“AMAZONS ATTACKED” finale! It’s all-out war for Themyscira! Jason’s been handed a gift from the gods that could turn the tide… but how will he use it? And is this gift actually what he believes it to be?

Where the Data Ranks 2017’s (and 2018’s) Comic Book Films. Black Panther Continues to Impress, Death of Stalin Nears $7 million

Black Panther remained in the top ten at the box office coming in at #8 this past weekend. The film dropped 19.7% over the weekend adding $4.6 million to its total. The film now stands at $681.1 million. Worldwide the film stands at $1.324 billion. The film is $8 million behind Star Wars: The Last Jedi to move in to ninth place for worldwide grosses of all time. The movie’s domestic run accounts for almost 20% of 2018’s overall box office. So, while the year is only a third of the way done, it looks like Marvel’s dominance will be the story of the year with Avengers: Infinity War likely also earning a billion dollars by the time it’s done.

The film is still earning far more domestically than the average Marvel film with 51.4% earned versus 41.1% on average. International earnings seem to have slowed down as the percentage has increased for the domestic ever so slightly. The film is an outlier as far as that and we’ll have a deeper dive in a few weeks to see where it over performed and where it might have under performed.

The Death of Stalin was #21 earning $340,216 to bring its domestic total to $6.9 million after seven weeks domestically. It debuted internationally last year, with controversy in Russia. It has also earned $9.05 million in foreign markets. The film has passed Josie and the Pussycats and Billy and Buddy and is now #142 when it comes to comic adaptation earnings.

I Kill Giants continues to be a weird one when it comes to numbers. Reported earnings are scarce. In Russia the film opened on March 29and has earned $127,713. In the United Kingdom is listed as having opened April 6th and earned $804. The film has likely earned money elsewhere, so we’ll keep digging.

We’ll have a deeper analysis of 2018’s releases as more are released but lets do the time warp to 2017…


Things have slowed down as 2017 wraps up.

Thor: Ragnarok looks to have earned a few hundred dollars and stands at $854 million. It’s the last film from 2017 that’s till earning money at the box office.

2017 has been a record year for comic adaptations. The films have earned $2.365 billion domestically beating the previous year’s $1.901 billion. Internationally, films have earned $3.755 billion beating the previous record of $3.215 billion set in 2014. Worldwide comic adaptations have earned $6.120 billion beating the 2016 record of $5.026 billion. “Profits” too have seen a record year with $4.442 billion versus 2016’s record of $3.812 billion.

We’ll continue to report on 2017’s statistics until all dollars are in, at least a few more weeks.

Lets compare how the big two comic companies compare for earnings. Black Panther is included, so Marvel’s totals will increase over time. On average DC films earn $317.6 million domestically while Marvel earns $333.6 million. Internationally, Marvel rules with $495.1 million and DC lags behind with $435.7 million.

2017 has had 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. 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: $2.365 billion
Total International Gross: $3.755 billion
Worldwide Gross: $6.120 billion
Total Reported Budgets: $1.667 million
Total “Profit”: $4.442 billion

Where the Data Ranks 2017’s (and 2018’s) Comic Book Films. Black Panther Drops Out of the Top Five

Black Panther has dropped out of the top give after nine weeks at the box office. The film dropped 38.6% over the weekend adding $5.3 million to its total. The film now stands at $673.8 million domestically and $1.313 billion worldwide. The film is just $20 million behind Star Wars: The Last Jedi for worldwide grosses and there’s a good chance it’ll pass it before its run is over.

The film is still earning far more domestically than the average Marvel film with 51.3% earned versus 41.1% on average. International earnings seem to have slowed down as the percentage has increased for the domestic ever so slightly. The film is an outlier as far as that and we’ll have a deeper dive in a few weeks to see where it over performed and where it might have under performed.

The Death of Stalin held steady at #18 with an estimated $474,692. The film has earned $6.3 million domestically. It’s decreased in theaters now showing in 330 a decrease in 224. It debuted internationally last year, with controversy in Russia. It has also earned $9.05 million in foreign markets. The film has passed Josie and the Pussycats and Billy and Buddy and is now #142 when it comes to comic adaptation earnings.

