Where the Data Ranks 2017’s Comic Book Films. My Friend Dahmer Crosses $1 million

2017 feels like it’s shaping up to be a wild ride for comic adaptions. We look at who the real winners and losers are for this year’s comic films and dive into the numbers… not opinions.

Maybe the lesson of the year is to not count a film down? With what can only be described as a disappointing opening, Justice League continues to fight at the box office adding $20 million over the past week. While the film is lagging other DC films at the same point of time, it’s also earning much more at the foreign box office when it comes to percent. Its passed Wonder Woman when it comes to international earnings. Suicide Squad is not out of the realm of possibility as well. The film is earning a little over 65% of its dollars from the foreign box office. The DCU on average has earned 58%. The higher percentage is partially due to lower domestic earnings, but the film is definitely not to be counted out at the worldwide box office and will likely settle in the $650 million range.

Thor: Ragnarok was #7 at the box office dropping from last week’s #5. The film earned an estimated $3 million to bring its domestic total to $306.4 million. The film has also earned $535.4 million at the foreign box office bringing its worldwide total to $841.8 million. The film is about $22 million behind Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and has a chance to pass it. It’s also $10 million behind Spider-Man: Homecoming‘s international gross, which was the top for the year as far as comic adaptations.

My Friend Dahmer continues to gain and now sits at $1,246,287 about a $247,000 increase. Blade of the Immortal didn’t do all that much domestically with its total only standing at $150,532, a $5,000 increase from the previous week.

Kingsman: The Golden Circle has slowed down and right now is fighting to pass the $400 million mark. It stands at $395.4 million. The film has earned more than the original at the international box office with $295.2 million compared to $286.1 million but trails domestically with $100.2 million to the original’s $128.2 million.

2017 has been a record year for comic adaptations. With over a month to go the films have earned $2.346 billion domestically beating the previous year’s $1.901 billion. Internationally, films have earned $3.719 billion beating the previous record of $3.215 billion set in 2014. Worldwide comic adaptations have earned $6.065 billion beating the 2016 record of $5.026 billion. “Profits” too have seen a record year with $4.387 billion versus 2016’s record of $3.812 billion.

Lets compare how the big two comic companies compare for earnings. On average DC films earn $315.7 million domestically while Marvel earns $313.1 million. Internationally, Marvel rules with $486.4 million and DC lags behind with $432.8 million. This will change a lot over the next few weeks and traditionally DC films out earn Marvel films domestically.

Already, the year is an interesting one with five clear successes and a whole lot of mixed otherwise. Thor: RagnarokWonder Woman, Logan, Spider-Man: Homecoming, and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 have done well this year. My Friend DahmerJustice LeagueKingsman: The Golden Circle, The LEGO Batman Movie and Smurfs: The Lost Village, and Atomic Blonde are in that debatable area, and ValerianWilson, Ghost in the Shell, and Blade of the Immortal are generally disappointments. Marvel’s Inhumans… got no clue and tough to debate since it’s a television show primarily with a limited film engagement.

Here’s where this year’s comic films stand as far as the actual numbers. With a new film opening the averages have dipped.

Total Domestic Gross: $2.346 billion
Total International Gross: $3.719 billion
Worldwide Gross: $6.065 billion

The higher percentage is partially due to lower domestic earnings, but the film is bringing the dollars in as noted above and will pass many of the other DC films this week.

Thor: Ragnarok came in fourth for the weekend again adding $9.7 million to its domestic total bringing that to $291.4 million. Worldwide the film has earned $816.4 million. The film is now just behind 2002’s Spider-Man which earned $821.7 million and the film will likely pass Wonder Woman‘s worldwide total which is $821.76 million.

Where the Data Ranks 2017’s Comic Book Films. Justice League Debuts While Thor Crosses $700 Million

2017 feels like it’s shaping up to be a wild ride for comic adaptions. We look at who the real winners and losers are for this year’s comic films and dive into the numbers… not opinions.

