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.

The National Nightmare is Over, Disney and Sony Strike a Deal for One More Spider-Man Movie

Spider-Man: Far From Home

It shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone but Disney and Sony have struck a deal to work on one more Spider-Man movie together. The film will be released July 16, 2021 and will most likely pick up where Spider-Man: Far From Home left off.

In 2015 Marvel and Sony entered into a partnership where Marvel would help create Sony’s Spider-Man films. The two released Spider-Man: Homecoming and Spider-Man: Far From Home together and brought the character into the Marvel Cinematic Universe appearing in Civil War, Avengers: Infinity War, and Avengers: Endgame.

Marvel’s Kevin Feige said:

I am thrilled that Spidey’s journey in the MCU will continue, and I and all of us at Marvel Studios are very excited that we get to keep working on it. Spider-Man is a powerful icon and hero whose story crosses all ages and audiences around the globe. He also happens to be the only hero with the superpower to cross cinematic universes, so as Sony continues to develop their own Spidey-verse you never know what surprises the future might hold.

Feige’s statement hints that the relationship might see the character continue in the Marvel Cinematic Universe proper as well.

The deal fell apart in August after Disney wanted a bigger piece of the pie and more control over other Spider-Man characters Sony controls.

Both companies have found success with the character who has become important in the MCU and the two films grossed more than the previous Sony Spider-Man films as well as the average solo character Marvel film. Marvel also gets the benefit of merchandising sales of the character.

On average, Sony has just had more success on their own compared to Marvel on their own. When you take out the three Avengers team films, the average Sony live-action Spider-Man film grosses more than Marvel films. Worldwide, Sony sees $803.2 million per film compared to Marvel’s $758.6 million (and that includes Marvel’s four billion dollar solo films). Domestically, the two are similar with Marvel grossing $309.3 million compared to Sony’s $298.7 million. Internationally, Sony wins with $504.5 million to Marvel’s $449.3 million. While Sony’s average budget is higher, they still have a higher “profit” of $606.2 million compared to Marvel’s $586.3 million. The multiplier for Sony is 4.65x on average to Marvel’s 4.17x. So, Sony has had success with their films before Marvel ever became involved (just because you didn’t like the film doesn’t mean it wasn’t a success).

Interestingly, the two are stronger together as their joint ventures beat both studios separately. On average the two joint Spider-Man films have earned $355.4 million domestically, $636.1 million internationally, $991.5 million worldwide, $824 million “profit,” and a 5.96 multiplier. Sony’s original Spider-Man trilogy has still performed better than this third volume which has really seen its success at the international box office.

Sony is in the process of setting up their own cinematic universe involving a sequel to Venom, the upcoming Morbius and more rumored films.

Downton Abbey Takes First with a Record for Focus Features

Downton Abbey

Downton Abbey won the weekend with an estimated $31 million. That’s Focus Features’ largest opening ever.

The film opened with an audience that was 74% female and the audience was 60% aged 35 or older. The film received an “A” CinemaScore and has a 96% audience score on RottenTomatoes and 7.8/10 on IMBD as of this post.

Internationally, the film opened in 17 markets last weekend and added 15 this week for 32 total. The film brought in an estimated $10 million to bring its international total to $30.8 million for a worldwide total of $61.8 million so far.

It was a close race for second as Ad Astra barely beat Rambo: Last Blood. Ad Astra earned an estimated $19.2 million, not great for a film with an $80-$100 million budget. The film also earned an estimated $26 million from 44 markets.

The film received a “B-” CinemaScore and had an audience that was 54% male and 73% aged 25 or older.

Rambo: Last Blood was third with an estimated $19 million which was just ahead of the previous chapter’s $18.2 million debut. Audiences gave that film a “B” CinemaScore and the audience was 66% male.

It: Chapter Two dropped to fourth place with an estimated $17.2 million domestically to bring that total to $179.2 million. It’s the third-largest R-rated horror film domestically of all-time.

Rounding out the top five was Hustlers with an estimated $17 million to bring its domestic total to $62.5 million. It also added $3 million from 18 markets for a foreign total just shy of $10 million.

In comic based films…

Spider-Man: Far From Home earned an estimated $340,000 after 12 weeks to bring its domestic total to $389.7 million.

We’ll be back in an hour for a deeper look at 2019’s comic adaptations.

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. 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.

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.

Far From Home Challenges 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 saw a dip after last weekend’s boost at the box office. The film came in at #13 at the domestic weekend box office. The film added $1.2 million over the weekend to its total to bring that to $388.1 million. It also added $2 million to its international total over the week. That total now stands at $738.2 million. Worldwide, the film has earned $1.126 billion. It’s now just $2 million behind Captain Marvel‘s worldwide total of $1.128 billion. There’s a chance it’ll pass that film’s total before the week is up.

The Kitchen, based on the Vertigo comic miniseries, continues to struggle at the box office but it’s earning dollars. The film earned $180,000 domestically for the week and nothing internationally. The movie has brought in just shy of $12 million domestically, $2.7 million internationally, and $14.7 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 20 weeks. The movie came in at #42 with an estimated $12,000 to bring its domestic total to $858.4 million. Along with its $1.938 billion internationally, the film has grossed $2.796 billion worldwide.

It: Chapter Two Floats to First at the Box Office

It: Chapter Two

It: Chapter Two took the top spot at the box office with a $91 million domestic debut. That trails the first film’s $123 million opening in 2017 but was within the studio expectations. It’s also the second-largest horror film opening behind the original It.

The likely reason for the film’s lagging box office is that it failed to attract women. Women tend to be the majority audience for horror films but It: Chapter Two only saw 47% of the audience being female compared to the first’s 51%. The audience was also a bit older with 67% being aged 25 or older compared to 65% for the first film. The movie did get a “B+” CinemaScore, the same as the first film. Other ratings weren’t so kind as the sequel lags behind the first in user ratings.

Internationally, the film opened in 75 markets. It earned an estimated $94 million leading to a worldwide debut of $185 million.

Angel Has Fallen earned an estimated $6 million to come in second place. After three weeks, the film has earned just shy of $53.5 million.

In third place was Good Boys which added an estimated $5.4 million to its total to bring its domestic total to $66.8 million. It also added $2.3 million from 28 international markets to bring that total to $15.6 million and a worldwide total of $82.4 million.

The Lion King was in fourth place after eight weeks at the box office. The film earned an estimated $4.2 million. It also added $13.4 million internationally. The film has earned $529.1 million domestically, $1.070 billion internationally, and $1.599 billion worldwide.

Rounding out the top five was Overcomer which brought in an estimated $3.8 million to bring the $5 million dollar film’s domestic total to $24.7 million.

In comic films…

Spider-Man: Far From Home dipped after last week’s bump coming in at #13 for the weekend. The film added $1.2 million to its total to bring that to $388.1 million.

Avengers: Endgame held on and came in at #42 with an estimated $12,000 to bring its domestic total to $858.4 million after 20 weeks.

We’ll be back in an hour for a deeper look at 2019’s comic film releases.
