japan on November 22.

The Addams Family earned an estimated $16.1 million in its second weekend to bring its domestic total to $56.8 million after ten days.

Rounding out the top five was Gemini Man which dropped 59% in its second weekend. The film earned $8.5 million to bring its domestic total to $36.5 million. Internationally, the film earned an estimated $33.4 million, the majority from China. The film’s international total is $82.2 million for a worldwide earning of $118.7 million.

We’ll be back in an hour for a deeper dive into 2019’s comic adaptations.