Justice League failed to top $100 million domestically in its opening three day weekend earning an estimated $93.8 million. The film won the weekend but fell short of expectations which saw it earning between $100 and $110 million. The film earned $13 million on Thursday previews which was $2 million more than Wonder Woman. That film earned $103.2 million. It’s the lowest opening for any of the DC Extended Universe films so far.

But, things weren’t all bad as the film also brought in $185.5 million from 65 foreign markets to bring its worldwide total to $278.8 million. The film had the second largest opening ever for a Warner Bros. film in China and it has yet to open in Japan. That happens on November 23. With a reported budget of $300 million, the film will need to earn about $600 million to break even.

Reviews of the film were mixed with a B+ CinemaScore. The audience was 58% male and 69% over the age of 25. We predict the film will earn between $200 and $250 million domestically with $500-$600 at foreign markets to be around $750 million total, a number that’s nothing to sneeze at.

This coming week sees the release of Coco which will likely bump Justice Leaguefrom the top of the box office and add to a narrative of its failure.

Thor: Ragnarok came in third for the weekend and brought in an additional $21.8 million domestically to bring that total to $247.4 million. It also added an estimated $24.1 million internationally to bring that total to $490.7 million and the worldwide total over $700 million. Worldwide the film has earned $738.1 million so far. The movie pass Logan and currently is at #19 in the all time comic earnings. It has also shot pass Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Doctor Strange, Thor: The Dark World, Ant-Man, and the original Thor. It will likely surpass Suicide Squad, X-Men Days of Future Past, The Amazing Spider-Man, and maybe Guardians of the Galaxy this week.

My Friend Dahmer expanded in theaters and increased its earnings 2x. The film how stands at $485,675. Blade of the Immortal didn’t do all that much domestically with its total only standing at $110,615, a $12,000 increase from the previous week.

Kingsman: The Golden Circle has slowed down and right now is fighting to pass the $400 million mark. It stands at $393.3 million

Where the Data Ranks 2017’s Comic Book Films. Domestic Earnings Cross $2 Billion

2017 feels like it’s shaping up to be a wild ride for comic adaptions. We look at who the real winners and losers are for this year’s comic films and dive into the numbers… not opinions.

Thor: Ragnarok repeated at the top of the box office with an estimated $56.6 million over the weekend. The film also added $76 million to its international total as well.

The film has earned $211.6 million domestically, $438.5 million internationally, and $650.1 million worldwide. That domestic total in ten days is more than the first two films’ entire domestic run. It will easily pass Doctor Strange‘s $232 million which opened the same weekend last year. It has also passed the worldwide totals of the first two films.

My Friend Dahmer expanded in theaters and increased its earnings 6x. The film how stands at $243,207. Blade of the Immortal didn’t have as much domestically with its total only standing at $98,581.

Kingsman: The Golden Circle has passed Superman Returns’ worldwide total.

Lets compare how the big two comic companies compare for earnings. On average DC films earn $339.8 million domestically while Marvel earns $307.5 million. Internationally, Marvel rules with $480.7 million and DC lags behind with $437.4 million. There’s still work for DC when it comes to the international film market and it’ll be interesting to see how the new Thor and Justice League impact these totals.

Already, the year is an interesting one with three clear successes and a whole lot of mixed otherwise. Thor: RagnarokWonder Woman, Logan, Spider-Man: Homecoming, and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 have done well this year.

2017 feels like it’s shaping up to be a wild ride for comic adaptions. We look at who the real winners and losers are for this year’s comic films and dive into the numbers… not opinions.

Thor: Ragnarok is the beginning of the holiday movie season and it started out strong domestically with a little over $121 million opening in North America. That’s the seventh largest opening for a Marvel Cinematic film and beat this year’s Spider-Man: Homecoming which opened with $117 million. Thor opened with $65.7 million to go on and gross $181 million (not adjusted) domestically and $449.3 million worldwide in 2011 while Thor: The Dark World opened with $85.7 million and went on to gross $206.3 million (not adjusted) domestically and $644.6 million worldwide in 2013.

