Ford v Ferrari Finishes in First While Joker Crosses $1 Billion

Ford v Ferrari

Ford v Ferrari won the weekend coming in first place at the domestic box office. It earned an estimated $31 million beating forecast. The film received an “A+” CinemaScore. That indicates a positive word of mouth was likely behind the solid box office performance. The opening day crowd was 62% male and 79% were aged 25 or older.

Internationally, the film earned $21.4 million from 41 markets for a $52.4 million debut. The film opens on December 5 in South Korea and in Japan on January 10.

Midway dopped to second place dropping 51% earning an estimated $8.8 million to bring its domestic total to $35 million after ten days. It’s possible the film’s position may drop when the actual numbers come in.

Charlie’s Angels finished third earning an estimated $8.6 million in its debut. The film was expected to open between $12-13 million. The film received a “B” CinemaScore from the opening weekend audience. The audience was 61% female and 55% of the audience was 25 or older.

Internationally, the film opened in 26 markets with an estimated $19.3 million. That gives it a $27.9 million global debut. With a budget of $48 million, that total isn’t horrible and long term it should make a tiny profit but this looks like a possible franchise reboot that stumbled out of the gate. It opens in the UK on November 29, Spain on December 5, France on December 25, Mexico on January 1, Germany on January 2, Italy on January 9, Japan on January 21, and South Korea on February 26.

Playing with Fire dropped 33% to come in fourth bringing in an estimated $8.55 million bringing its domestic total to $25.4 million. Internationally, the film earned $1.3 million for a total of $4.5 million.

Rounding out the top five was Last Christmas which earned an estimated $6.7 million to bring its domestic total to $22.6 million after ten days. Internationally, the film earned $13 million to bring its worldwide total to $35.5 million.

In comic film news…

Joker came in eighth at the weekend box office adding $5.6 million to its domestic total. That stands at $322.6 million. Internationally, the film added $13 million to its total to bring that to $694 million. That’s a grand total of $1.017 billion making it the first R-rated film to cross the billion-dollar mark. It’s also:

  • The fourth DC Comics adaptation to cross the billion-dollar line
  • Seventh film to earn $1 billion in 2019
  • The third film to cross $1 billion with a China release

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

Somethin’ ain’t right with Charlie, and not only are the missions he’s sending the Angels on also “not right,” but they are downright treasonous as well. It hasn’t taken the Angels long to figure out this Charlie might not be their Charlie— which means the next mission he sends them on may very well be a suicide mission!

When it comes to secrets and spies, who can you trust? No, seriously. We’re asking you. The Angels need to know. They are after a KGB agent in possession of American nuclear information and things are not what they seem. It looks like they will have to use their brains and karate action to get themselves out of this one!

Graphic Policy’s Top Comic Picks this Week!

Wednesdays are new comic book day! Each week hundreds of comics are released, and that can be pretty daunting to go over and choose what to buy. That’s where we come in!

Each week our contributors are choosing up to five books and why they’re choosing the books. In other words, this is what we’re looking forward to and think you should be taking a look!

Find out what folks think below, and what comics you should be looking out for this Wednesday.

Charlie’s Angels #1 (Dynamite) – While the publisher can be hit and miss, we’re excited to see this property back in comics and it’s long overdue. Hoping for the best but this is one that’s high on our read pile.

Dodge City #4 (BOOM! Studios) – A comic about dodge ball? It works and it’s a lot of fun to read. So far the comic has focused on interesting characters and has avoided predictable twists to keep readers on their toes.

Final Street #1 (Devil’s Due) – The cover, the logo, it reminds us of the classic beat’em-up side scrolling video games of our youth. That’s enough to get us excited to check this one out.

The Flash #49 (DC Comics) – “The Flash War” has been excellent so far. The story has sped along at breakneck speed (pun intended) and its impact feels like it’s going to be huge.

Man of Steel #5 (DC Comics) – We’ve enjoyed Brian Michael Bendis’ take on Superman so far. The miniseries has been great in its depiction of the character, though the action has been a bit mixed. Still, this is the defining series as to where the character is going for the next few years at least.

Multiple Man #1 (Marvel) – Maddrox is back? Dead. Alive. Dead. We’re honestly not sure the status of Jamie Maddrox so we’re intrigued to see what this series will be about.

Sentry #1 (Marvel) – The Sentry was never a character we cared for in the past but Jeff Lemire taking him on has us really excited.

Shadow Roads #1 (Oni Press) – The follow up to Cullen Bunn and Brian Hurtt’s The Sixth Gun has us excited. The fantasy western was fantastic and we’re expecting more of the same.

Thor #2 (Marvel) – The first issue was fun. Lots of fun. Thor is a bit humbled and things are being figured out post major events. Add in a lot of humor and it’s an entertaining series so far and one that’s shot up to the top of our read pile.

X-O Manowar (2017) #16 (Valiant Entertainment) – Everything Valiant has been putting out is quality and this series is one of their best. Just fantastic all around.

New York Comic Con 2017: Dynamite Brings Charlie’s Angels to Comics

Once upon a time there were three very different little girls who grew up to be three very different women with three things in common: they’re brilliant, they’re beautiful, and they work for a mysterious man named Charlie. Thanks to a new partnership between Dynamite Entertainment and Sony Pictures Television, they now have something new in common: they will all reunite for brand-new adventures in Dynamite’s upcoming Charlie’s Angels comic book series, slated to hit shelves in 2018!

The 1976 Charlie’s Angels television series was created by Ivan Goff and Ben Roberts, with industry legend Aaron Spelling serving as Executive Producer for the show during its 5-season run.  The iconic series followed the crime-fighting adventures of three powerful women working in a Los Angeles private detective agency for the mysterious and unseen Charlie Townsend. The smash-hit series saw more than 100 episodes, and became a cult hit for decades to come thanks to subsequent syndication and DVD distribution deals.
