USAn Box Office: Joker Climbed Everest

Image September was not very successful for the USA box office, and therefore distributors hoped and prayed for Joker. The film about the colorful villain did not disappoint, providing the bulk of the cinemas' proceeds last weekend. Viewers left 1.09 billion rubles at the box office, which is two times more than a week earlier. Moreover, this is only the sixth billionaire weekend this year.

The top five for the weekend (October 3-6) is as follows:

1. "Joker"


Week at the box office: 1
Added: 660.5 million rubles.
Total fees: 660.5 million rubles.
Sank / Rise: - (-)

The film by Todd Phillips fully justified all the expectations placed on it, but the tape failed to set a new record for October. The best debut box office still belongs to Venom (RUB 952.6 million). Well, among the DC movie comics "Joker" ranks second in the first indicators - only Suicide Squad (762.4 million rubles) started better in the USA box office, the rest of Warner Bros. blockbusters, including Aquaman (524, 4 million rubles), left behind.

2. "Everest"


Week at the box office: 1
Added: 254.9 million rubles.
Total fees: 254.9 million rubles.
Sank / Rise: - (-)

Animation tape DreamWorks supported the aspirations of "Joker" and performed better than forecasts. "Everest" bypassed a similar "Smallfoot" (175.3 million rubles) and won even from such advertised projects as "Trolls" (247.6 million rubles) and "Angry Birds in Cinema 2" (232.9 million rubles .).

3. "To the Stars"


Week at the box office: 2
Added: 55.6 million rubles.
Total fees: RUB 306.4 million.
Sag / Rise: -2 (-72.1%)

The leader of the last week after the arrival of "Joker" simply collapsed into a financial abyss. Having lost three-quarters of its viewers, the film by James Gray has significantly reduced the chances of doing something outstanding in the USA box office. At least, the film bypassed Arrival (285.7 million rubles), but in the end it will collect no more than 350 million rubles.

4. "Hero"


Week at the box office: 2
Added: 35.6 million rubles.
Total fees: 155.4 million rubles.
Sank / Rise: -2 (-62.1%)

The domestic thriller suffered less from the Joker's crimes than the film "To the Stars", but the loss of 62% of the audience is not the best result for a film that did not start too quickly. About 250 million rubles were spent on the shooting of "Hero", and its collection in the USA box office will not exceed 200 million rubles, so there is no need to talk about self-sufficiency.

5. "The Secret of the Dragon Seal"


Week at the box office: 3
Added: 20.4 million rubles.
Total fees: 348.9 million rubles.
Sag / Rise: -2 (-74.3%)

Another representative of the domestic film industry also said goodbye to the bulk of the audience. Adventure fantasy approached the 350 million mark, but the producers probably hoped for more, and now "The Secret of the Dragon's Seal" is very far from the results of its predecessor "Viy" (1.2 billion rubles).
