Deadline released an article today about it’s :most valuable blockbustre tournament of 2022 and gives some solid figures about what Rob’s The Batman grossed both at cinema and streaming:

“When it comes to evaluating the financial performance of top movies, it isn’t about what a film grosses at the box office. The true tale is told when production budgets, P&A, talent participations and other costs collide with box office grosses, and ancillary revenues from VOD to DVD and TV. To get close to that mysterious end of the equation, Deadline is repeating our Most Valuable Blockbuster tournament for 2022, using data culled by seasoned and trusted sources.

Warner Bros made a controversial move to shift its 2021 theatrical slate to a day-and-date strategy with HBO Max. After great ire around town, Warners returned to a theatrical release window strategy with The Batman, and moviegoers promptly flocked back to the cinema to see it. The film became the fifth-biggest domestic opening ever in March with $134 million, and a $225M global debut. Newly installed Warner Bros motion picture bosses Michael De Luca and Pam Abdy soon signed Reeves to a multi-year first-look deal; he is spinning off his Batman universe into an HBO Max series centering around Farrell’s Penguin. Despite James Gunn and Peter Safran taking over DC from former head Walter Hamada and planning their own Batman movie, Brave & Bold, Reeves’ Batman 2, which is currently in script stage, remains on track. The sequel is billed as an else-world part of Safran and Gunn’s DC universe and has set a theatrical release of October 3, 2025.

Christopher Nolan Talks “TENET” Release with Los Angeles Times


The LA Times spoke with Christopher Nolan and Tom Shone in relation to Shone’s new retrospective book on Nolan “The Nolan Variations: The Movies, Mysteries, and Marvels of Christopher Nolan”. Here’s what Christopher Nolan had to say about the current release of Tenet:

It is, though, an argument for taking movies seriously. And it’s out in a moment when the film business is facing existential challenges because of COVID-19. How do you see the outlook for movies?

Nolan: Well, it’s a difficult question to speak to. If you’re talking about the acceleration of existing trends, that’s something I started reading right at the beginning of the pandemic. And it ignores the reality that 2019 was the biggest year for theatrical films in history. They’d made the most money. The admissions were huge. So to me, it’s much more about: What’s the new reality we’re living in?

Warner Bros. released “Tenet,” and I’m thrilled that it has made almost $350 million. But I am worried that the studios are drawing the wrong conclusions from our release — that rather than looking at where the film has worked well and how that can provide them with much needed revenue, they’re looking at where it hasn’t lived up to pre-COVID expectations and will start using that as an excuse to make exhibition take all the losses from the pandemic instead of getting in the game and adapting — or rebuilding our business, in other words.

Long term, moviegoing is a part of life, like restaurants and everything else. But right now, everybody has to adapt to a new reality.

Although some are saying that the US release may be considered a failure, Box Office Pro reports the following:

“Warner Bros.’ TENET registered its first domestic weekend under $1 million, earning $885k from 1,601 locations. The Christopher Nolan thriller is the top-grossing new release in North America since the pandemic with $53.8 million. … Internationally TENET earned $3.3 million from 62 markets over the weekend, including a $277k debut in Brazil (1,000 screens). Top global markets for the title include China ($66.5M), North America ($53.8M), Japan ($24.1M), UK ($22.7M), and France ($22.5M).”

Tenet’s international box office is USD293 million giving it a total of USD346.8 million. To check out previous box office head to our roundup HERE.

I used to do this a lot with Robert’s films, but then I realised that sometimes box office doesn’t really matter – I know it does to those involved trying to make a profit, but the reality is – how can some films make any money when they are slated at ridiculous times at the cinema and last a nanosecond.  Anyway, I’m not making excuses, it’s just how I personally feel.  But I know people, like Carmel, like this kind of information, so here I am.  So far in Australia, Queen of the Desert has made AUD105,772 in 71 cinemas over a period of 4 days – that is, 2 to 5 June 2016.

From UrbanCinefile:

In relation to worldwide box office, Box Office Mojo records the following (including Australian figures based on 4 days) – USD1,368,710:

According to The Numbers (figures below are also in USD -also the Australian figures are based on 3 days):

Current Estimates

So according to Indiewire:

“Not doing quite so well (though it was released day-and-date on VOD) in its third weekend was “Maps To The Stars,” which Focus Features took from 61 down to 17 theaters this weekend after an Oscar qualifying release in late 2014 (which did result in a Golden Globe nomination for Julianne Moore, but not much else). The result was a 71% drop from last weekend, with “Maps” taking in just $19,000 for a $1,118 per-theater-average. It has now grossed $313,700.”

Again, the above figures are estimates from Box Office Mojo, who still haven’t corrected their foreign totals figure.  I’m trying to get figures for Spain – fingers crossed.

Updated with actuals

As at 8 March 2015:  The figures at the moment are only “estimates”,  since the official figures usually don’t come out until tomorrow my time, but I thought I would share this information until then. According to Box Office Mojo the estimate so far is $264,100 (figures haven’t been updated for the weekend, but they are estimating it at $64,000), the week so far is $200,128.  It’s not bad considering I’m told that there is hardly any advertising for Maps in the US.  I am still trying to obtain the figures for VOD, so stay tuned.  If you haven’t seen it yet and you want to know where you can, head on over to our post for a full list of cinemas or how to watch at home here.
