Joker Sets a New Record and Cracks the Top 50

Joker

Despite some solid competition, Joker held on to the top spot at the weekend box office domestically, internationally, and worldwide. The film has earned almost $544 million in twelve days.

Joker earned an estimated $55 million dipping just 43% in its second weekend. Domestically, the film has earned $192.7 million after ten days in release. It’s the largest October second weekend ever beating Gravity’s $43.2 million in 2013.

Internationally, the film brought in an estimated $123.7 million from 79 markets. The film has earned $351.2 million at the foreign box office so far.

The film has also been climbing the charts and is now #44 in lifetime worldwide grosses for a comic film adaptation. It’s also a solid return on investment. The film’s reported budget is $55 million and with worldwide grosses at $544 million and counting, the multiplier is a solid 9.89 and climbing. It’s the second-best return for a comic adaptation this year behind Dragon Ball Super: Broly. It’s also the best return of the modern era of DC films that began with Batman Begins through Aquaman.

Over the past week, Spider-Man: Far From Home earned an estimated $170,000 domestically. The movie’s domestic total now stands at $390.4 million. Internationally, the film added about $130,000 to its total. Internationally, the film has earned $741.0 million. Worldwide, the film has earned $1.131 billion. Having passed Captain Marvel, the movie would need to earn a bit less than $16.6 million to pass Aquaman in worldwide grosses.

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.


Here’s where 2019’s comic films stand as far as the actual numbers.

Total Domestic Gross: $2.126 billion

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.

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.

Erik Larsen Shares His DC/Image Crossover Art

Word of a possible crossover between DC Comics and Image Comics broke earlier this year. While the project looks dead, Erik Larsen shared art he was doing for his part of the event.

Larsen shared the pencils to an image featuring a Fawcett inspired Captain Marvel and his own Savage Dragon. The two styles in characters stand out making this a company crossover comic fans are worse off for not seeing.

Larsen in a comment says the juxtaposition inn style and characters is on purpose as he’d “prefer contrasting characters to similar ones.”

While the event was sure to sell issues, probably dominate the top ten, and spur too many news articles to count, according to Larsen it was a combination of issues between the two publishers that ended the project.

As Larsen comments in his post:

DC soon found that there weren’t enough willing parties that could get the job done in their timeframe. There were folks at Image who thought it would help DC more than it would Image (since DC would be publishing it) and folks were talked out of participating. The only Image founder onboard was me. Others were creators from the second wave.

The project leaking to a rumor site didn’t help matters sucking the wind out of the room.
