In the face of three new wide releases, there was no dethroning Joker from the weekend’s top spot as the film not only topped the weekend box office domestically, internationally and worldwide, it has already generated over $543 million globally in just its first twelve days in global release. As for the newcomers, UAR’s The Addams Family led the way with a solid second place debut while Paramount’s Gemini Man and Lionsgate’s Jexi struggled to find an audience.‘Joker’ Repeats at #1, ‘Addams Family’ Solid in Second and ‘Parasite’ Feasts – Box Office Mojo
This was not a good opening week for the new films leaving a wide open field for Joker to dominate for a second week. On Friday we caught Gemini Man in 3D + HFR, Saturday date night watched Jexi and barely avoided sleep in the theater on Sunday with Addam’s Family (2019). Here they are ranked from our most entertained to least:
Jexi ⭐️⭐️⭐️ – a few funny jokes here and there from a mean funny phone OS named Jexi and a romcom with a little chemistry between a loser writer nerd and bike shop girl. Barely recommended.
Gemini Man ⭐️⭐️ 3D + HFR – good technology, weak script and three times Will Smith equals zero times entertainment.
Addam’s Family ⭐️⭐️ – good animation and voice acting despite boring, story. Just hum the theme song and watch something else.
The first weekend of October was much better. Joker deserves to be #1 again at the box office. Next weekend? Stay tuned!
