Frozen II remained at the top of the box office for the third weekend in a row while the Playmobil movie was an unmitigated disaster with one of the worst opening weekends of all time.
Frozen II continued its domination over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend but Knives Out was able to successfully counter-program and exceed expectations for its opening weekend.
Shocking no one, Frozen II debuted with one of the biggest animated openings of all time both domestically and around the world.
Ford vs Ferrari easily crushed the competion over a slow weekend while Joker is now officially the first R rated film in history to cross over $1 billion worldwide.
Doctor Sleep seemed like the shoo-in winner going into this past weekend but it drastically underperformed, leaving the door open for Midway to take the top spot at the box office.
Terminator: Dark Fate won the weekend box office but it was an extremely weak opening that could end up costing Paramount over $100 million in losses while Joker inches closer to $1 billion worldwide and Harriet performed well above expectations.
After topping the box office over its opening weekend, Maleficent: Mistress of Evil dropped to second place as Joker returned to the top spot in its fourth week of release and it also became the highest grossing R rated film of all time worldwide.
Maleficent: Mistress of Evil took the top spot at the box office over the weekend but it was far below the opening of the first movie and below expectations, while Joker is on track to become the highest-grossing R rated film of all time worldwide (without adjusting for inflation).
Joker remained extremely strong in its second weekend, delivering the best second weekend in October history, while Gemini Man and Jexi failed to deliver and The Addams Family performed slightly above expectations.
Despite, or probably because of, mass hysteria and also critical acclaim, Joker had the biggest October opening of all time over the past weekend and one of the biggest R rated openings as well.