I Kill Giants still is a weird one when it comes to numbers. So far, only its earnings in Russia have been reported and that was last week. It opened March 29 in that region. The film earned $127,713. Now, the United Kingdom is lsited where it opened April 6th and earned $804 (reported on April 11th). The film has likely earned money elsewhere, so we’ll keep digging.

“AMAZONS ATTACKED” part four! When last they met, Wonder Woman was robbed of a chance to meet Darkseid in single combat-and she’s certain she’d be able to take him down. At last, she’s going to get her wish-but with Darkseid at full power, is she still sure she’ll survive?

Where the Data Ranks 2017’s (and 2018’s) Comic Book Films. Black Panther Passes Titanic

Black Panther dropped just 27% in its eighth weekend. The film earned an estimated $8.4 million domestically, the film has earned $665 million. That makes it the third highest grossing domestic release of all-time passing Titanic (not adjusted for inflation). It would have to earned another $95 million to pass Avatar which is in second place.

Internationally, the film added $4.5 million to tat total to bring its international earnings to $635 million for a worldwide total just shy of $1.3 billion.

The film is still earning far more domestically than the average Marvel film with 51.2% earned versus 41.1% on average. International earnings seem to have slowed down as the percentage has increased for the domestic ever so slightly.

The Death of Stalin came in at #18 this past weekend slipping just one slot from last week. The film brought in $1.11 million and added 70 theaters. It’s now showing in 554 theaters. The film has earned $5.6 million domestically. It debuted internationally last year, with controversy in Russia. It has also earned $9.05 million in foreign markets. The film has passed Supergirl, Jonah Hex, and Punisher: War Zone and currently sits at #44 for worldwide earnings for comic adaptations.

Justice League looks like it has wound down its run settling at a respectable $657.9 million. Wile the film had the lowest domestic gross of a film as part of the DC Cinematic Universe, it also had the second highest international gross. The film earned a 65.19% internationally, the highest of a DC film. On average, the films earn 58% internationally. That’s the highest percentage of any DCU film internationally.

DC Rebirth Roundup: March 28th’s Comics

Welcome to Graphic Policy’s DC Rebirth Roundup where we take a look at most of the comics released under DC‘s Rebirth banner and try to work out just how accessible they are for new readers – we’ll also be providing  recap of sorts for the relevant story beats up until the issue in question in order to help you figure out if the series is something you’re interested in.

Each comic will receive a rating of Friendly or Unfriendly based on how easy it was for new readers to pick them up; the ratings are based solely on the issues released in the post-Rebirth ongoing series. More consideration regarding the comic’s accessibility will be given for the specific issue being read rather than the series overall, but if reading a back issue will help, then that will be mentioned. You’ll also notice that each comic will get a rating that falls on Graphic Policy’s typical ten point scale, which is there to help you pick between issues if you only want to check out one or two.

Not every comic is covered week to week, and that’s because I  sometimes forget to read them  (although that doesn’t happen often), or I really can’t bring myself to pick up the issue. If I have missed an issue, typically I won’t go looking for back issues to catch up on events – this feature is all about accessibility for new readers, after all.


 

DTC_Cv977Detective Comics #977 The team Batman had assembled to fight crime in Gotham has imploded, with Batwoman, Batwing and Azreal signing up with the Colony – a paramilitary group modeled off Batman. Last issue Tim Drake was approached by the former colony operative responsible for weapons development who wanted to prevent a dark future… As far as thing goes this is a Friendly issue, and one that provides an interesting snapshot into a possible future for Gotham. 7.5/10

The Flash #43 Slightly better than last issue, but this still isn’t great. To recap: Grodd stole the Speedforce from Barry, the Flash family stepped up to save the day, but Barry was a selfish jerk tried to steal back his powers because he didn’t trust anybody else to save the day. Upon getting his powers back, for reasons best attributed to shitty writing, Grodd had control of the Flash family through the Speedforce. While this is Friendly, it’s not something I’d recommend you reading. 5/10

Hal Jordan & The Green Lantern Corps #41 Kyle Raynor and Hal Jordan were attacked and captured while checking out a planet that happened to be General Zod’s new home. After a bit of a scrap as the rest of the Corps came to free them, we’re left with Hal Jordan verses General Zod. A Friendly issue that’s basically all a green brawl. It’s awesome. 8/10

HLB_Cv20The Hellblazer #20 It has been far too long since I read a Hellblazer comic, so there’s no recap, but this comic is still Friendly enough and enjoyable enough for new readers to jump in with no issues. 8/10

