Box Office Report For October 25-27


Welcome back one and all to the weekly box office report! As is always the case, each and every Sunday you can expect a look at what made the most money in theaters, as well as just how all of the new releases fared. This week, former champs Joker and Maleficent: Mistress of Evil battle it out for the top spot, while newcomers Black and Blue, Countdown, The Current War: Director’s Cut, and Western Stars also opened. How did they do? Read on to see how the weekend turned out…

Back in the top spot after a brief period out of it was Joker, with $18.9 million. Setting records throughout its run, Warner Bros’ comic book flick is going to end its time easily as the highest grossing R rated film of all time, which is really something. $277 million and counting, just domestically.

Moving down to number two was Maleficent: Mistress of Evil, with $18.5 million. This drop isn’t great, but considering it was just beaten by the fourth weekend of a movie is a particularly tough pill to swallow.

Fifth and sixth place went to Countdown and Black and Blue, respectively. The former made a shade over $9 million, while the latter took in $8.3 million. These are solid enough numbers for flicks without much of a profile, but without much competition, they probably should have been able to do more…

Also out this weekend was The Current War: Director’s Cut, which could only haul in about $2.7 million and land in the number nine spot. After a long delay, a severing from The Weinstein Company, and a new cut, at least it saw the light of day, right?

Among indie/limited release titles, the Bruce Springsteen concert film/documentary Western Stars opened in a handful of theaters and made 560K. Also, Jay and Silent Bob Reboot continued its unique platform unveiling, playing on a few more screens (seventeen in total now) as Kevin Smith tours it nationwide, making almost 220K…
