‘Joker’ Sets New October Opening Day Record at Box Office

The Wrap Saturday, 5 October 2019
Warner Bros. has a reason to smile this weekend, as Village Roadshow/DC’s “Joker” is primed to blow by multiple October box office records. It already has one in the bag after grossing $39 million from 4,300 screens on Friday — including $13.3 million from Thursday previews — giving it the biggest opening day ever in October history.

After that big start, “Joker” is now estimated to reach the top end of independent tracker projections with a $92-93 million opening. That beats the October opening weekend record set last year by “Venom” ($80.2 million), and also beats the openings of fellow R-Rated comic book movie “Logan” ($88.4 million) and Warner Bros.’ last big release, “It: Chapter Two” ($91 million).

As expected, millennial males were the top demographic on Friday for “Joker,” as CinemaScore polls were 64% male, 68% over the age of 25, and 66% under the age of 35. While the movie’s relentless violence and bleak tone were sure to turn off some moviegoers, reception has remained generally positive with a 70% Rotten Tomatoes score being joined by a B+ from CinemaScore audience polls and a 4/5 from Postrak.

More to come…
