    'Maleficent: Mistress of Evil' Tops the Weekend, but Falls Short of Expectations



    This weekend saw the release of two new sequels and Disney's Maleficent: Mistress of Evil topped the chart as expected, albeit with a lighter performance than expected. However, Sony's Zombieland: Double Tap came in on the high side of expectations while WB's Joker continued its strong run and will soon top $250 million domestically. Elsewhere, Neon's Parasite, A24's The Lighthouse and Fox Searchlight's Jojo Rabbit all had strong showings in limited release.

    With an estimated $36 million, Disney's Maleficent: Mistress of Evil opened atop the weekend box office, but failed to reach studio or industry expectations. The performance is also nearly half of the $69.4 million opening for the 2014 original. We saw early signs the film might struggle as noted in our weekend preview when looking at IMDb page view data, but it does appear those that did make their way to theaters to see the follow up enjoyed it, giving the film an "A" CinemaScore and it currently holds a 96% audience score on RottenTomatoes. Overall, the film played to a crowd that was 56% female and 54% were aged 25 or older, compared to 60% female for the original, which also played a little younger.

    Internationally, Maleficent launched in all major markets, bringing in an estimated $117 million for a $153 million global debut. Leading the way was a $22.4 million opening in China followed by Russia ($10.7m), Mexico ($7.8m), Indonesia ($4.8m), Italy ($4.7m), Korea ($4.6m), Brazil ($4.5m), UK ($4.3m), France ($3.9m), Thailand ($3.7m), Philippines ($3.5m), Germany ($3.4m) and Spain ($3.2m).

    In second is yet another strong performance from WB's Joker, dipping -48% in its third weekend in release. The film's three-day estimate comes in at $29.2 million for a domestic cume that now tops $247 million. Internationally, the film added another $77.8 million for an overseas cume that now tops $490 million and a worldwide total that now stands at $737.5 million.

    Sony's Zombieland: Double Tap is the weekend's other new wide release and it delivered on the high end of industry expectations, bringing in an estimated $26.7 million for the three-day weekend. Notable in this day and age, it also debuted higher than its predecessor, outperforming the $24.7 million opening for Zombieland. Of course, given that film opened ten years ago it isn't exactly an apples-to-apples comparison. The film received a "B+" CinemaScore from opening day audiences and played to a crowd that was 57% male — which is almost the exact opposite compared to the first film — and 56% of the overall audience was aged 25+.

    Internationally, Double Tap debuted in one market last weekend and is now playing in 17 overseas markets where it grossed $5 million this weekend for a cume that currently stands at $5.3 million. The UK led all markets with a $1.7 million performance this weekend followed by Australia with a $1.3 million debut. Looking ahead, the film will open in Russia, Brazil and Mexico next weekend followed by openings in France (Oct 30), Germany (Nov 7), South Korea (Nov 13), Italy (Nov 14) and Japan (Nov 22).

    In its second weekend of release, United Artists Releasing's animated comedy The Addams Family grossed an estimated $16.05 million over the weekend, pushing the film's domestic cume to $56.8 million after ten days in release.

    Rounding out the top five is Paramount's Gemini Man dipping -59% as it kicks off its sophomore frame with an estimated $8.5 million for a domestic cume that now stands at $36.5 million. Internationally, the film brought in an estimated $33.4 million this weekend, the bulk of which coming from a $21 million opening in China. The film's overseas cume now stands at $82.2 million for a global total reaching $118.7 million.

    Outside of the top five, Focus's Downton Abbey reached a milestone recently, becoming the studio's highest grossing film ever at the domestic box office. With an estimated $3.08 million as it enters its fifth week in release, the film's domestic cume now stands at $88.6 million, besting the previous record held by 2005's Brokeback Mountain with $83 million.

    Finishing just outside the top ten is Neon's release of Parasite, which is now playing in just 33 locations (+30) and brought in an estimated $1.2 million ($37,616 PTA) for a domestic cume that now stands at $1.8 million after ten days in release.

    Another strong performance in limited release comes from A24's The Lighthouse, which debuted in eight locations in NY, LA, SF, Boston, and Washington D.C. with an estimated $419,764 ($52,471 PTA). The film, which stars Robert Pattinson and Willem Dafoe expands nationwide next weekend, expected to play in over 500 theaters.

    Not too far behind it is yet another limited release in Fox Searchlight's Jojo Rabbit, which debuted this weekend in just five locations and brought in an estimated $350,000, topping the chart with a $70,000 per theater average. The film received an "A" CinemaScore and played to a crowd that was 51% female. Looking ahead, it will add eight new markets next weekend while expanding further in New York and Los Angeles bringing the screen total to between 50+ locations.

