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.
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.
