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.
Closing out the bloody and ridiculous carnage of Maniac Cop 2, composer Jay Chattaway and Peter Levin delivered the wonderfully cheesy “Maniac Cop Rap” over the end credits, which basically goes over the entire premise of the series with funky beats and ridiculous rhymes.
