Far From Home Closes in on Captain Marvel

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. With 2018’s films wrapped up, we’ve turned our focus squarely on 2019.


This past weekend, Spider-Man: Far From Home earned an estimated $665,000. The movie’s domestic total now stands at $389.2 million. Over the week, the film added about $750,000 internationally to bring that total to $739.1 million. Worldwide, the film has earned $1.127 billion. It’s now less than $1 million away from Captain Marvel‘s total of $1.128 billion. It’ll be a week or two but the film will likely pass it and become the ninth highest-grossing comic adaptation worldwide.

The Kitchen, based on the Vertigo comic miniseries, continues to struggle at the box office but it’s earning dollars. Over the week, the film earned about $85,000 domestically for the week and $300,000 internationally. The movie has brought in just over $12 million domestically, $3 million internationally, and over $15 million worldwide. That’s far short of the $37 million reported budget. It’s also the worst-performing comic adaptation of the year.

Avengers: Endgame is still bringing in money after 21 weeks. The movie earned about $8,000 domestically over the week to bring that total to $858.4 million. Along with its $1.938 billion internationally, the film has grossed $2.796 billion worldwide.

There’s a chance it’ll pass that film’s total before the week is up.

The Kitchen, based on the Vertigo comic miniseries, continues to struggle at the box office but it’s earning dollars. The film earned $180,000 domestically for the week and nothing internationally. The movie has brought in just shy of $12 million domestically, $2.7 million internationally, and $14.7 million worldwide. That’s far short of the $37 million reported budget.

The Kitchen is Toast While Far From Home Keeps Swinging

The Kitchen

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. With 2018’s films wrapped up, we turn our focus squarely on 2019.


The Kitchen, based on the Vertigo comic miniseries, continues to struggle at the box office. The film fell off the weekend box office chart in its third week. That’s not a good sign and indicates the film only has a few more weeks at the box office before being pulled completely. Still, the film earned $1.1 million domestically for the week and $1.8 million internationally. The movie has brought in $11.4 million domestically, $2.1 million internationally, and $13.5 million worldwide. That’s far short of the $37 million reported budget. It’s also the worst-performing comic adaptation of the year.

This past weekend, Spider-Man: Far From Home #15 for the weekend earning an estimated $1.7 million domestically to bring its total to $379.7 million. The movie also earned $10 million internationally over the week to raise that total to $736 million. Worldwide the film stands at $1.116 billion. It’s $13 million behind Captain Marvel and there’s a chance it’ll pass that film’s worldwide gross before its theatrical run is over.

Avengers: Endgame is still bringing in money after 18 weeks. The movie came in at #33 and adding $50,000 to its domestic total to bring that to $858.2 million. Over the week, the film added $220,000 to its international total. Domestically it has earned $858.2 million, internationally it has earned $1.938 billion, and a worldwide total of $2.796 billion.

The Kitchen Continues to Circle the Drain as 2018 Wraps Up

The Kitchen

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. With 2018’s films wrapped up, we turn our focus squarely on 2019. We’ll have a deep dive into 2018 later today. But, on to 2019!

Coming in at #13 this past weekend, the film dropped 60.1% in its second weekend earning an estimated $2.2 million to bring its domestic total to $10.4 million. It barely doubled its domestic total over the week. The movie has also earned around $252,000 at the international box office. With a $38 million budget, the movie will have to fight to earn its production value back. It’s currently the worst performing comic film of 2019 in all measurements.

This past weekend, Spider-Man: Far From Home came in at #12 earning an estimated $2.8 million to bring its domestic total to $376.6 million.

Avengers: Endgame is still bringing in money after 17 weeks. Coming in at #25 it added $98,000 to its domestic total. The film stands at $858.1 million domestically. Over the week, the film earned $480,000 internationally. It has earned $1.938 internationally for a worldwide total of $2.796 billion.
