Where the Data Ranks 2018’s Comic Book Films. Aquaman Nabs Over $93 Million in China

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 shaping up to be a record setting year for comic film adaptations. It looks like it’ll top 2017’s record year and then some. Currently, comic adaptations have earned $2.165 billion domestically, $3.609 billion internationally, $5.773 billion worldwide, with a “profit” of $4.758 billion. That’s off of 5 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. 2018 still has Aquaman opening domestically and expanding internationally, and Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse yet to open, as well as the PG-13 recut of Deadpool 2, Once Upon a Deadpool. Those three should easily add another billion to this year’s total.

This past weekend Venom came in at #17 improving one spot from the previous weekend with an estimated $305,000 to bring its domestic total to $212.7 million. Internationally, the film added $7 million over the past week to bring that total to $638.6 million. There’s a chance the film will become the highest grossing “Spider-Man” film before its run is done and make it into the top ten superhero films of all time. The film also shows that budget isn’t everything. It has the best return in multiplier when it comes to budget for a comic film of 2018, so far. With 8.51x it beats Avengers: Infinity War‘s 6.83x and 6.73x for Black Panther.

With a budget of just $100 million, the film is quite profitable and another success for Sony’s Spider-Man franchise which previously earned on average $318.8 million domestically, $488.4 million internationally, and $807.2 million worldwide. The film is likely to be the second worst performing Spider-Man related film domestically for Sony but first currently internationally. The difference is the budget is almost half the other films allowing for a healthy profit. The film is leaning heavily on the international market where it has earned 75.01% of its earnings compared to 62.65% for other Spider-Man films.

Aquaman debuted in China two weeks ahead of the domestic release where it earning an impressive $93.6 million. That’s 85% of the total market share for the weekend in China and is the the studio’s largest opening weekend ever in China and the largest industry opening in the market in December. It expands internationally next weekend with 40+ more overseas market including the UK, Russia, Mexico, and Brazil.

Ant-Man and the Wasp didn’t chart for the weekend but still earned about $42,000 internationally over the past week. It now stands at $216.6 million domestically, $406 million internationally, and $622.6 million worldwide.

The film has not only passed the original domestically (both adjusted and not-adjusted for inflation) but it also has passed it internationally. The film should keeping adding dollars to its total for the next month and is above $100 million over the original. The sequel has a budget of about $32 million more than the original so it’ll need to that to even out profitability.

Avengers: Infinity War gained some dollars. Avengers: Infinity War added about $760,000 to its international earnings.

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

Where the Data Ranks 2018’s Comic Book Films. Venom Passes Deadpool 2 Worldwide

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 shaping up to be a record setting year for comic film adaptations. It looks like it’ll top 2017’s record year and then some. Currently, comic adaptations have earned $2.162 billion domestically, $3.446 billion internationally, $5.608 billion worldwide, with a “profit” of $4.686 billion. That’s off of 5 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. 2018 still has Aquaman and Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse yet to open as well as the PG-13 recut of Deadpool 2, Once Upon a Deadpool. Those three should easily add another billion to this year’s total.

Venom came in at #11 with an estimated $1.9 million over the weekend to bring its domestic total to $210 million. It also earned $103.2 million internationally over the week to bring that total to $570.5 and $780.5 million worldwide. The film passed Deadpool 2 to become the third highest grossing comic adaptation this year.

With a budget of just $100 million, the film is already looking like it’ll be quite profitable and another success for Sony’s Spider-Man franchise which previously earned on average $318.8 million domestically, $488.4 million internationally, and $807.2 million worldwide. The film is likely to be the second worst performing Spider-Man related film for Sony but 5th (out of 7) currently internationally. The difference is the budget is almost half the other films allowing for a healthy profit. In fact, the film’s multiplier is the best of any Spider-Man film and will likely pass Avengers: Infinity War, the year’s best comic film, before it’s done. This past week it passed Black Panther‘s multiplier. How well the film does after its massive debut in China will be interesting and the movie potentially has another $100 million left in it before its run is up.

Ant-Man and the Wasp didn’t chart for the weekend but still earned about $2,000 internationally over the past week. It now stands at $216.6 million domestically, $405.8 million internationally, and $622.5 million worldwide.

