weekend box office joker addams family gemini man

The weekend box office returns are in, and once again, Joker reigns supreme. The Todd Phillips movie starring Joaquin Phoenix as a crazy killer clown who loves to dance ended up at the top of the box office for the second week in a row. As far as new releases go, The Addams Family had a strong opening at second place. But Gemini Man, starring Will Smith and Will Smith, had trouble drawing a crowd. The real winner of the weekend, though, was Bong Joon Ho‘s Parasite, which only opened in three theaters, but hauled in the largest per-theater average of the year.

terminator dark fate box office

Will Terminator: Dark Fate finally break the curse of terrible Terminator sequels? Every movie in the franchise has been trying, and failing, to live up to the glory of James Cameron’s original The Terminator and its sequel Terminator 2: Judgement Day, with disappointing results. But Dark Fate is hoping to change things up with some familiar faces.

James Cameron is back (producing), and Linda Hamilton is returning to the franchise for the first time since T2. And it looks as if all of this might be enough to lure in a crowd – because early Terminator Dark Fate box office tracking indicates the sequel might be headed towards a franchise-best opening weekend.

box office tracking gemini man

Two new wide-release movies are headed to theaters this weekend: Ang Lee’s Gemini Man, and the rather terrible-looking animated Addams Family movie. But it looks like the Clown Prince of Crime will continue to reign, as box office tracking indicates that Joker is expected to remain in first place. Not even two Will Smiths and cartoon Oscar Issac are enough to stop Joaquin Phoenix and his weird dance moves.

weekend box office abominable

As I’m sure you’ve realized by now, the weekend is over. Which means it’s time to tally up the weekend box office and see which movies came out ahead, and which sank like a stone. The weekend’s big winner was Abominable, an animated pic from Universal. Second place went to the tea-drinking inhabitants of Downton Abbey, a film that held strong in its second week of release. Meanwhile, both Hustlers and It Chapter Two are still holding strong. All in all, no one had a bad weekend at the box office. Unless you hate every single movie playing right now, in which case, you had a pretty bad weekend. Sorry.

Frozen II Bruni and Elsa

This fall brings Frozen II to theaters, the highly anticipated sequel to Walt Disney Animation’s original fantasy musical from all the way back in 2013. Are fans still hungry to see what’s going on with Anna and Elsa after six years? Or have they let it go? If the long range Frozen II box office predictions come to fruition, it would appear that Frozen fever is still alive and well, and the sequel’s opening weekend could more than double the original movie’s debut at the box office.

weekend box office it 2

Another weekend has ended, which means two things: one, we all have to return to the drudgery of work. And two, the weekend box office results are in. While there were a few new contenders at the multiplex, Pennywise and the Losers’ Club held fast with It Chapter Two staying at number one. But the highly-acclaimed Hustlers had a great weekend, too, exceeding expectations. The same can’t be said for the prestige drama The Goldfinch, which could not take flight in the wake of scathing TIFF reviews.

James Cameron reaction

Director James Cameron held the top spot on the box office charts for more than twenty years, first with 1997’s Titanic and then overtaking his own record with 2009’s Avatar. But that record was toppled earlier this year by Avengers: Endgame, and while Cameron sent a congratulatory message to Marvel Studios after Endgame surpassed Avatar, some have wondered how he really felt about losing that top spot after so many years.

Turns out he’s OK with it, largely because he views it as a good sign for the possibilities of Avatar 2. Read some of the highlights from this new James Cameron reaction below.

IT Chapter 2 Box Office

Pennywise missed all of you, but it sounds like you missed him just as much, despite his penchant for murdering children and adults alike. It Chapter 2 arrived in theaters this past weekend and totally scared away the competition with an opening weekend haul of $91 million in the United States. The second place film, Angel Has Fallen, could only muster up $6 million, which Pennywise would surely laugh at while chomping on some popcorn and a small boy’s arm. Find out the rest of the weekend box office numbers below. Read More »
