With Joker breaking records on its opening weekend, it is also worth mentioning that Downton Abbey has collected an impressive gross so far with such a small budget. When the film was announced, it was met with a mixed response from critics and fans – but nobody expected it to make as much money as it did.
With a production budget of $20 million, Downton Abbey has a impressive gross of $135.4 million globally; beating the Hollywood heights of Rambo: Last Blood and Ad Astra. It is the best opening that Focus Features has ever had.
However, not everyone is impressed as many critics of the film have said that it is boring in comparison to the other films that are currently in cinemas. But the overall rating for the movie is high and has started a whole new realm of possibilites for other TV shows to follow suite and move their creation to the big screen.
What’s more? There’s a chance that Downton Abbey could get its own sequel in cinemas.
A review of Downton Abbey is coming soon.