The film has not only passed the original domestically (both adjusted and not-adjusted for inflation) but it also has passed it internationally. The film should keeping adding dollars to its total for the next month and is above $100 million over the original. The sequel has a budget of about $32 million more than the original so it’ll need to that to even out profitability.

Avengers: Infinity War gained some dollars. Avengers: Infinity War added about $7,000 to its international earnings.

Where the Data Ranks 2018’s Comic Book Films. Venom Awaits Its China Debut

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 shaping up to be a record setting year for comic film adaptations. It looks like it’ll top 2017’s record year and then some. Currently, comic adaptations have earned $2.150 billion domestically, $3.218 billion internationally, $5.369 billion worldwide, with a “profit” of $4.447 billion. That’s off of 5 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. 2018 still has Aquaman and Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse yet to open as well as a mysterious Deadpool film and those three should easily add another billion to this year’s total.

Venom dropped from 3rd to 6th with an estimated $7.9 million, a drop of 26.3%. It now has earned $198.7 million domestically. Internationally the film added $15.6 million to bring that total to $342.9 million and $541.6 million worldwide. With China opening this coming weekend, the film will do quite well when its run is up and likely will end up earning an average amount for SONY’s Spider-Man films.

With a budget of just $100 million, the film is already looking like it’ll be quite profitable and another success for Sony’s Spider-Man franchise which previously earned on average $318.8 million domestically, $488.4 million internationally, and $807.2 million worldwide. It’s about average when it comes to domestic vs. international earning averages for previous films and that’s without a few major markets opening. It should swing to heavily favoring international earnings once China opens. The film’s budget though is less than half the average Spider-Man film which average $209.5 million. So, the film needs to make far less to be as profitable.

Ant-Man and the Wasp didn’t chart for the weekend but still earned about $26,000 domestically and $7,000 internationally over the past week. It now stands at $216.6 million domestically, $405.8 million internationally, and $622.5 million worldwide.

The film has not only passed the original domestically (both adjusted and not-adjusted for inflation) but it also has passed it internationally. The film should keeping adding dollars to its total for the next month and be somewhere above $100 million over the original when it’s all over. The sequel has a budget of about $32 million more than the original so it’ll need to that to even out profitability.

Avengers: Infinity War and Black Panther both gained some dollars. Avengers: Infinity War added about $6,000 to its international earnings. Black Panther added about $330 internationally.

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

Total Domestic Gross: $2.150 billion
Total International Gross: $3.218 billion

Where the Data Ranks 2018’s Comic Book Films. Venom Holds on to Third

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 shaping up to be a record setting year for comic film adaptations. It looks like it’ll top 2017’s record year and then some. Currently, comic adaptations have earned $2.139 billion domestically, $3.197 billion internationally, $5.336 billion worldwide, with a “profit” of $4.414 billion. That’s off of 5 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. 2018 still has Aquaman and Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse yet to open as well as a mysterious Deadpool film and those three should easily add another billion to this year’s total.

Venom came in third place with an estimated $10.8 million to bring its domestic total to $187.3 million and $17.3 million added overseas. The film has earned $187.3 million domestically and $321.1 million for a worldwide total of $508.4 million. It next opens in Japan on November 2 and an opening in China November 9. The film is a success surviving poor reviews from critics.

With a budget of just $100 million, the film is already looking like it’ll be quite profitable and another success for Sony’s Spider-Man franchise which previously earned on average $318.8 million domestically, $488.4 million internationally, and $807.2 million worldwide. It’s about average when it comes to domestic vs. international earning averages for previous films and that’s without a few major markets opening. It should swing to heavily favoring international earnings once China opens. The film’s budget though is less than half the average Spider-Man film which average $209.5 million. So, the film needs to make far less to be as profitable.

Ant-Man and the Wasp didn’t chart for the weekend but still earned about $57,000 domestically and $35,000 internationally over the past week. It now stands at $216.6 million domestically, $405.8 million internationally, and $622.4 million worldwide.

The film has not only passed the original domestically (both adjusted and not-adjusted for inflation) but it also has passed it internationally. The film should keeping adding dollars to its total for the next month and be somewhere above $100 million over the original when it’s all over. The sequel has a budget of about $32 million more than the original so it’ll need to that to even out profitability.

Avengers: Infinity War and Black Panther both gained some dollars. Avengers: Infinity War added about $33,000 to its international earnings. Black Panther added about $3,000 internationally.

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