Weekend Thread: Weekend Estimates - Jokah 55, Addams 30.3, Gemini 20.5, Abominable 6.2, Downton 4.9 | Parasite generates 125.4K PTA (highest since La La Land)

Recommended Posts

Joker was the perfect combination.

 

Popular comic book character. Generational actor/performance. Arthouse  flair. R-rated drama. Taps into the cultural zeitgeist of today. Leaves you dumbfounded and thinking.

 

No wonder this is firing on all financial cylinders. I didn’t think it would do this well however. WB’s rollout was absolutely perfect. I think the decisiveness of the reviews added to the intrigue.

 

The two trailers for Joker are among the best this year.

 

Joker is all but certain to overtake Venom worldwide, and that’s perfect. Better than I thought possible.

How is Sunday going? 

Too early to predict a number but PS is down 25% from yesterday. Could have even better drop than that as day time shows can keep pace with yesterday but let us wait until evening before predicting a number.

It's why I always laughed at stupid internet comments about WB selling the rights when BvS and then especially JL underperformed. Like, seriously? Even when they leave money on the table, they're still the biggest thing WB has going and when they REALLY knock it out of the park, the potential is gigantic.

I dare not dream of the billion just yet, but it's no longer an absurd number, after those gob-smacking international holds. Japan will also recover after the typhoon, and if France and Germany prove as leggy as the rest of Europe, well... amazing things can happen.

Going to be an interesting week to follow, that's for sure.

 

Considering I don't much love the movie, I REALLY want it to do a billion. Just the sheer fact that a low budget, R rated movie like this would do a billion makes me giddy. All those comic book movie fatigue articles being put on hold...

whoever even thought of superhero fatigue after   2,8 billion of endgame is an idiot to say the least

Joker's success is proof that rated R isn't dead.  Give people something worthwhile and you can put butts in seats.  Yes,  it loses the kids audience but there are 3-4 new kids movies every weekend.  They aren't hurting for options.

I think this proves what could be the future for superhero films sure people like light hearted stuff but people like R rated and serious as well.

their highest grossing movie every year since 2016 has been a DC movie (and they'll keep that streak going with wonderwoman2 and batman probably) so i'm pretty sure they know it's important.

I wonder if the media begging for a shooting deflated the OW, I know WOM is good but is it that good for that kind of hold? Especially because it isn't a "feel good" movie. 

 

Then again, it did even better OS. 

Its not a feel good movie. While for me its an excellent movie I dont thinks this success is due to repeat viewings I think is just new viewers. 

 

Thats WOM.

It’s not just film revenue, Batman alone makes hundreds of millions in merchandise sales.

The Joker is the biggest DC character ever.

Not even a debate.

I don't think it has any impact, because outside the US Joker has great reviews in the vast majority of countries, it's word of mouth that is great+Joaquin performance+Joker charisma.

Definitely one of them but I still believe Batman is tops for DC characters.

 

I’m not saying reeves movies will outgross joker or not but Batman will always have the most potential to be the biggest imo.

I'm curious what the next official announcement will be. I'm hoping there'll be some JJ/Superman Family news after TROS, but I bet we'll get at least one additional release date before then. The candidates would seem to be Flash, Black Adam, New Gods, Batgirl, or that rumored Lex Luthor movie. I'll go with Flash, just because I'm an eternal optimist!
