'Joker' tops N American film industry for the second week

WASHINGTON: Warner Bros' Joker chuckled right to the movies again this end of the week as it took $55.9 million in North American cinemas, industry watcher Exhibitor Relations said Monday.

Featuring Joaquin Phoenix, Joker gives the backstory to the ascent of Batman's twisted foe, painting a dim and upsetting depiction of an eventual stand-up entertainer's plummet into franticness.

A week ago, the movie coordinated by Todd Phillips — creator of The Hangover set of three — set a precedent for an October discharge, taking in $93.5 million in its first end of the week.

This weekend, United Artists' family-and Halloween-accommodating The Addams Family set second, producing $30.3 million for its opening run.

It pursues the puzzling and creepy tribe as they plan for a visit from some much creepier relatives.

In third, at $20.6 million, was Paramount's new film Gemini Man, which stars Will Smith as a resigned hired gunman who must go head to head against a more youthful clone of himself.

Loathsome from Universal came in fourth, down from a week ago's second, at $6.1 million.

The energized experience recounts to the account of a youngster and her companions attempting to enable a youthful Yeti to rejoin with its family as a well off man looks to catch it as a prize.

What's more, in fifth was Focus Features' Downton Abbey, at $4.9 million. The realistic follow-up to the hit TV arrangement has the distinguished Crawleys and their sincere staff scrambling to get ready for a surprising visit by the British royals.

Adjusting the end of the week's best 10 were:

Tricksters ($3.9 million)

Judy ($3.2 million)

IT: Chapter Two ($3.1 million)

Jexi ($3.1 million)

Promotion Astra ($1.9 million)
