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).
A pair of sequels battles it out this weekend but Zombieland: Double Tap has the edge over Maleficent: Mistress of Evil, at least according to the critics.
There seems to be a massive lack of horror for October 2019 in theaters but you can check out movies like Joker, Gemini Man, Zombieland: Double Tap, The Addams Family and more.
