"Doctor Sleep" Struggles At The Box Office But "Joker" Hangs On

  • Weekend box office Midway and Doctor Sleep battle for the top spot

Though "Midway" arrived ahead of tracking, the US$100 million film still has a long and arduous journey ahead to achieve profitability. The film revolved around the Battle of Midway during World War II in June 1942, a smart release for Veterans Day weekend.

"Doctor Sleep", meanwhile, comes as a big shock for Warner Bros. during an autumn in which it kept moviegoers buying tickets with "It: Chapter Two" and "Joker", the latter of which has only now fallen out of the top 5 in its sixth weekend and is on the verge of becoming the first R-rated release to gross $1 billion worldwide.

Despite the gloomy picture for the market, reps for Lionsgate tell TheWrap that the studio is pleased about how "Midway" performed, beating pre-weekend projections of a $12-14 million opening.

"Doctor Sleep", set decades after the events in "The Shining", was more favored among critics (it holds a 73% average on Rotten Tomatoes compared to "Midway's" 41%). Mike Flanagan (Netflix's "The Haunting of Hill House") wrote and directed "Doctor Sleep", which sees Ewan McGregor take on the role of Danny Torrance, a man with psychic abilities who struggles with childhood trauma.

The studio is projecting an estimated $20.05 million for the 4-day holiday weekend through Monday (November 11). Paul Feig directed "Last Christmas", which stars Emilia Clarke, Henry Golding, and Emma Thompson.
