TDK made £48.7m which Joker will almost certainly beat. 
 

TDKR made £56.3m, and Dunkirk £56.8m.

 

I don’t think Joker will get that high, but it could perhaps reach The Avengers’ £51.9m.

It's been suggested it could get as close - or maybe beat Dunkirk's UK record; though it'll surpass the Fully Monty as the highest grossing adult film in the UK.

Star Wars tickets are on sale now. As expected target cinemas such as OLS and BFI IMAX are filling up fast. 
 

Not sure what the expect for this one, although I’d be surprised if it didn’t top TLK’s £75m for no.1 of 2019. TLJ made £82.7m, so perhaps around the £85-90m mark factoring in a bit of a finale factor.

#1 of 2019 should be Endgame, no?

Oh yeah lol.

 

Actually could be very close then as Endgame made £88.7m.

So today is the first day of Terminator Dark Fate.

Any chance it'll be #1 this weekend in the UK?

Possible as it has a 5 day opening. Doubt it wins Fri-Sun. Pre-sales look very weak, Joker still looks busier around my area tonight.

Thanks for the update.

With reviews out today (and hopefully a good wom), there at least is hope that sales will pick up.

What is the current gross for Joker at the UK box office? Has it entered the £50 million range?

As at Sunday, £40.3m. We don’t get daily figures in the UK, but by this Sunday it should be over £45m, and it’ll hit £50m in November.

Do you think half term in UK will help Joker hold in weekdays a bit better ?

In France because school holidays, Joker weekdays ( Mon-Tue ) did better this week than last week but maybe because it's only second week there.

It probably will give it a bit of a boost, but not on the same level as family films.

That's amazing! Looks like it will break a 22 year old record: surpassing the Full Monty to become the highest grossing R (15) rated film in UK history ~

There's a fair bit of competition, there's Jumanji: The Next Level but also Cats.

Jumanji should not be underestimated.

 

It did $50m and almost 5x multiplier in the wake of Last Jedi. Not to mention Greatest Showman spawning too.

 

I have to be honest, anecdotal or not, I'm seeing just as many people excited for Jumanji as there are for Star Wars. Now I'm not saying that Jumanji is gonna do £80m, but I think £40m+ is reasonable, and with that much going out, you can't help but think Star Wars will be affected some way.

Vue and Odeon aren't being fully sold out as reported - unless its the VIP seats from the midnight-showings to a few days after ~

Total sell outs are very rare outside of midnight shows this far out thanks to reserve seating. There's probably a tolerance they're using for not doing the front row or far side seats.

So Joker stays at the top (Fri-Sun) for a 4th week despite a host of new films. Very impressive. Pretty bad for Terminator, but who’s surprised?

Isn't that also mean Joker drop > 50%, if it's gross <2.8m and >2m ? Hopefully in 2.5-2.7m range.

Possibly although I’d be surprised if it was over 50%. Have to wait for estimates this afternoon.
