Joker Dances Along as it Challenges Batman

Joker

Joker held steady at the weekend box office coming in at #10 adding an estimated $1.04 million to its domestic total bringing it to $332.1 million. Over the week, the film added about $5 million to its international total to bring that to $722.8 million. Worldwide, the film has earned $1.055 billion on a budget of just $55 million.

The movie is currently ranked #11 in worldwide total for a comic adaptation. It’s about $26 million from passing The Dark Knight Rises and will crack the top ten at that point.

When it comes to DC films, it’s a most interesting one. The film is marching along and will likely pass Aquaman‘s domestic total by the time its domestic run is over. And after the next couple of weeks, the film has a chance of winding up in second place as far as that statistic:

The film is now one of the most profitable comic film adaptations of all time. With a reported budget of $55 million, the movie has an 19.18x return so far. That’s the highest factor for any movie based on a comic beating The Mask which was the previous leader with a 15.29x factor.

The film hasn’t earned the most compared to the budget, that record is held by Avengers: Endgame. Despite a $356 million budget, that movie earned a “profit” of $2.442 billion. Joker has cracked the top ten though having so far earned a “profit” of $999.9 million. The film will cross the $1 billion “profit” mark during this week.

Joker Nears Civil War While Far From Home Swings On

Joker

Joker dropped to #10 for the weekend adding an estimated $2.8 million to its domestic total after eight weeks. Over the week, the film added $14.8 million to its international total. The movie has made $326.9 million domestically and $708.8 million at the international box office. That brings its current worldwide total to $1.036 billion.

The movie is currently ranked #12 in worldwide total for a comic adaptation. It’s $9.1 million away from Captain America: Civil War and will likely pass that film this coming week. After that, it needs $45.3 million to pass The Dark Knight Rises and crack the top ten.

When it comes to movies released this year, the film passed Captain Marvel when it comes to international earnings. It also passed Spider-Man: Far From Home when it comes to gross after budget is taken out.

When it comes to DC films, it’s a most interesting one. It’s improved from last week passing Suicide Squad for a domestic total. And after the next couple of weeks, the film will likely wind up in second or third place as far as that statistic:

Mike Mignola, Zach Howard, and Dave Stewart Collaborate for the Sequel to the Iconic Story The Crooked Man

Legendary Hellboy creator Mike Mignola, acclaimed artist Zach Howard, award-winning colorist Dave Stewart, and letterer Clem Robbins are collaborating on a sequel to the iconic Hellboy story The Crooked Man. In Hellboy & The B.P.R.D.: The Return of Effie Kolb, years after he banished the infamous backwoods demon known as the Crooked Man, Hellboy returns to Appalachia when a young psychic warns Tom Ferrell of looming danger. But the Crooked Man’s house is no longer empty, and threats both new and old simmer in the Virginia woods. 

Hellboy: The Crooked Man by Mignola and celebrated illustrator Richard Corben was originally published by Dark Horse Comics as a 3-issue mini-series in 2008 and is included in Hellboy: The Complete Short Stories Volume 1.

Joker Cracks the Top 15. Far From Home Keeps Swinging

Joker

Joker came in second place at the weekend box office adding an estimated $13.9 million to its domestic total a 27.7% drop from the previous weekend.

Over the week, the film earned nearly $22 million domestically and $63 million at the international box office.

The film has earned $299.6 million in total domestically. The movie has also earned $634.4 million at the international box office bringing its worldwide total to $934 million making the elusive $1 billion box office within reach. With just a $55 million budget, the film is one of the most profitable of the year.

The film is now ranked #13 in worldwide grosses for a film based on a comic property. It needs to cross the billion-dollar mark to move higher in the rankings.

Joker is also the second highest-grossing DC Universe film of the modern era (post-Man of Steel) worldwide. The movie’s success really comes from the international box-office where it has succeeded while most DC films stumble, Aquaman being the exception. It’s the second highest-grossing film at the international box office for a DC film. It’s the fifth highest-grossing film domestically, but will likely move into fifth by the time its domestic run is over.

Over the past week, Spider-Man: Far From Home earned an estimated $43,000 internationally. The movie’s domestic total now stands at $390.5 million domestically and $741.3 million internationally. Worldwide, the film has earned $1.132 billion.

Joker Cracks the Top 20

Joker

Joker dethroned Maleficent: Mistress of Evil to take the weekend box office. The film dipped just 35% from the previous weekend after four weeks. The film earned an estimated $18.9 million. Domestically, the movie has earned $277.6 million. Internationally, the film added $47.8 million to bring that total to $571.5 million. Worldwide, its total sits at $849.1 million and that’s without China. The film will likely pass the $900 million mark and there’s a chance it’ll cross the $1 billion mark as well, though that’s more difficult without China.

The film is now ranked #19 in worldwide grosses for a film based on a comic property. It needs just $4 million to pass Thor: Ragnarok and $7 million to pass last year’s Venom.

Joker is also the third highest-grossing DC Universe film of the modern era (post-Man of Steel) worldwide and will likely pass Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice to become second when it’s done. The movie’s success really comes from the international box-office where it has succeeded while most DC films stumble, Aquaman being the exception. It’s the second highest-grossing film at the international box office for a DC film. It’s the sixth highest-grossing film domestically, but will likely move into fifth by the time its domestic run is over.

Over the past week, Spider-Man: Far From Home earned an estimated $37,000 domestically and $220,000 internationally. The movie’s domestic total now stands at $390.5 million domestically and $741.3 million internationally. Worldwide, the film has earned $1.132 billion.

Can Joker Hit a Billion While Endgame and Shazam See Life

Joker

Joker dipped to second place in its third week. It dropped just 48% which is a strong performance of an estimated $29.2 million domestically. It has now earned $247.2 million at the domestic box office. Internationally, the film added $77.8 million for a foreign total of $490.3 million. Worldwide, the film has earned $737.5 million. With such success over three weeks, the question is if the film will cross the coveted $1 billion mark.

The film rocketed up the rankings of worldwide earnings for comic adaptations. Joker now ranks #28 up from #44 last week. The movie is $8.1 million away from passing Suicide Squad and $10.3 million from X-Men: Days of Future Past. After this week, the film will likely rank about #21 on the chart. When it comes to the modern DCU, the film has passed Man of Steel, Justice League, and Shazam. When it comes to the return on budget, it ranks as the top film for DC by over a factor of 2 from the next highest.

Over the past week, Spider-Man: Far From Home earned an estimated $85,000 internationally. The movie’s domestic total now stands at $390.4 million domestically and $741.0 million internationally. Worldwide, the film has earned $1.132 billion.

The Kitchen is almost done with its run at the box office. The film earned an estimated $100,000 internationally. The film has fallen short of making back its budget showing when it came to this kitchen, folks chose to ate out.

Two films saw life which might be just an adjustment. Avengers: Endgame added $1.5 million to its international total. Shazam! added $100,000 to its international total as well.