    Elsewhere in limited release, National Geographic's The Cave brought in $22,100 from two theaters; Freestyle's Immortal Hero launched in 12 locations with an estimated $18,845 ($1,570 PTA); IFC's Greener Grass opened in two locations and brought in an estimated $14,133); Music Box's opened a pair of films including By the Grace of God in two theaters with an estimated $8,188 and Stuffed in one location with an estimated $1,534

    Next weekend Screen Gems will release the cop thriller Black and Blue in ~2,000 theaters; STX will get into the Halloween season with Countdown in 2,600 locations and 101 Studios will go wide with The Current War: Director's Cut in an as yet undisclosed number of locations.

    Re: Box Office - Updated Every Monday

    Joker narrowly holds off Maleficent to return to the weekend's top spot.



    It's a narrow race at the top of the box office, but based on estimates WB's Joker was able to return to the weekend #1 spot after a brief respite last weekend as Disney's Maleficent: Mistress of Evil falls to second in its sophomore frame Meanwhile it was an equally tight race for third as well as fifth with the new releases of Countdown and Black and Blue competing for that last spot in the top five.

    Returning to the top of the weekend box office is WB's Joker, which dipped just -35% as it entered its fourth week in release with an estimated $18.9 million three-day. The film's domestic cume now tops $277.5 million, which is enough to make it the seventh largest R-rated release domestically of all-time. Internationally the film added another $47.8 million this weekend, pushing the film's overseas total to $571.5 million for a global tally totaling nearly $850 million. This makes it the fifth largest DC Comics adaptation globally of all-time, topping Wonder Woman ($821.8m) and just behind Batman v Superman ($873.6m).

    Dropping to second after one weekend at #1 is Disney's Maleficent: Mistress of Evil, which fell -49.8% in its second weekend for an estiamted $18.5 million and a domestic cume that now totals $65.4 million. Internationally the film added another $64.3 million for an overseas cume that now tops $228 million for a global tally just shy of $294 million.

    In its third weekend of release, United Artists Releasing's animated comedy The Addams Family had the lowest drop on the board among holdovers, dropping just -28% as it enters its third week in release with an estimated $11.7 million three-day, lifting it to third place for a domestic cume that now stands at $72.8 million. Internationally, the film played in 19 markets this weekend and brought in an estimated $10.5 million for an overseas total that currently stands at $11.2 million for a worldwide cume totaling $84 million.

    The Addams Family's hold on third place, however, is slight as Sony's Zombieland: Double Tap came in with an estimated $11.6 million, dipping -57% in its second weekend for a domestic cume that now stands at $47 million. Internationally, the film brought in $9 million this weekend as it is now playing in 40 markets for an overseas cume now totaling $16.6 million and a global cume that stands at $63.6 million.


    STXfilms
    Rounding out the top five is STXfilms's horror thriller Countdown with an estimated $9 million debut. The performance for the $6.5 million production is on par with expectations while earning a "C+" from opening day audiences. The opening weekend crowd was evenly split 50% male and female with 78% coming in under the age of 35. Internationally, the film debuted in 16 markets with an estimated $1.7 million, led by a $480k launch in the UK.

    In sixth we find Screen Gems's R-rated action/thriller Black and Blue, which took in an estimated $8.3 million to go along with an excellent, "A+" CinemaScore. The film played to a crowd that was 54% male with 66% of the overall crowd coming in aged 25 or older.

    Elsewhere in the top ten, A24's The Lighthouse had a solid showing as it expanded into 586 locations (+578) with an estimated $3.08 million and will expand further this next weekend as its domestic cume currently stands at $3.66 million after ten days in release.

    Just behind it, 101 Studios's release of The Current War: Director's Cut finished on par with expectations, delivering an estimated $2.7 million from 1,022 locations. The film received a "B" CinemaScore from opening day audiences while playing to a crowd that was 55% male and 35% of the audience was aged 35 or older.

    Outside the top ten there is plenty to mention beginning with Fox International's Housefull 4, which opened in 315 locations with an estimated $880,000 ($2,794 PTA); Kanye West's Jesus is King, which debuted in 372 IMAX locations with an estimated $830,000 ($2,231 PTA); and WB's Bruce Springsteen doc Western Stars opened in 537 theaters with an estimated $560,000 ($1,043 PTA).

    Further down the list, additional limited releases include Atlas's No Safe Spaces, which opened in one theater with an estimated $45,236; Metrograph's re-release of Downtown 81 in one theater with an estimated $25,000; and Sony Classics's release of Frankie in four theaters with an estimated $22,941 ($5,735 PTA).

    Next weekend sees the release of Paramount's Terminator: Dark Fate in over 3,500 theaters; Arctic Dogs will play in over 3,600 locations; Harriet will open in ~2,000 theaters; and Warner Bros. will release Motherless Brooklyn in over 1,250 theaters.

    Ford v Ferrari Races to #1 while Joker becomes first Rated R film to top 1 billion globally.