The film received an “A” Cinemascore with an audience that was 56% male and 44% female, and 63% over the age of 25.

Overseas, the film opened with an estimated $55.6 million in China, the largest ever for a November release. It also debuted with $5.2 million in India, $10.8 million in Mexico, $8.9 million in Germany, $3.5 million in Japan, and $3.7 million in Russia.

The film’s debut has pushed Marvel over $13 billion globally and $5 billion domestically.

But, Thor: Ragnarok wasn’t the only debut for comic films this week.

My Friend Dahmer opened in four theaters earning $45,000. That’s a very healthy per-theater average. Blade of the Immortal also made its domestic debut earning $42,000 in 30 theaters. The film already has earned $6.7 million from its release in Japan earlier in the year.

We missed this last week, but Spider-Man: Homecoming is still bringing in money adding about $100,000 to its domestic total. The film still leads this year’s comic adaptations.

Kingsman: The Golden Circle is now at $389.6 million passing Captain America: The First Avenger, X-Men: First Class, and Batman Begins in worldwide earnings.

Wonder Woman continues to add to its total as it winds down its run. The film has the highest domestic gross of the year and second highest gross/budget. The film has passed the 2002 Spider-Man when it comes to worldwide gross. It now sits at #11.

Lets compare how the big two comic companies compare for earnings. On average DC films earn $339.8 million domestically while Marvel earns $302.1 million. Internationally, Marvel rules with $472.9 million and DC lags behind with $437.4 million. There’s still work for DC when it comes to the international film market and it’ll be interesting to see how the new Thor and Justice League impact these totals.

Kingsman: The Golden Circle, The LEGO Batman Movie and Smurfs: The Lost Village, and Atomic Blonde are in that debatable area, and ValerianWilson and Ghost in the Shell are generally disappointments.

Where the Data Ranks 2017’s Comic Book Films. Thor Ragnarok Debuts Internationally

2017 feels like it’s shaping up to be a wild ride for comic adaptions. We look at who the real winners and losers are for this year’s comic films and dive into the numbers… not opinions.

Thor: Ragnarok opened in 36 international markets with $107.6 million. That opening is 4% above Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and 22% above Doctor Strange. The film opens in North American theaters this coming week as well as Germany, Russia, China, Japan, Mexico, Austria, and more (almost 100% of the global marketplace).

We missed this last week, but Spider-Man: Homecoming is still bringing in money adding about $200,000 to its domestic total. The foreign box office was adjusted down over the week by $1 million. The film still leads this year’s comic adaptations with two more looking to dethrone it.

Kingsman: The Golden Circle added $33 million over the week worldwide. The film is still behind the original and can be considered a mediocre success. The film is now beating this year’s comic adaptation’s “profit” average.

Wonder Woman continues to add to its total as it winds down its run. The film has the highest domestic gross of the year and second highest gross/budget. It added a little over $33,000 to its total over the weekend. The film is just $74,000 behind the 2002 Spider-Man when it comes to worldwide gross. It currently sits at #12 at the all time comic adaptation list with a chance to move to #11.

Lets compare how the big two comic companies compare for earnings. On average DC films earn $339.8 million domestically while Marvel earns $308.3 million.

Where the Data Ranks 2017’s Comic Book Films. Kingsman: The Golden Circle Cracks the Top 50

2017 feels like it’s shaping up to be a wild ride for comic adaptions. We look at who the real winners and losers are for this year’s comic films and dive into the numbers… not opinions. We’re in the holding pattern until the next two big “comic” films, Thor: Ragnarok and Justice League debut. But, this year’s releases are still bringing in the dollars.

