WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: Maleficent: Mistress of Evil tops the chart with 36MM... but the first one opened with 69MM; 150MM in overseas markets will help, but the production budget alone is reportedly 180MM. Joker places with 29.2MM on a 48 percent drop; with a little luck, it could hit the billion-dollar mark worldwide (and thereby greatly increase its prospects for awards season).  Zombieland: Double Tap shows with 26.7MM, a slight increase or decrease from the original, depending on whether you adjust for inflation.  The studio likely hoped for mor, given that the cast are all bigger stars than they were 10 years ago, but the 42MM budget wisely did not bank on that.  The Addams Family takes the fourth slotwith 16MM on a 47 percent drop; probably a slight disappointment this close to Halloween, but 56MMdomestic to date against a 24MM budget is probably fine.  Gemini Man rounds out the Top Five with 8.5MM on a 59 percent drop, looking like a flop even after overseas grosses are included.
