Bloodshot Debuts Beating Expectations as the Box Office Tanks

It was a rough weekend at the box office with the lowest earnings in two decades. The fears over the coronavirus kept audiences at home and theaters to close. Despite that, Sony‘s Bloodshot debuted beating expectations. Bloodshot is the latest comic based film, launching a potential new cinematic universe based on Valiant’s comics.

It opened with $9.3 million which actually beat expectations. The audience enjoyed it with a 78% on RottenTomatoes though critics gave it a 31% rating. The opening day audience gave it a “B” CinemaScore.

Internationally, the film opened in 50 markets and was #1 in over half of them. The film brought in $13 million overseas for an international total of $15.1 million. The film opened in Germany in November.

That opening is #154 on the comic film chart. With a budget of $45 million, the film will have a rough time making back its budget due to the current situation. Sony will have to get creative to salvage the situation. Expect an expedited digital release as one solution.

Birds of Prey

Birds of Prey continues to fight for every dollar at the box office but it looks like the current situation will impact it as well.

The film dropped to #11 at the weekend box office from last week’s #8. Birds of Prey brought in an estimated $555,000 over the weekend and $1.5 million over the week. It has earned $84 million in its six weeks.

The film has also earned about $1.1 million internationally. That brings the number to $114.3 million. The film nears $200 million worldwide and has earned $198.4 million.

The film opens in Japan on March 20 though it’s unknown if the virus outbreak will change that.

My Hero Academia: Heroes Rising continues to bring in the dollars. The film added $600,000 to its domestic total and $12,000 to its international total. It’s earned $28.4 million worldwide so far.

Joker

Joker continues to wind down its run at the box office.

Over the past two weeks, the film earned about $100,000 internationally.

The movie’s $1.074 billion is an amazing haul for a movie whose budget was just $55 million. It caps off a record-setting year for films based on comics.

The movie is currently ranked #11 in worldwide total for a comic adaptation. It’s about $6.8 million from passing The Dark Knight Rises and will crack the top ten at that point. It’s unlikely to do so but you never know.

When it comes to DC films, it’s a most interesting one. The film is marching along and it’s possible it will pass Aquaman‘s domestic total by the time its domestic run is over:

Joker has been doing quite well in international earnings where Warner Bros. has had issues in the past. Aquaman indicates a shift for the company and lessons seem to be continued with Joker.

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 a 19.53x 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 $1.019 billion.

In a head-scratcher, Warner Bros.’ The Kitchen, based of the DC Vertigo comic, saw a massive boost internationally. While the movie had just $3.8 million reported last week, the total is now $106 million. It’s possible the numbers just took a while to come in, which is not uncommon. That has shifted the film from being a complete disaster to about break even.

Birds of Prey continues to Fight at the Box Office While My Hero Academia Brings in the Dollars

Birds of Prey

It’s a tale of two R-rated films based on DC properties and an anime at the weekend box office. Despite positive reviews and a push from fans, Birds of Prey continues to fight for every dollar at the box office.

With a drop of two spots to come in at #8 for the weekend, Birds of Prey brought in an estimated $2.2 million domestically. It has earned $82.6 million in its five weeks.

Over two weeks (we missed last week’s update) the film has earned about $10 million domestically and $12 million internationally. Along with its $113.2 million internationally, the film nears $200 million worldwide and has earned $195.8 million.

The film opens in Japan on March 20.

My Hero Academia: Heroes Rising debuted in fourth place last week. The film opened with $5.9 million domestically. It opened in Japan in December. This past weekend, the anime was #10 after last week’s debut at #4. The film added $1.5 million to its domestic total to bring that to $12.7 million. With $15.1 million internationally, the film has earned $27.8 million worldwide.

Joker

Joker continues to wind down its run at the box office.

Over the past two weeks, the film earned about $100,000 domestically. The film’s total now stands at $335.5 million.

Internationally, the film added $800,000 over the two weeks. It’s earned $738.7 million internationally.