We missed this last week, but Spider-Man: Homecoming is one of the two big comic stories of the year. The film is the top grossing comic adaptation of the year so far and gained about $400,000 over the past week. It sits at about $11 behind Spider-Man 3 and is #8 when it comes to top grossing comic adaptations of all time (not adjusted for inflation).

Kingsman: The Golden Circle added $3 million to its total to come in at #10 and bringing its domestic total to $94.6 million and $344.8 million worldwide. The film opened in China with $40.3 million an improvement over the original film. The first film brought in about $75 million from the market overall. The sequel lags the first film by about $70 million worldwide but doesn’t open in Japan until January 5. The first film brought in $7.5 million there. The film is now in the “green” when it comes to its international gross compared to this year’s current average though lags the domestic average.

Wonder Woman continues to add to its total as it winds down its run. The film has the highest domestic gross of the year and second highest gross/budget. It added a little over $162,000 to its total over the weekend. The film is just $107,000 behind the 2002 Spider-Man when it comes to worldwide gross. It currently sits at #12 at the all time comic adaptation list with a chance to move to #11.

Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets is pretty done with a at home video release coming in a few weeks. The film sits at a little over $225 million for its total.

Lets compare how the big two comic companies compare for earnings. On average DC films earn $339.8 million domestically while Marvel earns $308.3 million. Internationally, Marvel rules with $476.9 million and DC lags behind with $437.4 million. There’s still work for DC when it comes to the international film market and it’ll be interesting to see how the new Thor and Justice League impact these totals.

Already, the year is an interesting one with three clear successes and a whole lot of mixed otherwise. Wonder Woman, Logan, Spider-Man: Homecoming, and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 have done well this year. The LEGO Batman Movie and Smurfs: The Lost Village, and Atomic Blonde are in that debatable area, and ValerianWilson and Ghost in the Shell are generally disappointments. Things aren’t looking good but we’ll see about Kingsman: The Golden CircleMarvel’s Inhumans… got no clue and tough to debate since it’s a television show primarily with a limited film engagement.

Here’s where this year’s comic films stand as far as the actual numbers. With a new film opening the averages have dipped.

Total Domestic Gross: $1.812 billion
Total International Gross: $2.718 billion
Worldwide Gross: $4.531 billion
Total Reported Budgets: $1.187 million
Total “Profit”: $3.341 billion

Average Domestic Gross: $151.0 million
Average International Gross: $247.1 million
Average: Worldwide Gross: $377.6 million
Average Budget: $107.9 million
Average Profit: $269.6 million

Where the Data Ranks 2017’s Comic Book Films. Spider-Man Passes Dawn of Justice

2017 feels like it’s shaping up to be a wild ride for comic adaptions. We look at who the real winners and losers are for this year’s comic films.

We’re in the holding pattern until the next two big “comic” films, Thor: Ragnarok and Justice League debut. But, this year’s releases are still bringing in the dollars.

We missed this last week, but Spider-Man: Homecoming is one of the two big comic stories of the year. A late boost has seen the film surge in the rankings and the film is the top worldwide grossing comic adaptation of the year so far. The film has also passed Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and the numbers as of now are very similar domestically and internationally. The film now ranks as #8 in the all time grossing comic adaptations and is $11.6 million behind Spider-Man 3.

Kingsman: The Golden Circle is still only a few weeks into its run and running behind the first film’s domestic run by about $40 million at the same point. It also has a higher budget by about $23 million. It’s unlikely the film will match its predecessor’s success.

Wonder Woman continues to add to its total as it winds down its run. The film has the highest domestic gross of the year and second highest gross/budget.

Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets is slowing down and crossed the $225 million mark. The film is not a success, but it earned more than its budget fueled by the international box office.

Lets compare how the big two comic companies compare for earnings. On average DC films earn $339.7 million domestically while Marvel earns $308.3 million. Internationally, Marvel rules with $476.9 million and DC lags behind with $437.4 million. There’s still work for DC when it comes to the international film market.