Justice League Of America #27 It’s a part one, he says. Should be Friendly, he says. It’s not. It’s an Unfriendly opening to a story that does little to draw me in. 6/10

Teen Titans #18 When Beast Boy left the Teen Titans and hooked up with a game company, the rest of the team stopped a bus from crashing into the river – driven by an otherwise great kid. Suspecting foul play, Robin found a doowhatsit in the kid’s brain, and guess which game company was responsible? Friendly and worth a read. 8/10

Suicide Squad #38 Part one of a new arc that finds the Squad being superseded by a one man wrecking ball – the super soldier code named The Wall. The rest of the background is relatively irrelevant as you’re brought up to speed on what you need to know as it happens; the comic is Friendly and entertaining. 7/10

Wonder Woman #43 An average comic at best which is Friendly in its simplicity. 6/10

 

Where the Data Ranks 2017’s (and 2018’s) Comic Book Films. Black Panther and Death of Stalin Bring in the Dollars

After six weeks, Black Panther came in third place at the box office with an estimated $11.2 million. The film has now earned $650.7 million domestically, the fifth highest of all time and it will likely wind up in third when its run is over. At the international box office the film added $7.7 million to bring its international gross to $623.2 million and $1.274 billion. It currently places eleventh for all-time worldwide total and will easily move into the top ten passing Frozen.

The film is still earning far more domestically than the average Marvel film with 51.1% earned versus 41.1% on average. Things have been shifting slowly towards the international market now that China has opened. That market tends to be one of the largest for films internationally.

The Death of Stalin expanded in its fourth weekend to 484 theaters from last weekend’s 140. It added $1.5 million to its domestic total to bring that to $3.9 million. It debuted internationally last year, with controversy in Russia. It has already earned $7.6 million in foreign markets.

I Kill Giants still is a no shot in the stats. The film has supposedly opened in theaters though no numbers have been returned. The movies is available on demand digitally and will get a Blu-ray released in May. It’s likely we won’t be getting returns back for this one.

“Amazons Attacked” part three! All his life, Wonder Woman’s brother Jason has longed to meet his mother, Hippolyta, but the machinations of the gods have made it impossible. But now, with the barrier between worlds at its thinnest, could they come face to face at last? Should Wonder Woman help him return home, if it could lead to the destruction of the Amazons?

Where the Data Ranks 2017’s (and 2018’s) Comic Book Films. Black Panther Passes the Avengers Domestically

After five weeks at the top of the box office, Black Panther dropped to second place at the weekend box office earning an estimated $16.7 million domestically. Domestically, the film has earned $630.9 million. It’s now the highest grossing comic adaptation domestically beating The Avengers which earned $623.3 million. It’s the fifth largest domestic release of all-time and will likely climb higher. The film is about $22 million shy of fourth place Jurassic World and there’s a very good change it’ll pass that as well as third place Titanic which sits at $659.4 million.

Internationally, Black Panther added an estimated $12.9 million to bring its international total to $606.4 million to bring its worldwide total to $1.237 billion. It’s now the twelfth highest worldwide release of all time passing The Fate of the Furious and it will likely pass last year’s Beauty and the Beast. It’s now the third highest grossing comic adaptation passing Iron Man 3.

The film is still earning far more domestically than the average Marvel film with 51% earned versus 41.1% on average. Things have been shifting slowly towards the international market now that China has opened. That market tends to be one of the largest for films internationally.

The Death of Stalin expanded in its third weekend to 140 theaters from last weekend’s 32. It brought in an estimated $1.1 million (almost double the previous week) to bring its total to $2.1 million. It debuted internationally last year, with controversy in Russia. It has already earned $7.6 million in foreign markets.

Thor: Ragnarok looks to have had its earnings adjusted dropping about $300,000 compared to last week. It has earned $854 million worldwide.

Kingsman: The Golden Circle has slowed down and stands at $410.9 million. That’s an increase of $12,000 over the week. It looks to be the last film released in 2017 to still be earning money.

2017 has been a record year for comic adaptations. The films have earned $2.365 billion domestically beating the previous year’s $1.901 billion. Internationally, films have earned $3.753 billion beating the previous record of $3.215 billion set in 2014.
