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. Over the week, the film added about $750,000 internationally to bring that total to $739.1 million. Worldwide, the film has earned $1.127 billion. 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.
