Box Office Report For November 1-3


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, a blockbuster franchise returns in Terminator: Dark Fate, competing for attention with the likes of Harriet, Motherless Brooklyn, and more. How did they do? Read on to see how the weekend turned out…

Taking over the top spot was Terminator: Dark Fate, though not with the dominating opening that James Cameron and company were hoping for. An estimated $29 million may even spell the end of the series, since that might not inspire further sequel confidence out of Paramount Pictures. Time will tell what happens for this franchise, but, it might not be back? (Pardon the pun)

In the runner up position was Joker, which just keeps on making major money. Another $13.9 million has the Warner Bros. hit an eyelash away from $300 million domestically. The more bank it makes, the harder it is not to look at the WB release as a more and more serious Academy Award player. We shall see, but it would be silly to bet against Joaquin Phoenix for at least a nomination right now in Best Actor.

Harriet had a solid start with $12 million, scoring an A+ rating from CinemaScore, rising above somewhat mixed critical reviews. If nothing else, this does help keep Cynthia Erivo in the Oscar conversation for Best Actress, as precursors get underway.

All the way down at number nine was Motherless Brooklyn, only able to bring in about $3.6 million. The Edward Norton passion project never quite connected with audiences, so expect this one to exit theaters far quicker than WB or Norton expected. Without question, a disappointment for everyone involved here.

Among indie/limited release titles, Jay and Silent Bob Reboot continued to make a few bucks with Kevin Smith’s roadshow style unveiling. On fifteen screens, it took in a shade over 225K. As the weeks progress, it will continue to be interesting to see how this one fares, but Smith must be pleased so far!