    Fox's Ford v Ferrari more than lived up to the most aggressive of pre-weekend expectations, delivering a #1 performance at the domestic weekend box office. However, Sony's Charlie's Angels struggled mightily in its debut, failing to reach the lowest of expectations, which means the film's third place finish puts the weekend's overall performance into perspective. In better news, WB's Joker became the fourth DC Comics adaptation to ever top $1 billion at the global box office and the first R-rated movie to ever reach that milestone.

    Finishing in the winner's circle atop the weekend box office, is Fox's Ford v Ferrari with an estimated $31 million. The performance is well ahead of Mojo's pre-weekend forecast and even tops the most optimistic of industry expectations and comes with an outstanding "A+" CinemaScore. The film played to a male-dominated crowd with men making up 62% of the audience and 79% of the overall crowd coming in aged 25 or older.

    Internationally, Ford v Ferrari brought in $21.4 million from 41 markets for a $52 million global debut, enjoying #1 openings in several including Russia, which serves as the film's top international market with a $3.2 million debut. Additional openings include the UK ($2.3m), France ($2.3m), Australia ($1.7m), Italy ($1.3m), Mexico ($1.1m) and Germany ($1.0m). Upcoming releases include a December 5 release in Korea followed by Japan on January 10.

    Lionsgate's Midway slipped to second this weekend, dipping -51% with an estimated $8.75 million for a domestic cume that now tops $35 million after ten days in release. The film's position in the top ten, however, is a tight one as two more films have a chance of moving up the list once actuals come in tomorrow.

    First in line, competing for second place, is Sony's Charlie's Angels, which was expected to finish anywhere from $12-13 million this weekend, but was ultimately unable to hit double digits, delivering a disappointing $8.6 million debut. The $48 million production received a "B" CinemaScore from opening weekend audiences, which were 61% female with 55% of the overall audience coming in aged 25 or older.

    Internationally, Angels began its overseas play in 26 markets with an estimated $19.3 million, including a $7.7 million opening in China. The film also brought in $1.3 million with a second place finish in Australia and another $1 million from Russia. Upcoming releases including a November 29 release in the UK followed by Spain (Dec 5), France (Dec 25), Mexico (Jan 1), Germany (Jan 2), Italy (Jan 9), Japan (Jan 21) and South Korea (Feb 26). Overall, the film is looking at a disappointing, $27.9 million global debut.

    Paramount's Playing with Fire, holding on extremely well in its sophomore frame, dipped just -33% for an estimated $8.55 million, moving the film up one spot from its opening last weekend, though once actuals come in it could move up a bit more. The film's domestic cume now stands at $25.4 million as the studio appears to have a small family hit on their hands.

    Internationally, Playing with Fire maintained its release in the same 11 markets from last weekend and added another $1.3 million for an overseas cume that now stands at $4.5 million. The film will open in Australia in mid-December followed by releases in the UK (Dec 27), Spain (Jan 17), Brazil (Jan 23) and Germany and Russia in early February.

    Rounding out the top five is Universal's Last Christmas with an estimated $6.7 million, pushing the film's domestic cume to $22.6 million after ten days in release. Internationally the film added $8.6 million for a $13 million overseas cume and a global total that now stands at $35.5 million.

    Further down the list, WB's The Good Liar debuted in 2,439 locations and delivered on expectations with an estimated $5.65 million, The film received a "B" CinemaScore while playing to a crowd that was 60% female with 85% of the overall crowd coming in aged 35 or older. Internationally, the film began playing overseas last weekend and is now playing in 12 markets where it grossed an estimated $1.5 million for an international cume that now stands at $3.9 million for a worldwide total reaching $9.6 million.


    In eighth position is where WB's Joker finished this weekend at the domestic box office, adding another $5.6 million to its now $322.6 million domestic cume. However, it's the film's global performance that is making news this weekend as the film became only the fourth DC Comics adaptation, the seventh release of 2019 and the first ever R-rated movie to top the $1 billion mark. Equally impressive is the Joker is only the third movie ever to top $1 billion without a China release, the other two being fellow DC adaptation The Dark Knight and 2006's Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest.

    Overall, to go along with its $322.6 million domestically, Joker added $13 million this weekend internationally for an overseas cume totaling $694 million and a global tally reaching $1.017 billion. The performance currently places the film 43d all-time at the worldwide box office, just ahead of The Dark Knight ($1.004b).

    In limited release, A24's Waves delivered an estimated $144,562 for a chart-topping, $36,140 per theater average. The film will open in top markets this coming weekend and continue to rollout slowly into the holiday season. Additionally, Roadside debuted The Warrior Queen of Jhansi in 276 locations with an estimated $125,395 ($454 PTA) and Utopia's Mickey and the Bear opened in one theater with an estimated $9,523.

    Next weekend will see Disney's Frozen II explode into over 4,200 theaters alongside Sony's A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood in 3,100 locations and STX's action thriller 21 Bridges, debuting in ~2,700 theaters.

    You can check out all of this weekend's estimated results right here and we'll be updating our charts with weekend actuals on Monday afternoon.
