Box Office Recap – 10/14/2019


Joker topped the box office for a second weekend in a row, bringing in $55 million in receipts, and generating $543 million all told in its first 12 days of release. The film stars Joaquin Phoenix as a psychotic clown, and despite its controversial depiction of violence, fans seem to be flocking to see it.  

The Warner Bros. film dropped just 43% in its second weekend out, an impressive record for a comic book movie. 2016’s Batman vs. Superman dropped 70% in its second weekend out, while Logan dropped 57%. 

“This second weekend hold indicates more than just comic book fans are showing up,” Shawn Robbins, chief analyst at Boxoffice.com, told CNN Business. “It’s a movie with multiple creative elements resonating with those craving a grittier, wholly character-driven film set in a comic book world.”

The Addams Family bowed with a solid second place debut at $30 million, and Will Smith’s Gemini Man rounded out the top three with $20.5 million.
