It's going nuts in the UK. I've noticed on twitter that a lot of people who pertained to hate everything the movie (apparently) stood for still ended up seeing it.

 

 

BAFTA please come through! 🙏

Kermode gave it 4/5, so it's not all negative for them

Their initial review was 5*, out of Venice.

But that quickly turned around once the woke twitter response came in:

Oct 1s: Shortcuts Joker strives to capture our cultural moment – but it’s smug and banal at heart
Oct 2nd: Why so stupid: how Joker is too juvenile to be provocative

Oct 3rd: Joker review – the most disappointing film of the year

Oct 4th: Forget Joker: here's the film you should see about an extremist loner

 

:rofl:They really tried, didn't they?

I expect, as Kermode said, that a backlash against the backlash is starting - especially if audiences are sticking by the movie. If legs turn out alright, expect more and more think pieces about the movie actually nimbly subverting its pro-incel propaganda or some such bullshit.

This bit is interesting to me:

 Joker played to an ethnically diverse crowd: 44 percent of ticket buyers were Caucasian, followed by Hispanics (24 percent), African-Americans (16 percent) and Asians/Other (14 percent). The majority of the audience (65 percent) was between the ages of 18 and 34.

Clearly a lot of minority incels out there...

In Greece Joker had a bigger opening than any other comic book movie save Avengers : Endgame.Endgame opened with ~300K admissions vs 158K admission for Joker.Difference is that The tickets tally for Endgame opening includes 8 full days of release with showing starting at 12pm while The Joker number includes 5 days of release with showing starting at 10am.Amazing.PS never hinted that this would happen.

 

Edit: I also want to add that I went to see this for a second time yesterday and every showing was sold out...on a freaking Sunday.Fucking unbelievable.

It is very hard for WB to underestimate something that big based on track record, They always go bigger in estimated figure.

 

The sign of word of mouth??

After see joker preview night I figured wom would be better then I originally expected but not to this level and especially not those overseas numbers. It’s insane. I understand it’s the joker and it’s a cbm but it’s definitely not your typical cbm.

 

It’s going to be really interesting to see the legs for this and what it finishes at.

MONDAY UPDATE, Refresh for latest: Just as it has domestically, Warner Bros/Village Roadshow/Bron Studios’ Joker has come in higher in the overseas weekend actuals. A huge jump of $10.5M more than projected yesterday has lifted the international box office total to $151M through Sunday. With North America’s tally, the worldwide weekend gross grows to $247M.

first 900m cbm 

:ohmygod:

Let's not go overboard. It's a quarter billion launch, sure, without two major markets until next week, but without China... It would need some amazing legs, to match this mind-blowing launch. Not impossible, but VERY unlikely. This time next week we'll have a better understanding, obviously, but for now, it's an unqualified success, so that's reason enough to celebrate for WB.

Lmao at WB being off by 10mil. 

Certainly a nice direction to be off in. Clearly they weren’t expecting these OS numbers 🤑

I will never understand why studios won't just release actual weekend numbers on monday without projecting the weekend on sunday morning. Why they are doing it?
