Joker Sets Records While The Kitchen Limps Along

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.


Joker

It was a given that Joker would top the weekend box office but a record-setting weekend wasn’t a given for the R-rated film.

Joker was the top film domestically and earned $234 million worldwide. With an estimated $93.5 million, the film had the largest October domestic opening ever. It beat Venom which earned $80.25 million. Justice League earned $93.8 million when it opened in November 2017 and when final receipts are in Joker could top that.

The film also earned the fourth largest domestic opening ever for an R-rated film. Its preview grosses of $13.3 million was also a record for October preview grosses.

The audience gave the film a “B+” CinemaScore with those under 35 giving it an “A-“. On various rating sites, the film enjoyed good reviews, especially from audiences.

Internationally, the film debuted in 73 markets where it earned $140.5 million. The film opens in France and Germany later this week.

This past week, Spider-Man: Far From Home earned an estimated $360,000 domestically. The movie’s domestic total now stands at $390.2 million. Internationally, the film added about $200,000 to its total. Internationally, the film has earned $740.9 million. Worldwide, the film has earned $1.131 billion. Having passed Captain Marvel, the movie would need to earn a bit less than $17 million to pass Aquaman in worldwide grosses.

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 $20,000 domestically for the week. It also earned $200,000 at the international box office. The movie has brought in just over $12.2 million domestically, $3.6 million internationally, and about $15.8 million worldwide. That’s far short of the $37 million reported budget. It’s also the worst-performing comic adaptation of the year.

2019 is the tale of two films for Warner Bros. Where they’ve found success in Joker, The Kitchen has been the exact opposite.

The likely reason for the film’s lagging box office is that it failed to attract women. Women tend to be the majority audience for horror films but It: Chapter Two only saw 47% of the audience being female compared to the first’s 51%. The audience was also a bit older with 67% being aged 25 or older compared to 65% for the first film. The movie did get a “B+” CinemaScore, the same as the first film.

Angel Has Fallen earned an estimated $6 million to come in second place. After three weeks, the film has earned just shy of $53.5 million.

In third place was Good Boys which added an estimated $5.4 million to its total to bring its domestic total to $66.8 million. It also added $2.3 million from 28 international markets to bring that total to $15.6 million and a worldwide total of $82.4 million.

The Lion King was in fourth place after eight weeks at the box office. The film earned an estimated $4.2 million. It also added $13.4 million internationally. The film has earned $529.1 million domestically, $1.070 billion internationally, and $1.599 billion worldwide.

Rounding out the top five was Overcomer which brought in an estimated $3.8 million to bring the $5 million dollar film’s domestic total to $24.7 million.

In comic films…

Spider-Man: Far From Home dipped after last week’s bump coming in at #13 for the weekend. The film added $1.2 million to its total to bring that to $388.1 million.
